Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As Fun and Watchable

May 6th, 2009 No comments

I think this is hilarious. I am want to watch it even more now. I’ve always been a Star Trek Next Generation Fan. Not much for the other series or movies. This film looks very promising though. Man, Summer 2009 has got some great films!

Star Trek brings Kirk and Spock center stage and tracks the origins of their friendship and how they became officers aboard the Enterprise. Other crew includes McCoy (Karl Urban), Uhura (Zoë Saldana), Scotty (Simon Pegg), Sulu (John Cho), and Chekov (Anton Yelchin). Their adventure goes from Earth to Vulcan. It also features Leonard Nimoy appearing in scenes with his younger self through a time travel subplot. The storytelling is newbie-friendly, but it slyly assimilates a wide range of Trek arcana, from doomed Captain Pike (Bruce Greenwood) to Sulu’s swordsmanship to classic lines like, ”I have been, and always shall be, your friend.” More ambitiously, the movie subversively plays with Trek lore — and those who know it.

The new Star Trek (Release 5/8/2009) is a reboot directed by JJ Abrams (LOST, Cloverfield, Mission Impossible 3).
