Star Trek 2009 - Four Stars
I was a kid when the first television Star Trek series came out and my brothers and sister and I watched every episode. Then we watched again when it went into syndication. I became a fan also of Next Generation, but couldn't get into Voyager or the one with Scott Bakula after that. But I did like the films with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. Nothing can beat the original cast, and I was very pleased with this new film version because the casting department took such great care to hire actors who could express the same character traits as the originals. We knew who each one was before they even identified themselves.
The CGI is awesome in this film. My favorite scene was when all the Star Fleet ships were in space dock getting ready to head off to most of their fates. I won't give any more away in case some of you haven't seen it yet, but I highly recommend this film to all Trekkies, and those who are interested in sci-fi and Star Trek films. This is one we plan on buying in Blu-Ray for our personal collection.
