When the news that a revamp of Star Trek was coming out I was skeptical. But, what a revamp does have going for it was that Star Trek never took itself too seriously. I thought there was plenty to like in this movie. There was enough of the hokey sentiment, and the essence of most characters was retained and the fun of seeing how it all got started. However, having seen it on DVD I am afraid that most of the special effects were lost. As a matter of fact, when most of the battle scenes were occurring I just got bored and would wander away. As much as I like Simon Pegg, I didn't like the character of Scotty, just too slap-stick like; might as well have used Craig Ferguson for that sort of humor. Although I did develop a little crush on Bones, so it has that going for it. The full storyline didn't quite gel for me, and just blowing the bad guy to bits was soooo not Star Trek. All in all, it kept the essence of Star Trek and that is the most important thing and hopefully in any new movies they can correct these mistakes.
