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!

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.

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!

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!

Though this movie was good, as a movie, again, I was very disappointed in J.J. Abrams. He stated he wanted to make this film for movie-goers and not for Star Trek fans, well, he succeeded. As a Star Trek fan I was not pleased with his re-hashing old Star Trek scripts with his twists.
If you are a fan of action movies with a lot of special effects, this is a very good movie to see. If you like the philosophical views found in all prior Star Trek shows and movies, you will do good to miss this movie.
