Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As 'Fun, Watchable'

The only thing missing from the pitch perfect new Star Trek film is a strong soundtrack. The actors have been brilliantly cast and Zachary Quinto as Spock steals the show. The theaters in Georgetown last night were packed, and not by your typical Trekkie crowd. It looked like the film had broad demographic appeal. Expect Star Trek to make more than $70 million this weekend, tops for the eleven film series.

Still, as the news clip above indicates, hardliner Trek fans are apparently disappointed that the newest version lacks a heavy handed message about tolerance, that it avoids stiff acting, that the storyline makes sense, and that the film features young, attractive people.
