I'm not usually very big into movie reviews because we all have our individual tastes but this past opening weekend I took in the new version of the Star Trek movie, named simply Star Trek and let me tell you the
New Trekkie Movie Is A Winner.
I am a very harsh critic on movies cause most of them are too long, have terrible plots, so so acting, start and stop, too many useless explosions, gratuitous violence, needless sexual innuendo etc. The new Star Trek had none of that with top marks in all those areas.
They take us back to the origin of James Tiberias Kirk as a baby and him growing up a daredevil and eventually going to Starfleet academy. All the characters are new ones for Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and Scotty. As well as Sulu, Chekhov and Uhura. It is a very fresh approach to anyone (like me) who has seen ALL the Star Trek movies. The special effects in space and the black holes and firey drill that drills into planets are extraordinary.
The film moves along like a wild ride for two hours and six minutes and you just leave feeling now THAT was a good movie. Very entertaining, funny, touching, and the usual conquest of good vs. evil. The original Spock Leonard Nimoy is in it too. It's opening weekend proved it to be a blockbuster.
My review: five stars out of five stars. VERY GOOD.
