In order to appreciate this film, one must be familiar with the original series as well as the film series. To talk about the plot is pointless, other than to say Khan is back. Benedict Cumberbatch is a rather boring Khan who lacks the exotic look and class of Ricardo Montalban. Fortunately the cast of regulars can carry the film.

The film also introduces Carol Marcus (Alice Eve). In the original film version Carol Marcus was an early conquest of Kirk (Chris Pine). She would have his child, a son who was ultimately killed by Klingons. If you have never seen the Khan film, then this film will be meaningless and the genius and enjoyment hindered.

Another aspect of the early series is that it was reflective of the era with Klingons representing Russia and Romulans being China. That symbolism is meaningless today, so our writers cleverly use the aspect of terrorism as a way to maintain the original flavor of the series. Likewise the character of James Kirk, who did things on hunches and "out of the box" is maintained in this film, perhaps the only real reason we tolerated Shatner in that role in the first place.

Dialogue is recycled. Zachary Quinto captures Spock. The role of Uhura has been expanded and Zoe Saldana kicks a lot of women to the curb. Bones (Karl Urban) still throws out the metaphors. Simon Pegg still needs to work on Scotty. John Cho is working hard to fill the big shoes of Sulu, whose stardom has multiplied as an Amazon reviewer. There is mention of Nurse Christine Chapel from the original TV and film series which didn't fit into the plot, perhaps a clue to the next script, or maybe I missed something. Perhaps some nice Trekkie could toss me a bone on this one in the comments section and I can edit this review.

I really wanted to like this film, but by the end I was left disappointed. Lots of action, but not a lot else. Poor Benedict Cumberbatch's acting talents were never given any chance to shine. His character had little to do except fire weapons and hit people. But, I could say that about nearly all the actors. There's pretty much no plot or depth. We just go from action scene to action scene, then the credits role. At the end I was left thinking, 'Is that it?'. And yes, it was. The relationship that's supposed to be going on between Spock and Uhura still seems unlikely, and what we got here was the two of them having an ongoing falling out between the action scenes. A falling out that seemed to rise up again at the most inappropriate of moments. And, why did we have to see the female weapons expert posing in her bra and knickers? That was just unnecessary. So, the two stars are for the special effects team, but everything else needed for a good story was missing. No criticism of the actors, they just weren't given much to do.

This is all a bad joke. But then there more if you want the special case like a metal one or one that comes with a ship then you can only get that from Play.com and even at 50 it still dosent come with the special features. So annoying as a fan.

Being a fan of the original series, it took me a little time to get used to Chris Pine as Kurk, but I must admit, the cast is just perfect. Great action, beautifully directed, completely true to the spirit of the original. Zachary Quinto makes a really good Spock.Thumbs up to JJ Abrams, for taking on such a classic (at the risk of disappointing) and making it work so well. Absolutely loved it!

Just to be clear from the start; I love this film. I've been a fan of Star Trek since the original series came to the UK in the late sixties and greatly enjoyed the recent JJ Abrams reboot and this its sequel. I was very much looking forward to the Blu-ray release as I assumed that it would be similar in format to the previous film.
What a disappointment! The actual film looks great and I enjoyed it in 2D at home much more than the eye straining 3D version I saw at the cinema. However, there is a distinct lack of special features, just a handful of behind the scenes shorts -no trailers, no deleted scenes, and, worst of all, no commentary. As for the Digital Copy, what you actually get is a code for a download from Itunes. This does give you access to the excellent commentary, but you can only watch it on your computer etc. and not on your tv. This should have been on the blu-ray disc.
So only 3 stars for this release, even though I would give the film itself 5 stars! Once again, we miss out on the best features on a UK release.
