Thanks for asking that question, SalvorHardin. It's definitely annoying in the clips and trailers that we've seen

I recently revisited Abrams' Mission Impossible 3.
He used his technique there too and there where lens flares all over the film but it didn't bother me at all.
So I'm hopping it will be ok with Trek as well.

But lets wait for the answer of one of the folks who have seen it.

Another question for the lucky few...

A lot has been said in the past about the lens flares in the film and with the few clips that have been released yesterday and today people are talking about it again.

So how is it in the movie ? Are they noticeable, annoying, add realism, you hardly pay attention to them ? What's the story ?
weird. i don't even remember. so noticeable... i guess not.

Re: Advance screening/World Premiere discussions [the NO-SPOILERS vers

What about the 'shakycam' style stuff? Is there a lot of that?

I just saw a clip on You Tube where Spock confronts Kirk and Scotty after they beam aboard during warp flight and the lens flares are a bit too much.

It's amazing to me how many more page views the spoiler thread has. I'm staying the hell out of that thread ha ha!

Re: Advance screening/World Premiere discussions [the NO-SPOILERS vers

I'm thrilled that everyone enjoyed the movie so much! After completely ruining Nemesis like I did, I'm refusing to go anywhere where there may be major spoilers... though I'm not strong enough to avoid the clips that get released! Getting more and more excited by the day!

Glad the flick is getting awesome reviews. I'm staying out of the spoiler thread as much as I can. I don't want this film ruined.

Re: Advance screening/World Premiere discussions [the NO-SPOILERS vers

So if this movie is a huge success, can we get J.J. to reboot the Star Wars prequel trilogy too?

Though that would probably mean Terry O'Quinn as Qui-Gon, Keri Russell as Padme, Joshua Jackson as Anakin, Lance Reddick as Mace Windu, Alan Dale as Dooku...

It has it's moments where it's more prominent, but it's not Cloverfield-esque in intensity. When it's there it adds to feel.

One other thing to note about the visual effects: the Firefly/BSG shaky/zoom/focusing camera style is present (not to the extent in those shows though). I think it adds a sense of realism.
