Star Trek XI Reviews

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Star Trek XI has released and the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive.

At Rotten Tomatoes, Star Trek XI has a 96% positive rating with reviews coming from magazine, newspaper and website critics. (Spoilers ahead)

Reporting from Time Magazine, Mary Pols claims that “The New Star Trek Movie: It Will Leave Fans Beaming.” Pols begins by saying that “After 43 years, our relationship with the franchise had grown so familiar and worn that we’d quietly moved into separate bedrooms. If we’d had the energy, we might have signed divorce papers. Nonetheless, every few years, the Franchise put on a new outfit and twirled around hopefully. This usually won it some new admirers, although those of us who remembered the deep past most fondly were less enamored of its new permutations. We wished the Franchise no ill will, but at the same time we occasionally thought: Give it a rest, darling, you’re showing your age.”

Thumbs Up For Star Trek XI

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Early reviews are coming in, and Star Trek XI is generating both excitement and positive reviews ahead of its May 8th general release.

The most recent review, from The Hollywood Reporter, claimed that “Putting a much-loved but over-the-hill vehicle back in shape takes more than a new battery and a lick of paint. It demands a full-bore refit.” According to reviewer Ray Bennett, “that’s exactly what J.J. Abrams has given Star Trek. J.J. Abrams gives the Starship Enterprise all it’s got, and it’s more than enough.”

Note that clicking through to the actual reviews will reveal spoilers.
