Star Trek

Science Fiction . Action . Adventure . Sci-Fi

The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James Kirk, is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock, a Vulcan, was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely but powerful partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before. The human adventure has begun again.

    In the pop high it delivers, this is the greatest prequel ever made.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The new Star Trek is more than a coat of paint on a space-age wagon train. It's an exciting, stellar-yet-earthy blast that successfully blends the hip and the classic.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Not only does this Star Trek proffer smart thrills and slick kicks, but it builds upon the original's history–from its very first pilot episode to Robert Wise's 1979 "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" and beyond–while creating an entirely new future.

    Blasting onto the screen at warp speed and remaining there for two hours, the new and improved Star Trek will transport fans to sci-fi nirvana.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    This installment has achieved a nearly impossible hat trick. It's a movie that is exegetically correct enough to appease the most hard-core buffs, while opening up the final frontier to a whole new generation of fans who have yet to appreciate Star Trek's ineffable combination of sci-fi action, campy humor and yin-yang philosophical tussle between logic and emotion.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The clever and infectious reboot of the amazingly enduring sci-fi classic, director J.J. Abrams crafts an origin myth that avoids any hint of the origin doldrums. That's because he rewires us back into the original Star Trek's primal appeal.

  • Shawn Levy

    Full of life, wit, smarts, thrills and sheer gratifying entertainment that it launches the mind on a stream of merry somersaults.

  • Bob Mondello

    It's hard to imagine anyone caring much why we're plunging ahead at warp speed, when the ride is so insanely satisfying.

    An affectionate, exuberant picture that seeks to bring even those who don't know Klingon from Portuguese into the embrace of a pop-culture phenomenon. Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Isn't just a pleasurable rethink of your geek uncle's favorite science-fiction series. It's also a testament to television's power as mythmaker, as a source for some of the fundamental stories we tell about ourselves, who we are and where we came from.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Retains the original Star Trek's spirit of optimism, curiosity, and humor.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Star Trek goes back to the legend's roots with a boldness that brings a fatigued franchise back to life.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    It's not necessary to be a longtime fan of the Star Trek universe to appreciate the sheer emotional punch and swagger of this rough and randy Enterprise crew.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    A burst of pure filmmaking exhilaration that manages to pay homage to the classic 1960s TV series and still boldly go where no man, William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy included, has gone before.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Vigorously played as a young man by Chris Pine, Kirk is a brilliant, sports-car driving, bar-brawling rebel who is finally shamed into joining Starfleet Academy.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    The result is more exciting than the last four ST pictures put together, more fun than a barrel of Tribbles, and the most satisfying action-adventure since last year's "Iron Man."

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Jason Buchanan

    It fulfills its promise of rebooting the series while leaving us wanting more, and it does so with style and energy to spare. Now that's an origins tale that truly delivers.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Patrick Parker

    We were also glad to see they didn't ignore the humorous elements that made the original so great. Plus, the casting is spot on.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Gripping action and vulnerable heroes writ large. It boldly goes somewhere different and makes it hard to leave the film not hoping for a return voyage soon.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    Star Trek is pretty damn enjoyable. By resetting the franchise to what is essentially Year One, Abrams has the luxury of...gently reshaping the core characters.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Colin Kennedy

    Odd-number curse be gone. The most exhilarating Trek to date marks a new future for Kirk and co. If this can boldly go on to seek out ideas to match its speed and style, a franchise is reborn.

    Empire Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Abrams and his writers (Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman) have come up with a way to make you dig the souped-up new scenery while pining for the familiar--a good thing.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Though it has its over-caffeinated aspects and its missteps, this Star Trek has in general bridged the gap between the old and the new with alacrity and purpose.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    It's a real family film, relatively light on the violence and funny without being overly crude; it even has some touching moments.

    Time Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Breathlessly paced bordering on manic, but propulsively entertaining.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    There is considerable fun in discovering the hows and whys the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise came together, and each member has at least one moment in the spotlight, including the esteemed helmsman Sulu.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    At its best, the effect is like seeing life panoramically, past and future, simultaneous and magnificent.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    When it comes to sheer spectacle, Star Trek, as re-imagined by J.J. Abrams, delivers.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Ultimately, when the end credits roll, we're left with the sense that Star Trek represents a good beginning. As a film tasked with getting all the characters together, re-booting a timeline, and finding a way to return a veteran actor to his beloved role, Star Trek works.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Smart and youthful, with a well-balanced package of humour, romance, crisp action and character-based drama, Star Trek gives popcorn movies a good name.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    What makes this movie ultra-contemporary is the way Abrams has re-imagined Spock and Kirk as a team of rivals.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    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.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    This new Star Trek is nonsense, no question ("Prepare the red matter!"), but at least it's not boggy nonsense, the way most of the other movies were, and it powers along, unheeding of its own absurdity, with a drive and a confidence that the producers of the original TV series might have smiled upon.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The movie deals with narrative housekeeping. Perhaps the next one will engage these characters in a more challenging and devious story, one more about testing their personalities than re-establishing them. In the meantime, you want space opera, you got it.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The visual effects are predictably excellent -- sometimes, in the case of a three-man free fall through space, unexpectedly lyrical -- but most of the movie's dramatic conflicts feel strictly pro forma.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    A relatively mindless thrill ride that would have made the old NBC execs grin from ear to ear.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    This new Star Trek is 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.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The new, vastly improved Star Trek moves at warp speed through a marvelously reinvented sci-fi franchise, reverent to the past and firmly entrenched in the now.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The movie is fun, it's smart and there's plenty of action. There are enough knowing nods to old-school fans to satisfy them, but the nods don't get in the way. In fact - and a feel for this kind of thing is what makes Abrams so good - they're perfect, nice accents that won't slow down the uninitiated.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Aubrey Day

    Buoyant, buffed and with the promise of even better to come, this is the freshest Trek in decades.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    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.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    This is a grand success – perhaps a new populist benchmark in what to do with a flagging franchise, and a witty, light-on-its-feet prequel.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Jeff Shannon

    This is easily the best “Trek” movie since “Khan,” giving the rebooted franchise ample reason to proceed at warp speed.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    It's one heck of a fun ride, a pure popcorn spectacle that doesn't require a knowledge of the Star Trek mythology to make it enjoyable.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Bill Weber

    Like the original cast’s best movie, The Wrath of Khan, this Star Trek essentially turns out to be a war film, with the occasional philosophical timeout to discuss love, friendship, and duty until the next bone-crunching fistfight or multi-weapon rumble with the Romulans. But Bana’s villain lacks the wit and corny majesty of Ricardo Montalban’s.
