Most reboots of favorite franchises (especially Star Trek) usually end up in disaster. So naturally I was a bit skeptic. Star Trek at least towards this new generation is somewhat of outdated, so I was not optimistic about the reboot being anything but mediocre. Well, I’m glad I’m wrong as JJ Abrams’ Star Trek is absolutely awesome!
This is not your dad Star Trek. It’s the JJ Abrams reimagining of Star Trek and although there are subtle changes that would make the hard-core purist weep, it is definitely in the same spirit and is rather impressive to watch. From beginning to end of special effects, excellent story, and great characters. This film will have you on the edge of your seat. What really makes up for this are the actors, especially Chris Pine as Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock and Karl urban as Dr. McCoy. All three are absolutely charismatic, and the chemistry between them is excellent.
