Mission: Impossible III director and Alias creator J.J. Abrams resurrects the classic science fiction franchise created by Gene Roddenberry with this feature film that embraces the rich history of the influential television and film series while also exploring some uncharted territory. Heroes star Zachary Quinto assumes the role of the Federation Starfleet lieutenant and Vulcan made famous in the original series by Leonard Nimoy (who also appears in an older incarnation of his original role), Spock, with Anton Yelchin stepping into the role of USS Enterprise navigator Pavel Chekov, Zoe Saldana assuming the role of communications officer Uhura, Simon Pegg keeping the ship in top shape as chief engineer Montgomery Scott (aka "Scotty"), and Eric Bana tormenting the benevolent space explorers as the villainous Nero. Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle co-star John Cho also boards the Enterprise as Hikaru Sulu, with Chris Pine and Karl Urban assuming the legendary roles of Captain Kirk and Leonard "Bones" McCoy, respectively.~Jason Buchanan

Great atmos sound & hdr picture. This one is probably my favorite of the 3. Don't get me wrong they are all great movies. Could potentially be a reference quality movie. If you want to test your surround sound system well here you go. Looked good on my Samsung tv & blu-ray player. Comes with a embossed slip cover digital copy which redeems in 4k bonus disk & a blu-ray disk.
This is an awesome movie, and it is a must see especially if you have not seen it in HDR/4K and Atoms!!! It shakes the whole house and I am now hearing sounds that that I never heard from my old 1080P Blu-ray. For whatever reason this is one the the best sounding Atmos movies I own!!! It is the sound that sold me on this movie!! The image is also clearer and shaper. It is a must have for a 4K collection!
To begin with I should say that I really like this film. The visuals are amazing. Now that it is avalible on 4K, watching the film is like an immersive experience in my living room! From the very beginning until the last frame, it's a feast for the eyes!
Coming from the standard blu-ray that came out in 2009, this is definitely a nice upgrade and at the price that bestBuy is selling it for. Who can resist that. It gets in nice boost in colors and an Atmos sound. If your a Star Trek fan I would get it.
4K and a superb plot in the 2009 Star Trek movie is a winning combination. The story traces back the story of James Kirk before he joined StarForce Academy. Lots of good chemistry between the major stars and crew. It is very entertaining with incredible action scenes and CGI. The 2009 Star Trek in 4K will thrill the Star Trek the casual and hardcore fan alike.
The sound and picture quality are outstanding on this 4K remaster. You will not be disappointed with this 4K Blu-ray. One of the opening scenes where a young Captain Kirk is driving in future Iowa while listening to the beastie boys makes the whole film work.
