This is a bit of a cheat Film Review. I have to admit that I absented myself from the room for about five minutes. (Can’t cope with extreme intimidation or torture. My imagination always goes too far when presented with the opportunity.) The main reason I wanted to comment on it was because of the quality of the computer graphics and also the totally believable actors. The storyline was innovative too.
I was a reluctant watcher of the Star Trek series and the films. It comes from being the mother of four sons and married to their Sci-Fi addicted father. So I was interested to see what imaginative forces were at work in constructing a prequel to the original series. Star Trek is clever, fun and exciting viewing – notwithstanding the fact that I had to make a sudden exit. And it was sheer pleasure to see the way that each character from the series was introduced with quite spectacular flair and relevance.
If you are interested in a full opinion, then this critique in the Guardian says it all much better than I can. The reviewer says
this new Star Trek is fast-moving, funny, exciting warp-speed entertainment and, heaven help me, even quite moving….
Let me know if you have seen it.
