Star Trek (2009) review
Looking at J.J Abrams other work, namely Cloverfield, the styles of both of these side by side are indistinguishable, but then in saying that, they are both very different films.
Firstly, I'll say right off the bat that there weren't alot of flaws with this film, but as I've found out, no film is perfect.
All of the aspects of this film were extremely gripping, there was never a dull moment while watching this, every moment of it kept me interested.
Specifically though, was the continuity which interested me. The continuity between the original series and this. I really feel continuity is a major factor when taking on something which has a major history. Bridging the gap is something that was done beautifully, even if the bridge was a small one.
The story itself could've been better, even though it was interesting, it seemed rather like an extended episode of Star Trek rather than a film. Although that in itself wasn't a bad thing, it just seemed like a rushed plot to me. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe I'm just excreting nonsense, but it's what I thought.
The effects were as expected for a film of this calibre, and rightfully earned it's place in line with the rest of the Star Trek films.
This review was minimal for a reason. All shall be explained in due time. All shall be explained.
