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,

We loved this film. Went back to see it a second time and brought friends.
Wonderful chemistry between the main actors. Great banter. Fast pace (but not too fast) and fun inside jokes.
Anyone who has seen Star Trek should enjoy this installment.

I had high expectations and they were met. The official movie critics don't know a good movie when they see one. I loved it! Plenty of action, laughs, tears, and tension. The actors from the first reboot were excellent once again and Benedict Cumberbatch was perfect as this movie's villain.

This installment of the Star Trek Franchise casts all key characters from the last movie in 2009, and begins in the first scene with incredible action and heart racing intesity. The movie contains action packed adventure and has spectacular visual and sound effects. Over the previous installment of Star Trek (2009), it partains more the the emotional side of the audience and presents relationships and values that we have all come to know and love. IMBD has already rated this movie #176, in the greatest movies ever made, and that number continues to rise as more votes come in. Personally I would give the newest addition to Star Trek a 9.1 out of 10, [ compared to the Dark Knight Rises at 8.6 out of 10 ] . Add the futuristic appeal yet the present day touch, and you get an enormous blockbuster that is a must watch among people of all ages.
