Finally saw the movie a second time (this time in 3D), and I have to admit... I thought it was a helluva lot better this time.
I'm still not crazy about the kind
of story being told of course (all the fantastic worlds and adventures out there, and we're stuck watching the crew go on some Rambo-style revenge mission to capture a terrorist? Really??), but it is what it is, and the movie still manages to tell that story in a pretty exciting way. And the overall plot even seemed to hold together a lot better than I remembered too.
(Although I am still annoyed at the fact the Enterprise never even fires so much as a phaser during the entire movie. I mean, I get that the ship was supposed to be completely outmatched during the battle, but it'd be nice to see it put up SOME kind of fight early on!)
