First things first, I hate the Star Trek series, and movies. I hate anything that has to do with Star Trek. However, I was dragged to the midnight showing last night, and honestly... I was very pleased.
The movie was quite entertaining. The character development (something I LOVE in movies) was pretty solid, and it was cool to understand Abrams view of how Kirk took command of his ship, and made a friendship with Spock, who seemed like quite the douche bag when younger.
The action was great, and Eric Bana played the villain absolutely perfect. Chris Pine played in his first lead role and did a fantastic job, and most likely earned himself a few other jobs. He was funny, rebellious, and just wanted to kick anybody who got in his way's asses.
This movie was a pleasant surprise to me, and while I don't completely understand the plot (because I'm out of the loop on the Star Trek bullshit), I still enjoyed it a lot.
Even if you can't stand Star Trek, go see it, you'll be entertained to say the least.
