Editor's NoteThose prepared to hate the reboot of STAR TREK--whether they?re diehard fans or those in the anti-sci-fi camp--may be convinced to lower their shields after seeing this fun, action-filled film. Best known for creating mythology-driven series like LOST, J.J. Abrams has imbued his version with the elements that have made his shows such mind-bending entertainment while still keeping the soul of the saga intact. STAR TREK begins with an attack by an impossibly advanced Romulan ship captained by the tattooed, snarling Nero (Eric Bana). Among the survivors is the infant version of James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), who grows up to wreak havoc on the Iowa countryside. When Captain Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood) meets an adult Kirk, he encourages him to join Starfleet, giving him the opportunity to meet Spock (Zachary Quinto), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), and the rest of the characters audiences have loved for decades. Abrams has assembled a fine cast who seem to be aware of their predecessors but never resort to impressions. Both Quinto and Pine do a fine job with their portrayals of Kirk and Spock, and Karl Urban couldn?t be better as Leonard McCoy. The supporting players--Simon Pegg (Scotty), John Cho (Sulu), and Anton Yelchin (Chekov)--all capture the essence of what drove their characters, though their screen time is limited. STAR TREK manages the nearly impossible: it pleases hardcore fans with plenty of in-jokes and references (and an appearance by the original Spock, Leonard Nimoy), but it doesn?t alienate newcomers with tons of technobabble. The action and effects rank with any other top-tier summer blockbuster, but there?s plenty of humor to balance the excitement. For anyone who (wrongly) felt he had to hide his trekker tendencies, this undeniably cool version of STAR TREK offers a chance to wear the "geek" label with pride.

Customer Reviews of Star Trek 11 (Blu Ray)
This Star Trek movie tells how the crew got its start and gives us a glimpse of the characters we have come to love as they were getting their starts in Star Fleet. It does a very nice job of tying things together and setting the stage for some possible new movies that would tell about earlier adventures of the original cast of characters. The movie brings in one of the original characters, Spock, where the young version and the old version meet. The casting was very successful in capturing some of the mannerisms of the original cast; I was particularly impressed with Karl Urban's portrayal of Bones, he did an outstanding job of capturing the accent and mannerisms used by DeForest Kelley in the original series. An effort is made to explore the personal strengths and weaknesses of the characters that help the viewer, who is familiar with the series, to see how they came to be and accomplish what the later stories reveal.the Blu-ray version offers the good video and audio that one expects from the medium and the story is filled with fast paced action that holds one's attention. The financial success of this movie seems to guarantee sequels starting in 2012 according to reports I've read; this seems to bode well for all Star Trek fans!
Hey! It's Star Trek!8/7/2013
In the old tradition of great Roddenberry flix, this movie comes near the top of the list. If you are a genuine Ster Trek fan, the storyline and action will not dissapoint. It gives the right mixture of hard science fiction, great action and Trekky humor. The new actors appear to walk in the footsteps of the old while leaving their own personal imprints on the tradition.
The Star Trek franchise took a big hit when Enterprise (the lackluster TV series) was cancelled. Fortunately, the executives at Paramount hired JJ Abrams to save the day! This movie is a very fresh and clever approach to updating Star Trek. Jim Kirk in his academy days is definately worth seeing.
