Straight to the auction site
Verified purchase
Really appreciated the previous 2 Star Trek movies in this reboot series, although that's my only exposure to Star Trek I've ever had.
This one after 10 minutes turned out too hard to stomach, my wife switched off even sooner.
From what I've seen from it, it was much more of a visual- and fast action-orientated teen flick than a balanced intriguing drama. Too many cheap jokes.
Probably more for younger audiences.

So it went straight on the auction site.

Where possible we buy the 3D version of movies. This movie, despite my disappointment with the movie, the material in 3D looked very crisp and immersing on our fairly high-end OLED screen with proper surround sound.

The set also includes a digital copy. Nice in a sense. But I get very frustrated by the fact that I now have to run 4 different apps from movie studios each filled with their own digital copy format; iTunes, Flixster/Ultraviolet, Googleplay ect. And so far there is no proper way to integrate my collections of digital copies. Moreover, most will require wifi, which is not always available when travelling. Until this is being addressed these digital copies remain a half-baked freebie in support of self-copies.

Every type of intergalactic fantasmagoric crapola crapstick condensed into a same-old same-old formulaic "Let's destroy evil alien HQ ---> evil alien HQ gets destroyed" movie. They even recycled the same evil monster face mask used in every horror flick since 1972, literally the exact same face mask with the flared nostrils, hooked nose and bony face and pointy ears. The exact same CGI used in every CGI film since 2003 too, where monster creature lurches forward and roars as if he's taking an insertion, and he jumps from a great height to land on a rocky surface whilst slamming the floor with his hands to brace himself on landing. It's literally the exact same two CGI sequences used in all films. I'd be amazed if this cost more than $50k to produce and i'm not being sarcastic. It was literally pure recycling of CGI clips and face masks. Also, l know the Spock character is the same as the previous JJ Abrams reboots, but l didn't watch those (lens flares plus they looked crappy), but he looks like a bullying American frat boy, they should call it Bro Trek: The Jock Generation. I hated this film.

Huge downwards slide in quality from the first 2 Pine Star Trek films
Verified purchase
Over the past couple of days I re-watched the first two Star Trek films with Chris Pine as Kirk and both were excellent for a variety of reasons that I mentioned in previous reviews.
This third one is terrible, despite having some of the elements that made the first two so good: a great vision of how the future might look in space brought to life by thoughtful and terrific special effects, decent (not great, but decent) acting from the core cast members, and er...well that's it come to think of it.
This film has three of the things I hate most in big movies that don't work: cutesy (supposedly funny) dialogue at times when the characters are actually facing imminent death (there's a time for this type of dialogue exchange and if you want anyone to believe and/or care in what's going on then the time is not when the characters are facing imminent death); endless 'action scenes' that occur for no real reason and do not add anything to what is happening; and barely drawn subsidiary characters.
So bad was this film in comparison to the previous two that I went back to look at the credits and it seems that my hunch as to what might have gone awry - the writing team - was indeed correct. This film was written by Simon Pegg ('Scotty' in the films) and some other guy who was also the director and not by the two guys who wrote the previous two - Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
This substantial qualitative change in the set up of the three films - and, crucially as well, JJ Abrams not directing it - is clearly the reason why it is so poor compared to the other two. It would also make sense as Simon Pegg - who is a very talented chap, incidentally, in broad terms - is known for writing comedy stuff and he clearly cannot help himself, even when the comedy is in places where it just undermines everything else going on.
Anyhow, that's it, this is rubbish, but the previous two are excellent.

Excellent space opera in 3D, but with a plot full of Hollywood clichés
Verified purchase
I have the "3D" Blu-ray version, and I'll not comment on the film other than to say that it is pretty much as one might expect from the Amazon blurb and the surrounding hype; superb graphics and effects on both the "2D" and the "3D" versions, but lumbered with a plot shot through with the usual clichéd Hollywood holes.

The prime characters are surprisingly good replicas of the original Kirk, Spock, Scotty and Bones translated to JJ Abrams' alternative Star Trek universe, with some interesting new ones, and given that major change I suspended any critical mental acuity, carefully forgot forty years of previous Star Trek memories, and simply enjoyed the high action film.

