As you may have read I have seen the new Star Trek film a few times now and I must admit it is a great film. I do follow other blogs and reviews and I admit I am surprised at some of the comments being made.

When I heard that J. J. Abrams had said that the film was not for fans I was concerned at what would be done to the Star Trek Genre, However I was pleasantly surprised as it did hold something for every one, I think a good story, lot’s of action (the film was a lot quicker paced than any previous Star Trek adventure) and held true to the “Working to a better future” that is part of the Star Trek Philosophy.

I thought that the production placed the appropriate amount of respect (Nods) to previous events and themes within the Star Trek genre without it being a parody or tiresome. I have read that a lot of fans dislike as it does not follow canon rigidly, again this is not a bad thing (any deviations are explained by the story apart from one, The Spock love interest) as it does allow for new ideas that will bring a new generation to Star Trek.

I also think the film deservers a better review than just “Another summer blockbuster “they should read more like “A great Star Trek adventure that also turned out to be a summer blockbuster“


Remember that Paramount (the rights owners to Star Trek) had cancelled Star Trek: Enterprise and had in fact indicated that for the foreseeable future there would be no further Star Trek works, so this new film has in fact started a new interest in the Star Trek genre which can only be a good thing.

I would say to anyone, fan or not, go see the film it is an enjoyable Sci-Fi in it’s on right.

I look forward to the release to DVD & Blue Ray.
