looks pretty violent huh?
it won't really be Star Trek...
are they re-casting the characters?
if not course it's star strek
it'll have none of the spirit of the original serie !
little bit shit...and not a patch on NG
You might not like the original Star Trek much but turning it to something supposedly more "modern" ( meaning lots of fights + explosions ) is not making a Star Trek movie. Just using known characters and name to make some money...
and it might be good.
how about ACTUALLY giving it a chance?
It just won't be Star Trek.
Just something new with character names I already know.
And most of the people I know that have seen it ( it's out till 3 days here ) have found it quite bad...
James Bonds. Just action movies.
I was thinking the onion thing was dead on actually. It looks pretty cool but its not the same world, that said, it would be kind of weird to try and make it like that.
star trek wasn't all flash and bangs and fast paced wildness
This doesn't reflect anyway on the film though, from what I did see it was pretty epic and quite funny in places.
the plot lacks a little in terms of making sense.
It's a good time in the cinema and on par with something like Iron Man.
It's good but not brilliant. The interaction and relationships between all the main characters was good and the characterisation of Kirk and Spock worked really well (I've not seen much Star Trek so have no idea how it is in terms of the original series) but it was let down by the overall plot - the bad guy was a bit too cardboard cut-out and there was never really any sense of threat.
Still enjoyable enough - probably a 7/10.
