the new movie is horrible.
Silly illogical senseless movie for the transformer's loving teenie crowd. Terrible plot. Lame action in the second half.
Transformers was fun, I admit it. This one wasn't.
The whole explanation how and why things happen is just plain illogical, impossible, artificial and WRONG.
And when the action isn't fun anymore, nothing can save the movie.
And so many moments which are just not Trek. For example:
Making fun of Russians, Chekov is presented as a clownish nerd with an acent so bad the computer can't understand his voice commands. Indeed, that's understanding among nations.
Throwing Kirk (he's not Captain at this point) of the ship with a kick in the ass aka the escape pod because of mutiny above a planet full of monsters. THIS IS STAR TREK! Hell, why not exectue him right away?
It's just a terrible plot device to move the story. Up to this point, the movie was okay, everything after that is ****.
The good: The actors of Kirk, Spock, Uhura and best Mccoy (it's Karl Urban) are superb.
Eric Bana is also great as the villian. Saddly, that's the only good thing about the villian, even he can't turn the tide, this character comes right from "bad idea hell", not to mention the above mentioned illogical and impossible explanation of his motives.
And the finale is boring as hell.
