The Gene Roddenberry years, when stories might play with questions of science, ideals or philosophy, have been replaced by stories reduced to loud and colorful action.

Abrams manages quite well in making $150 million look like an episode of Babylon 5. Fistfights are poorly edited, and when he wants to create excitement and tension, Abrams simply has the camera shake around a lot in close-up.

Well, at least they got it half right.

Just because a film is noisy, colorful and fast does not ipso facto mean that it is also a rollicking entertainment.

Barely competent. J.J. Abrams has a TV soul.

The film is just another noisy space opera in which the humanity takes a back seat to the hardware, something that the real "Star Trek" managed to avoid at its peak moments.

For nearly its first hour, I felt I was witnessing Abrams hitting every beat just right, only to see him and his writers spend the final hour getting just about everything wrong.

Abrams doesn't get the franchise that Roddenberry created.

That jolt of energy may resuscitate the franchise; its breathing, however, feels shallow.

While entertaining as a space soap opera, the film dismantles much of what made Star Trek once great.

Amazing sound, a ton of fury, signifying nothing... So densely orchestrated that the film never gives the audience a moment to breath it all in.

Quinto is the one person here who may leave teen-aged viewers more perplexed than puffed up; he somehow rebukes the movie's whole obsession with backstory and immaturity by seeming riper and wiser than the charmless folly that is spun around him.

This Star Trek sells cuteness, sentimentality and explosive F/X as if Starship Troopers, Minority Report, Mission to Mars or even Blade Runner or The Matrix (all visionary standard-setters) never happened.

Even by the standards of its own predecessors, this Trek feels like it was made by a committee of logic-minded Vulcans (or franchise-protective studio executives) rather than a filmmaker with the singular personality of Nicholas Meyer.

It's been thirty years since I last found myself at the movies, rooting for a black hole.

A mindless, milling mess. Just what you would expect from somebody schooled in the Michael Bay/Jerry Bruckheimer academy of bad directing.

If you realise that it has one aim - to introduce an entirely new audience to the franchise - and go into the cinema knowing that, then you'll have a good time. Unlike like me: I sat there with my arms folded, tutting a lot.

A work of considerable technical expertise and workmanlike efficiency: It's uncanny how it hits every little pop culture note anyone could possibly expect from it.

... it pleases me to report that the new film from Director J.J. Abrams pulled me (a Trek newbie) in like a Romulan tractor beam.

Salutes the rich history of the franchise while avoiding any hint of hokey, by-the-book starch.
