Star Trek Movie Review by Access Hollywood.

“Star Trek”
Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Eric Bana
Directed by J.J. Abrams

LOS ANGELES, Calif. --Finally, a “Star Trek” voyage that boldly goes where no “Trek” has gone before. Vibrantly and idealistically directed by J.J. Abrams (“Mission: Impossible III”) and smartly co-written by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman (“Transformers”), the eleventh feature in the long-running series is not just a great “Star Trek” movie — it’s a great movie, period. And for that reason alone, Gene Roddenberry — who created “Star Trek” 43 years ago — would have been proud.

And it’s about time, too. Years before “Trek” was a lucrative franchise fueled by die-hard fans (known as Trekkers), conventions and a merchandising empire, it was a struggling TV show that had a meager budget, flimsy sets and cheesy special effects. But thanks to great writing, compelling stories and fully realized characters, the original series — which aired on NBC-TV from 1966 to 1969 — has endured to this day and is still the greatest “Trek” of them all.

But the last movie, 2002’s “Nemesis,” stalled out at just $42 million domestically — the lowest grossing in the series. And the last TV show, “Enterprise,” was canceled in 2005 after just four years — three seasons short of its spin-off predecessors. What “Star Trek” needed was a fresh set of eyes to re-energize the stale series, similar to the way “Casino Royale” and “Batman Begins” re-invented the James Bond and Batman franchises, respectively.

By giving the Starship Enterprise a brand-spanking new refit, Abrams, Orci and Kurtzman have effectively re-booted “Star Trek” as a spectacular adventure for everyone — especially for younger moviegoers. Liberties have been taken to break away from the original mythology (which may irk some fans), but this is first and foremost a “Trek” film for people who have never seen “Trek” before. It’s an epic, fun, humorous and action-packed movie first and a great “Star Trek” movie second — and that is exactly what “Trek” needs to truly live long and prosper.
