Narada's missile hit on the Enterprise's neck was visible for the rest of the movie, particularly in the warp core ejection scene. From dialogue in the movie, a second hit would have been the end - and the only thing that prevented it was Nero recognizing the Enterprise as Spock's ship.
One minor black mark on the exterior. Not a gaping wound the likes of what Vengeance could dole out without any effort.
And I really don't get "ohnoes teh second missel and werh dead" bit. For the entire rest of the movie they act as if the first missle hit did literally nothing to the Enterprise, everything works, all systems are online, the only person dead is the never seen doctor needed to make McCoy be promoted, basically they titled over a little, now everythings ok.
It's not like the shields did anything to save any other ship before, no indication that anything was actually protecting the Enterprise in either movie other than her own hull.
Just really did not buy that line.
