Scotty (Simon) Was not introduced until the movie was 2/3rds done to say the least. As a movie I give it 7.5-8/10. As a Trek movie 2.5 at the most.
yeah im withSteve on this one.
I dont want to learn about Star Trek all over again ( that y we have ToS and ToS Movies and TNG), and if you are a True Trek Fan, youwill respect all that Gene Roddenberry created(remeber him) and go with the canon and timeline that HE created and not what some non-Trekkie dreamed up and re-vamped....
accepting this movie as "the way it is now" is like sying that "all" the other movies never happened.....I cant accept that.
I thought the Effects were superb, and the storyline was ok, although it did remond me a little of ST Nemesis" with the villian wanting revenge (what happened to Originality?)
Uhuraha and Spock?..LMMFAO....gimme a break man!!!
Kirrk , Spock, Sulu, Checkov characters were well played.
Scotty really needed Victors accent cus man that acent to me sucked big donkey!!
Like Disruptor stated, and i said this in my review......this is an Alternate Trek Universeand not according to Gene...thats my main Gripe....if ya cant respect that? then ya cant respect what Gene Roddenberry Created and started and meant for the Franchise.
Gene Meant for the Franchise to go Forward in the Trek timeline and not be revamped and re-created in our time.
Trek could have been revitalised with a new crew(remeber TNG) new look and storyline without sacrificing the past or canon, and still have the same effect as this Movie did.
People these Days are just to DAMN lazy to be creative anymore and make something Original ...but instead the rehash the past all in the name of the Mighty dolar and at the expense of the Trek fan base.
This Movie was like "Ironman" to me all bells and whistles but thats as far as it goes.
I remember as a young man seeing STMP on the big screen and at that time we were all wowed cus that was like Big effectsfor us that we never seen before(like star wars 2 years earlier) and that was Creativity and a Great Storyline that led to other chars being born in the ST Universe (like the Borg)
That was Trekat its best on the big screen
A Majority of todays younger generation cant appreciate movies like that or 2001 space oddysey because of all of the state of the art CGI that has spoiled them.
in my book there will ALWAYS be 1 Star trek timeline as well as Kirk and Spock, and thats what Gene Roddenberry created and not no noob.
But yeah the Movie was good and it will rake in lotsa money for Paramount, but at the cost of what Gene Roddenberry created, and meant for the Franchise, and to me thats just wrong.
did you and your girl yell Rape!!! at the Kirk and Spock Scene?..lmao
