Movie Review by Martin
June 11th, 2009

Let me just say first that i am not a HUGE fan of Star trek, and have never actually watched the tv series. Although i was brought up with the 80's movies, and can remember liking most of them as a kid (There was the one where Spock dies, the one where he comes back somehow, the one with whales in it for some reason, right?) This movie however, seems to want to destroy the blurry memorys i have of these.

On first hearing Star trek was to be "re-amagined" i thought it was a terrible idea in the first place. In my opinion the series has already been around for way to long to even consider scrapping everything and starting again. I mean, hasn't there been, like, 6 different tv series and 10 movies. over 40 years of this we're now supost to just forget. The whole idea of time traveling causing this new start is a good one i supose, but its just annoying that this allows the creators to be lazy and not have any future to stick to if they had just made a prequal.

This isnt the only thing lazy about this movie. I think i might be alone in this, but i think that the casting of the old crews replacements is poor too. Its like the bosses just walked around some studio lots looking for the first people they could find for the parts. The first bloke with brown hair was instantly cast as Kirk, the first bloke with black hair is Spock, the first chinese guy they came across was instantly cast as Sulo, and dont even get me started on Simon Pegg as Scotty. Although i am a fan of his he is by far the worst thing in the movie. People in the cinema just seemed to want to laugh because they thought they had to because it was Simon Pegg, which enraged me as he didnt do or say anything remotely funny. Surely Nick Frost would of been better? The only half decent casting choise is surprizingly Karl Urban, who does a bangon impression of Deforrest Kelley as Bones.

This is obviously supost to be the beginning of a whole batch of new trek movies with alot of focus on introducing the characters. But what is the point if they are not the same characters we already know? Spock is to mean to be Spock. But Uhara seems to like it for some reason as shes all over him. Why? The makers seem to think Anton Yelchins russian accent as Checov is awsome so feature lots of him close up. speaking in a Russian accent. Again. Why?

OK so some of the action is pretty cool with all the ships blowing up at the start and everything, but we only had to watch the trailer to see that, everything else about the movie is bad, espechally all the futuristic technical talk, and describing how time traveling works. Who cares, get on with it!!!

The author of this review doesn't have authority of judgment, because he doesn't know how to write or how to spell. Imagine is not spelled 'amagine'. Supposed is not spelled 'supost'. These are shameful errors that detract completely from the presentation of the review. I can't concentrate on what the author is trying to say because he says it so poorly. The next time I want a review like this I'll send my seven-year-old to the movie and have him write a review, because it would certainly be of the same caliber as this one.

I understand English is a difficult language. But if it is your profession to review movies in writing, you'd better learn to write better than this.

Oh dear, i've offended a treckie by saying this movie sucks! I don't know why you thought i would care for your opinion on my spelling because i don't. So what if i've made a couple of spelling mistakes, treckies have their own "made up" lanuage for christ sake, and go ahead, send your 7 year old to the movies itself. That'll make you a sh*t parent, which you probably are anyway!
