Star Trek (movie review)

Title: Star Trek (2009)

This is the newer version of Star Trek, as imagined (or re-imagined if you like) by director J. J. Abrams. As a huge LOST fan, it was hard for me to not give this movie a try.

And I am glad I did watch it. While certainly not the same style or mood as the older movies I grew up watching (I mean, how can you beat a whale in a spaceship?!), it did prove to be entertaining. Parts of the plot were entirely predictable, but not terrible enough to take you out of the story too far.

And while I did not like the whole time travel part, the interaction and introduction of the primary characters we know and love was pretty fun to watch. And as a past fan of Heroes, I kept seeing Spock and Sylar as long lost brothers or something.

In the end, the action was fun, the acting was good, and the plot was okay. I would say it is worth your money to buy it on DVD, just use a coupon to get the best deal.

I LOVED the movie, but I wish it were a different ST franchise because I loved the Kirk/Spock/Bones et al, stories just the way they were without changing history. That disappointed and annoyed me.

However--I really liked the new Kirk:

"I'll wait while you get more guys."

Jules - I did like how they spun the characters, but I never was much a fan of the original series (just too campy for me).

Mi Revista - Thanks for stopping by!
