I decided to watch this film because I wanted to watch something new and this was the first Star Trek film with Captain Kirk I've seen. I was also drawn in by the trailers which were not as good as the film because the film was brilliant.
This film is part of the Star Trek film series including 12 films which started in 1979 and still continues. There was also a tv series called Star Trek in 1966 which had 726 episodes in it.
The main actors and actresses in this film are Chris Pine (Captain James T. Kirk), Zackary Quinto (Commander Spock), Karl Urban (Dr Bones McCoy), Simon Pegg (Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott), Idris Elba (Krall) and Sofia Boutella (Jaylah).
The story of this film is that the Enterprise crew crash land on a planet after a failure of a battle against Krall, who is searching for a special object so he can destroy everyone. Most of the Enterprise crew are captured but the ones that are not, work along side Jaylah (a rebellious civilian).
I think that the best things in the film were the action scenes because they kept me satisfied during the film while also make my hair stand on end at the drastic parts. Secondly I liked the plot because it was amazing and they kept to it very well.
The only thing which was not very good was that I thought the film went on too long, and it was a little scary because even I was scared and trust me I'm not easily scared!
I would recommend this film to adults, people who like action films, people who like Star Trek films and courageous teenagers.
I give this film a 8.9/10 because it was a little too scary, and it was a bit too long to get a 10 from me.
