Certificate: 12A

Genre:

The greatest adventure of all time begins with "Star Trek," the incredible story of a young crew's maiden voyage onboard the most advanced starship ever created: the U.S.S. Enterprise. On a journey filled with action, comedy and cosmic peril, the new recruits must find a way to stop an evil being whose mission of vengeance threatens all of mankind. The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James T. Kirk, is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock, was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely but powerful partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before!

    Abrams does a great revamp of the Star Trek franchise & not geared towards trekkies either, a great start to the summer blockbuster season,plenty of action and a few laughs.i'd say this will even turn a few people into star trek fans well worth a trip to the movies.

    Witty, stylish, sometimes epic but regularly spectacular and always magnificent! Star Trek caters for trek fans and non trek fans alike, so you don't need to worry about whether your friend/date/partner/mum will get it. The story is well crafted and fashioned from the old staples of any good trek story - time travel and parallel dimensions. That's really all there is too it. The pace is almost perfect, the characters are introduced gradually and the whole experience is handled masterfully. Even the little things are handled well, with death in the silence of space in the middle of a battle being somewhat jarring. The characters are casted brilliantly. From kirks' brashful confidence to bones' waxing lyrical, I'm sure young and old alike will have a favourite. If I had to say something bad about the movie, I didn't like the fight scene on the drill. It was fairly signposted and felt too choreographed. Sulu typified this and it could be seen coming a mile away. All I can say is that I really really REALLY want to see this again! Its been a while since we've had a film the merits of which could be debated in the pub long into the pints. Also, +1 star for the use of the beastie boys' sabotage.

    Went to cineworld for the 17.20 show. I was up in the top cinema and by the time the credits had rolled, I had gotten down to the bottom, I knew there was only one thing left to do... Go see the 19.10 show. So I did. I don't regret it & I will probably go again this week. Never once did I feel like anyone was doing an impression of their former selves, yet everyone of them embodied the character. loved it.

    its good. there is about 5 minutes at the start that remind me more of star wars. The film was funny in parts and better than i thought it would be and some non-trekkies would like it too
