I absolutely liked the original Star Trek series, even though I haven't complete it yet, but I had not seen this film. So I indulge myself with this first film in honor of Star Trek's 50th anniversary. It's definitely just like the original series but on a much more bigger scale and budget. You have your familiar characters Kirk and Spock, Sulu. The slow pacing gives it a grand monumental feel that allows the viewer to appreciate the set designs and directing style. It reminded me of something from Ridley Scott and older classic films like Time Bandits (1981) and Fantastic Voyage (1966). Every word that comes out of McCoy's mouth just cracks me up. His character adds comic relief to the dialogue. After this, I now want to continue where I left off on the series and catch up on the rest of the series.
