Like most of you, I went and saw the new Star Trek film this past weekend. I don’t consider myself a “Trekkie” although I did thoroughly enjoy the original Star Trek series and the Next Generation series and I also have seen all of the past Star Trek movies. I went into the new Star Trek film familiar with the characters, their personalities and knowing a lot of their background yet as I watched the movie I still felt like I was getting to know each character all over again. I loved the character development and I think the casting for each part was perfect. Even though I am familiar with Star Trek and I knew the overall outcome of the film, I was still on the edge of my seat for the whole film.
I think J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek is pretty close to a perfect film, it had just the right amount of action, comedy, drama and suspense to captivate any type of movie goer. J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek also kept true to the nature and the characters of the original show for the fans yet introduced new ideas and traits to also win over the newcomers.
