I just got back from seeing Star Trek and I can definitely say it surpassed any idea I had previously formed about how great this movie was going to be. I was so excited when the previews began I just wanted to get to the movie as I felt like I had been waiting years to finally see this and I couldn’t really wrap my head around the fact I was actually seeing it finally

You can read what I thought under the cut, it’s not really spoilery but mentions a few details. Feel free to discuss if you to have had the chance to see it or you can join the forum and do so there as well!

Thanks so much to Mark of PopRepublic for giving me the heads up 😉 Be sure to check out the entire review here

Chris especially manages to show the arrogance and the humanity in Kirk that we loved from William Shatner

April 20, 2009 has posted their review of the film, which they gave a 8/10. I would say that’s pretty great wouldn’t you? 🙂

But it’s Pine, stepping into the staccato-delivery shoes of William Shatner, who’s the standout, with an instantly star-making turn. His grin veers just the right side of smackable, luring in even the most sceptical of viewer while his stand-offs with Quinto’s Spock add depth and huge dramatic tension to a film that already excites, moves and compels.

April 18, 2009 posted the UK review of ‘Star Trek’ which is actually worth the entire read, but for those interested in what was said about Chris then you can see it below. Read the full review here.

Yet scriptwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and of course Pine and Quinto who play the duo, succeed brilliantly in this aim and give the movie (and hopefully the ensuing franchise) its heart and soul. The pair are just perfectly cast. Pine looks and sounds nothing like Shatner, but gets right to the essence of Kirk’s character with his combination of rough-shod charm and cocky arrogance. The actor looks like just another product of Hollywood’s bland pretty-boy conveyor belt, but actually proves extremely charismatic and nails the part.

FAN REVIEW #1 SNIPPET: As far as performances go, Chris Pine is outstanding. He’s the embodiment of a conflicted soul, transcending the cliche of the troubled rebel with a greater destiny. His delivery manages to give depth while maintaining the cocky veneer. You can read the full fan review here

FAN REVIEW #2 SNIPPET: First and foremost is Chris Pine as James Tiberius Kirk — with the unquantifiable big shoes of William Shatner to be filled, Pine steps up and delivers a performance that is well beyond anything you might expect. He captures the arrogance and fortitude of Kirk while also keeping that bit of humanity and depth that Shatner was so good at. Kirk is reckless at times, but he’s smart and ever-confident in his own abilities — and Pine captures that quite well. You can read the full fan review here

TrekMovie previously reported that JJ Abrams has completed a first rough cut of his Star Trek movie and now it appears that he is showing it off. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back director Kevin Smith was a guest on KROQ’s Kevin and Bean show this morning and the subject of the new Star Trek movie came up with Smith giving a positive review of the movie, but in a roundabout way.

Kevin talks about what he can’t talk about
Although it was never said explicitly, it appears Kevin Smith was given an early viewing of Star Trek, but he was very much trying to deny that he had, or at least not come out and say anything that would break the ‘cone of silence’ around JJ Abrams ultra-secret project. Early in the show when Kevin joined in, one of the hosts said “somebody’s seen the new Star Trek movie, I understand?” At which point Smith sardonically dismissed the question. Then much later in the show, after recounting his thoughts on his early screening of the Watchmen movie, Smith was asked if he has seen anything else. Here is the exchange:
