Once again,JJ's reboot gives us a fresh lick of paint and a sickening newbie cast the young gen can relate to. But all it's whizz bang can't hide the paucity of the material on display here, this is old ground well travelled and the pap ending is sick inducing. No new ideas or lateral thinking here.
Still, JJ's a smart cookie who knows his audience aren't sci-fi fans. I guess I just yearn for that experince that genius Gene gave us. You know, the feeling you get when you've experinced something you hadn't experienced before. And all the CGI in the world is no compensation..
