Way better than ST2 and ST3, though still have distance to ST1, 16 August 2012
Author: daozhongbuer from Perth

I've been quite against of watching any new ST movies in recent years, because both ST2 and ST3 are really unsatisfactory for me. However after watching this movie, I have the feeling the ST movies have started going back to the right track.

Firstly, the movie has found the right audience. It's a movie for a simple story, a small incidence in the ST universe, not for deep philosophy. However, you have to admit that if the story writer can really put a little bit of philosophical ideas from the original novel into conversations and the environment around characters, just like the ST1 did, this new movie will be on a new level. And that's why ST1 is always way ahead of other ST movies. For the story, I give 7/10, with 3 marks off for the absence of in-depth philosophical ideas.

And then, I like the design of weapons and ships and many tiny concept things. This includes very careful design of a fleet of starships that follows the style of ST1. Other things like the suit of mobile infantry. Weapon designs. Airdrop of mechanized MI. Main guns of the space station. I should say I have seen the shadows of the original novel, and you can tell the designer have really put a lot of effort to making these things look comfortable, and surely it's just very fun to watch how these men's stuffs to work in the movie. For the artistic design, I give 9/10, with one mark off for the illogical uselessness of the protection ability of the MI armor.

In terms of the characters, everybody is poker-face. There is no room for showing the personality. There is also not enough conflict between characters as well. A good movie has to have conflict between characters, that's why Alien and Star Wars is epic. I can only give this part 5/10.

Therefore, if you are looking for a simple, straight forward movie, with cool graphic and awesome boy stuff. You should watch this movie. If you want to see some philosophical content, then you better wait for the next ST movie, not this one.
