Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

JJ Abrams's franchise reboot - the 11th Star Trek motion picture - is a prequel to the original TV series. With its big budget and top-flight digital effects, the film is designed to snare a new audience while featuring enough in-jokes to satisfy the old guard. A young, impulsive James T Kirk (Chris Pine) reluctantly attends Starfleet Academy and stows aboard the USS Enterprise. His relationship with Vulcan first officer Spock (Zachary Quinto) gets off to a frosty start, but thaws in the grip of an epic battle with Romulan foe Nero (Eric Bana). Light relief is provided by Simon Pegg's offbeat engineer Scotty and an already grumpy Dr "Bones" McCoy (Karl Urban). With the help of his young and pretty cast, Abrams successfully revives the generations-old formula.
