I’ve liked the movie. It was fun.

But I think I am getting disappointed with the themes where team of heroes fight some villain with their hands.

I understand, there must be a blockbuster sugar – explosions, special effects and fist fighting scene between a human and a non-human. To make the opening weekend. But doesn’t it getting old?

Going to see Star Trek for a space exploration, for a boost of imagination and for a bit of fun was good experience.

But what I’ve missed is some reflection on existence in the space. Something deeper than a beginning monologue of captain Kirk.

What I also missed is some speculation on forces bigger than humanity. What was that weapon – besides some ‘ancient’ weapon? What could it be and where it came from? Shouldn’t it start a storm in the imagination? I would love to see that storm¬†flashed out in a movie.

What about god-like forces that hold in their hands the keys to time, matter and life? Did they create the ‘ancient’ weapon? Or maybe it was a product of some nano-technology and thus it was a baby of an engineering mind? Why not go there, into the deep space of ¬†all possible narrative options and explore?

It is Star Trek, it can be done!

P.S. My favorite sci-fi movie of the recent days is still Prometheus. Amazing, deep, beautiful. I want to watch it again now.