With a simple [[ASIN:B00BKWBL8C Samsung BD-F5500]] and a proper “3D” HD TV the "3D" on this Star Trek disc was superb. Played out at 1080p 24fps, as 2.40:1 on a 16:9 screen the motion was smooth with no flicker or watery blurring (unlike the beginning of the Hobbit which was so bad we eventually watched in only 2D). The surround sound was excellent on my [[ASIN:B004MY4PU6 Logitech Z906]] system

As with the earlier Abrams “3D” we again noticed the occasional foreground "reflections" as if off the inside of a window or the dirt on the surface of the lens, but less so. I think this was a useful optical trick to ensure our eyes were not strained by excessive changes of focus; certainly none of us had headaches at the end of this film (unlike with some other “3D”).

The second ("2D") disc in the Blu-ray set plays perfectly well as normal HD also with the full surround sound, and all the listed extras for this specific edition from Az are available. (Why offer different extras on different editions from different vendors? Other reviews have been very helpful in giving us the lists of other extras on other editions.)

Extras included on my 2016 Blu-ray discs bought from Az in April 2018. (~ 1 hour).
. Deleted Scenes
. Beyond the darkness: story origins
. Enterprise takedown: destroying an icon
. Trekking in the desert: on location in Dubai
. To live long and prosper: 50 years of Star Trek
. For Leonard and Anton

I've not bothered even thinking about the Digital Copy - what is the point when there is a high quality hard-copy in your hand? And then it requires iTunes and on my sample the license expired on 18th Nov 2018.

Why only just squeezing into 4 stars? Well, it is not an outstanding film, not something one will revisit time after time in years to come, just a thoroughly enjoyable romp for the teenager hidden in all of us, but alas also a film all too easily forgotten.

Stop. Jumping. About. So. Much.
Verified purchase
Can someone buy the camera crew a tripod or boom or whatever? And a decent fast-focus camera. And a course on film making maybe?

While I understand tricks like camera shake, motion blur, sliding cuts, and jump cuts have a place in building the tension, action, and making some scenes possible, 30 minutes in I had a headache and felt like that's pretty much all I'd 'seen' for the last 25 minutes. And all action sequences are the same.

Plot? No comment. I wasn't expecting much, and that's exactly what I got.

SFX? Well, as far as I can tell, they are good. For about 3 seconds at a time until it cuts to something else.

Seriously, this is a 2hr film. Slow down a little and let us actually _watch_ something.

Even the 'static' shots wobble, or wave in and out of focus. I've seen more professional, clearer filmed YouTube videos.

Edit: A few bits are slightly better. Sometimes with steady, in focus shots lasting almost 20s. Or slow pans. But the damage has already been done. And keeps being done again every time a nauseous action scene starts.

Mis-Leading as Digital Download is only for iTunes
Verified purchase
The description of this product is very misleading as you only get the digital download for mobile devices, if you use Apple or a Windows Tablet that will run iTunes. If you have android device or wish to use UV then you are out of luck, otherwise the film is brilliant - i have deducted 1 star due to the digital download issue

Time passes
Verified purchase
I initially clicked on this movies by mistake and was unable to cancel the viewing purchase. Amazon should make it easier/more straightforward to cancel purchases (especially those on rental which are paid for straight away).
In the event, I decided that I would make an attempt at setting aside the time to watch a movie that neither my wife, nor I, were vaguely interested in. Its franchise is essentially one for younger viewers who have followed with interest the movie series, not to mention dabbling with all the paraphenalia linked with this form of entertainment.
Notwithstanding, the time available to watch the movie ran out - hence the title of this review is a bit like the rental time, or even the nature of the movie.

Good Star Trek movie
Verified purchase
Good Star Trek movie, but the UHD-BD did not wow me. I could see little difference to the 1080p BD. I used a Panasonic UB900 4k player to an LG 55 imperial inches (whatever that is in ordinary cms?) 4k television using HDMI quality cables. Is this UHD thing oversold? Little upgrade for considerable expense. The UHD disks are £25 each - much too expensive!! Also this disk bought in September 2016 had to wait until January 2017 for me to acquire the 4k player, only to find the disk hesitates and sticks and shudders at the seventh chapter. Now it is too late to exchange the disk. The disk was faulty, Mr.Amazon and now I'm stuck with it. Bad experience for my first 4k home movie!
