Second, like The Dark Knight Rises and like the previous movie this will be an action movie with a mediocre story. If you expect nothing else you will probably leave the theatre satisfied. If you expect a Star Trek movie, i.e. a sci-fi movie with a decent story, you will probably be disappointed.
This is exactly how I see it. I am keeping my expectations at fun threshold only, which I am fairly confident it will fufill. I do not expect a fabulous story/plot, but I can deal.
