Star Trek (2009) Blu-ray Movie Review

Star Trek 2009 Blu-ray Movie Review
Star Trek (2009) Blu-ray Movie
I grew up with the Star Trek franchise. That is, with Captain Kirk, Spock and the rest of the crew of the Starship Enterprise. Star Trek was a series that our family watched once a week and, when the series was over, we watched the episodes in reruns for many years so there was no question that I would be going to see the movie when it was released in 2009.

Guess what? I loved it. As a matter of fact, when I left the movie theatre, I proclaimed it, "THE BEST MOVIE THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN." Pretty strong words, don’t you think? I have no idea if that is the truth or not, but that was definitely how I was feeling about that movie at that moment. It was packed with action and adventure and even some emotion. It had funny moments and insider references, good acting and a great storyline. I loved the movie and when the Blu-ray version was released, I loved it, too.

But don’t take my word for it…

The Movie Plot in 100-ish Words

Star Trek (2009) is both a prequel and a reboot. A movie for Star Trek fans and for those who have never seen a single Star Trek movie, this movie documents the maiden voyage of a spaceship, the U.S.S. Enterprise. It features new crew members who attempt to stop an evil entity that threatens all of mankind. James Kirk is an impulsive Iowa farm boy and Spock a logical man who throws off emotion. Their partnership is unlikely but their clash of instinct and reason proves powerful enough to guide us all through their mission, taking us "boldly where no one has gone before."

The Movie Reviews

The Amazon customer reviews about the movie itself are complimentary. Writer D. Ferrari said that this movie really felt like Star Trek to him. He said it has the attitude he expected. Reviewer Konrad Kern said that you will love this movie regardless of whether you are a Trekkie fan.

Buy the Star Trek Blu-ray Gift Set with Badges
DVD Talk said, "Star Trek offers nothing but pleasures to those in tune with Gene Roddenberry's original creation and provides ample comfort to newcomers who should immediately set aside anticipated Trekkie bias and suit up with Starfleet...The film provides 120 minutes of unrelenting goose bumps..."

The Movie Mom said that audiences “should be set to stun with this splendid reboot of the 40-plus year old Star Trek series. By boldly going where many, many have gone before, J.J. Abrams of television's Lost and Alias has managed to make a thoroughly entertaining film.”

I agree.

The Blu-ray Reviews

The HDR Room said, "J.J. Abrams brought back the voyages of the Star Trek Enterprise...Paramount ensured the Blu-ray presentation is befitting the film...non-fluffy bonus material, sharp video and audio that reaches levels of perfection few discs have before.”

Star Trek Blu-ray Boxed Set with Model
Star Trek Blu-ray Boxed Set with Model said that the Blu-ray release “features impeccable picture and sound quality and a complete, thoroughly informative and consistently entertaining supplemental package.” They went on to give it their HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

One Amazon customer said, “You will be letting yourself down if you like Star Trek, have a Blu-ray player but don't buy this movie" and, once again, I agree.

There are some pretty interesting boxed sets that include this movie available any of which would make a great gift idea for the Trekkie who does not already own this movie on Blu-ray disc. Of course, the longer a special boxed set like the ones shown here with the U.S.S. Enterprise replica metal model or with the collectible badges has been around, the harder to find and the more expensive they become. If you are interested, you can click on any of the the pictures shown of the boxed sets to go directly to that item on Amazon or you can find the ordinary Star Trek blu-ray movie release by clicking here. If you are interested in adding this movie to your collection, you will be interested to learn that the stand alone blu-ray version retails for less than $10.
