Did somebody just reach through the space-time continuum and pull out a white rabbit?

Just when you thought that the Star Trek phenomenon had truly run its course, along comes J. J. Abrams's stunning prequel to resuscitate the most enduring franchise in sci-fi history.

One of the most accessible and entertaining films of the year.
May 15, 2009
Well, at least they got it half right.
May 8, 2009
The young cast is mostly callow and TV-bland and the special effects don't quite seem worth that hefty price tag, but overall this is a presentable addition to the franchise.
May 8, 2009
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.
May 8, 2009
The wit and youthful energy that's been infused into the new Star Trek should enable this venerable franchise to live longer and prosper more handsomely.
May 8, 2009
In going back to tell the Enterprise story from the beginning, Star Trek presses collective emotional buttons people didn't even know they had. At its best, the effect is like seeing life panoramically, past and future, simultaneous and magnificent.
May 8, 2009
Star Trek goes back to the legend's roots with a boldness that brings a fatigued franchise back to life.
May 8, 2009
You needn't know the secret handshakes or utter the Vulcan blessing "live long and prosper" to gain admission to, and enjoy, summer's first thrill ride.
May 8, 2009
In his daft, dizzy reinvention of a moribund franchise, Abrams has found a way to be referential without being reverential, to conjure nostalgia without being constrained by it.
May 8, 2009
The overall impression is one of unbridled enthusiasm on the part of the film's makers, both for its predecessors and for the brave new universe Abrams and his crew are exploring.
May 8, 2009
J. J. Abrams's thriller Star Trek is the first tent-pole film that has made me sob with pure pleasure.
May 8, 2009
Fast-moving, funny, exciting warp-speed entertainment and, heaven help me, even quite moving - the kind of film that shows that, like it or not, commercial cinema can still deliver a sledgehammer punch. It sure didn't feel like a trek to me.

Star Trek used to be smarter. But it was never this fast, fresh and exciting.
May 8, 2009
Star Trek is everything that fans could have hoped for. It throbs with a dynamism that we haven't seen in the series for a very long time and creates a slice of expertly crafted science-fiction escapism.
May 8, 2009
You do get a sense, despite all the other attempts to re-do Star Trek, that this lot boldly go where no man has gone before, and that Abrams has reinvented the series without murdering everything that has gone before.
May 7, 2009
Highly illogical but entertaining as hell.
May 7, 2009
I can name exactly three and a half things "Star Trek" gets wrong -- and I can name about a thousand that Abrams and his cast and crew get absolutely, pitch-perfect, elegantly right.
May 7, 2009
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.
