    Took my 14 year old son to see it Sunday. 8.5/10.

    Best of the new movies and probably 4 out of the 13 films. A fun combination of action and occasional thinking with a delightful twist to the ending. Lots of nods to past versions and even to the first movie - sabotage is a call back of its own after all.

    Urban as McCoy is simply the best channeling of another person I've ever seen.

    They've already announced #4 and hired the actor for George Kirk again. I look forward to seeing where they go with that. After Into Darkness I'd have been concerned: after Beyond I am excited.

    Diving back into this thread, because I saw the movie last night and wanted to offer my three-second review:

    [review] "Beyond" is the best, truest-to-the-original-series Star Trek movie since "Voyage Home." [/review]

    I think this is the third best Star Trek movie ever: 1) Wrath of Khan; 2) Voyage Home; 3) Beyond.

    And, only two lens flares in the entire movie!

    If you want to see a great summer popcorn bash, you can't do much better than "Beyond" -- I highly recommend checking it out!

    Saw it Sunday. I would have to mostly agree with soulgeezer's assessment.

    Yeah I don't understand why they have to make every new movie have some type of gay theme these days. It's just like putting in sex scenes and vulgarity that isn't necessary. Ruins the spirit of the movie for me.

    Nice accessory, I must say!

    SASS is the Single Action Shooting Society, the largest cowboy action shooting (CAS) organization in the US. I thought you might shoot, too...?

    I do, but not competitively. At least not since I was a cadet.

    So you think Star Trek V, VI (also known as The Apology), Generations, Insurrection, and Nemesis were great films?

    You left out First Contact.

    You can't make a statement about the last five films and then conveniently ignore the one that contradicts your statement.

    We're going to today. In IMAX 3D. Frankly, I'd rather save my money and see the regular version, but we're on vacation and wife insists that we see this in a format that we couldn't see at home. Who am I to argue with that logic? Excited!

    My apologies but First Contact also had its flaws as well. And since they had an opportunity to continue the story line into another film they choose not to which was a mistake.

    The J.J. Abrams films brought back a sense of fun that was missing for a long time.

    I have to disagree; the Abrams movies simply punted the canon away, so everything I knew as a Trekkie no longer applied all of a sudden. It was pretty disorienting.
    Besides, name for me a movie that doesn't have flaws. You can't do it.
