New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
The result is a stunningly nervy sequel that vaporizes any worries that Abrams’ terrific 2009 reboot was a fluke.

Markedly grander in scale, although never at the expense of its richly human (and half-human) characters, “Into Darkness” may not boldly go...

Star Trek Into Darkness offers much of what the fans expect and not much of what they don't. This character-driven vehicle is a...

Mostly "Meh" with a few good spots here and there

By bkwheel
After rebooting the Star Trek Universe with 2009's "Star Trek", JJ Abrams and team are back for another round. But, it seems this time, they started writing the script after marathoning TOS and the...

Non stop action/adventure

By Pook-a-Took
Aside from the slight lull towards the beginning of the movie, this show was beyond expectations. This sequel rivals Die Hard 2 (late 80's sequel). It is a fast, building 2 hours. Movie of the year...

Star Trek Set to Stun!

By MedRed
A great movie starts with a great trailer that can get you excited yet give away as little of the actual plot as possible. Kudos to J.J. Abrams for the excellent set up and execution! This movie...

A Stunning Sequel!

By jeff298
Abrams has struck just the right chord with these new treks. The characters turn in "essence" performances while bringing something genuinely new to the material. They constantly nod to the canon,...

Too familiar

Newbie Trekkies will enjoy this and everyone will enjoy the special effects. But veteran Trekkies will find this all too predictable because they have seen it before. The role reversal of Spock and...

Excellent Star Trek

By m33p
This was a visual and auditory extravaganza from the start to finish, I'd highly recommend the 3d version (unless you hate 3d). It was very well done, the story was fantastic, the acting was great,...
