A nice introduction to the character we all know and love as James Tiberius Kirk. The violence at the bar was a bit gratuitous, though. Poor Kirk does seem to get his butt handed to him on several occasions throughout the film. Other than that, a compelling storyline that is easy to follow. It was nice to see the now late Leonard Nimoy make an appearance. He reminds us just how far back the friendship of Jim and Spock go, and how long Vulcans live!
All of the actors do a great job portraying their future selves, so to speak.
All in all, a terrific film, especially the bonus features of behind the scenes action and interviews.
This is one of the best Star Treks I have ever seen!!!! Having grown up watching Star Trek and Star Trek Next Generation, I was very excited but a little skeptical about how this movie would turn out (think about the X-Men movies, great actors and actress, but no spark). I was very pleasantly surprised the first time I watched it. While the premise was a little crazy, the actors did such a great job that I felt this movie could be a stand alone or go with the original series! The actors were enough like the original cast, that you could easily see this as being their younger selves. Chris Pine did such a great job of giving this movie a hint of comedy without making it a farce! Certainly this is a great gateway to what I hope with be a string of good movies.
Kind of silly, with plot holes you could drive a starship through, and some pretty massive clichés, but a thoroughly enjoyable movie true to the spirit of the Star Trek franchise.
The best moment of the film was in the last scene where Chis Pine's Kirk took over the bridge of the Enterprise for the first time as the real captain, and Pine threw out a perfectly-crafted Shatner swagger on his way to The Chair. Also, it was very nice to see the brilliant Leonard Nimoy do his penultimate (I think) appearance in the pointy ears.
Great effects, lots of explosions and (red shirt) crew members spiraling to certain death in outer space, countless call-backs to the original series, and a really appealing cast make this a movie well worth watching, probably more than once.
