Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Did somebody just reach through the space-time continuum and pull out a white rabbit?"
‑ Tom Charity,
"With Star Trek Abrams honors the show's legacy without fossilizing its best qualities. Instead, he's whisked it off to a planet where numbing nostalgia can't kill it, and where the future is still something to look forward to."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"For the first time in all my encounters with the Enterprise and the Federation, I actually cared about several of those important figures seated at the ship controls."
‑ David Keyes,
"A work of considerable technical expertise and workmanlike efficiency: It's uncanny how it hits every little pop culture note anyone could possibly expect from it."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"Get ready for a new influx of fans, Trekkers."
‑ Dave White,
"One of the most accessible and entertaining films of the year."
‑ Laremy Legel,
"The wit and youthful energy that's been infused into the new Star Trek should enable this venerable franchise to live longer and prosper more handsomely."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"A manically paced, profoundly affectionate and highly entertaining prequel to a cultural touchstone."
‑ Jeff Meyers, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"... it pleases me to report that the new film from Director J.J. Abrams pulled me (a Trek newbie) in like a Romulan tractor beam."
‑ Adam Ross, The Aristocrat
"Star Trek has needed this kind of face lift for years."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"The young cast is mostly callow and TV-bland and the special effects don't quite seem worth that hefty price tag, but overall this is a presentable addition to the franchise."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"In going back to tell the Enterprise story from the beginning, Star Trek presses collective emotional buttons people didn't even know they had. At its best, the effect is like seeing life panoramically, past and future, simultaneous and magnificent."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Fun, funny, exhilarating, and occasionally touching, Star Trek gives Gene Roddenberry's enduring sci-fi series a much-needed shot in the arm."
‑ Jason Buchanan, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Salutes the rich history of the franchise while avoiding any hint of hokey, by-the-book starch."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"Star Trek is a welcome return to the flippant, big-budget bonanza that exists purely for the spectacle,"
‑ Mike Edwards, What Culture
