So, I just got back from seeing this with my brother and friends. I had no real expectations for it, and never really saw any information on it, so a number of things caught me by surprise. Overall, it was enjoyable, in a very tense actiony way. It also felt a little bit drawn out, with some of the lengthy action sequences could be fully described in a sentence or two. I recommend it, though it might annoy those of you who worry about the canon of the show.

So, here are some of my (spoilery) reactions to it:
Spoiler:
Didn't expect Scottie to quit right there in the beginning.
Mysterious bad guy? Time to phone original Spock.
Nice little reverse they had there.
KHANNNNN!

Awesome movie! Seen it twice already.

I've recently gotten into the whole Star Trek thing. Already seen the original series and The Next Generation. Working on Deep Space Nine right now.

Speaking of, StarTrek.com recently put up full videos of every single episode of every series. Yeah.

Nice! Been watching via Netflix and I have the movies on blu ray.

I brought my Tribble with me during the second showing of the movie.

I just saw this movie yesterday evening! (With my girlfriend, who had seen it before and kept trying to cuddle with me in the movie but I was too focused on watching it, lol) It was pretty good; I had had the big twist spoiled thanks to Facebook, but it was still enjoyable.

Though I never actually saw the first reboot Star Trek movie...

It did kind of set up the whole thing. Although if you're a Star Trek nerd it should be fairly easy to see how much the universe got messed with
