We watched Star Trek The Future Begins on Friday because my wife had forgotten most of it. It was great as usual but was definitely out done by the sequel Into Darkness...

I could not believe how good this movie was. I was simply blown away with everything from the great story line, to the non stop action. JJ Abrams and the staff did an incredible job on this flick. The audio sound track had me strapped into my seat as we were flying through out the galaxy. The video was superb and combined with the audio made me feel as if I was in outer space right there on the USS Enterprise. I could not get enough, and loved every moment of it. My wife said why can't all movies be this good???

We started off with the 3D version, however my wife said the glasses were to heavy for her so I changed it out for the 2D disc. I will have to buy her a more suitable pair and go from there....

Going to have to say it:
Best Sci-Fi / Action Movie that I have Seen!

5 out of 5 Stars would be an Understatement!

I saw it Saturday night and my wife and I really liked it. I could not play it loud because our 3-year old was sleeping upstairs. I need to see it again on the Blu-ray version and crank it up.

I hate to disagree with everyone, being a Trekkie for many years, but I didn't like it that much. To me, it just didn't "click", although the effects were outstanding.

Bob,

My wife shares your opinion. She thinks the characters are "wrong" because "they are just the worst traits of the originals." I got past the fact that this is a reboot (alternate universe, if you will) and, consequently, enjoyed the ride.

Different strokes ....
