The last time i checked,INDIGENOUS people are people of color only in real life period.According to this movie they are Caucasians though.Therefore,this latest and totally unnecessary Star Trek movie remake makes the entire Star Trek series of TV shows and movies more RACIST now than ever before period,BUT I DIGRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good movie. I am always impressed with the how the actors fit their characters so well. One major thing I would have liked to have seen was more exploration of planets... too much crashing into earth's skyscrapers. If there is a third movie, I how that the director/producer keeps that in mind. I also agree that I was disappointed that there was no bonus features, there were some on the first DVD.

Such a good movie, better than the one before it.

I first saw this one when it was in the Theaters, but I watched it again. The only thing I noticed is that there were no "Bonus Features" on this Dvd version of it and I had thought that if there were it would have added to my enjoyment. Oh well.

Rotten Tomatoes gave it an 87 (audience a 90). Sorry, I thought it was terrible. What are they thinking? Captain Christopher Pike is alive and living on Talos IV. (from the pilot episode of the franchise!) -yet they kill him in this prequel?? So now we accept that the past is flexible (apparently it is anyway). And then we have Kahn. In this parallel universe, Kahn is discovered by the Federation - not the Enterprise (as history tells us) and how is Kirk going to meet up with Kahn in the future? Can't be the way he did in the past. Apart from the destruction of a glorious history, the movie is just so much shooting and really stupid special effects. How can a warp drive be fixed by kicking it??? Why are there so many pipes and catwalks and water tank like structures inside the ship. Can't they just modernize it into a nice little box. Nuff said, can't really recommend it, especially for true fans.

In my opinion THE best STAR TREK movie to come along in a long time. Absolutely held my interest for the whole movie. Benedict Cumberbach makes a formidable Khan, and I love the action that is throughout. This movie also shows how vicious a Vulcan can fight when angered. Granted, I've enjoyed the STAR TREK series, albeit the greater emphasis on dialogue as opposed to the action, however, this latest entry is of the opposite spectrum making the action the central focalpoint of the story.

just wondering, but does this movie stand alone? I haven't watched any Star Trek movies or television series, but have recently gotten into sci-fi since the special effects nowadays are so good. I don't want to get it and not understand the storyline.

See it if you want to suspend your disbelief beyond all reason and see basic laws of physics entirely disregarded! :) It's not even good as escapism. Such a disappointing turn has the Star Trek voyage taken with these young-uns at the helm. The Star Trek film with the whales (back a year or 25) - that was fun and, compared to this thing, high art! This was even worse than the first go 'round with the new teen crew.

As just a movie, this was pretty fantastic, but for a TOS Trekkie like myself honestly it just didn't do it for me. As a sequel to the 2009 I suppose it was fine but as a remake... just... no. I personally am a big fan of Benedict Cumberbatch but casting him as an originally Indian character was just not a good move, as many people have already mentioned (why am I even commenting a year after this came out?). Anyhow... yeah, as a Trekkie the "my name is Khan" moment was just unexpected in a bad way, and for people who haven't watched the Wrath of Khan, it probably didn't mean anything. I did enjoy Benedict's acting, but over all the casting choice was... not great. Also far too many awkward references to Wrath that just didn't work for me. But as I said above, it was a good movie. Just not a good remake.

Spock: "...Dr. McCoy, you inadvertently activated a torpedo; could you replicate the process?" Bones: "Why the hell would I wanna do that?" Spock: "Can you or can you not?" Bones: "Dammit, man, I'm a doctor, not a torpedo technician!"
