Recently one of the writers of ‘Star Trek Into Darkness‘, Roberto Orci (‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘), very strongly spoke out against those who haven’t enjoyed the film, using some rather strong language to get his point across.

Now, he’s decided to back down from his earlier statement with saying he’s sorry for acting how he did. Well, he doesn’t exactly apologize to those he offended, but he did take to his Twitter and in two tweets showed that he wished that he had reacted differently. Note that he doesn’t say he apologizes directly or that he disagrees with what he had said.

Here’s what he had to say on Twitter:

@masteractor not my finest moment. agreed. what can I say? i’m more than half human.

“@LawrenceBoucher: Hope you know many fans don’t agree w/ article or the obnoxious comments directed at you.” Thanks. Still sorry I reacted

Honestly, this all started when Simon Pegg (‘The World’s End‘) decided defend the movie rather loudly and telling off those who are misjudging the film. It was a very Simon Pegg thing to do and I don’t think anyone really took offense as he’s known to be an outspoken geek (the same as those who were showing their own opinion on it.) Roberto is a little less well known to the public eye.

Those involved with ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ are quite passionate about the film they’ve made. Sure, there may have been some problems with it, but no one on the cast is clearly happy that it was voted the worst ‘Star Trek’ film to date. I’m pretty sure I’ve made it clear on all of the posts related to this that I strongly disagree with that sentiment, although some of those involved with the movie are a little more outspoken.

I’m a little torn on these reactions. On the one hand, I honestly believe the film was great and the crew has a right to be annoyed by the responses. On the other, when you make a piece of art, there will be people out there who don’t like it. You can’t make everyone happy and generally going off on those who disagree with you isn’t the right course of action.

So what do you think? Was a real apology warranted or was his reaction justified?
