4.5 out of 10 Surprisingly Excellent
Tim from Cork, 23 Mar 2010
I'll admit used used to watch Star Trek: The Next Generation when I was younger but I was never really a Trekky. My wife hated Star Trek mostly because her sister was a Trekky. Both of us found this very entertaining and enjoyable. It does the action scenes very well and the whole film is peppered with comic moments, mostly taking the mick out of the whole camp history of Star Trek as well as taking the mick out of itself. But, the best thing about the whole film is the character development a

3.5 out of 10 Remember when it all began?

If you grew up with the William Shatner original on telly - you will love this. Refreshing to watch sci-fi and be more interested in the characters than the special effects. The trainee enterprise crew were marvellous. they may not have looked like the originals but their characterizations were spot on. A truly enjoyable splurge of nostalgia. My two teenagers quite enjoyed it but they have been raised on Alien and Predator. Not that type of film.

4.5 out of 10 Feels familiar-looks awesome!
Simon from Donegal, 01 Dec 2009
Bringing the classic series bang up to date, this is a great action movie that not only pays homage to the original series and it's characters but also brings it to a completely new generation (sic) of viewers that will have them rivetted to the screen. I just hope that the producers/directors are able to carry on the quality over the next few films.

4 out of 10 Pretty cool considering it's been done a lot....
Suzanne from Dublin, 09 May 2010
I am a Star Trek Fan but prefer the older versions ie the original and the next generation. This was cool, slick, not too over-done and the story was engaging and fast-paced. Would recommend as a good action movie for a weekend night in. Great casting for Kirk & Spock especially :-)

What's it about....
Director J.J. Abrams (Alias) re-teams with his MI: III screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to bring a new vision of the greatest space adventure of all time. Featuring a young, new crew venturing boldly where no man has gone before, Star Trek depicts Romulan time traveller Nero's bloody quest for revenge against Spock and the Federation.
