Brutally bad.

No lie, this was one of the worst movies I've seen in awhile.

Thin, dull plot that's already a rehash from a prior film. Paper thin characters. Zero intellectual or emotional depth. There was nothing challenging about this story, nothing thought provoking or even intriguing. Basically, bad guy wants to blow some *beep* up and after a bunch of explosions and hand-to-hand fights and crappy one liners, he's stopped by our heroes. The end. This kind of formula occasionally produces an awesome movie or two, but those movies are usually fresh and intelligently made in some way that makes them stand out.

This movie was not intelligently made, not at all.

Seriously, the writing here seemed like a seventh-grader's rendition of how adults are supposed to act: the Uhura / Spock 'fight' was like a scene you'd overhear in a middle school hallway or something. It was laughable. The few moments that should have been stirring sucked because they were just straight rips from Wrath of Khan.

On screen, it seemed like explosions, gunfire, and lens flare dominated probably 80% of the shots, and the effects looked like something from a B-grade Xbox game. There was so much CG "action" that it all ended up being pretty boring. I never felt any sense of danger. Worst of all was that constantly swelling score with the same series of notes over and over and over again. You know what I'm talking about. I mean, damn, it was cool the first couple of times, but when the 18th minor protagonist triumph was accompanied by this same bombastic progression, I was curled up in a fetal position. Please, just make it stop.

Beyond all of these issues, Star Trek was never supposed to be about endless violence and effects and one liners. It seems like Abrams has turned the series into a moderately more upscale version of Transformers, and it's too bad. There was so much more that could have been done.

So yeah, this movie sucked. A lot. I can't believe the rating it has on here. I'm starting to wonder if most of the voters work for the studios or if they've received lobotomies or something...

Bad Actors, Bad Script, Bad Taste

First of all, it does not follow any of the real Star Trek principles. The ship does not look at all like a starfleet ship. The crew does not talk at all like a starfleet crew. Starfleet represented higher ideals and a formal way of managing a ship. The dialogues are so informal, thoughtless and none can believe that real starfleet officers would talk in such a manner. The first impression of Captain Kirk is that of a fearful, uneducated cadet. Leaders are born, not made and this Kirk does not sound like a leader. I am not sure what is worse, the script or the actors or both. The settings look highly technological, which is completely contrary to the fact that the setting of the original Star Trek was not so technologically advanced. They failed to create a believable timeline. Nothing inside the starship, reminds one of a starfleet starship. This vast inconsistency in style is not believable. The story itself has nothing unique, nothing intelligent, it is like a badly written episode of a 7 season series, but without any real plot. It's all action. Nothing on morality, nothing on exploration, it is just a continuous conflict and an attempt to escape unfortunate circumstances. Not even any brilliant strategical or tactical scenes. The worst thing about it, is how they tried to recreate the scene where Spock died in "The Wrath of Khan" with Kirk in his place. It was obvious that that scene was placed there as an attempt to somehow connect the old with the new Star Trek, totally failing as it came across tasteless, and without any sort of justification from the actual plot. They changed everything, only kept the name and some childish references to the older Star Trek. Disappointing.

Mixed Bag

Listen, this movie is a mixed bag just like most films these days that are either sequels, imaginations or in this case, both.

It's not that this movie is bad per say, it's just that it's not new. If you are new to Trek, you will enjoy this. If you're a fanboy, listen to Shatner's advice and "get a life". If you're somewhere in the middle like me, grew-up with it, watched it all, enjoyed it; you may or may not like this movie.

I found it entertaining and the talent was not too bad. Some of the ideas were OK, but again nothing fresh.

At the end of the day it's a solid 6.5 because of it's lack of vision and depth. If you want to understand why this movie is the way it is, go watch Wrath of Khan, arguably the best Trek movie and one of the best pieces of science fiction ever put together.
