I am not now nor have I ever been, a Trekkie. However, I’m pretty sure I’ll watch anything J. J. Abrams makes. Damn can that guy (and his people) tell a story.
Also, the acting is great. I mean I love everyone in this cast, even the bad guys. Was that Robo Cop? While I thoroughly enjoy Simon Pegg as Scotty, Bones will always be my favorite character in this new set of movies. Although John Cho’s Sulu comes in a close second because he’s kick ass.
This movie, like the last, has the right mix of action, comedy, and storytelling. (Kaaaaaaahhnnnn!). I loved how it started “in medias res”. Seconds into the flick and I’m on the edge of my seat.
Not to spoil anything for anyone, but at one point, I thought, “Why is there a Jedi in this movie?” Apparently, he’s a Sith.
While I haven’t yet seen Iron Man 3 (I will), this movie is a great way to kick of the summer block buster season.
