Shaky Cam and CGI delivers anothern modern blockbuster. The tense music, the shaky camera and the fast cuts/editing shouts at me: Look! These action sequences are amazing. I don't feel it in my heart though. Looks and feels like it tries to manipulate me. Hard to get into. I would like to submerge myself in this story - parts of it is really intriguing - but the action is as usual a big turn off. Strange how they put so much emphasize on the action, considering Star Trek is all about ideas and characters - which used to be more appealing. 7 years ago
Overproduced, oversaturated garbage. A bunch of yelling and emotional urgency with no substance. This is a movie produced soley for Apple, Google, Facebook employees and the rest of the tech/Silicon valley industry, Will Wheaton worshipping, Call of Duty/Mass Effect generation. Designed with the products they make, virally talked (advertised) about with the networks they run. It's a product, nothing more. A turd with diamonds sprinkled on it. Its a movie in the same sense that Fox News is news.
Cumberbach had several great scenes though.
