Re: The Official STAR TREK Grading & Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]

I voted average. I just saw the movie on DVD and I have to say it felt more like an action movie with the Star Trek brand on it than a Star Trek movie with an action brand. Very entertaining, but a movie you forget the moment it's over. It's just good popcorn movie stuff. And I don't watch Trek mainly for that.

So I do understand why this movie was more successfull (especially with the younger audiences), because it played more to the rules of successfull action. But as Trek is leaves me cold. I do not care much for the "new" characters, they feel more comical than mature to me; I sometimes thought, I watch a movie version of an action comic (manga style). Well, "Matrix" was the same in that category, but it had a strong philosophical core, that I cannot see here.

So, the 11th Trek won't find its way into my DVD collection. It stays a rental DVD experience.
