I went and seen it this evening as the local theaters had early showings.

I liked it.  Fast paced enough that it never seemed to get boring.

When I first heard that they were going to make a film with the original characters I was highly skeptical.
But they have kept the films true to their roots-(and such a wonderful final bow for Leonard Nimoy-quite touching he got to give his old freind Spock a final goodbye),and the new actors are very good.
I'm very excited to see the new one!  Smile

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I want to see this as soon as I can, but I've been sicker than a dog for the last 24 hours, so I don't think it'll be tonight.

Definitely looking forward to seeing this one.  Not this weekend, but maybe the next. Or Beyond!   Wink

Really looking forward to it. I'll probably watch it next weekend. Never expected much out of this reboot...watched the first one long after it came out on DVD. But it got me hooked and the sequel was a must-see in the cinema. I only wonder if this will be the last one and if not how they coped with the tragic death of Anton Yelchin.

Went to see this with my Dad, I agree with his opinion that this one "felt more like a Star Trek movie and not a bunch of kids on a starship." TongueOut

I felt much sadder about Anton's passing after the movie.

Obviously, 13 is not unlucky for some, as I believe this is the 13th "Star Trek" film and the 3rd with this cast, and there should be a 14th "Star Trek" film and the 4th with this cast next year. In comparison, this year will see the 8th "Star Wars" film.

I have also heard this is the film where Sulu comes out as being gay, the character, not the actor, and the 1st major gay character in a "Star Trek" film. Though, from what it is said, we can also expect, shortly, the appearance of gay characters in the "Star Wars" film.

And next year will see a new "Star Trek" TV series on CBS. With the series appearing 1st on CBS, then 24 hours later, appearing on Netflix.

And we will see what we will see.

Finally got to see this one tonight.  LOVED it!  True Star Trek from start to finish.
Great action, great plot, and the new cast has truly grown into their roles. 
And a wonderful tribute to the original cast, there near the end.  I confess I teared up.
5/5 in my book.  Well done, JJ Abrams and crew!

Enjoyed this one. It feels like a solid two parter episode of a Star Trek show with $180 million in production values. That's mostly a compliment.

Well acted, all the characters have something to do, I like the new female character, good action and pacing, good lines. Best of the three so far

Complaints, I feel the villain is poorly motivated, and they could have done more. Also, the interior action scenes are cropped too close, I couls barely tell what was happening at times.

8/10

Looks like a regular action film with a Star Trek skin.

It has done well at the box office. Unadjusted for inflation it might be the biggest domestic grosser in the Star Trek franchise, grossing some $140 million at the domestic box office as of August 12 of this year or 2016. Of course, just counting the domestic box office for a film that cost $185 million to make, it has yet to make back what it cost to make it,  and that is not including the ancillary costs over and above what it cost to make. Still . . .?! It has done well enough that we will likely see another Star Trek film, with the same cast, next year.
