Absolutely awesome movie. IMAX 3D is a must.

Movie was very good.

Makes me yearn for a new TV series with this cast.

I'd heard rumors about Gorn returning in this movie. I guess that was not correct.

They returned in the official video game.

They took a great movie and turned it into an OK one.

Saw it in 3D--first movie I've ever seen in 3D. Really, and I hated it. It reminds me of those old "3D" video games like Doom where there's depth, sort of, but everything is still conspicuously flat. It's distracting. The worst part was that the whole screen was significantly dimmer than it should have been. And either there was something wrong with the setup I watched, or the 3d occasionally makes parts of the picture blurry.

As for the movie, it was better than the first one, but still really shallow. Again they had to ramp everything up "to eleven," and again the plot oscillated between being absurd and nonsensical. I liked the way everybody had something to do, though, but man did it drag on. And I thought Kirk might have an arc or something, but then, nope

...he decides to do whatever the hell he wants just like he did at the beginning. The only reason he doesn't lose his command for good is because he kills the guy who could take it away (who turns out to be homicidal for no apparent reason.)

He doesn't kill him, though. Harrison does.

 

PS - I'm assuming you mean Marcus. It was just the typical "covering up loose ends" plot.

I get it, the admiral wanted to start a war and pin it on Kirk, the loose cannon. But he couldn't come up with a plan that didn't involve using up one of his secret weapons (the torpedoes) and losing one of the handful of ships they apparently had left? Was he supposed to win the entire war himself with that one ship? And how was he going to get away with shooting up the Enterprise when half the people on Earth could have seen it with a telescope? And whatever happened to the war, anyway? Did the Klingons just decide not to bother with it after all? And that's just the tip of the iceberg; the movie is a mess.

Can someone please tell me the spoiler I posted in tags was completely wrong? Heheh.

Saw it the 2nd time last night. I'm going to share my formal thoughts on it soon, but I did enjoy it with a few nagging issues that bug me. If I had to rank the film, I would say the first one of the reboots (2009) was the better film overall.

If that's the worst thing that can be said, then i'm still in. smile.gif

This turned out to be spot on too. smile.gif
