Schmear long and prosper!

Now it’s confirmed, the new Star Trek movie is AWESOME! J.J. Abrams did a great job making it a movie for both fans and non-trekkies to enjoy. If Star Trek TOS had been made today this is probably what it would have looked like.

The story made it feel like a true Star Trek movie, an angry romulan (Nero, played by Eric Bana) wants to destroy the Federation, but more to the point the story is about how the crew of the Enterprise from TOS was gathered, with a focus on the lifes of Kirk and Spock.

The general feeling of the movie was truly Star Trek, and the technology fits right in the timeline. The actors also did a great job bringin back all the characters we all love (my favorite beeing Karl Urban as Leonard McCoy obviously). One could recognize the characters before they said their names just from their behaviour and the way they talked. Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto were great as Kirk and Spock. Loved it!

Also, I loved the referens to Enterprise, my favorite of the Star Trek series. ;)

Overall this was a great movie, probably the best movie this year (no way Transformers 2 can beat it). And as I said, you don’t have to be a hard-core fan to enjoy it. Hopefully this will bring a new generation of fans, and a new series! One thing is sure, Star Trek is not dead even though it’s been 43 years since we first met the crew of the Federation Starship Enterprise. Keep ‘em coming!
