Tonight, [livejournal.com profile] esrblog and I went with [livejournal.com profile] pmat and [livejournal.com profile] shakati to see the new Star Trek movie.

I really enjoyed it. The best part was how well the young actors playing...the counterparts of the beloved Star Trek characters captured the personalities of those characters.

I won't go into the kind of detail that would require an lj-cut to avoid spoilers, but I will make a few comments about various aspects of the movie.


* The casting; splendid. Even with regard to the minor characters; Captain Pike was particularly good.

* The visuals; excellent. The Enterprise looked much the same as always, from the outside, but the inside was much higher-tech than the Enterprise of the old 1960s series. The crew uniforms were mixed. The off-duty uniforms were spiffier than what the original Enterprise bridge crew wore, but the bridge crew here wore uniforms of an even cheesier fabric than the jersey used in the original series.

* The plot concept; not bad. It involves temporal paradox, as a number of reviewers mentioned. It also gave Leonard Nimoy a splendid opportunity for a cameo performance that he obviously relished.

* The plot holes; characteristic of Trek as usual.

* The physics; ah, don't ask.

* The prospect for more sequels; fairly good actually, but if they keep this cast, I'll watch them. Every one.
