A Return to Good Form...

I disliked STAR TREK: GENERATIONS greatly. However, I love STAR TREK as a franchise and decided not to give up on it. I watched this movie and was glad I didn't. This isn't the best STAR TREK film (it places after all of the originals), but it is great, quality entertainment with great role models for kids.
The film is much more intense than previous installments, but isn't significantly more violent. Granted, when the violence does occur, it is more graphic. There are severed limbs, cracked necks, etc., but not a lot of blood. There is one brief conversation as to whether Mr. Data has been programmed to experience "pleasurable feelings", but it isn't graphic. There is infrequent profanity as well: "bull**it", and "godd**n".
