Star Trek
2009
 
Capt. Kirk (Chris Pine) and his trusted team on the starship USS Enterprise boldly go where no man has gone before in this installment of Gene Roddenberry's sci-fi franchise that follows the early days of the intergalactic adventurers. The crew includes Spock (Zachary Quinto), Chekov (Anton Yelchin), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Scotty (Simon Pegg) and Sulu (John Cho). Eric Bana co-stars, and Leonard Nimoy appears as an older version of Spock.

The first half was fantastic - good plot and character development with an intriguing story, plus a dash of action. The star-studded cast doesn't hurt matters either - creating some excellent characters. Exactly half way through it flipped and felt like someone different wrote the other half of the movie.

In a very JJ Abrams manner of destroying the film they threw in an alien wolf trying to eat Kirk, suddenly mauled by a giant alien dinosaur attempting to eat him. The shadowy opponent was promptly turned into a cliche super-villain.

I haven't watched much Star Trek so I don't know if the story fits canon, but the first half should make sci-fi fans proud. The second half should be relegated to a B-movie cutting room floor.
