Star Trek Movie Review

Holy shiitake mushrooms, as ActionFlickChick would say. This movie takes off fast and never lets up! Star Trek begins with action and tension, as a mysterious and powerful ship containing technology and weaponry that has never been seen before, meets George Kirk and his ship the USS Kelvin. What happens next will set events in motion that will alter lives and worlds forever.

If you have the chance I highly recommend that you read IDW’s four part prequel comics Star Trek Countdown before watching this movie. These books will catch you up on all the events leading up to the opening of the film. Read the rest of this entry ?
