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…
Puede ser más o menos fiel al trabajo original, puede tener trampas de guión como la forma en la que el capitán se encuentra con quien ya tu sabes en el planeta de hielo, pero lo que está claro es que ha sabido modernizar Star Trek, traerla a la primera plana de nuevo, que los jóvenes de hoy en día puedan conocer y disfrutar de la Enterprise como los antiguos fans, ¿no es lo mismo? vale, ¿es mejor o peor? no lo sé, a mi me gusta. Larga vida y prosperidad.
JJ's interpretation is ace.
Una buena película de ciencia ficción, bien hecha, acción mas que aceptable, efectos impresionantes, giros de guión... Pero la verdad aunque las versiones ultimate de los clásicos ya me empiezan a cansar esta en concreto la vi un poco de mala gana y me sorprendió gratamente.
Ahora bien, ¿porque le he puesto tres estrellas y no más?, pues porque le falta el factor X, aquello que no puedes cuantificar, ni expresar, aquello que te toca y te hace sentir, y esta película no lo tiene.
My first introduction to Star Trek. Kind of felt that the movie would have been better off without a plot with time travel, even though I understand why (to reboot the franchise in an honorable way). It made it more weird and confusing than it needed to be, espacially from a "Star Trek newbie" viewpoint. Had I been a Trekie for a long time, it is possible that the time travel stuff would not have bothered me at all. Apart from that, I liked it, and it made me want to watch more Star Trek. Into Darkness next, and then the older stuff.
Con cero star tres en mi historial la verdad es que muy bien.entiendo que al modernizarse ha ganado en acción pero es que yo no soy un trekie y vengó a pasármelo bien
Totally brilliant in being its own thing while never shitting on what's come before. The cast is superb, and the visuals are like nothing this franchise has ever seen. I can't look away for even a second during that phenomenal final act. Also, Giacchino actually rivals Goldsmith in the music department; I hum the theme like crazy.
PS - I've always loved the abundance of lens flare; makes the setting feel other worldly by design.
Y vuelve a funcionar.
Que yo haya visto las dos últimas películas de Star Trek tiene mérito, y es todo de J J Abrams.
I find myself defending this movie a lot actually - from diehard Trekkies and those who wouldn't watch a Star Trek movie even if nothing was on MTV. I knew nothing about the Trek world before I watched this except how to spread my fingers appropriately and utter "live long and prosper." Well, I was pleasantly surprised at how entertaining this was.
PS. I wasn't bothered by the lens flares.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
