Any fan of the original Star Trek movies will be happy with this prequel. They injected just the right amount of comedy and interaction between the characters of James Kirk, Spock, Bones and Scotty. I loved it and would recommend it to all.
Skipped through most of it. Too long and I actually didn't like any of the characters, unlike the original. And no, I was never a fan.
This is a great Star Trek,really good spin on a true and tried concept.
Great movie, J.J Abrams did a good job with rebooting the Star Trek series.
Loved this movie, did a good job at rebooting the startrek series. Well cast enjoyable movie.
If you are a fan of the original, do yourself a big favour and give this one a miss. Terrible storyline, terrible acting, it wasn't camp and it wasn't fun. Convinced me that the only person who should ever play Kirk is Shatner. Very disappointing. I can only imagine Gene Roddenberry turning in his grave.
awesome movie! this was my first time to watch the star trek movie and just fell in love.
Amazing movie! I really liked the original Star Trek, so I was a bit skeptical, but it was incredible nonetheless!
Good ScIfI movie. Loved it.. but as somebody who have seen a lot of StarTrek I will have to say this is a big disappointed.
Yes it has all the familiar names and shapes, colours and sounds of a startrek movie.. However certain things happen in this movie that would be just not done in real startrek world so to speak.. It would go against all the prime directives of the federation..
Yes we could be watching some sort of alter timeline or maybe it some sort o start of a new Startrek series that is going to explain it all.. or maybe not.. For now I would say great Scifi but they totally missed the spirit of Star Trek.
I would be very surprised if the late creator the tv series or the original cast from television didn't like this movie. It is a direct homage to those episodes and characters that so many have come to love and enjoy. The movie starts on a superb note and the you get taken for a ride that almost equals some of the episodes from the Star Wars saga. The special effects are first class and the enemy is no slouch to be taken lightly, it's very entertaining and has some of that classic Star Trek humour. Not to be missed!
Space, the final frontier... this is the voyage of J.J.Abrams, his on-going mission, to find new and undiscovered treckers, to give life to old fans and a slow dying franchise... and to boldly do what no other producer could do before!
Logic would dictate that you cannot hate Star Trek until you have actually seen this fantastic movie... if you dont like it stop using your phone, bluetooth headset, computer and basically all technology with a microprocesser (there might be one in your milk carton) as all the original fans of the 60's show created these things based on the ideas they got from the show. (see how william shatner changed the world - on dvd).
I have never watched any of the Star Trek series in my life but I thought I would give this movie a go and was pleasantly surprised. I quite enjoyed it, JJ Abrams achieved his goal of making it appeal to original fans and first timers.
The DVD was totally messed up! everything was in the wrong order
Enjoy it and the light humour.
Fantastic movie thoroughly enjoyed it could watch it again
A great movie , it was good having the background on Spock and Kirk.Would watch it again.
What can I say - awesome. Enough homage for the fans, and plenty of action and thrills for those new to the Star Trek universe. Great stuff. And Keith Urban rocks as Bones!
Gives some knowing winks to the fans and pays homage to the originals without imitating them, while still appropriate for this non-Trekkie whose only knowledge of the franchise comes from pop culture. Just don't think too hard about the plot (it doesn't make that much sense), and try not to cringe at Eric Bana in prosthetics attempting to look aggrieved and villainous.
If your a star trek fan you will love this movie, if your not you will be after this, I rate this highly on my list of star trek titles both for its ability to keep you in your seat as well as adding little bits and pieces to the original story that were not there before.
Great Movie one of the best of 2009
Good acting. More a tv movie than a cinema one. Not bad but I'm not star trek fan.
What an awesome way to reenergise a tired franchise. Directors watch and weep with the ease that JJ Abrams gives life to ST. Superb casting, solid storyline and amazing effects. George Lucas would be green with envy. I have never been a trekkie...until now.
Great movie, pity the disc was a bit flaky
Very good movie, great for a laugh, really great action sequences. Recommended veiwing
Beam me up and let me show you my photon torpedo, the next instalment of Star Trek is back.
Enough gaff to keep the traditionalists happy while attracting new audiences.
Great movie. A good introduction to how it all began. Some corny lines and predictable acting but overall a great movie. You won't be sorry you watched this one.
The story acceptable but moves haphazardly about a little. Sets are great and space is looking closer ad more real with each Star trek movie.
