Review: Star Trek (3/5)

DIRECTOR: J.J. Abrams (Alias, Lost)

TAGLINE: The Future Begins

STARRING: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto (Sylar of Heroes), Eric Bana, Zoe Aldana, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Winona Ryder

THE GIST: The maiden voyage of the USS Enterprise is disrupted when an advanced Romulan space ship attacks the planet Vulcan and threatens the United Federation of Planets. It is the task of the young crew of seven to save the day.

BOSTON GLOBE SAYS: Trading on affections sustained over 40 years of popular culture, Star Trek does what a franchise reboot rarely does. It reminds us why we loved these characters in the first place.

I SAY: Witty dialogue, wormholes opening in time-space subplot, excellent cast, comic punch lines, sci-fi storyline, and larger-than-life special effects made this Star Trek reboot a intergalactic fare to be seen and enjoyed. I wouldn’t be surprised if this turned out to be the best US summer blockbuster of the year.
