I’ve always been more of a Trekkie than a Star Wars fan. I have fond memories of watching episodes with my family in the evenings. Although I was a little too young to understand everything that was going on, I still enjoyed the show. Since the reboot I have really enjoyed the plot lines and character developments. Therefore when the third instalment came out, I went to watch it.
It took me a while to decide whether or not to review this movie as I am no expert on cinematography terms. This review will mostly include things that I really liked about the movie.
Plot line Vs Trailer.
The trailer makes us believe that the movie is all about Captain Kirk’s retirement or his decision to retire. Although this is one of the themes in the movie, I didn’t experience it as the MAIN theme.
I really enjoyed the plot line as it reminded me of an extended episode based on the original design of the series. ie: the ship goes on a mission, the ships gets damaged and the crew is stranded on an unknown territory with an unknown enemy.
Star Trek was action packed with lots of explosions and even a scene with a motorcycle. What can be more bad-ass than a motorcycle scene?
Then there was the fight scene with Jaylah where she saves Scotty from bandits. It is an intriguing scene with lots of jumping, kicking and nifty tricks up Jaylah’s sleeve. It was a scene that made me want to take up kickboxing or the likes. I thinks she was an amazing character and can’t wait to see more of her in the future.The scripts was well written and included some truly funny moments. I enjoyed Dr McCoy’s sarcastic remarks. I also really enjoyed the characters referring to this song as ‘classical music’.
Some of my other favorite characters includes Dr McCoy with his dry humor, Scotty and off course the friendship and camaraderie between Captain James T. Kirk and Commander Spock
