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.

A blast into the future, with on-the-edge-of-your-seat scenes accentuated with forceful and powerful villains, and contrasted with moments of quiet revelation and humor. A symphony of science and modern art. Worth seeing more than once!

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.

All in all, pretty good. Darned good.
Definitely a thrill-ride with a lot of eye- and mind-candy up to and including... things i won't mention here because they would be major-league spoilers. It is extremely colorful on many levels and their production detail is everything you could hope for (check out the fletching on the spears in the opening sequence). My main quibble about the thing involves a couple of points of plot-logic and physics (Free-fall is free-fall, ******!) but, I can say that the movie I saw entertained me in a big way. I think you'll like it, too.

if you are a ST fan- you will be impressed. If you are a fan of action- you will be blown away. If you liked Iron Man 3- THIS IS ABSOLUTELY BETTER THAN IR3 on several levels. I liked IR3, this was just better all round- incredible plot, action and character depiction/development.
Cant wait to see it again and when the next one comes out! Go JJ Abrams and everyone that put this together. Five stars- a must go, have fun!
