As one reviewer puts it,
"A bad cover of your favorite song."
"Abrams’ flashy movie, made for idiots, or at least an imaginary constituency of the same, a crowd who don’t expect and wouldn’t appreciate a flick that demanded any psychological investment from them, is an awkward confection; part post-9/11 morality tale (and you thought we were past all that), part broad comedy and part bleak revenge picture. The golden thread that runs through these disparate themes is that dusty old Hollywood cliché, the importance of family; though in a sign of the times, showing how far we’ve moved since the days we could infer the Enterprise crew were a space brood, it’s said openly here and often. Whoever Abrams imagines is paying to see this thing, he doesn’t think they’re fans of the internal monologue."

Folks who hold current, crap ass tv series as the gold standard for story content and acting will enjoy this movie.
