Product Description

A prequel focusing on a young James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, chronicling their first meeting at Starfleet Academy and their first spac e mission.

From Amazon.co.uk

J.J. Abrams' 2009 feature film was billed as "not your father's Star Trek," but your father will probably love it anyway. And what's not to love? It has enough action, emotional impact, humor, and sheer fun for any moviegoer, and Trekkers will enjoy plenty of insider references and a cast that seems ideally suited to portray the characters we know they'll become later. Both a prequel and a reboot, Star Trek introduces us to James T. Kirk (Chris Pine of The Princess Diaries 2), a sharp but aimless young man who's prodded by a Starfleet captain, Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood), to enlist and make a difference. At the Academy, Kirk runs afoul of a Vulcan commander named Spock (Zachary Quinto of Heroes), but their conflict has to take a back seat when Starfleet, including its new ship, the Enterprise, has to answer an emergency call from Vulcan. What follows is a stirring tale of genocide and revenge launched by a Romulan (Eric Bana) with a particular interest in Spock, and we get to see the familiar crew come together, including McCoy (Karl Urban), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Sulu (John Cho), Chekhov (Anton Yelchin), and Scottie (Simon Pegg).
The action and visuals make for a spectacular big-screen movie, though the plot by Abrams and his writers, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (who worked together on Transformers and with Abrams on Alias and Mission Impossible III), and his producers (fellow Losties Damon Lindeloff and Bryan Burk) can be a bit of a mind-bender (no surprise there for Lost fans). Hardcore fans with a bone to pick may find faults, but resistance is futile when you can watch Kirk take on the Kobayashi Maru scenario or hear McCoy bark, "Damnit, man, I'm a doctor, not a physicist!" An appearance by Leonard Nimoy and hearing the late Majel Barrett Roddenberry as the voice of the computer simply sweeten the pot. Now comes the hard part: waiting for some sequels to this terrific prequel. --David Horiuchi --This text refers to the DVD edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'A GREAT BEGINNING TO THE ICONIC SERIES' 18 July 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Many of us would have wondered wether this 'prequel' would be true to the now legendary 'Star-Trek' format, we truly needn't have worried, the film is sypathetic in respect of the crew casting, and also holds true the spirit of the memories we have regarding the style of the story-line.
The film had a 'WOW' factor as the 'c.g.i' amazed throughout the film, the action 'awsome' ...in fact the movie wizzed through at 'warp' speed.
The story tells of how the 'Enterpise' crew come together along with their first adventure in space coming up against the evil 'Romulan' 'Nero' ( Eric Bana ) who is out to destroy planet earth.
'Chris Pne' ( James T kirk ) and 'Zachary Quinto' ( Spock ) grow into their role's as the film progresses.
Also wasn't it great touch to see 'Leonard Nimoy' intergrated into the film as 'Spock' ( of course )
This is a really good 'Star-Trek' offering and should not be missed, of course Star-Trek X11 has been released since,
looking forward to the next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Trek XI 14 Oct 2009
Format:DVD
THIS YEAR'S IRON MAN
I guess there are different sorts of die hard fans. I'm of the type who has lapped up everything Star Trek for 40 years. The orginal series was great and so were most of the even numbered movies. TNG was a great ride but with each successive series thereafter, the ideas got less an less original - not that the shows weren't created by hugely talented people but how could they stay hot after hundreds of episodes? By the time we limped to Enterprise, the franchise needed a shot in the arm if it was going to survive. I was hugely sceptical about Abrams' version - Simon Pegg as Scotty, come on! I mean we love him but that definately felt like credibility was being stretched.

What a true delight it was then to see a true pumped up, rock 'n' roll version of Star Trek! Abrams and his gang did a clever thing, they created their very own Star Trek leaving the original series and everything we know fully intact sat happily in its own time line. Don't misunderstand though, this is the very same Kirk, Spock, McCoy and co. we all know and love, just sent down a slightly different path. So we can take a few liberties, mix things up a bit and generally have a ton of fun.

The story does what it needs to, the casting is great (especially Spock and McCoy), the effects are fantastic and Abrams manages to do character moments on the move so there's hardly time to take a breath - oh and Simon Pegg is great as Scotty!

Overall I got a real sense of joi de vivre, hence it being this year's Iron Man something that's been missing from Trek for a long time.

Maybe the best thing is, die hards and newbies alike will all find something to like.

Buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars New Frontiers 21 Sep 2010
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
2009's reboot of Star Trek is certainly an enjoyable improvement over the ailing Next Generation series of movies, but despite all the love and US box-office success (the film wasn't nearly so popular with ticket-buyers in the rest of the world), it still doesn't make the leap to being a great film. The opening with the birth of Kirk and the death of his father during a battle packs a surprising emotional punch and the film consistently does an interesting job of showing how the characters we know and love evolved - a cocky young Jim Kirk learning to brush that chip off his shoulder and earn responsibility, Spock still struggling with his half-human impulses - but there are things that don't work that well playing against the film. J.J. Abrams tendency to put lens flares in every other shot becomes increasingly distracting and, if anything, the refit of the Enterprise is much worse than in the 1979 film, making it look distractingly like a wildly overlit nightclub or computer salesroom. It's also a shame that for someone so cavalier about using other composer's music, Michael Giacchino's score eschews Jerry Goldsmith's iconic movie theme in favor of a combination of Tan Dun oriental scoring for the Vulcans and a Danny Elfman Batman-lite theme for the Enterprise itself. Even his version of Alexander Courage's original TV theme in the end credits is typically a rather hollow reorchestration.

The plot is another time travel/revenge story that ingeniously allows the filmmakers to create an alternate timeline for future entries with a well-motivated but otherwise rather underdeveloped villain in Eric Bana.

3.0 out of 5 stars Get rid of that ******* lens flare! 18 Mar 2010
Format:Blu-ray
My wife bought this on Blu-ray a few weeks ago and I've now watched it three times, so felt it was ripe for a review.
As far as the film itself is concerned I really quite enjoyed it. I felt that the prequel idea was one that worked pretty well and it was interesting to see how the characters might have been in their formative Starfleet years. On the whole I think the film brought this off quite well, and some of the actors chosen to play the characters, most notably Zachary Quinto as Spock, really do look like they would have done many years before.
The story was for the most part convincing, although for me any tales involving time travel tend to get a bit confusing and require a large suspension of disbelief, hence the three viewings required to get my head around the machinations of the plot.
The most frustrating and annoying thing about the film for me, however, were the constant streaks and flashes of coloured light across the screen. At first I thought it might be a problem with the disc or even my Blu-ray player. Even though it's still new I updated the firmware on my player thinking that might solve the problem - it didn't. I checked loads of other Amazon reviews to see if anyone else suffered this problem - evidently not. My wife told me that a few of her friends on a Doctor Who forum had complained about this too but had not suggested an answer or solution.
Eventually I discovered what the problem was with a few well chosen Google searches - and there is no solution! These streaks and flashes of coloured light are apparently a phenomenon known as lens flare and, by all accounts, are put there deliberately by the film maker using a Knoll Lens Flare filter. Some people actually appear to think that this lens flare enhances the film.
