The future begins
The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James Kirk, is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock, a Vulcan, was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely but powerful partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before. The human adventure has begun again.
Freeing itself from the baggage of the previous instalments by setting its plot in an alternate timeline, thus preserving the contents of the original series without entirely depending on it, Star Trek is the reboot of the highly popular franchise of the same name that attempts to resurrect its vast universe from the ground up for a new generation of viewers but it has a lot in store for the old Trekkies as well.
Taking place in an alternate reality from the original series, the story of Star Trek follows the early years of James T. Kirk & Spock, covering their time in Starfleet which is soon followed by them travelling aboard the USS Enterprise to go against Captain Nero; a…
"I like this ship! You know, it's exciting!"
Yes, I watched Star Trek on May 4th. Deal with it.
This...this is how you do an origin story/reboot. You've got the cast showing us these iconic characters, then putting their own unique little spin on them, whilst still being completely recognisable as Kirk/Spock/McCoy etc, the standout for me being Karl Urban as McCoy.
Then there's the film itself. This is probably one of the most enjoyable movies that came out in a pretty decent year for films in general. The action is exactly as adrenaline-fueled and exciting as you'd imagine, the soundtrack is one of the most awesome/triumphant I've heard and those opening ten minutes are simply outstanding.
But it really is all about the characters and the interactions between the cast. Which are just brilliant.
Bring on Into Darkness. Let's see what you've got.
I've been a Trekkie for as long as I can remember. Apart from the atrocious Voyager I've watched every series from back to front and back again. I love the universe, the characters and tech babble. And I'm really happy that Mr. Abrams loves all those things as well.
As far as tributes go they don't get much better than this. For it is a tribute first and a reboot second. The care that was taken in finding the perfect actors for these iconic roles pays off as they are all perfect. Unfortunately for most of them though they all get completely outacted by Karl Urban. His take on Doc McCoy is simply perfection and a joy to watch.
"So, we've managed to eliminate all enemy ships, no one on board was injured, and the successful rescue of the Kobayashi Maru crew is under way."
Nobody eats an apple like Chris Pine.
If the only Star Trek movie I like more than this one is Galaxy Quest then I'm a bad Star Trek fan, aren't I?
I don't think it's anywhere near perfect even for pulpy sci-fi (see previous review), but this is a film which uses spaceships and aliens to capture something resonant about family, friendship and masculinity, and that's something no amount of lens flares can ruin.
And it's just so much fun.

I'm so sorry, it's been a long day.

Still love the crap out of this one though.
This review got way out of hand. It was more an exercise for me, a very long term Trek fan, explaining to myself why I liked this installment above the others. In short, Sacrilege! I’ll save you the read. It’s my favourite Star Trek movie because I felt it captured the spirit of the original series and characters far better than the others. Simple as that.
I remember the fall of 1966 like it was yesterday. I was 7 years old, and we had just moved to a new city, Montreal, that summer. I’m not sure how it came to be that I was in charge of the remote control on that weeknight evening, but, flipping through the channels I…
Abrams put back the interest into Star Trek. Perfectly paced and fun science fiction. A good practice for Star Wars ;-)
Casting Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pine as father and son is the greatest casting choice that cinematic history has ever known.
It certainly feels like it knows it has a lot to prove, but with Abrams at the helm, Star Trek overcomes its storytelling shortcomings with its great imagery (even in spite of the obnoxious over-use of lens flares), powerful acting, and very apparent deep respect for its predecessors.
Star Wars might have it's competition. Star Trek is pretty fucking amazing and there's nothing that will change my mind about it.
This re-imaging of the original series is better than what the conventional wisdom has portrayed in the last few years since its release. The story, special effects, and the action is pretty good and better than what I expected when I went into the theater to see it. Yes, they use the time travel concept too much, but it makes the story work.
Ist der erste Film des reboots ein schlechter Film? Nein.
Ist es ein würdiger Nachfolger? Nein.
Im Grunde ist Star Trek ein Hybrid, einmal ein Film für Fans mit Hinweisen, Andeutungen und Verweisen auf die Originalserie. Das ist sogar charmant und teils witzig. Aber doch sehr konstruiert, nicht zuletzt mit der Verpflichtung Leonard Nimoys, mit dem Gedanken im Hinterkopf inszeniert die alten Fans zu befriedigen.
Der andere Teil stellt das junge Publikum zufrieden, auch mit den collen Sprüchen, den Actionszenen, den ordentlichen Effekten. Formal stimmt alles.
Doch wie so oft bei JJ Abrams und dem Katastrophen-Duo Orci und Kurtzman darf man nicht mal nur eine Sekunde innehalten und nachdenken was man da sieht auf der Leinwand. Das Script ist wieder…
