First seeing this I thought it would just be a retread of Kirk and Spock growing up. Then about halfway thought the movie it really starts to change and really becomes a reboot. Overall J.J. Abrams did a good job with this Stark Trek movie and Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto as Kirk and Spock are good.
Some people attacked this for having a lot of it borrowed from Star Wars. Like the bar scene and the ice planet but it’s pretty good on it’s own. The cast does a pretty good job as the original Star Trek crew. A The twist and the middle is pretty good for Star Trek and people who watched the other Star Trek movies will go “That didn’t happen!”.
Even though they try to explain it and not ruin the original shows. This way J.J. Abrams can do his own thing with Star Trek without destroying the timeline and the other Star Trek shows people loved. I’m trying not to divulge too much because it’s that good of a movie and I hope people get a chance to see it. This is pretty good for a movie and reboot and the sequel I’ll do some other day as well.
