JJ Abrams does a great job in ressurecting Start Trek. An 'enterprise' which didnt seem like it had any future in cinema. The revisionist version is derived from what must've been a fabulous screenplay. Action, Adventure, Discovery, Comedy, Romance-Love, Redemption and Sacrifice all put together is a fun roller coaster ride of a film. Not to mention great TIME WARPS, BLACK HOLE THEORIES AND DESOLATE PLANETS!
The CGI is great, but JJ keeps in mind the original costumes and the main control room in this version. Not to mention the Start Ship Enterprise. Whats missing though is the original score of Star Trek, I missed it. They must have done a newer version of it, however I didnt seem to get it. Was entirely missing.
The story revolves around a younger Mr.Spock and the rebellious new recruit James Kirk, before they got to be great friends. With Mr.Spock being the reason for everything thats happening in the movie. Mr.Spocks ability to shock people by pressing down on their neck (most of us would remember doing this in school to each other) and The Enterprises ability of beaming people from one place to another always in the nick of time is great fun to watch.
I missed watching this on IMAX, it would have been great. But for people who might have been wary of catching Star Trek, I highly recommend that you do. Its a superb watch. The best CGI films are ones that have a STORY which is CUTTING EDGE and a thrill RIDE. That Star Trek, surely is...
JJ Abrams is a real whiz kid.
