Director J.J. Abrams (Alias) re-teams with his MI: III screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to bring a new vision of the greatest space adventure of all time. Featuring a young, new crew venturing boldly where no man has gone before, Star Trek depicts Romulan time traveller Nero's bloody quest for revenge against Spock and the Federation.

Play.com Review

When Paramount announced that J.J. Abrams and Transformers Revenge Of The Fallen writers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman would tackle Star Trek, few fans doubted that the creator of Lost would deliver, but even the most optimistic fan could be forgiven for not expecting it to be this good! We'll get straight to the point: this is the best Enterprise adventure since Wrath Of Khan - and plenty would argue that it's even better. So, what's so good about the latest adventure? Let us boldly tell you...

Influenced by Spock's appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generations: Season 5's "Unification" and Star Trek: The Original Series: Season 1's "Balance Of Terror", where Kirk becomes the first human to encounter a Romulan, Abrams' movie is deeply rooted in the lore of the series, but some bold decisions reinvigorate the franchise. A sort of re-boot, re-imagining and prequel all in one, this origins story toys with the space-time continuum, effectively creating a parallel universe in which the characters can exist as new versions of their former incarnations, freeing the story from the constraints of past movies and TV shows.

Depicting the characters in their formative years, the cast of relative newcomers are a resounding success. Playing Kirk like a cross between William Shatner's original, Tom Cruise's Maverick and Harrison Ford's Han Solo, Chris Pine (Smokin' Aces) is charming and hilarious, but he's always building to become the iconic hero. Heroes star Zachary Quinto successfully channels Leonard Nimoy (who also appears) as Spock, exploring the character's dual heritage. Meanwhile, Zoe Saldana captures the strength and sexuality of Nichelle Nichols' original Uhura, easily capable of holding her own against the egos onboard the Enterprise. Her romantic leanings might surprise a few old Trek fans, too. Elsewhere Karl Urban brilliantly plays "Bones", Simon Pegg amuses as Scottie, Anton Yelchin (Terminator Salvation) adds humour as Chekov, John Cho appears as Sulu; and that's not forgetting Eric Bana (Black Hawk Down) as Romulan baddie Nero.

The actors are fantastic, but it's Abrams' handling of the spectacle that made this movie the highest grossing Star Trek. Never before have we seen such intense action and such gripping set pieces; the opening is one of the most immediate, impacting scenes in a blockbuster for many years. Overall, fans will love the references and creative decisions, whilst newcomers will enjoy the intense, action-packed spectacle and accessibility of a world that might have previously seemed inaccessible, such is the depth and scale of the Star Trek legacy. Did we mention two sequels are on the way? Wish we could warp speed!

To be honest I was never a fan of Star Trek, I could take or leave the series, spin-off's and previouse movies, but that was then and this is now!
This Star Trek is just amazing, the scale of the movie is epic, as it charts the early years of Kirk ( an excellent Chris Pine ) Spock (superb performance by Zachary Quinto ) and the rest of the crew of the Star Ship Enterprise! The mostly unknown cast slip perfectly into the roles that have been a part of pop culture for over 40 years. The pace of the film is un-flaggin with some of the best action sequences in years, the best being the breath taking sky diving sequence. The plot is a great time hopping revenge filled affair, and the always excellent Eric Banner is a brilliant bad guy as Nero.
The effects are just fantastic with one eye scorching space battle after another. The music score is also top class, with a grand horn intro sequence.This all leads to the most enjoyable, well directed Blockbuster of the year, that managers to over shadow Wolverine, Terminator Salvation and Transformer's 2 for sheer brilliance. This is not only the best Star Trek movie to date, it's the best Sci-Fi adventure since the original Star Wars Trilogy.
An instant classic!

 A Fantastic Re-boot to a stale franchise

Firstly, let me explain the presence of the word 'stale,' in my review title. I am NOT a Star Trek fan. I do not like the 10 movies that came before this one. I have only ever watched The Next Generation with a vaguely passing interest. I am aware of all the 'Trek Cliches,' (More on which later.) but honestly - like at least one other reviewer - I prefer Star Wars.

My girlfriend convinced me to go see this at the cinema and I was VERY glad I did. Characters I considered old and worn gained new depth and personality. It was great to see where the brash, cocky side of a very young Kirk originated and even better to see it knock heads with a young Spock, rather than have the two of them just hit it off from the start. Casting is absolutely first rate, every actor bringing something new to their respective characters (With the obvious exception of Leonard Nimoy, who play it EXACTLY as you both expect - and he needed to.).

The direction and cinematography was first class, just like the effects. The effects were possibly this films crowning achievement, mainly because in my opinion, the effects were probably one of the bigger jokes of the previous series and films.

And so to the previously mentioned 'Trek Cliches.' While I have stated I am not a fan, I do know enough about Star Trek within popular culture to know that if these were not convincingly present, then it would have had most Trekkies baying for JJ Abrams blood. But no, they are there, and made all the more humerousand occasionally subtle in the way they are delivered (I won't mention them specifically as I am not one for spoilers.). Even my girlfriend, who is neither a huge fan of Sci-Fi or someone who knows anything at all about Star Trek was tickled by them and came out of the cinema thoroughly entertained.

All in all, Abrams now has the whole Star Trek Universe open to him, thanks to a very clever storyline, and it feels like a very good place for him to be. I will certainly be rushing to see any future Star Trek films from this team

The Best way to describe Star Trek XI is to say that this is a Movie of the Movies.
Though the original films were decent Trek movies of there respected TV shows, the original movies had run out of steam and a new family was needed. And J.J. Abrams has done a sterling job of giving the ailing trek franchise a good kick start. This new trek is a welcome change as I feel it captures the classic treks humour action and charm as well as being able to tie it onto the next generation universe with the inclusion of Spock. Sure there may be a few plot holes but as with anything to do with trek once the time line has been changed anything can happen, like Chekov being the same age as the rest of the crew. I don't see that as a problem as once the Kelvin had been destroyed the original trek universe changed and that meant that Chekov may have been born at an earlier date.
Trek XI is a good fun glossy movie and Abrams took a big Risk in changing what trek fans considered unchangeable. The only problem I had with the film was that the engine room of the enterprise looked like a brewery.
