If you are devoted to Star Trek, and want everything to fit precisely into the Star Trek universe, and previously established story, I gather some aspects of the plot will bother you. But, if you're like me, and just want to be entertained, and liked the first movie in this series, you'll have a great time. Lots of action, and energy, and character development.

Man this movie was amazing. I love star trek all ways have. In my book J.J Adams made an excellent movie that Mr. Roddenberry would be proud of. If you love excellent Sc-Fi or star trek you will love this movie. It was a lot of fun to watch. It is a must see.
Live long and prosper

I thought the movie was pretty good, but not better than the first one. At times the story line slows down a bit, but it keeps you interested enough to not feel like an actual 2hr movie. All in all, it was a good movie.

I had heard very good things about the new Star Trek movie, but I mostly remember an above 90s ration on Rottentomato.com. And the visual effects and action were great. However, the story left both my 16 year old son and me unimpressed. I am a long, long time Star Trek fan, so when it became obvious that this movie was a re-telling of an original Star Trek episode plus the second Star Trek movie, I was sorely disappointed. The first movie's story was so original, so to see Star Trek II scenes replayed with minor changes...meh. Oh, and that last scene where Khan picks p a trench coat and runs a la Sherlock Holmes, just seemed like an add for the UK series Sherlock.
Also, the screenwriters seemed to be trying too hard to have cutesy dialog,

If you have been following Star Trek from the very first black and white TV episode....., the story line will make sense!!!! If not....., you might think something else. I cannot say as it might give away the real meaning of the movie!!!! You must go to see this movie!!! It is incredible! Buy the DVD collection of Star Trek from the beginning of the TV episodes!!! No gimmick it will all make sense!!!
