I thought this was good. Not as good as the first one, which was fantastic, but good. A 6/10. But yes, I'm with those who say there were story problems, especially with some of the resolutions, imo (eg. death should be meaningless 90% of the time now). And as a Trek fan who initially disliked the idea of a reboot, I kinda now wanted Abrams to go in a completely different than the original movies. Instead of getting geeked at certain moments like "KHANNNNN!", I was taken out of the film.
The Dreadnought scenes were awesome, though. And I hope new Trek movies continue to be more Spock-oriented, since that's when the current franchise seems to be at its best.
Ugh!! The first one was a mess. Funny, I don't mind a reboot, but if you do a reboot just do a damn reboot. I hated that they went with the split timeline, it made the first movie so bad.
I agree with you about being taken out of the film with the "geek" moments too. Unfortunately it happened a lot for me.
Dreadnought was interesting... but it was unfortunate that it was kind of a plot point they repeated in the last three films. The previous threat, the mining ship (!) Narada, was a huge ass ship that blew away anything that came near it. Prior to that The Scimitar was a huge ass overpowered ship that could blow away anything. Boring.
Wish they had mixed in there something more along the lines of Meyer's (who also looooooved Spock as hero) where it is more a battle than a blowout.
I didn't completely hate this movie though.