I am so seriously impressed with the whole younger crew, especially Syle...Spock. And it was nice to see Kirk finally getting the apocryphal green chick.
Great Movie, one I would recommend to anyone, even if you aren't a Star Trek Fan!
I wasn't but if they bring out more I will be watching them all.
Great action, great acting, great storyline.
Loads of action. Some really funny lines. The story was good. Really enjoyed it.
An excellent film that is to be highly commended for the tremendous performances of Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine and Ben Cross. The eleventh Star Trek takes it back to the beginning of the 2258 'five year mission' but with the twist of having an entirely non-canonical plot that refreshes a series of movies which were becoming stale. The film sees Kirk, Spock and CAPTAIN Pike battle Romulans who have travelled back through time to destroy planets of the Federation using vaunted 'Red Matter.' This film deserves a fair go, as it cannot be fairly compared to the old series. For the acting and revamping the series, I'd give it five stars.
An interesting prequel. I can see the possibility of a whole new series of Star Trek Movies.
Excellent. After seeing all other Star Trek movies, this is so good.
The ultimate Star Trek Movie. Shows the begining of the Life Long Bonds between Spock, Kirk, Bones and Mckoy. Special Effects are Brilliant. When on the platform Looking over did anybody else have the sensation or fear of Falling I sure as hell did and I have never suffered from Vertigo in my life. This movie depicts what all movies should be all about, GREAT ENTERTAINMENT.
Having been sheltered from previous Star Trek films, thought this was a nice introduction to the story. Fast paced with decent action sequences. Eric Bana does a good job in the evil role. note this is a prequel to the Star Trek series.
Really enjoyed this movie. Great for sci-fi fans but also not too sci-fi either.
Absolutely fantastic! I couldn't fault this film at all. Fast paced and brilliantly edited there is no room for breathing as the plot unfolds. It cleverly harks back to the old series while at the same time constructing a new timeline for this rebooted version. Zachary Quinto IS Spock and Chris Pine does pouty misunderstood Kirk well. A triumph!
When I started watching this, I thought there aren't many sci-fi films around these days. Maybe they are costly to make or just don't work that well. I had heard good things about Star Trek and it didn't let me down. A really enjoyable sci-fi action film. There are a few Star Trek cliches thrown in, and I found myself predicting them before they happened, but it was all in good fun. The characters are great, the action non-stop and the special effects are first class. A terrific movie.
Wonderful. I liked the old series ...the actors in this did so well at playing the old characters...the mannerisms and accents were spot on! I loved this movie.
Amazing, guaranteed to be a Srar Trek classic. Just love seeing the young James Kirk, Spock and the other crew members. Choice of young actor was supurb, fantastic scenes.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend highly to any
'Trekkie' or sci fi movie buffy.
Very pleased we had this over the Easter break as it gave us the opportunity to watch it several times.
Best Star Trek movie so far. Great acting, made the plot very believable. Great sound!!! When's the next one coming out?
Not really a star trekker , but the movie was awesome , good to find out how the characters started , great movie
Beautiful, one word.
And see you soon, when I buy 3D TV and player.
I just watch it and I will watch again and again.
I have been a Trekkie for about 35 years, and began to watch with a good deal of scepicism.
Overall I would have to say it was a good film. It is set just before Kirk gets the Enterprise, but in typical(?) Star Trek fashion it had to find a spot for Leonard Nimoy as an aged Spok alongside the young spok.
If you are a fan of Star Trek you should find this version more than acceptable. If you like science fiction you should really like it.
3 and a half stars
Excellently done. Even to the point that the children sat down and watched the whole thing without no troubles. Highly recommend this movie for the family, even if you are not a fan. Well worth the watch.
You don't need to be a previous Star Trek fan or a Sci-Fi fan to enjoy this film. It's like Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica put together to form an incredible and interesting concept of the reality of life and how space voyage is an act of peace keeping. An excellent quality film, it had a mind boggling story, the CGI effects were amazing, its an easy film to watch and just simply, a great adventure story to learn about the future and other Intelligent species.
totally wiped the trek history/timeline as we know it. top movie. i look forward to more
Top Movie, on of the best i've seen
Didnt like the TV series however, the movie is much better
Hey, I loved it. Bring on a new series with these new people, or a sequel. I'm a fan from the original screenings and I loved this just as much if not more.
Overall pretty good - they could certainly have done without some of the fairly extended 'punch up' scenes which were largely gratuitous but other than that it was a good effort.
