In brief: Well, it definitely wasn't top-level, but it was a nice way to go out.
PUT THIS ON FILM!
In a nutshell: not the disaster a lot of fans were predicting (or prejudging) ahead of time, but not the magnificent success many people might have hoped for, either.
In brief: The best Trek film in fourteen years, possibly at all. See it, and see it on as big a screen as possible; you won't regret it.
