What are people saying?

  • Seth Farmer's rating of the film Star Trek

    "by far my favorite Star Trek film. its not anything like the classics, but its so much better. no cheesy acting, no cheesy (but admirable) special effects, and most importantly, no cheesy villain. Eric Bana really impressed me as did the rest of the amazing cast. five stars for sure." Shit like that scares me.

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Star Trek

    Coming from a casual viewer (if that) of Star Trek, this film was quite impressive. It managed to restart a franchise in a realistic style while also maintaining the hokey charms of the original series. The cinematography and special effects were great (despite the endless lens flares) and the performances were fun. Thoroughly enjoyable, although not as philosophical as the original series strived to be.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Star Trek

    Bold reboot willing to take iconic characters and give them a fresh spin for modern moviegoers gave the series the breath of fresh air it truly needed. Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and especially Zachary Quinto made the characters their own but several of the supporting players couldn't quite overcome the stereotypes attributed. Effects work is hit and miss but the platform fall/fight is very impressive. Bodes well.

  • Phil Worfel's rating of the film Star Trek

    I couldn't believe how good this was. Yeah it's got some plot holes but for the first time in a while I couldn't care less. i loved the characters (one of the most perfectly cast films I've ever seen) and the narrative pulled me along breathlessly. The best space opera I've seen since Serenity.

  • Ethan's rating of the film Star Trek

    J.J. Abrams really knows how to revive a franchise and he definitely delivered with this entertaining entry into the Star Trek franchise with a modern flair to it.

  • Arielle Grimes's rating of the film Star Trek

    A fun take on a beloved series. It's very simple, very basic, and hardly Star Trek. It takes too much influence from Star Wars in most peoples opinion but I found it very refreshing in an industry climate of messy summer films. Fun film with friends, but don't expect the character growth to continue into the sequel.

  • porcelainfox's rating of the film Star Trek

    Fantastic visuals, great casting; very exciting, funny, at times even moving (not too much, though) - kept me entertained the whole way through and now I'm really looking forward to seeing the sequel and maybe even exploring the franchise a little more.

  • Neil Forrest's rating of the film Star Trek

    Free from the constraints of any interference or conflict with any current running television series, Abrams is allowed to further abandon 'canon,' with a clever reset to this reboot. He does so with aplomb, with the results making, a once mired down with techno babble franchise, a fun and exciting one again. A superior action/adventure with tons of style and swagger, that cracks along at a kinetic pace.
