Adventure Sci-Fi - This is a sequel, prequel, and revamp of the long-running sci-fi TV
and film series, so existing fans will be pleased as well as
newcomers to the series. The amped-up action element will make it
play a lot better with mass audiences and younger viewers. Parents
of young children should be warned as there is some mild sensuality
and intense action sequences.
PROFANITY: 1 S-word, 1 GD, a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief, clothed sensuality. VIOLENCE: Fights and shootings with minimal blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: Fights, chases, explosions, destruction, space combat. COMEDY: Wisecracks and banter.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good Star Trek is clearly an action-oriented motion picture, with an intensity that exceeds even that of The Wrath of Khan.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average 'Star Trek' as a concept has voyaged far beyond science fiction and into the safe waters of space opera, but that doesn't amaze me.
USA TodayFull Review Good Unlike previous incarnations, there are no weighty scenarios or moral quandaries in this refashioning of Star Trek. It's an energetic sci-fi extravaganza, with spectacular action sequences and nifty visuals.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 198 moviegoers:
FANTASTIC REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, LOVED "STAR TREK." These are exceptional reviews for an exceptional movie. You don't have to be a fan to enjoy this movie. However, if you have the slightest interest in Star Trek, this one is AN ABSOLUTE MUST SEE!
One, James Tiberius Kirk (Chris Pine), a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm
boy, a natural-born leader in search of a cause. The other, Spock (Zachary
Quinto), grows up on the planet Vulcan, an outcast due to his half-human
background, which makes him susceptible to the volatile emotions that Vulcans
have long lived without, and yet an ingenious, determined student, who will
become the first of his kind accepted into the Starfleet Academy.
Kirk and Spock could not be more different. Yet, in their quest to figure
out who they really are and what they have to give to the world, they soon
become competitive cadets-in-training. With their drastically opposite styles, one
driven by fiery passion, the other by rigorous logic, they also become defiant,
contentious adversaries, each equally unimpressed with the other, each going all
out to be among the special few chosen to join the crew of the most advanced
starship ever created, the U.S.S. Enterprise.
