Did we miss something on diversity?

Star Trek 3

Well, I think that this movie is pretty good, It is not as good as the second one, though. But, it is still way better than the first one. The end fight scene is so good, because instead of spaceships, there are motor cycles, and blasters. The character's outfits look cool, like super hero costumes. The evil person would be kind of creepy, but his alien face looks like he is always doing a goofy smile, so its not really that scary. The movie has a lot of fight scenes on planets instead of space in huge space ships, which I think gets kind of boring. The movie has a pretty simple story. I think that I would rate this movie Only P-G The only part that's kind of for older adiences is when a character pulls a piece of metal out of another person to help him. In conclusion, this movie is pretty good.
