Star Trek Lands In London

The Star Trek enterprise is back in business. British critics (the latest sequel premiered in London Monday night) and U.S. trade reviewers have greeted it with rapturous applause. In the Times , Debra Craine called the film "stunning" and observed "Without sacrificing the majesty of Gene Roddenberry's humanitarian ideals or the humor that is Star Trek 's salvation, Abrams's film is a rollicking space adventure that makes you fall in love with the original series all over again." In the Telegraph, Mark Monahan noted that it's "a big, long, glossy film. But it's also playful, irreverent and light on its feet, and it knows exactly when to leaven the universe-rescuing with a nice nugget of humor." Writing in the Guardian , Phil Hoad hailed the performances of the stars, concluding "Combined, they, and this new voyage, have real optimistic force and uplift." In the Mail , Chris Tookey compared the movie to the sudden international stardom of a certain Scottish spinster. "The entertainment business thrives on surprises, as has been proven once again by the sudden elevation to stardom of Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent ," he wrote. "And there has been no bigger surprise for me this year than this movie." And in the Hollywood Reporter, Ray Bennett predicted "The box office should beam up enormous returns when the film opens on May 7."
