I love Star Trek and I thought this movie was very well executed. While the film relied heavily on previous source material there was enough of a twist to make it feel refreshing and believable. This is an alternate timeline after all.
I liked it. It's something for the newer generation to get a foot hold into the world of comics. My 3 and 5 year olds were glued to the tv the whole time. I call that a win for future comic book readers and for the industry as a whole.
