Aro Recommended Star Trek


aka: Star Trek XI (Reboot)
USA 2009, 127 minutes
Dir. J.J. Abrams
Rating: [M]
Genres: Science Fiction, Action/Adventure


Aroview: Enterprising and entirely effective "reboot" of the Sci-Fi franchise, charting the early days of Captain Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise.

With renewed energy and an adventurous spirit, this re-haul reminds us that there’s still life in the old ship yet, dir. Abrams setting a relentless pace from the get-go that never slows - indeed, the entire crew is rounded up on a mission to save the galaxy by the 40 (!) minute mark. The thrill-a-minute proceedings are complimented by an excellent cast who tackle their familiar characters with youthful exuberance, uttering some of the more dorky Star Trek-speak with genuine, up-and-at-em’ sincerity. Newcomers will love it as a pure popcorn blockbuster, and for Trekkies, their favourite characters are never treated with anything other than love, albeit with a sprinkling of gentle mockery.
