Now that "Star Trek" has had premieres all over the world, reviews have started appearing. Overall, the response seems to be very good (without giving away many plotpoints, thankfully).
Blasting onto the screen at warp speed and remaining there for two hours, the new and improved “Star Trek” will transport fans to sci-fi nirvana. Faithful enough to the spirit and key particulars of Gene Roddenberry’s original conception to keep its torchbearers happy but, more crucially, exciting on its own terms in a way that makes familiarity with the franchise irrelevant, J.J. Abrams’ smart and breathless space adventure feels like a summer blockbuster that just couldn’t stay in the box another month. Paramount won’t need any economic stimulus package with all the money it’ll rake in with this one globally, and a follow-up won’t arrive soon enough.
I'm not going to read any others until I see the movie, but if you'd like to see a couple of them for yourself....click on the links below to read what they had to say:
