First things first, the new Star Trek movie by JJ Abrams is fantastic.
Star Trek started as a TV show in 1966 featuring the now legendary Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner. It myst have been a hard task to make a new Star Trek movie, when you think about the legacy it have.
But JJ Abrams, the master mind behind LOST, Alias og Fringe, have solved this task in an excellent. The reboot of Star Trek works real well, and I like it.
The movie starts with the main characters Spock (Zachary Quinto) and James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) as small children. We see them grow up, enlist and join the Starfleet. The crew gets assembled, and goes on a journey where no man have gone before.
This is a sci-fi movie with a lot of action, and its full of humour. This formula works very well. Zachary Quinto plays the role as Spock very well, but it’s great to see Leonard Nimoy appeared and plays the role as the old Spock.
What I found interesting that is was a very grown up crowd at the cinema when I watched the movie. I will guess that most of them was men, 30-40 years old. Interesting.
I think JJ Abrams did a great job with the Star Trek reboot. The movie works great on it own. It also fun to see that they have found people to play the roles in this movie that have a similar face to the original cast of the show.
I highly recommand you to see Star Trek, if you are a trekkie or not.

I found a couple of interviews on IGN.com with JJ Abrams and Leonard Nimoy, among others.
