Action, Adventure, Science fiction
Director J.J. Abrams has pulled off a modern movie miracle with his reboot of the Star Trek franchise. He manages to retain the vibe of the beloved TV and film series while creating something altogether different, fresh and irresistibly entertaining. This is the best Star Trek film I’ve seen, and that includes Wrath of Khan and the humpback-whale movie. It’s that good. Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are excellent as young Kirk and Spock, who get their Starfleet abilities tested early when they face a crazed Romulan guy named Nero (Eric Bana). Leonard Nimoy has fun as the future Spock, and the film offers a lot of cool mind-benders with time travel, along with great action and special effects. The cast is solid; Karl Urban is especially good as Bones McCoy, as is Simon Pegg as Scotty. It’s a great summer blockbuster and one of the year’s best films.
