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.
Film #11 in The Star Trek Marathon!
Hats off to the writers and director J.J. Abrams for boldly going where no man has gone before.. back in time to explore the origins of our iconic heroes! Huge props for fleshing out the characters and for injecting new life into the often referenced mythos and lore that up until now existed only in the form of recalled memories or verbose dialogue!
Dispenses intense action like there is no tomorrow! Infused the story and characters with an unyielding sense of self, confidence and strength that it could easily be a stand alone film whose success is not dependent upon the viewer having to have a previous history with its…
"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.
Kirk and Spock for 2009 Cutest Screen Couple.
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…
Finally, a Star Trek movie you don't need any pretense for--but even better with!
la dejé pasar por wey y apenas la veo ahora. grave error, me habría encantado verla en cine. no soy el más grande fan de la forma en que abrams maneja las secuencias de acción, pero lo cierto es que aquí me parece más calmado de lo habitual, con elaboradas y muy padres set-pieces. algo hay de indiana jones en este james kirk (no vi el original y no sé si es así), y también en sus muchos chistes, en sus constantes ganas de hacer reír.
supongo que para el nostálgico de star trek esto fue algo así como el festival definitivo, dado el secundario de leonard nimoy y el pase de estafeta generacional. a mí, inesperadamente, me gustó mucho.
Few times a reboot can work, and this is one of them. The cast was perfectly choosen, and the story was nicely done so they can do whatever they want and fans can't get to upset. Then with the cameo that just sealed the deal, it made this one great sci-fi movie!
I thought it would be worse. It's actually pretty good.
Abrams for Star Wars. Wait what?
It's truly amazing how the lens flare manages to appear in even the unlikeliest of places... however, despite the lens flare obsession, it really is a thoroughly entertaining blockbuster.
95/100 | A | Amazing
J.J. Abrams boldly goes where no Trekkie has gone before with his 2009 reboot Star Trek. Combining superior character interaction, wit, humor, and amazing action sequences, this film successfully pays tribute to our Saturday morning flights with human Kirk and Vulcan Spock. In this spectacular refreshment, a surprisingly satisfying Chris Pine plays the former and a terrific Zachary Quinto plays the latter. Star Trek follows their first mission together as they protect their respective planets from the wrath of an angry Romulan (Eric Bana, OK) seeking revenge for the loss of his world. As time goes on, the special qualities of their relationship are never lost in Robert Orci's and Alex Kurtzman's script. The writers'…
I really enjoy J.J. Abrams reboot of Star Trek and the cast is perfection. I love the way each character is unique while still referencing the original. The movie feels both fresh and familiar.
Good: Love the use of Beastie Boys' Sabotage.
Bad: I can't believe I did not recognize Eric Bana for most of the movie, I knew I knew him but could not place him.
Meh: Time travel movies make my head spin.
"Dammit, man! I'm a doctor, not a physicist!"
"If you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
Hey, JJ Abrams, I dare you to do better (with Star Wars)
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
