Great action. Fair story with many sequences ripped from other Trek movies but overall nicely done. Sequences as city is destroyed were tough for a New Yorker to see.

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

My favorite of the summer so far. Great story line and introduction of a main future villain in
Benedict Cumberbatch character. Great space special effects and use of the IMAX Camaras. A lot lots of fun!!!!! Can not wait for the next sequel!

Unless you are reading mine ... you need to not be tainted by amateur reviews (like mine) and ranting, ravings, pontifications of a bunch of know it alls ... it is a fun filled movie! The action is amazing. It is visually stimulating (if you can -- IMAX is a must). And the story line is one that should provoke a giddy "YES" for the newbie non-hardcore Trekker as well as an awe induced coma for the people like Sheldon on BBT.
The character relationships ... they NAILED it. DeForest Kelley is giving Urban a big thumbs up from the great beyond. Shatner and Nimoy should leave the theater with a big, proud smile too. They all should. Stop reading reviews before they give away all of the amazing pearls and priceless nuggets of this movie. Make it your experience. Just go see it! There is nothing more I can say otherwise I'll have to type something like *** SPOILER ALERT *** The villains, the heroes, the Enterprise ALL took a pounding ... and so will your heart. GO ! Have a good time.

I've seen all the Star Trek movies and tv shows so I have a lot to compare, This movie was outstanding, actually had me on the edge of my seat a couple of times. Benedict Cumberbatch was an outstanding 'bad guy'. I would go see again and recommend it to anyone!
