    Indeed

    Had no idea who the villain was going to be as I went in blind

    Set the third one up nicely with a little klingon action

    It was a nice surprise going in blind.

    I had guessed the identity of you know who, but it was still great. Solid cast.

    Great beginning, solid ending. Middle was kind of boring. Star Trek has always been a little too dialogue heavy, and it just wrecks the momentum. Chekov had absolutely nothing to do in the movie except run around the engine room, and Uhura and Sulu are used sparingly.

    I liked the 2009 reboot more.

    Maybe Star Trek will fare better in another director's hands. Maybe it's just me, but I can definitely picture Chris Pine playing the son of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Episode VII. Maybe JJ Abrams will pull a few actors from Star Trek over to the Star Wars movie
