When he is arrested for fraud, he is sentenced to three years in prison and his assets are frozen by the justice.

He challenges the violent leaders of the gangs and defeats them, being respected by the inmates and bringing peace in the patio.

Leave your thoughts about Big Stan.
The Hollywood Reporter - 10/10 by Ray BennettPaced at warp speed with spectacular action sequences rendered brilliantly and with a cast so expert that all the familiar characters are instantly identifiable.
Variety - 10/10 by Todd McCarthyBlasting onto the screen at warp speed and remaining there for two hours, the new and improved Star Trek will transport fans to sci-fi nirvana.
New York Daily News - 10/10 by Joe NeumaierThe new Star Trek is more than a coat of paint on a space-age wagon train. It's an exciting, stellar-yet-earthy blast that successfully blends the hip and the classic.
Village Voice - 10/10 by Robert WilonskyNot only does this Star Trek proffer smart thrills and slick kicks, but it builds upon the original's history–from its very first pilot episode to Robert Wise's 1979 "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" and beyond–while creating an entirely new future.
Boston Globe - 10/10 by Ty BurrIn the pop high it delivers, this is the greatest prequel ever made.
Washington Post - 10/10 by Ann HornadayThis installment has achieved a nearly impossible hat trick. It's a movie that is exegetically correct enough to appease the most hard-core buffs, while opening up the final frontier to a whole new generation of fans who have yet to appreciate Star Trek's ineffable combination of sci-fi action, campy humor and yin-yang philosophical tussle between logic and emotion.
The Guardian - 10/10 by Peter BradshawThis new Star Trek is fast-moving, funny, exciting warp-speed entertainment and, heaven help me, even quite moving - the kind of film that shows that, like it or not, commercial cinema can still deliver a sledgehammer punch.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 9/10 by Carrie RickeyThe result is more exciting than the last four ST pictures put together, more fun than a barrel of Tribbles, and the most satisfying action-adventure since last year's "Iron Man."
Rolling Stone - 9/10 by Peter TraversA burst of pure filmmaking exhilaration that manages to pay homage to the classic 1960s TV series and still boldly go where no man, William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy included, has gone before.
Premiere - 9/10 by Patrick ParkerWe were also glad to see they didn't ignore the humorous elements that made the original so great. Plus, the casting is spot on.
TV Guide Magazine - 9/10 by Jason BuchananIt fulfills its promise of rebooting the series while leaving us wanting more, and it does so with style and energy to spare. Now that's an origins tale that truly delivers.
Tampa Bay Times - 9/10 by Steve PersallThe new, vastly improved Star Trek moves at warp speed through a marvelously reinvented sci-fi franchise, reverent to the past and firmly entrenched in the now.
