Being a long term Trekie I love the re-boot of the franchise and how all things old are new. The re-introduction of Khan is great and this installment of Star Trek did NOT disappoint. Left the theater Stunned and Awed by the scale and speed of the Story. A Glorious story in it's own right and the tie in to the original story line left me emotionally satisfied.

The graphics were spectacular but the fact that it was not originally filmed in 3D or iMAX (only partially shot in iMAX) was a bit unnerving.
Benedict Cumberbatch should get an Oscar for his spectacular performance.
The story line seemed to lag toward the end and seemed disjointed. Additionally there was a loose thread that was not tied and that nagged at me. I'll not relate that for those who have not seen the movie.
And what's with the Leonard Nimoy cameo? Did that also seem open ended?
When I heard that Abrams was also going to direct Star Wars I wondered was this just the Hollywood Good Ole Boy machine at work or sheer talent. I concluded the former and now that has taken some of the edge off of my anticipation for something worthy of the franchise the way it should have been before Lucas totally screwed the pooch. I think there is something in the drinking water in Hollywood or Marin County that causes once worth individuals to become delusional and malfunctioning.

A visually stunning experience in 3D, and some of the plot twists were not as surprising as one may think but there was one plot device that I did not expect, however, it did not take away from the experience.

I can't believe it took me this long to see it in IMAX 3D. It is worth every penny to see it in IMAX 3D and I'm sorry I was hesitant to spend the extra money to see it this way.

A real throwback to the original Wrath of Kahn - which you must see before you go. This movie was tons of fun and great to watch in IMAX 3D. Go for it!
