Star Trek (2009), a Mr. E Movie Review

(Run time: 127 min. – Directed by: J. J. Abrams – Starring: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Eric Bana, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana)

I saw the previews, downloaded the trailers, attended a pre-release hype party, and lined up on the first night to see the new Star Trek movie. You might think I risked a chance of being over exposed or hyping a film up too much, and thus, risking an overly critical outcome…nope. Even with all the expectations this movie has not only lived up to the hype but it even surpasses it!

The movie’s about the origin of the USS Enterprise being launched from Earth into space and the original formation of her beloved crew. Kirk, Spock, Bones and Ohura graduate from the Star Fleet Academy and set off into space where the time traveling Nero, played by Eric Bana, is hell bent on revenge. The focus of his wrath is Spock, the one he believes destroyed his home planet.

Chris Pine played the young James T. Kirk. Pine captured such a realistic part of this character that not only was more believable than the original, but better, in my opinion. He truly came off as a relentless rebel and I loved it! Then there was Spock played by Zachary Quinto. Again, Zachary Quinto played young Spock so well that his performance was so good that it was a stand out even right next to the original Spock, Leonard Nemoy. I think what I liked most was the fact he was such a young and driven character, that was so true to the Vulcan way, and yet just enough human to be perfectly balanced. Bones, played by Karl Urban, was such a wise cracking, smart ass that I thought he was channeling his original counter part! Ohura played by Zoe Saldana was hot! She was so strong and intelligent that I can really see her having the entire fleet wrapped around her little ear piece.

I definitely recommend this movie to anybody looking for an excellent movie watching experience! It is probably one of the year’s best pictures, hands down! I am eagerly salivating for a sequel! Star Trek is sure to live long and prosper!
