Truly, truly, this sequel was intense, filled with action, and fine character development.
Almost felt like Abrams thought he was doing his last Star Trek movie ever, and thus he had to get everything he could into this one or lose any chance of doing so later.
Truly, what will Abrams do next time? Can there be a next time? What next?
Loved the character interactions; loved the interaction between the two Spocks; and I loved the overall interaction with the audience.
If someone wants to see a movie with ACTION, with THRILLS, and with SUSPENSE, then this is the one to see this summer.

Awesome second to the first movie. For those of us that remember the Wrath of Khan, the introduction of Khan in this way makes me wonder if we will see him again.

This was an amazing movie I highly recommend it to any true Star Trek fan out there. The story line was well developed the characters were well developed as well it was just very well thought out! if you have second thought between Iron Man3 and this movie FORGET IRON MAN!! seriously I would recommend you watch this movie instead they have a way better villain than the mandarin. All in all production and direction of this film was well built it is amazing in al aspect and you connect with all characters. I have to say that if JJ Abrams keeps up his winning streak with Stark Trek and Into Darkness I have a feeling that the third install ment will be a knock out!!

Wouldn't want to see the new Star Trek any other way! Great movie!! However it wasn't great waiting over 45 minutes after the first ended until they started the second one.

We were few at the double feature, but probably due to the short window of opportunity to purchase the tickets - all the better for those who attended!
Watching the two movies back-to-back allows for a direct comparison...and the second may be better than the first.
I will see Into the Darkness another time or two on the big screen (IMAX 3D tonight!) , very enjoyable movie. well pleased.
