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

Format: DVD
When JJ Abrams, the man behind eerie plane crash TV hit 'Lost', announced that he intended to make the next installment in the somewhat creaky Star Trek franchise, the reaction from fans of the series was mixed. What Abram's did though was revive a movie behemoth that seemed to have been left in the past, after the original cast either passed-on, retired, or in William Shatner's case re-invented themselves as post-ironic legends. The result of Abrams' labours is a spectacular, and surprisingly faithful Star Trek film, that acknowledges the show's past without slavishly adhering to continuity. To be honest, I anticipated fewer nods to the past, but this is obviously an official part of the franchise, that pulls off the trick of providing openings for further Star Trek movies whilst remaining a decent stand-alone Sci-fi actioner in its own right. With some surprising casting choices (Simon Pegg as Scotty!), current acting talent (Zachary Quinto was surely born to play Spock), and heart-warming cameos (?), the movie is hardly ground-breaking, but is ultimately satisfying, and proves that Trekkies everywhere can be reassured that their show will continue to boldly go, for many years to come.

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.

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!

Paramount and producer/director JJ Abrams took the bold step of taking "Star Trek" back to square one with this terrific, spirited re-boot of the classic tv series from the 60s.
The fabled "five year mission" of the Starship USS Enterprise under Captain James Kirk lies in the future when we pick up the story. Captain Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood) commands the Enterprise when Romulan renegade Nero (a splendidly hard nosed Eric Bana) arrives from the future via a black hole, hell bent on wrecking havoc against the Federation which he misguidedly blames for the destruction of his home world. Pike must lead his new crew, with young officers Kirk, Spock, Uhura, McCoy, Scotty and co, into a desperate fight for survival; so it's a whole new cast, but the same old thrills and spills!
I must admit to having my doubts to begin with. For this to work, the studio had to get things spot on in terms of "re-casting" the iconic Shatner, Nimoy, Kelley and the rest with new faces to take their place, but thankfully they got things pretty much spot on. Chris Pine swanks about in the manner born as a headstrong young Kirk, Karl Urban and Simon Pegg are great as a comedy double act McCoy and Scotty, and the outstanding Zachary Quinto as Spock looks as though he's undergone a mild meld with Leonard Nimoy.
To add to this, we've got a great script which packs in a ton of action and a load of humour, and first rate special effects, all handled with terrific panache and due reverence for the original series by director Abrams. This might not be cutting edge sci fi, but by gum, if you want entertainment for your cash, "Star Trek" delivers in spades. Get out the beer and crisps, settle back, and let the crew of the Starship Enterprise take you where no one has gone before, again.
