Movie Summary

Director:
J.J. Abrams
Released:
2009
Rating:
PG-13

On their action-filled journey, new recruits: Kirk, Bones, Sulu, Uhurra and Chekov have to stop a Romulan force who is on a mission of vengeance that threatens all mankind. Kirk and Spock begin as bitter rivals, with Kirk being a delinquent, emotional thrill-seeker, and Spock being the opposite; a logic-based stoic. When a Romulan ship is found drilling into Vulcan's core, it is discovered that captain Nero is drilling red matter into the core, which creates a black hole and consumes the planet and its residents. Under the pressure of unimaginable danger, the two form an unlikely but powerful partnership to lead the crew to victory in the hit film adaptation of the TV classic, Star Trek.

    Blasting onto the screen at warp speed and remaining there for two hours, the new and improved Star Trek will transport fans to sci-fi nirvana.

    Isn't just a pleasurable rethink of your geek uncle's favorite science-fiction series. It's also a testament to television's power as mythmaker, as a source for some of the fundame...

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Though it has its over-caffeinated aspects and its missteps, this Star Trek has in general bridged the gap between the old and the new with alacrity and purpose.

    The Best Star Trek movie ever after Into Darkness: Star Trek.
  • Spock was always much older than Kirk...

    6.5
    in this film they were about the same age. Kind of a boo boo in terms of Trekkie lore which isn't exactly a big secret to anyone over the age of 25. Following the Hollywood maxim of bigger is better we have bigger bad guys in a huge Romulan mining vessel from the future that never appeared in any form in the original Star Trek show-suspension of disbelief time maybe-I see it more as a blatant attempt to cash in on the Trek franchise. There was an even bigger alien ship in the 1979 first Star Trek movie which had the added benefit of being part of a plot that actually made some sense. ST 2009 was not pure awfulness but it was not up to par despite lavish special effects-which kind of worked agains the movies overall effectiveness to me. Mediocre with all the trimmings is still Mediocre.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Sarek: Emotions run deep within our race. In many ways, more deeply than in humans. Logic offers a serenity humans seldom experience. The control of feelings, so that they do not control you.

    • Kirk: So, you're a cadet, your studying. What's your focus?
      Uhura: Xenolinguistics. You have no idea what that means.
      Kirk: The study of alien languages. Morphology, phonology, syntax. It means you've got a talented tongue.
      Uhura: I'm impressed. For a moment there I thought you were a dumb hick who only has sex with farm animals.
      Kirk: Well, not only.

    • Kirk: I think these things are pretty safe.
      Bones: Don't pander to me, kid. One tiny crack in the hull and our blood boils in 13 seconds. A solar flare might crop up, cook us in our seats. And wait till you're sitting pretty with a case of Andorian shingles. See if you're still so relaxed when your eyeballs are bleeding. Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence.
      Kirk: Well, I hate to break this to you, but Starfleet operates in space.
      Bones: Yeah, well, I got nowhere else to go. The ex-wife took the whole damn planet in the divorce. All I got left is my bones.

    • Bones: Permission to speak freely, sir.
      Spock: I welcome it.
      Bones: Do you? Okay, then. Are you out of your Vulcan mind? Are you making a logical choice, sending Kirk away? Probably. But the right one? You know, back home we got a saying, "If you're gonna ride in the Kentucky Derby, you don't leave your prize stallion in the stable."
      Spock: A curious metaphor, Doctor, as a stallion must first be broken before it can reach its potential.
      Bones: My God, man, you could at least act like it was a hard decision.
      Spock: I intend to assist in the effort to reestablish communications with Starfleet. However, if crew morale is better served by my roaming the halls weeping, I will gladly defer to your medical expertise. Excuse me. (Spock walks away)
      Bones: Green-blooded hobgoblin.

    • Sarek: Speak your mind, Spock.
      Spock: That would be unwise.
      Sarek: What is necessary is never unwise.
