Yeah, the Sabotage had to do with Kirk stealing his step dad's classic car and destroying it because he was an immense **** as a child I guess, but it was ok in that film... It looks interesting. I liked both the previous movies enough though. The first was great I thought, and the 2nd one was ok despite many plotholes. It was still just fun to watch. Nothing intellectual to it.
Then again I never considered the previous Trek movies too "deep" either.
I enjoyed the first one a lot though, and actually my GF did too, which I was kind of shocked. She hates Star Trek generally.
