While I'm not a Trekkie, I do love Sci Fi films and books. I've always been more of a Star Wars fan, but I've seen a couple of the Star Trek films and watched my share of the original Star Trek series with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. I really enjoyed all two hours and ten minutes of this film. Usually my preference is for a standard 90 minute film and when two hours nears I'm squirming in my seat. This film moved so quickly I wondered if, perhaps, I'd fallen victim to some glitch in the time-space continuum.
There were Top Gun moments in the early bits of the film and Empire Strikes Back and even some shades of LOST in there, but really it was Star Trek all the way. It was tons of fun to see each of the familiar cast members appear in their young versions and as was always the case, Spock is my favorite. Good work J. J. Abrams, I look forward to the next Star Trek film.
