Star TrekJ J Abrams reboot of the Star Trek franchise sees the familiar characters of the original Star Trek as they are starting out. It's a film that has attempted to open up Star Trek to a new generation and also to make the cast a lot more youthful.

The story centers around James Kirk a maverick who is reluctantly recruited into Starfleet to follow in his deceased fathers footsteps. Here he meets familiar characters that are given a new lease of life - Spock, Bones, Uhura and Scotty as they begin their careers on the Starship Enterprise.

This was billed as a Star Trek film when the viewer doesn't need to be a Star Trek fan (and I'm not) so it was with interest that I watched this film. To be honest there were so many nods to the existing Star Trek I felt left out of the fun, like being invited to the party but no one talks to you when you get there. Without being a Trek fan I feel that there is a lot of story missing in this film. It looks good - the effects are good, the cast have been chosen and fulfil their roles very well but I found the story flimsy and I found that for me it fell well short of a good si-fi film.
