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.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Star Trek is clearly an action-oriented motion picture, with an intensity that exceeds even that of The Wrath of Khan.

Roger Ebert Full 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 Today Full 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.

Moviegoer Opinions:

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!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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.
