Extraordinary

J.J. Abrams did an outstanding job on this movie, just as we have come to expect from him. The movie had a great balance of humor, action, drama and conflict, and with no less respect, the "return" of an old nemesis was awesome! I was definitely not disappointed with all of the actors' performances and I especially enjoyed seeing more of the development of Kirk and Spock's friendship. The movie is arguably appropriate for anyone except very young children given the violence.

Star Trek is Back

After the great reboot of Star Trek, this sequel raises the stakes even higher. Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan is phenomenal as well as rest of the returning cast. The movie was exciting and faced paced at all times. However some things in the story were kind of ridiculous and feels poorly written at time. Overall the movie was very enjoyable and the action and visual effects were definitely on par.

Loved it all, but....

Really liked the new Star Trek. Lots of action, edge of the seat stuff. Special effects, well, cgi has everyone on the same level now, but these were awesome. New villian is an a$$kicker. He also never blinks, definite sign of an evil guy. 95% original, but why, Mr. Abrams, did you do that 5% of not-so-original? You know what I'm talking about. And you have been doing so well. Not going to dwell on a negative when there is SO much positive. A true Trek fan will have no problem following this movie. Unlike Star Wars, which can be followed at any point, in any episode, from any year. Wars is for kids, Trek is for adults. So is this movie..... Loved it, go see it, then go see it again, just like I am about to do in 45 min....

Star Trek 2: The Wrath Of You-Know-Who!

By Mick Flix

The action is abundant, characters get to develop and the humorous dynamics between them really start to click here. Cool to see Peter "RoboCop" Weller on board as an admiral. The main villain is well-played by Benedict Cumberbatch, and all spoilers aside, you know who that character is by now. I liked this movie a lot, probably a bit more than JJ Abrams' first Trek, although I was a little irked by the blatant rip-offs from the 80's Trek 2 (dialogue, a climactic scene involving heroic sacrifice, and one really hilarious "Shatnerism" that I thought would work as a joke, but never imagined would actually happen in this film!) But hey, these new Treks are tons of fun and I dare say better than the last few Next Generation features. Looking forward to those new Abrams-helmed Star Wars movies. Geek it up!

Star Trek Into Darkness: A battle between good values and bad values

By SpiritMatter
Written May 17, 2013
The Creator's prime directive is life. The Creator sets the way of life and the way of death before us and asks us to choose life. "Behold, I set before you the way of life and the way of death." (Jer 21:8 NKJ) Kirk is tested at Starfleet and on a primitive planet and both times chooses life over the dead traditions of men. Kirk respects the human rights of his neighbor equal to his own divinely endowed rights. Kirk has rightly chosen life. Khan believes his rights are superior to his neighbors and this gives him the right to force them to conform or to kill them. Khan, like evil Cain, chooses the way of death. Star Trek Into Darkness is a great adventure and moral play.
