Warning! This review contains Spoliers

  • I liked the first Star Trek movie, so I thought I would like the second one

  • I was correct.

  • it is a enjoyable sci-fi popcorn film. If your a sucker for movies that take place in space and in space ships, your in luck.

  • Hardcore trekkies will probably be offended by such Hollywood blasphemy

  • I dig the accents on crew. Checkov has an awesome Russian accent and so does the Scottish/English guy.

  • some silly plot holes and general implausibility though. Are we really supposed to believe that the spaceship that drops off Spock in the Volcano can't take the heat, but somehow Spock's spacesuit can????

  • or are we really supposed to believe that Kirk gets his high rank back after a desperate plea from his friend after he violated the Federation's key rules?

  • despite some drawbacks, enjoyable movie is enjoyable

in a nutshell

enjoyable flick for sci-fi fans

Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.
