Review : The New ‘Star Trek’ Movie Packed Some Heat
I was never really a fan of the old “Star Trek” movies,and tv shows. I always thought it was kind of dull and boring,but man this new remake erased all of that. It really came with some heat and incredible action.
In the plot, it traced back to when George Kirk (Chris Hemsworth), the father of the Future Captain James T. Kirk would save 800 or so people from an enemy attack when he became captain of the Starship Enterprise for about 13 seconds before meeting his demise. Then it skips ahead to a rebellious,young James Kirk doing things like driving a car off a cliff,getting into a fight in a bar,and just being a smart alecky menace. He eventually takes up the challenge of Captain Christopher Pike to join the starship academy where he has his first run in with Spock when he cheats on Spock’s captain simulator test.
The two would battle back in forth while on a routine Starship Enterprise mission turned dangerous when they are attacked by a spaceship from the future who’s goal is to turn the Earth into a black hole. Kirk and Spock are eventually brought together by a common future ally who helps Kirk fulfill his destiny of becoming the captain,building an important friendship with Spock,and saving the planet.
I thought the storyline an build up was awesome. There was never a boring moment. The on air chemistry between Chris Pine (James Kirk) and Zachary Quinto (Spock) was priceless. I enjoyed every minute of those two bickering back and forth. The action scenes,and dialogue were top notch. This isn’t your grand daddy’s “Star Trek”. This movie was heavily up to date,and it rocked ! If you haven’t seen this movie yet, go see it and you’ll understand why it made over $76 million in it’s opening weekend.
