Star Crap: Into Moral Darkness
16 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spoilers Ahead:

Let's start with ethics 101: Is it moral to save your little baby to kill say 50 people who did you no harm? Have the screenwriters ever even had an ethics class? Maybe it is because he has such a cute baby? The whole work has moments of utter ethical retardation that drew gasps of awe from me. Yes, Pine's Kirk says YOU ARE A MURDERER. I am sorry; please forgive me I started laughing loudly drawing angry stares from other patrons. Yes, uh, excuse me Kirk? What were you just doing on Kronos? What with that fifteen minute orgasmic blood lust kill festival highlighted by you yelling like some cannibal atavist at a missionary cook in? Jim, uh, you cannot kill say eight Klingon's yelling and screaming with glee and then lecture people on their morality.

First, I detest Star Trek; let's get that out of the way. I grew up with the films; there was nothing funnier for my friends and I then to go see Star Trek 3: The Search for Harve Bennett's Brain and laugh our asses off at the fruits dressed up in the outfits. Hey, get laid please, it is a TV show; give us all a break. That said, this is not Star Trek. Look, did we need Khan stomping on a woman's knee while she screams in agony? How about skull crushings? I do not know about you; I just do not remember a lot of skull crushings while Patrick Stewart put us all to sleep with his 3rd grade ethics in Insurrection? Sorry, Jean Fluke 150 people cannot have something that would help billions please pick up some ethics books before you give that head another coat of sheen?

Yes, the usual items that say J.J. Abrams: yelling, spitting, screaming, knee stomping, skull crushing, peek a boo semi nudity non stop explosions kung fu shootings and stabbings bring the whole family. Hey, maybe this is why we cannot go out of our houses at night, you think? When did the paragon of rationality SPOCK turn into RAMBO? Was that him on top of that airship snapping Khan's arm over his shoulder? How about beating a prone man like a berserker? Has Abrams even seen a Star Trek film? Look, the one were they pick up the whales is drop dead funny; I do not mean that in a complimentary way. This is supposed to be humanistic: hello, you know how savage, murdering maniacs were all having bad days at Auschwitz, Stalin's purges and Mao's Great Leap Forward. Misanthropes like me always make a hand gesture I cannot share with you when we say Star Trek; but, hey, it makes them feel better. This is not Star Trek.

Great reviewers have pointed out the plot canyons like, do not kill Khan Spock we need his super blood to save Jim. Gee, how about the other 63 torpedoes containing his mass killing maniacs? Did inertia cause the ship to drift in sub light thruster speed from the moon to earth's orbit? That is a little ways? Look, Nicholas Meyer was no Stanley Kubrick but let's leave his movie alone? If you are going to steal the death scene from the only watchable film in the Star Trek library, try to imitate it well. Please do not have the Icon of the 60's Kirk crying like a little girlie? Yes, I know we are all supposed to be castrates, I am sorry, sensitive or we offend our wonderful feminine friends. You crapped all over Kirk. Roddenberry would sue if he were alive I assure you. Yes, I laughed to at Ricardo's oiled up pec's in Wrath Of Khan too; please, leave other peoples' works alone?

The lack of character development is breathtaking; the non stop violence put me to sleep. Like Man of Steel, these imbeciles need to have constant violence to awaken them from their lobotomized comas. I am learning to stuff cotton in my ears before one of their films. What Abrams did to Star Trek cannot be written I refer readers to the South Park episode showing what Spielberg and Lucas did to Indiana Jones with that Crystal Skull piece of crap. Good going, hey really life affirming J J? I really felt that Roddenberry feeling; maybe we are not all murderous, self destroying maniacs? I had this epiphany right when Khan was skull crushing poor admiral Marcus. BRING THE KIDS
