When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it's up to Earth's Mightiest Heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.
Robert Downey Jr.,
On the day of James Kirk's birth, his father dies on his damaged starship in a last stand against a Romulan mining vessel looking for Ambassador Spock, who in this time, has grown on Vulcan disdained by his neighbors for his half-human heritage. 25 years later, James T. Kirk has grown into a young rebellious troublemaker. Challenged by Captain Christopher Pike to realize his potential in Starfleet, he comes to annoy academy instructors like Commander Spock. Suddenly, there is an emergency on Vulcan and the newly-commissioned USS Enterprise is crewed with promising cadets like Nyota Uhura, Hikaru Sulu, Pavel Chekov and even Kirk himself, thanks to Leonard McCoy's medical trickery. Together, this crew will have an adventure in the final frontier where the old legend is altered forever as a new version of the legend begins. Written by

U.S.S. Kelvin, go for Starfleet Base.
Kelvin Crew Member:
Starfleet Base, we've sent you a transmission. Did you receive?
Kelvin, have you double-checked those readings?
Kelvin Crew Member:
Our gravitational sensors are going crazy here. You should see this. It looks like a lightning storm.
What you've sent us doesn't seem possible.
Kelvin Crew Member:
Yes ma'am. I understand. That's why we sent it.

The first part of the closing credits is styled after the opening credits of Star Trek (1966), where the starship Enterprise blasts off into space as a monologue describes its mission, and then the cast names appear as the famous "Star Trek" theme music plays. See more »
Okay, I know there are lots of holes in this review, much like the movie. For example, I'm not even a true adult and it's been 6 years since the release of Star Trek. But a review can't kill anyone, right? And please note that there are spoilers in this review, so watch the movie first and then read this if you haven't seen the movie in advance.
The movie itself was, to be honest, entertaining. Yet, plot holes are scattered all across the script, and I bet it would take a critic to go through a few short lines and immediately trip on one of them. Let me list them all, or at least most of them:
Star Wars's main theme is explosions, shooting, running, explosions, explosions, shooting and death, and I'm sure I mentioned explosions. Star Trek's theme is discovering the universe and its life forms. Now, Sir J.J Abrams turned it into Star Wrek. You try scrolling through the first 10 minutes of the movie. Explosions. Explosions. Death. Shooting protons and phasers. Running crew striving to survive. Explosions. Man down. Death of two captains. All I'm saying is that Star Trek became more militaristic and violent than it originally were in TOS.
Now, let's scroll through the rest of the movie. Unlike the original James T Kirk, this one is a brat, immature and flirty. Yay, what would his mirror version be like? I have a feeling the alternate reality became the mirror universe whilst the mirror universe became the prime reality. What the bloody hell?! (It's made-up)
Okay, so let's talk about the prime antagonist. Nero, a man who is coincidentally named after a Roman Emperor, with 0 logic. For instance, he hates Spock, a man who tried to help his home planet but failed. And did Spock cause the supernova? NOPE. And did Spock denied to help? NOPE. He flew the ship there, with knowledge that a chance for survival is critical if the supernova incinerates his vessel. The man put his life on the edge, to save Romulus. And all the blame points to him? Where's the logic? Oh right, he's just a miner, how could he possibly know that?
And, how is the Narada, a such OP starship, a mining vessel? It took out 47 Klingon warbirds and 7 starships, without minor or none damage visible on the hull. Then, if every single miner in 2387 possessed this ship, then Romulus took over the universe in days.
One of the prime faults of this: the goddamit scale. Example: In TOS and the old movies, it takes hours to travel from one planet to the other at warp speed. Now, you can travel from Earth to Vulcan within 3 minutes, at warp factor 3-4, barely 1/3 of the speed of the starships in the original movies. Space tightened...So now, Vulcan is like four solar systems away. Yay!
That is hellalot of plot holes, and honestly, I cannot list them all. But on the other hand, it is undeniable that the music was incredible, and the new effects and design of the Enterprise is absolutely beautiful, with even more realistic effects. The main problem with the effects is that there are too many "lens flares".
