Just saw the IMAX version of the new movie.

I was not disappointed.

As we were walking out a woman next to me was crying. I looked at her and she said "Sorry. It was just so good."

Good Luck.

You beat me to it Ripjack....

I caught the IMAX premiere last night and it was a great little film. Definitely like the new direction, and many of the normal boring, sterile trek conventions are gone. I'd rate the film 8 out 10.

I've seen it twice over consecutive days.

It's breathed fresh air into Star Trek. Much more cutting edge and a good script. I hope to never see anything again like: Star Trek 3: The search for Spock.

I liken the difference between it and some of the previous Star Trek movies to the difference to the Bond Movie "Quantum of Solace' and it's recent predecessors. A lot more realism and a focus on good ol' fashioned action.

And without saying too much to give away the plot, the script for this Prequel very cleverly develops a way for further Star Trek movies with this fresh crop of Actors, without clashing with the 'timeline' of the previous (but chronologically later) movies.

I agree with an 8 out of 10 rating.

Yeah that was good stuff. A lot of the . . .technical aspects of the thing were inaccurate from a classical trek point of view . . . but I didn't care. The movie was fun and exciting and all that bloody matters.

I'm on some other forums where trek geeks are over-analysing the thing and it's bloody annoying.

I agree enitrely. The characters were very well developed, didn't seem in jarring contrast with the original and yet, stood on 'their own feet' and the storyline was sound. Hell they probably let some inaccuracies in just to get the super geeks talking more.

As the line goes "there is no such thing as bad advertising'.

I know I am late with this, but just saw the movie.
HOLY CRAP!!!!
They should STRESS Star Trek: "The Future Begins".
I was sitting there at the end thinking, how were they going to wrap this up and put things back on the timeline/plotline we are all used to.
Then BAM they didn't do something lame, and just quick fix end.
Sat there at the end debating with myself if this was, cool or if this was really wrong. Decided it was Really cool, now it gives them all sorts of Flexiblity for the next 5 movies.
Wow, what a concept, I normally HATE space time continum movies, this one wasn't an issue at all, and I can't wait for the NEXT one.
May start a poll, who is your new/old Favorite.

I think he was very well cast and played the cantankerous medico exactly as he should have been.

Without a doubt the best for me.

Yes I know the actor is a Kiwi. He was good in Lord of the Rings as well.
