I really didn't think I would like this movie. I mean, it's Star Trek! I thought it would be like Star Wars-- really long, boring, and way too far-fetched for my liking. But I liked it! A lot! It was funny, which I really didn't expect. I've never seen anything Star Trek before this, so I don't know much about the characters, but I think the casting was really good. The effects were great, which was good otherwise I wouldn't have been able to sit through the whole thing.
I didn't really know what it was about before I saw it. All I knew was it was about space travel and their ship had a teleporter. If it hadn't been about the origins of the main characters, I probably would have been totally lost and not liked it. But the story was great. It was interesting and easy to follow.
This movie was good, definitely worth seeing whether you're a Star Trek fan or not.
