I am not a big Trekkie fan.. i m noob about this franchise compare most people out there. I am more of a Star Wars fan..
I watched the previous Star Trek movie actually and wasn't impressed with it. However, since it's a major franchise, I want to see how it perform..
After watching this sequel, I left the cinema in awe. Off-the-seat stuff!! Bravo JJ Abrams.
To think he is gonna helm the Star Wars movies.. one can only wonder how it's gonna be. Looking forward to see then.
I think non-Trekkie fans would appreciate this movie.. that's no need to go through the whole franchise to get the feel of it.
Giving it 8/10
If you have to ask, i rate it higher than Iron Man 3.
On a lighter note, Zachary's Spock reminds me of Sheldon (of big bang theory fame)... just without being too annoying and obnoxious. HAHA.
