I've seen this movie in theaters, it's a good movie though it's a new generation movie it's still pretty close to the classics. Over all good movie.
What do you think, have you seen it?
I don't even like Star Trek but I thought this movie was great. Has a different feel than the other movies and TV shows.
Amazing, amazing movie. I think all the actors did such a good job playing homage to the original roles while still making the character their own. If you have a Star Trek background you're probably more likely to enjoy this than someone else, but I am by no means a Trekkie or sci-fi fan in general, but this movie is GREAT. The actors are amazing, the special effects are great, and the plot is enjoyable and easy to follow for even a novice sci-fi fan. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
So let's start with a confession. I was a Trekkie back in the day. However, this was not something I would have shouted from the rooftops, and in fact would demur on the subject unless in safe company.
When I heard of the new Star Trek movie to be released, I was both secretly thrilled and horrified. How could they (a) make YET ANOTHER Trek movie? and (b) how can you be true to Trek's past, do justice to iconic characters, and why must it be a prequel (which I almost categorically hate)?
While we never got round to watching this movie in the theater, the DVD release came timely for Christmas. My husband emptied the mailbox before I could and discovered his early present... and immediately sat down to watch it. I, naturally, only sat down too to see "how bad it was".
It turns out, this is by far my favourite Trek movie, and certainly one of the better sci-fi movies I've seen in a long time. They dispense with the technobabble that dogged previous Trek movies, and you need not be acquainted with the backstory to follow this one (although then you miss some of the fun insider moments). You don't need to be a Trekkie to watch, nevermind enjoy, this.
The cast reimagines Kirk, Spock, and company perfectly, without betraying or imitating. In particular, I loved Chris Pine's Kirk - so true to William Shatner and yet all his own. There is love, lust, action, revenge, loss, and friendship; you might not even so much notice the storyline itself because the viewer is sucked into the characters. In fact, this is what I remember about the movie the next day - not what happened, but the entirely enjoyable and believable acting.
So do your handsome significant other a favor and let him watch his Trek with his girl - but with one huge caveat: you may actually really like this one yourself :)
