>.> Is it just me or do these people look like clones of the old cast?
Since it was such a popular show maybe the casts's DNA was stolen and clones were grown in some third world country, specifically reared to make this movie.
I just hope they don't overly "Hollywood-ize" the movie. There was a certain charm to the low budget special effects (not to mention the inability to completely rely on them to keep the audience entertained...). I guess I will find out this weekend.
I don't think the new cast really looks like the old one. Everybody's just a little bit too pretty.
I really liked it, but it did lack the philisophical underpinnings from the show. But I think it was a setup for a new franchise that I hope will get more thematically mature with future installments (that's probably too much to ask though).
Saw it today, and it fucking sucked for an old-school ST and ST:TNG fan like myself. Just a bunch of action sequences spliced together between some ill-conceived and confusing plot (devoid of actual science.) This movie clearly missed the point of Star Trek, which has always been to make a commentary on present-day life. It's not Seinfeld in space, it's a morality play. This movie seemed to have no theme whatsoever. I did, however, think the actors did a fine job.
