Yes it was very good.
But it wasn't great. It had moments of brilliance and moments of extra cheese and the references flew thick and fast.
It certainly held truer to the original star trek than ever before, but it felt forced in some places and the truly brave calls were avoided.
Cumberbatch chews up the scenery, as does Peter Weller, shame about everyone else.
How is it that Jessica Alba even sounds like a bad actress? Flat and dull, seriously. Everyone else brings the right bits to the performance, even Ricky Gervais being well... Ricky Gervais. Overall entertaining, a bit violent and scary for the 4 year old, but right for the 7. Product placement galore and an amazing design aesthetic, only beaten by Oblivion and any Pixar film.
