Star Trek (2009 Movie Review)

Updated on May 17, 2013


If there was one word to sum up the new Star Trek film it would be EPIC. I absolutely loved not only the excitement, but the emotional depth that was covered in the film. These characters had their own lives and problems, but finally were able to come together in order to save the world. (Or shall I say the universe)

It is interesting to see Star Trek series come to life as a huge blockbuster movie. Even compared to some of its earlier releases of full scale movies, it has surpassed I feel on quality and emotional depth. You really feel like you get to know the characters as they are young and growing up. The simple fact that they were able to get through such traumatic experiences is amazing if not unrealistic. However, I do feel at some points, such as the time when Spock beat on Kirk and almost strangled him was definitely a human emotion that I think a normal person might react like. Although, I know that if I was in a situation like that when my whole planet had been destroyed I would probably be totally incoherent and absolutely unequivocally in a state of denial and complete and utter despair. (Of course, we must realize this is a movie, and I guess that is what makes it great.)

The simple fact that something of this caliber can take you into a future time and place is something that is a treat for the senses. This film allows you to release your mind and "boldly go where no one has gone before."

I give this film 5 stars out of 5! (And nothing less!)

If you would like to read the complete synopsis I would recommend reading the Star Trek Film Wikipedia Page.

The Music

As a musician and composer, I have to comment on the soundtrack.  In my opinion, it is nothing short of wonderful.  I really think it does capture the mood and excitement of the movie and really helps draw you into the story.  The score was composed by Michael Giacchino.  I am probably going to purchase the soundtrack in the near future.  (And I only buy the best!)

      Hey RedElf! Thanks for stopping by...I really do enjoy movies like this. Maybe my next review I should do The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
