(2009) Exhilarating prequel to the Star Trek franchise as the youthful rabble-rousing James Tiberius Kirk (Chris Pine) forgoes his delinquent ways to join the crew of the Starship Enterprise -- including Leonard “Bones” McCoy (Karl Urban), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Sulu (James Cho), and Chekhov (Anton Yelchin) -- where he soon clashes with rival Spock (Zachary Quinto) until they unite against the vengeful Romulan Nero (Eric Bana), intent on destruction. Director J.J. Abrams breathes new life into the series by skillfully balancing the well-executed action sequences with an absorbing human story, leavened with humor and optimism, and likable characters you care about, though some brief gratuitous sexuality and the use of several expletives restrict this to mature teens and up. Intense, but not graphic action violence, a short but frisky bedroom scene with skimpy attire, some crude language, and a single profanity. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) AMC (cable)
