The idea of a second installment of a JJ Trek is just sickening.
The first one had plot holes bigger than a the Romulan Empire itself. There were more wooden actors than you could shake a William Shatner at, and
whilst the special effects were amazing, they ruined the bloody ship. Not to mention the lens flares and CONSTANT camera pans/tilts/shakes/zooms made
everyone in the room feel sick.
What happened to telling a good story, without the need for sickening dialogue, sugarcoated special effects, and cheap jokes that aren't funny.
Sock "prime" (as he's now known), suddenly disregarded the Prime Directive, and the Temporal Prime Directive, by interfering in the time line.
Nero waited around the galaxy for TWENTY years before deciding to take revenge upon the Federation. What bad guy, in their right mind, with superior
firepower, weapons and knowledge from the future, hangs around for TWENTY years before deciding to have his revenge.
Surely it would have been better for him to head straight to Romulus, give them detailed knowledge of the future, and attack the Federation that way.
Then he'd have been assured that Romulus wouldn't have been destroyed. The weapons on his ship were much more advanced than anything in the
Federation fleet, so just hand those over, and kick butt.... instead he hangs around, twiddling his thumbs. Presumably his crew do the same. Perhaps
they had a few bowls of soup whilst they waited too!
It was a bad story, badly told, with quite a few crap actors.
I'm not paying anything to go and see the next one. Sadly though, it's likely to be a box office smash, because people don't appreciate real
stories any more, they've prostituted themselves to special effects and lens flares.
