Summary: a super prequel. I wasn't sure about seeing this but was thoroughly absorbed by it in the first few scenes. Uncanny likeness of the characters (in terms of appearance and mannerisms) to the original cast (how do they do that?) and the plot and effects are so good.
Summary: Chris Pine fan so saw this on the big screen. Works well on the small screen. Mostly a good story, even if you're not up to speed with Star Trek. Strange connections to past films which didn't really work with the actors that shared the role. Lots of action as is the modern way with blurry effects and lots of loud noises.
Excerpt: This is the second movie with the "new crew" which plays in a kind of a alternate timeline. Not many Trekkies likes what J.J. Abrahms did with this Star Trek Franchise. My opinion: its not bad... but it was entertaining enough to keep my interest. I was skeptic with the "new" Scotty played by Simon Pegg. He's doing his job so far good. I don't care about the IMAX scenes which are not in 1.78:1 because I don't have IMAX at home - so 2,35:1 on BD is perfect.
Summary: Well, have to say, 'not too bad', actually. I am in no way a 'Trekkie', or similar, (What's the word for 'geeky', in Romanian, or whatever it is those two-fingered, pointy-eared creatures speak?) To be frank, only got it because it was a 3D title and wanted to try out the glasses. Benedict Cumberlandsaussagepatch was okay, with his Sherlock coat, which I swear I saw him wearing in 'To the ends of the Earth', way back when.
Excerpt: So what we have here is the alternate timeline meeting of Kirk & his crew with that 20th Century "superman" Khan! Elements of the original series episode "Space Seed" & Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan were integrated into the script by the writers to churn out this sequel! The movie is a pleasant time passer, the usual, great one liners, comedy, action, thrills etc. & an over- abundance of those blasted "lens flares" that you-know-who loves to use!
Excerpt: The 2009 Star Trek was an outstanding movie with a fresh story, lively acting, tons of action and plenty of humor. It set the bar extremely high for any following. Perhaps that is why I can't help be a little disappointed with Act 2 of the revived franchise. Yes, it's a very good movie.
Excerpt: It starts with Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) saving a planet. In London, there was a bomb that killed a number of people so a manhunt ensues for John Harrison/Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch). The ability to create tension, comic relief, fantastic plot, screenplay skillful camera direction and visual effects were the picture's highlights. Some insightful lines: “You think you can't make a mistake!
