Film was amazing. It's definitely at the top spot right now in terms of best movie of 2009. It's a much more hip and revised take on the Star Trek series. It's a shoot first, talk later type of movie which probably won't bode well for the hardcore Trekkie fans. The whole Capt. Kirk underdog story element and how he ends up taking the reigns of the USS Enterprise is exactly what the movie XMEN Origins: Wolverine wanted to be, but failed. Spock vs. Kirk = very well done. And the cast was pretty spot on.. it's a very recent crop with many actors coming from modern teen flicks.

Disclaimer: There were waaaaay too many epic scenes in the film. I know the word epic is overused but damn.. no other word to describe it.

movie was freaking epic! A great start for the summer. It has everything a summer flick should be. I love all the casting. The only thing I notice is there's alot of lens flare going on haha

I liked it, and I never fucked with Star Trek before this. Captain Kirk is that dude, but Spock FTW! for macking up the black broad.

*Spolier-esque*
The only things that was weird was seeing Nimoy in the future not acting like he was god's gift to life. I thought that was Spock's whole MO?

This movie was dope but I definitely didn't think it was epic. I think I went in with too high expectations.

Just hooted it, I've never watched anything Star Trek before, but the 97% on Rotten Tomatoes got me out to it. I thought it was decent, but no 97%er.

^ same. rotten usually gives out real harsh grades,, but when they give out 90%+ it's usually real good.

saw star trek earlier today. . fell asleep halfway for about 20 mins. didn't like it @ all,, should've went with my intuition in angels+demons. oh well,, terminator this thurs

I liked this a lot, the fact that I didn't know shit about star treck probably helped though.

I saw this last week, dope movie. I'm not big into Star Trek or anything so I wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. I like how they made it enjoyable for both fans and casual people.
