Critic Review - Salon.com

With Star Trek Abrams honors the show's legacy without fossilizing its best qualities. Instead, he's whisked it off to a planet where numbing nostalgia can't kill it, and where the future is still something to look forward to.

Honours the show's legacy with little trivial bits while missing the heart of many characters....I love your bandwagon approach to reviews.

Wasn't it more of a cheesy line than anything heartfelt, with such things as throwing the "friend" line out so... well meaninglessly?

You didn't think the plot holes were too plentiful? How about a much respected James Kirk being turned in to a bar hopping, drunk, woman abuser? The story is absurd and the villain is laughable. Did you even watch it?

I am a star trek fan and i watched star trek since a child watching every single episodes of every star trek franchise from TOS ENT DS9 VOY, ENT(Archer). Yes there are some plot holes and yes the villan and the story could have been done better but it was a great movie so chill star trek fanboy nazi.

As for your vision of Kirk. Kirk was always eccentric, fly by the seat of your pants captain, rebel, cowboy of the galaxy, even a drinker star trek captain that is what made him popular out of the rest of self righteous monotone captains like Picard or Janeway. Women abuser? where did he abuse a women in the movie? Did you see the movie?
