Mission: Impossible III director and Alias creator J.J. Abrams resurrects the classic science fiction franchise created by Gene Roddenberry with this feature film that embraces the rich history of the influential television and film series while also exploring some uncharted territory. Heroes star Zachary Quinto assumes the role of the Federation Starfleet lieutenant and Vulcan made famous in the original series by Leonard Nimoy (who also appears in an older incarnation of his original role), Spock, with Anton Yelchin stepping into the role of USS Enterprise navigator Pavel Chekov, Zoe Saldana assuming the role of communications officer Uhura, Simon Pegg keeping the ship in top shape as chief engineer Montgomery Scott (aka "Scotty"), and Eric Bana tormenting the benevolent space explorers as the villainous Nero. Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle co-star John Cho also boards the Enterprise as Hikaru Sulu, with Chris Pine and Karl Urban assuming the legendary roles of Captain Kirk and Leonard "Bones" McCoy, respectively.

I am a Star Trek fan since the original series with Shatner and Nimoy. I've watched most of the movies and knew this one was reprising the original roles with new young actors I was afraid they could not fill the formidible shoes of the original cast. They were very talented actors and made the roles their own. Kudo's to the new Spock. His performance stood out. All the cast was great. I liked the way it showed the early lives of the main characters till they got on the Starship Enterprise. There was also a new romance that added some spice. I recommend this to all Trekies and sc-fi fans and yes the special effects were better than expected. I hope for more sequels soon and some Tribbles!
I was lucky to win tickets to this movie through a radio station. Was I ever grateful! I would have definitely paid to see this no questions asked! I absolutely loved this movie. I even saw it at an IMAX theater, which made the experience even more amazing. I will absolutely purchase this movie and watch it a few more times!
I am a die hard Star Trek fan, and was extremely nervous the closer it came to the movie's release date. The more I heard about the film, the more I was sure that Abrams missed the mark. I enjoy Abrams' work, I just wasn't sure that an admitted Star Wars fan could understand Star Trek. I was wrong. The storyline sets the action and characters up for more freedom than I though possible, but even though a wide range of liberties is allowed by the opening plot device, Abrams, Pine, and the others manage to hit the mark with their characters. I LOVED this movie, and think that it has breathed new life into the series. Simply put - it was fantastic, and I cannot wait for another entry. A must see!
This is an exciting, visually stunning movie. It moves along at a very crisp pace, and seems shorter than its 2hr, 6 min. The plot and script are very inclusive of Trekkies and non-Trekkies alike. Hopefully, there will be at least 2 more sequels. I can't wait!
This movie was a disappointment. The reasons? Kirk as a boy made me shudder. Scotty's new "space monkey" sidekick made me wonder when the chief engineer was going to break out an organ grinder and a tin cup. Spock's "futuristic" ship made me wonder why they didn't simply put a propeller on the rear. Scotty beaming (accidentally) into a hydro-turbine makes as much sense on a starship powered by a matter-anti-matter reaction as a group of midshipmen madly pedaling stationary bicycle generators on board a modern nuclear submarine. The acting held only a few glimmers of appeal. The new "McCoy" and "Chekov" managed to prop up the film in that regard. Leonard Nimoy was a welcome addition, although he could be wheeled onto a Star Trek set and required only to wink at the camera to satisfy most fans of the original series. What is next, given this schlock approach to a once venerable Sci-fi franchise? Will the young Kirk's new five year mission be comprised of broadcasts of interplanetary cooking shows that he hosts from orbit from a professional kitchen on board the new Enterprise? (Somehow, Rodenberry knew how incompatible cooking is with good Sci-fi.) I wonder how long those who created this "Galaxy Quest with Star Trek Characters" will need to reintroduce hanging carcasses and meat cleavers. I do hope they find a better script for any future films in this series, and avoid more, ridiculous uniform changes and character additions.
I loved this movie... I have watched every Star Trek Movie that has come out and every episode of every show... ok ok im a fan... but this movie is so good its fantastic.. Its like the original series with its fast action and interpersonal drama. It changes the way things were in the original... making it a new experience. Reviving an old friend into something freash .. new.. and exiciting.
For Not_Impressed dude you need to get a grip. They remade the series for the younger generation at the same time trying to keep with the old. I am a trekkie at heart. I love the way the younger versions of the original characters stayed true to the old characters personality. Plus the update in costumes stayed very close to the original, along with the sounds of the ship, but giving it a high teck look. Over all this was one of the best movies I have ever seen in a while and stays very close and true to the original version of Star Trek. Its got action, comedy, and romance plus it has a few surprises for the original Trekkies out there.
Finally, a Star Trek film par excellent! I loved the original episode, really liked The Next Generation, but the quality somehow began dwindling after that . . . and the movies. <sigh> With the exception of The Wrath of Khan, the movies have lacked (usually a plot), until this gem. I was thrilled that the actors chosen looked and acted true to the original characters, and with the exception of that Spock/Uhura thing (What the heck was THAT?) the entire movie experience was wonderful. I also liked that they stayed true to the look of the original series. I took my daughter with me, who has never watched anything Star Trek, and she became an instant fan. They could so easily follow this movie up with another series (using the same actors, I would hope) because the history of the original series has been changed dramatically. Or another movie like this one - I'd definitely would be there! I've been to every one, but I would be excited this time. "Spock" and "McCoy" were especially great, though Uhura's character could use a little professionalism and keep her lips to herself.
I thoroughly enjoyed this altered universe into which these characters were cast. I have seen every episode of every series and all the movies and I will add this one to my collection. These actors do an excellent job of recreating the original charzcters while giving a bit of themselves. The special effects are tremendous. As long as you realize this is not Mom's Star Trek - I think you will do fine.
I am in no way shape or form a Trekkie. In fact, I must admit that I shy away from most science fiction movies. I was expecting to be bored while I watched this movie with a friend. However, I found this movie enjoyable. I was pleasantly surprised by the movie. It was entertaining; there were hardly any obligatory sex scenes or cussing. The special effects were believable and the storyline was surprisingly humorous. There are a lot of one liners. The blooper reel was pretty great also.
Though having been a sci-fi fan my entire life, I had never really had much interest in Star Trek until I saw this movie. This movie is phenomenal! It really plays off of actual scientific theories and human psychology, not to mention the incredibly gifted cast and unique plot. Star Trek will have you on the edge of your seat from the beginning and leave you wanting more at the end!
The movie has countless plot holes and flaws. It makes zero sense and deliberately dumps/rejects everything that Star Trek has been. The cast is trying to imitate the characters from the original series, and failing completely. Often they come across as knock offs, or as insults to original characters. Kirk is a an over grown child. Spock is EMOTIONAL. Bones is almost unwilling to be in Star Fleet. Uhura is Spock's girlfriend. Scotty was outclassed in engineering by Old Spock. Usually I hate agreeing with the Bad Guys, but this is an exception. To quote Nero " James T Kirk was considered to be a Great Man, but that was another life." The only reason this crew survived the movie is because Old Spock saved them.
A STAR TREK film that started out with some promise but in the end let me down. Parts of it built up to something interesting yet at a certain moment the film just did what it thought was a clever reverse of THE WRATH OF KHAN. After that the film just lost me in it's of I am so clever moments. I hope the next film somehow forgets this one and becomes a great TREK film.
Pretty good with a good cast and effects.
one seriously amazing movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
