To be honest, I really enjoyed this movie, brilliant special effects, reasonable acting from a younger cast, the inevitable appearance of Leonard Nimoy, all in all a good quality Trekky movie that stand up against and even exceeds the rest.
Went the pictures twice to see this because its that good.
Ok lets just get something straight, I'm no Trekkie (not even the Wrath of Khan, no), absol-fuckin-utely not, I'm a Star Wars fan, I may even accept the term Star Wars geek (we are talking original triology here not that new shite) but and it pains me to say this, this is a quality movie, I wanted it to be all the things the others where, namely camp, shit and hammy but it wasnt, it rocked and it rocked hard, loved every single cgi-filled second!!
Being a semi-trekkie I thought not only was it a superb blockbuster but also did its predecessors proud.
I never watched Star Trek, but this is excellent. The storyline is easy to follow, entertaining and there's loads of explosions. What more do you want from a sci-fi film?
