Default Star Trek and Age Demographics

Okay. So that we have at least an idea of the appeal of the film to different age demographics. Noticed a lot of people asking questions about it so I figured a poll was in order.

I'm interested in what the results will look like.

I HATED the fact this movie was portrayed as Star Trek. When I let go of thinking I was watching Star Trek, it was a good action flick. I voted I hated it because I felt this question was in regards to the Trek aspects of the movie.

Over 50 and enjoyed it, but it's far from "perfect" Trek, not that there was any such thing.

22 loved the film, this from someone who has watched all the movies and shows. Good to see Star Trek return to its roots (TOS) and shed some of the Political-Correctness-Pansie-all-High-and-Mighty Next Generation onward.

Exactly the point. Star Trek is an unbelievable world. What makes it great is it's optimistic view of the future and of the selfless nature humanity adopted to survive and escape our own self-induced extintion. To look at it in any other way is, pardon the pun... Futile.

My g/f is 30 and has never seen any ST and still was asking me a ton of questions interested in getting into it. This "lackluster" trek film converted a non-watcher to our ranks. Just sayin.

I'd hardly describe this film as 'lackluster', in terms of Trek movies or movies in general.

I'm 21. Loved the movie.

Addendum: In the comments section, share the age demographics of the friends/family/co-workers you went to see it with and give us an estimate of each of their opinions of the film.
