Star Trek

The new Star Trek lives up to the hype. It is awesome.

I’ve been a fan of every iteration of the franchise, and this is a great reboot. They cleverly use some familiar Trek time-travel tricks to give themselves license to fiddle with the formula.

It’s a better movie than most of the other big-screen efforts. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Zoe Saldana all do excellent jobs as Kirk, Spock, and Uhura. Especially Pine as the super-cocky Kirk. There were a few weak characterisations, but they’re excusable.

Big, big action. Phasers! Explosions! High speed everything!

Great fun.
