Spoiler Free review From a casual Star Trek fan

I'm a fan of the original series, but not a Treker(ie?)...although I do love the genre. So if you're a die-hard Treker, I don't know if aspects of this movie will wow you or annoy you (although my mother in law, a pretty huge fan of the originals, loved it). There are a TON of homages in this one, some of them subtle (an alien communication officer is wearing Uhura's earrings from the show), some of them so blatant that with lesser actors and a lesser director, would cause groans from the audience. The writers did a fantastic job packing a ton of story with good flow and dialog into this film, and JJ Abrams...the boy is one of the best directors in Hollywood right now, if he can just reel in the lens flares. Sometimes you wonder if you could decipher a code from the intensity and frequency of them. Cast are top notch. 3d is surprisingly good considering it was done in post. If you like 3d, see it that way.

Loved the movie!!! If you love Star Trek, you will LOVE it too! Even my husband was glad he saw it, and he isn't a big Trek fan.

I must say, WOW, once again... I am a Star Trek fan as I grew up with it, BUT... This was a great movie... I loved the way that they kept throwing out hints from old and new, but twisted the opposites of the characters.... Will add this to the collection... FOR SURE !!!

Big fun

This was a really fun installment of the Star Trek franchise and both stands on its own to the new viewer (my wife) and for the longtime fan (myself). You can pick a Star Trek movie to pieces on all sorts of stuff or you can just enjoy it for what it is - still Wagon Train in space. This movie is particularly fun for the longtime fan because it contains so many homages and references to the original series and movies. You'll enjoy it if you ever enjoyed anything Trek.
