Salam and hello all. It was a long time I’m not writing movie reviews about the currently showing movies and now I think I want to write about it a bit. So for this time, I want to write a short movie review about one of currently showing movie right now, Star Trek: The Future Begins. I noticed about this sci-fi movie when I watched the trailer of this movie for the first time about month ago and I was looking forward to watch it since for a long time we have not watched this kind of sci-fi movie. Well, I mean a movie about a war in space which involves high-tech spaceships, laser weapons, etc. If we look back a few years ago, this movie originated from a tv series of Star Trek which at that time was quite popular. Anyway, it was not my favourite tv series though.
Some people maybe can accept this kind of sci-fi movie and maybe some are not. Anyway, I am the one that “maybe” can’t accept this kind of movie. Well, that was my first expectation before I step in into the cinema. Since my friend asked me to accompany him and watch this movie so, I just agreed with it. My first expectation was, this movie may not suit with me and I may be can’t accept this movie. Ok, leave my expectation for a while and let’s have some introduction for this movie. So, watch the trailer below for some brief intro about what this movie is all about.
Ok, have you finish watch the movie trailer of Star Trek: The Future Begins above? Ok, I would say, some of you will not be interested to watch this movie after you watch the trailer. It is the same with me before, but it’s okay. Please proceed your reading. I’ll going to explain to you why this movie is worth to watch.
Before I start, let’s have some synopsis about Star Trek: The Future Begins. Click only if you dare to click because it might contains spoilers. Hoho. Click here for synopsis.
When I watched the trailer for the first time, I think this movie might be likely Star Wars which I can’t accept at all. Sorry for Star Wars fans out there, I didn’t mean to insult you, but really, I can’t accept it. I know Star Wars movie series were a great series of movie, but maybe it just not suit me.
So, here is the short movie review about Star Trek: The Future Begins. The movie started at space which then continued with war scene between U.S.S Kelvin and Romulan. This awesome show of war scene at space with special effects and CGI at the beginning of the movie really impressed me a lot. The director and plot writer of this movie really have done a good job on attracting the audience attention at the beginning of the movie. And from my opinion, it was great. My first thought was, this attention-catch scene might just for the beginning, but I was wrong. The director has brilliantly composed a good plot to make sure this 2 hours 10 minutes movie wouldn’t get the audience boring with all those sci-fi elements, some physic and science theories that I can’t understand, “trans-warp” theory, “teleporting”, etc. And what the director did was, put some humor elements in the movie. Hey, include some humor element inside sci-fi movie is not a bad idea though because if these scenes were not there, I think I might end up sleeping inside the cinema. Hahaha.
Another first expectation before I watch this movie was, I might not understand the movie because I’m not fans of this Star Trek tv series and I already forgot what this tv series is all about. The reason maybe because I get confused with Star Gate. Hoho. This is really off topic. Ok, back to the review. But, my expectation went wrong again! Even I already forgot about the tv series of Star Trek and get confused with Star Gate, it doesn’t mean that I’ll end up understand nothing about this movie, no. The movie plot has been composed really well in this 2 hours 10 minutes movie and the director has used this long duration of time to story about the movie from the very beginning until the end, in details as possible. So, as the conclusion, it’ll not get you lost even if you have never watched the tv series of Star Trek before. Great, huh?
Another part that should be highlighted are CGI and special effects that have been used in this movie. Totally awesome. You can see how well the spaceships have been built and generated using CGI and the details when the spaceships were destroyed and exploded. You should watch it and you’ll know what I meant. It won’t disappoint you and I can guarantee it.
So, that’s what I want to say about this movie. Do you think this is a short movie review? Hehe. Ok, maybe I have dragged it a bit long, but anyway, as a conclusion, I rated this movie 5 out of 5, based on the well planned movie plot, CGI and special effects that have been used in this movie. I won’t comment on the acting part since I think all actors and actress have done a good job to make sure this movie is a success. So, how would you say about this movie? Have you watched it? If you have some words about this movie, may you share it here? Leave it at the comment section below and I would really appreciate hearing your opinion. Thank you.
p/s: Pay RM10 for 2 hours 10 minutes with so many wow elements, I think it is a worth movie to watch right now.
