I really wanted to like this
18 December, 2013
2 hours watching things explode and people yell and run and say stupid, sentimental BS to each other in the most predictable ways just doesn't cut it for me anymore. Maybe it's because I'm no longer 17, and I've seen that sort of movie too many times already.
Let me just say this for the few that still demand a little respect for their intellect. This movie will not give it to you. You will see lots of explosions - really, really lots of it. You will see people running around. And that's about 90% of the movie. The rest is people talking like it matters, but only platitudes that have been said 10000 times before come out. The friendship of Kirk and Spock, which is supposedly the emotional core of the story, is simply a joke. The bad guy is a cardboard-cutout type you see in every second movie. Scotty is the only one saying a few funny lines, but as a character he is just as hollow as everything else.
To sum it up: same old, same old. I guess if you're under 25 and haven't seen that thing 1000 times already, you might find it entertaining in a very shallow way. But do not expect to see or hear anything here that you haven't seen or heard before many times.
I can only weep for the Star Wars series, seeing what JJA made of Star Trek. 3/10 for the effects.
The BLU RAY i will only recommend for hard core fans or Nerds in other words
