Trivia

During the first shot of Khan running through the city streets after having crashed the USS Vengeance (right before Spock is beamed down in pursuit), you can hear the sound of sirens of what seem to be emergency responders arriving to the scene (off screen). The sound effect used is the same as the sound effect for the police hovercrafts in Minority Report (2002), which is directed by Steven Spielberg and is also set in the future. J.J. Abrams is a known Spielberg fan. See more »

Goofs

Spock chases Khan into a large building, where Khan leaps through a glass wall, and Spock follows. In the next shot, they are back on the street. See more »

J.J. Doesn't Get It
7 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know I'll sound like an old guy, but J.J. Abrams just doesn't get Star Trek. Maybe that's just fine because he is searching for a new and younger audience that probably doesn't get Star Trek either.

Star Trek was never about the special effects or action. Most of the best Trek stories from all of the television shows (TOS through Enterprise) didn't rely on either. Action and special effects were always there, but they were used to tell a story instead of becoming the story.

To be fair, there is one thing to like about the new Star Trek reboot. The cast is great, and it is easy to see the original actors through them. After that, I'm over this thing. It is just an action movie series using Star Trek's name to sell tickets.

If you think this is great science fiction in the Star Trek universe, then enjoy it. If you are looking for something more and want to really understand what Star Trek is about then queue up "Measure of a Man" from TNG, just one of many classic Star Trek episodes that expose this new "reboot" for the sham that it is. Gene Roddenberry would be ashamed.
