And so it begins again. This struck me as the best entry in the set since 1980, at least in part because it’s an eerily familiar reheat of the story and characters from the 1977 original. However, the series seems to be in good hands with J.J. Abrams rather than George Lucas at the helm. The effects are impressive, and the cast and script are also good. After what Abrams did to the Star Trek franchise, this was a welcome relief. Worth seeing.
