Decent despite that its an almost carbon copy of the new Star Trek (2009) with Chris Pine. Loved seeing the old guys go back into service. Found it unreal a congressman or senator would support the dude becoming a commissioned officer after robbery for a burrito. The ten years laters it would take to reach Lt Cmdr and he's still not changed much. Not moving and being still to avoid aliens becoming agressive reminds of the Borg in TNG.

I forgot to point when Lt Cmdr assumed command as Captain he offered his seat to the Japanese Captain. Thats was bogus to permit a Captain of foreign nation to sit in the command seat of a US Naval vessel.

Ya. However Japan is a nation of honor. The captain thought outside the box. (this is what saved the world..thinking outside the box) This was his style. I thought it was a good point. Rules are there for a good reason but often a good reason comes into play that makes the rules a bad idea. I see this stuff at my work all the time. A judgement call the right one at the time..is why humans will beat out logical by the rules everytime.

When God gave us the Law. He knew we couldn't live up to it. Yet we had to learn and still learn it day by day. Man loves law we just can't live up to it. GRIN!

I view battleship as humans were bad guys. Aliens acted like US Marines with a code of conduct and rules of engagement while on a recon mission. Whose to say when they don't report back that the peaceful aliens will become vengeful and send in an assault team.

I wouldn't call the aliens peaceful. They did respect human life one on one..but that was it. The rest of it was kill and destroy in mass quanities. If they were peaceful and were coming to say hi they wouldn't have come in as they did.

Now you see how we (USA) look coming into the backyards of other countries? They didn't attack military threats till provoked. Several reviewers noticed they followed same rules our military does.

I thought the guy that reviewed it was a pinhead. GRIN! He had some really squewed thoughts as far as I was concerned.

We don't go into a country with out diplomatic means being exhausted first. So I don't see the aliens like a military move. I saw them as a conquering force that had no time for the current population. Very simular to Independence Day in that respect. They didn't really fear us as they thougth they had the upper hand on us weapons wise. They were going to take what we had regardless of what we thought or did.

I am glad we kicked but by using unconventional means. Thinking outside the box was a main point of this movie.

That pinhead wasn't the only reviewer to come to that conclusion. If it was ID4 a small fleet like that was pretty light. It was more like a recon special ops team sent to investigate. Why not kill every human being? I don't believe we always exhaust diplomacy first before inserting into a country. I'm sure there are many classified missions where we've gone into places we'll never hear about.

I watched it again last night. I really enjoy the thinking outside the box stuff. It has all kinds of heart in it. The frog people are pretty wierd for sure. I can't figure them out at all. GRIN!

The charecter and the loyality and the honor and failings of man are all in there. That is the part I really liked. I love a movie where the down and out rise above the situation and win.

The new JJ Abrams reboot. Plainly called "Star Trek" released in 2009 with a whole cast playing the TOS characters. Chris Pine is Kirk and Zachary Quinto is Spock and Zoe Saldana is Uhura. Basically our Spock call him Spock prime and a Romulan get thrown through a black hole which goes back in time to 2233 the birth of Kirk. Nero mucks up history quite a bit so goes the explanation why this parallel reality is similar but different. They treat Kirk's birth like the birth of Christ. The universe seems to autocorrect itself as much as possible and brought and brings the crew together. Star Trek Into Darkness is a remake of The Wrath of Khan with some different twist. The next one set in the new universe is supposed to include Shatner as Kirk prime along with Nimoy as Spock prime.
