… in other words, the new “Star Trek” movie rocks.
We all are living in an altered timeline, in which odd-numbered Trek films don’t suck. This new reality thread we share bodes well for the future of the Trek franchise.
I will not include any spoilers here. I will simply say that this longtime fan found nothing to complain about with this “reboot” — it works within the context of the established Trek multiverse just fine. The cast is good, the movie felt like Trek and it moves along at high warp throughout.
This particular Trek offering is not high on cerebral content, and you’ll spot one or two minor plot flaws. But if you enjoy Trek, I think you’ll enjoy this. And the movie leaves plenty of room for something more brain-heavy next time out. For now just grab some popcorn, silence your communicator and beam yourself to the cineplex.
