So I never seen or even remotely cared for any of the Star Trek movies or TV series. But after seeing the trailers I was more than intrigue. Add the fact that JJ Abrams was directing it and Zachary Quinto as Spock just seemed too [mod edit] cool to pass up.
And boy did it deliver.
I'm sure I missed a lot of popular references to the old movies and TV series, but he story line was good enough that someone new to the series like me, could follow without missing a beat(for the most part anyways). Although it felt weird and somewhat funny when people were going oohh and ahhh every time a new character and especially when Leonard Nimoy were finally introduced. My GF and I were like, "guess we missed the reference" :lol:
I thought the characters and their interactions were spot on, the humor really helped keep the movie from being dull as I though it might be. Bones injecting Kirk and later causing a allergy reaction was hilarious. The Spock/Kirk dynamic was developed brilliantly and it really made the movie.
Basically, this movie is right up there with Batman Begins and Casino Royale(another franchise i never cared for until recently) with how to reboot a franchise the right way. I'm sure I'll never be a full-on Trekkie or get into the previous Star Treks, but I'm a fan of JJ Abrams' Star Trek.
