Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Who would've thought that J.J. Abrams could reboot one of the greatest science fiction franchises ever and pump it full of new life and energy? But did it live up to all of your expectations? Were you a Trekkie who hated it or a non-Trekkie who loved it (or vice versa)? Did J.J. Abrams pull off one of the most exciting origin stories we've seen in a long time, or was it a dull, boring, geeky ensemble mess not worth all the hype? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of Star Trek!
To fuel the fire, as I already said in my review, I absolutely loved Star Trek. First of all, it looks gorgeous, thanks to all of the work Abrams and his creative team put into this. Secondly, I had a blast watching it, it's a great experience full of so much excitement. I've seen it twice now and it only gets better the more I watch it. There are some minor issues with the script, but overall it's a great story that I enjoyed watching it play out. And third, the acting was unbelievably top notch - Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto kick some ass, and so do Karl Urban, Bruce Greenwood, and of course, Leonard Nimoy. All around a solid summer blockbuster.
What did you think of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek? Epic sci-fi at its finest or glorious trash?
