Just got out. I'll keep from including anything that could spoil anything for anyone. Also, as apparently needs to be made known in any Star Trek thread, I am not a Star Trek fan in any way. I love the first of the reboot, but I hadn't watched any of the previous films. Anyways, here goes.
That movie was sweeeeeeet! Visually it was breathtaking. I saw it in IMAX 3D, and it was the closest thing since Avatar to visuals. Some scenes, like the opening scene and some space fights, are epic in the 3D, just epic.
The main villain was a sweet character, one of the better villains in a long time. Alice Eve's character was a pretty weak addition, but jesus she could've been the janitor and it would've been a great casting, dat body is insane.
If I had any criticisms it'd be that at times it went a little too querky in line with The Avengers when it could have gotten a little darker, grittier. It's fine, doesn't detract at all, just a little annoying to always have to have some comic/light-hearted comment, as it was in The Avengers.
I also thought they overdid Kirk and Spahk's gut/logic debates. It works at times, but sometimes it's just overkill. They brought it to a good close in the end so hopefully in the next films (there better be more) they just let the two be themselves.
Overall, awesome movie. Wish it was a little darker, but for what it tried to be it nailed it. Might see it again tomorrow
