J.J. Abrams really has a nack for Star Trek. It is really cool how the stories are just a little different because of the timeline change when he re-booted the series. I hope he continues at the the helm of the movies an not have to wait 4 years.

They have definitely captured the old chemistry with the new actors, and they just seem to be getting more and more comfortable with the roles. Plenty of action and excitement, but it's definitely the characters that make this a Must Go!

This movie will have all Trekkies cheering! JJ Abrams has done a phenomenal job of updating storylines and character interactions from the 40+ year old Trek franchise. This is a must-see for adults and young adults. I will definitely be seeing it again!

After 35 years of being a solid Star Trek fan, I will simply say that this franchise, largely thanks to JJ Abrams, is far from over, and there will be several more movies to come. The new Abrams take is action from beginning to end which is clearly what the original movies lacked, as much as I own and enjoy all of them. My daughter absolutely hates Star Trek, but she loved this movie. Right there is the secret to Abrams' approach, and don't kid yourself-he knows it. You don't even have to like Star Trek to enjoy his action packed reboots. Pretty good trick. All I can say is good for him.
This is definitely a must see. There are even some lines and some creatures that Star Trek fans will recognize, which is a good thing because it keeps the original fans like myself engaged. I happen to feel that is just a touch better and more engaging than the 2009 movie.

Just the right amount of throwback comments ('I'm a doctor, Jim, not and engineer!') and wonderful chemistry between Kirk & Spock. I hope they keep making these movies -- one for every episode of the original series!
