Starring: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoey Saldana, Simon Pegg, Idris Elba, Karl Urban, John Cho, Sofia Boutella, Anton YelchinPlotline: I mean... does the plot of Star Trek change over the past 50 years? To body go where no one has gone before.Review: As with all of my reviews, there will be spoilers for this movie, so if you haven't seen it and want to, don't read this. If you don't care about it being spoiled, read on friends.We join the crew of the S.S. Enterprise on day 966 of their 5 year excursion into the unknown, trying to make it known. The time weighs on James Tiberius Kirk, catching cabin fever out in space essentially. But things are looking up, he and his crew are set to dock at a new space facility to replenish their supplies. This is the most technologically advanced place in the galaxy, so it's filmed beautifully and I thought it was visually gorgeous.Upon landing, Spock is given some ill news, that old man Spock has passed away. We see Kirk trying to move away from being a captain and looking for a more stationary role in the confederation. As this happens a ship docks with a lone survivor on it, she pleads for help from the starlet. Kirk agrees to help her, knowing that they are going into an unknown part of the nebula and they'll be without communication.As they enter that part of the nebula they are attacked by a swarm of ships that literally destroy their ship, landing them on an unknown planet. We find out that it was a plan and the lady who needed help was in cahoots with the villain of the movie, an interplanetary being named Krall.A daring escape from the planet ensues as we find out that Krall is wanting to kill every living being in the academy for some reason. So he takes his swarm of ships to attack the space station, but it's intercepted by Kirk and his friends. The good guys win.That's really all I'll go into with plot line and things, I left out a chunk so that people will see it, but also I find it difficult to talk about this movie in depth without sounding like I'm spouting off for drunk history.I enjoyed the movie, but I cannot say that I think it was ground breaking, or some amazing feat of cinematography. I hear a lot of people say that they enjoyed it a whole bunch because it was very similar to the old Star Trek tv series, which is where the rub comes for me as I did not like the tv series. I was a Star Wars guy, so it was lost on me. That being said, this is still a super entertaining movie to watch. The actors have all nestled nicely into their roles, and Justin Lin taking over as director for JJ Abrams was not that far of a jump. It was visually spectacular, the plot line was pretty linear and didn't have a lot of jumps. The new character Jaylah, played by Sofia Boutella (of Kingsmen fame) was designed after Jennifer Lawrence, which was pretty apparent to me, but still done well.There were a lot of problems with the movie, some confusion with the villain, but it was also cut down by about 45 minutes, so I imagine a longer cut would make a lot more sense.I dunno, I mean... see it if you like Star Trek, but don't go into it expecting to be wowed like with the first one, or with Star Wars or anything.
