It was a good movie and I liked it. I enjoyed watching the movie and liked the story line (not much of a treky). The effects were cool. I feel a little let down though when I compared it to the Star Trek (2009) (only other Star Trek I've seen) because it seemed to have less action and at times was hard to keep my attention. Overall I would say it was a 7 out of 10.

This long-time Trekkie (always hated the "Trekker" title) is blown away. My fiancee, a casual Trek-watcher, really enjoyed herself, as well! This flick has something for everybody and even the biggest Trek-hater will at least get a hell of a ride out of it.

Several twists and turns that we're unexpected. Humor was more evident this time around, had more of the feeling of the original series. From a long time Star Trek fan, this was great.

Went to an early show as hubby is a "trekie" from way back and loved it! Wouldn't expect anything else from him. We did put paper in our ears to muffle the sound as is always too loud.
I enjoyed it. Had a fast pace so I didn't get bored. Wasn't so gruesome that I couldn't look. Overall I would say it is very good.
What I did not like is the 30+ minutes of trailers, advertisements for Sprint, and so forth. At least 6 times I think I counted that there was a Sprint branded ad that said turn off your cell phone rings and do not text. 6 is too much. People know to do this and if they are going to anyway, 6 times doesn't change their rudeness.
One other comment about the theater, Regal in this instance. We were buying popcorn and a soda. I saw the notice that you could buy a Star Trek t-shirt for $20 and get free popcorn. Hubby said, o.k. The T-shirt fabric is so stiff. Hope it gets better in wash and does not shrink but do not have high hopes.

I don't remember seeing the first one, but this one was enjoyable, funny, and action packed, and the budding romance sequence between Spock and Uhura was adorable. Bones was just as I remembered in the tv series, dry funny humor. Scotty was superb. Checkov was cute. Jim was more interesting in this movie version. And J. Harrison was an excellent villian. Thumbs up to everyone who played a part in this movie version of Star Trek, not just the main actors. Good Job....
NOTE: I paid 3 regular movie price tickets. MOVIES are too expensive as it is with tickets and snacks so I choose not to pay for the Imax 3D version.
