New and refreshing with nods to the classics

If you are expecting the reboots to follow cannon with new actors as if it were some play to be reproduced, you will be sadly disappointed. If you are expecting an exciting, action packed ride that tests your Star Trek knowledge and pay homage to the classics with humor, attitude, and depth of character, you will rejoice. The acting was perfect, each character believable and lines delivered what appears to have been effortlessly. I came close to tears a couple times during the movie, they did a good job of making the moment happen and holding onto it only as long as needed to get the point across. Having seen it in 3D, I feel that this was a great example of what to do. Sure there were a couple depth of field sight gags, but only a very few. Mostly, it was like Thor where the 3D took the image into depth away from you instead of poking you in the eye with "Special Effects" In the end I thoroughly enjoyed this film. We're two movies in and neither one disappointed.

If you are a fan of the 2009 reboot and/or a fan of the original cast in the series and movies, this is an absolute must see. Plays homage to the original while developing the new set of actors.

This is a MUST see for everyone from the most hardcore trekkie to those who have never even seen a Star Trek episode. The mix of drama, action and comedy are spot on. After the success of the first film in 2009 this does not disappoint.

Better than the first

As we didn't need to be introduced to the characters, Spock and Kirk were able to come into their own and we got to experience more of the story. Plus Benedict Cumberbatch played an AWESOME villian!

***** Action, special effects, great story line and believable charactors. Not a flaw in the whole movie and except for a dirty word s##t and Kirk in bed with two girls? yes girls? it is fun for all ages. The best Star Trek movie ever. It will keep you rivited to your seat. The Imax experience was exactly that, an experience. 5 out of 5. Go Go Go see this movie and bring some oxygen, you'll need it.
