And it's really in and of itself no worse than any other Trek film or better - they can all be picked apart for mistakes, inconsistencies, disappointing acting, writing, effects, etc.
Abrams tried to take Star Trek out of the little inbred box it had gotten itself into and took some liberties in doing so to open up that box a little. I don't mind that approach in the least, even if it arguably wasn't all a success.
He at least tried.
But only the long term will really tell if he's really achieved that. The box-office suggests initiall he has, but the film has only been out for a month so....that has to be maintained somehow.
