Watching this I was excited after the 2009 reboot and that Benedict Cumberbatch was in this since he was so good in Sherlock. He’s good in this too as well as all the other enterprise crew make an appearance. There’s also this random scene of some girl in her underwear as just a way to have sex appeal, maybe. As this movie went on though around the middle it felt like a remake of Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan.
There’s going to be another movie I think this year called Star Trek: Beyond maybe involving the five year mission and maybe the Dominion. There is a graphic novel series of how this five year mission and how it goes in the reboot timeline. There’s also some trailers for it and some Star Trek fans think it might involve the Dominion since one alien looks like a Jem’hadar. If you don’t know what that is check Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and it explains the Dominion and the Jem’hadar. Even though I heard they won’t recycle any Star Trek villains in Star Trek: Beyond. Overall this movie is okay and still feels like a retread of The Wrath of Khan and J.J. Abrams is still pretty good director. Watch it if your still a Star Trek fan or a Benedict Cumberbatch fan too.