This was excellent. The actors matched the original TV
Really enjoyed this movie, the visual was amazing and the acting as well. I am not a trekkie and I still enjoyed it. Recommend it to everyone.
A top move for all you star trek fans, dont why it so many years in between the series to make this move but it would good if they made a series of it
Love Star Trek in any form.
Great movie, loved the idea of the young trekkies I was a big fan of Star Trek from way back and it makes me want to watch the series again. I had no idea that Eric Bana was Nero what a great Aussie actor and Chris Pine - eye candy!
May end up being one of the best Sci-Fi movies of all times.
Great script, acting, special effects .... plus lots of the usual Star Trek tongue in mouth humour!
Highly recommend this movie to anyone.
This Star Trek is a prequel to the original. This video was too far removed from the original movie and series that the characters personalities did not match. The plot was a let down.
I must admit, like some others here I have never been into the show (honestly have never watched an episode) but the great thing is, you don't need to be a fan of the series to understand it as the story has basically started all over again in an alternate timeline. Everyone seemed well cast and it was really entertaining. My husband who is a big fan of the show loved it and watched it many times!
really enjoyable, and I'm not a trekkie!
What a fantastic prequel to the Star Trek series. Great fun to meet all the old characters as brand new graduates from the fleet academy. Particulary enjoyed young Chekov and Eric Bana makes a fabulous baddie. Of course the special effects were awesome.
Very good, kept us watching for the full movie, no boring bits! Especially if you like Sci_Fi
Fantastic design and effects and an excellent cast. I do worry when movies time-shift but I just went with it. I'm a great fan of the original series and I loved this.
Love Star Trek and this one is all action. Highly recommended.
Fantastic movie, very well done I would reccomend this even to people who have no interest in Star Trek before with no real requirement for knowing the history
If you do not try to connect all of the dots from history - this is very enjoyable, I watched it a couple of times in the same week I liked it so much.
Im an old Trekkie from way back and really enjoyed this movie. It was great to see Old Spock in there to throw a bit of realism into the mix. Great movie as far as Im concerned. Good starting action scenes...
I heard that this was a Star Trek movie for people who have never seen or even hate Star Trek movies and/or the serieses (is that a word?).
Lives up to that reputation because I loved this.
Enjoyed it and I am not usually into Star Trek....
A special effects extravaganza but an absolutely awful movie. Almost no character development and a sorry excuse of a script. Good if you like explosions and CGI but not so good if you like an engaging story line. If you are a fan of the original TV series I suggest that you give this one a miss.
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT.
If you're a bit of a trekkie, this is for you. If not, you'll still love it, you just won't get the 'in' jokes.
I love the idea of Uhura having a thing with Spock.
The cast has been picked really carefully as it's easy to see them as younger versions of our favourite characters.
Bring on the sequal!!!
Awesome, I could watch this over and over.
An enjoyable pop-corn film, but ultimately soulless and boneheaded. Worth watching, and fun if you like that sort of thing, but fans of Star Trek: TOS are bound to find themselves disappointed (still more fun than the movies or the other shows, though).
Enjoyable film, good effects, just found it difficult to follow the story having not been a follower of the series.
LOVED IT, WILL DONE TO GO INTO THE PAST FOR THE NEW STORIES...
I have never been a fan of the Star Trek TV series or the earlier films but I enjoyed this film. Not a complex story but enough to keep your interest. Looks good and Eric Bana makes a convincing villain. My 14 year old son also enjoyed this movie.
I'm not a Star Trek fan but I thoroughly enjoyed this film. Casting was fantastic and just enough humour balanced with visual glamour.
Star Trek movies just keep getting better and better. My guess is that even if you are not a trekkie you will still enjoy this one.
Not a star trek fan ... however enjoyed this as it explained the story from the beginning somewhat.
Never watched the show or previous movies, don't
even know what possessed me to go and see it. But
I am so happy I did. After only two viewings it
immediately jumped to one of my favourite movies of
In the US on vacation, saw the first 30min on a UNITED flight from Denver and the movie is looking great!!
Pretty fast paced from the start and great graphics.
i haven't seen the original but this looks great!!
If you are not a fan of the series or earlier movies you will definately like this one as they have re-imagined the story through alternate timelines
Great way to re-ignite an old story. Can't wait for the sequel.
Fantastic!! Didn't get into the series or movies, but am now a fan!
