This movie had a wonderful story true to Star Trek fans and brings those familiar characters to life for the 21st century Star Trek fans. Lots of action, lots of getting to know the characters even more, and lots of great "feelings" for each and every character. As always, the great humor you expect from Star Trek characters without getting campy. It's a MUST SEE for any Sci-fi fan and a MUST MUST SEE for any Star Trek Fan.. awesome awesome movie!!!!!

Despite a few instances of retreading TOS cliches, Abrams has proven the retooled franchise really works and will survive. Cumberbatch is spectacular, and the other actors have captured the spirit of their predecessors.

Star Trek Into Darkness, the second film in JJ Abrams' reboot of the franchise, continues the action & excitement generated by the first installment in 2009. The entire cast returns and builds on the chemistry established in the first film. Pine & Quinto are great as Kirk & Spock, Zoe Soldana kicks butt as Uhura and Simon Pegg & Karl Urban once again shine as Scotty and Dr McCoy. But the addition of Benedict Cumberpatch as... John Harrison is a huge upgrade as the film's main villain over Eric Bana's rather forgettable Nero in the first film. Cumberpatch dominates the screen in every scene he's in. Pine, Quinto, Urban, et al are all fine actors, but Cumberpatch raises the bar at every opportunity. The special effects and action are top notch and the plot, although set in the 23rd century, echoes events in our current times. If you're a Trek fan, you probably don't need any encouragement to go see this movie, but even if you're not, it's worth checking out.

This is a great movie. I just love the 3D. Very enjoyable, especially if you are familiar with
the other Star Trek movies. Excellent acting and special effects. You should definitely go see it!

The movie brings back some old characters, and adds some interesting twists in this alternate universe. Loved the 3D, the action, and the effects were great. Really liked the story, but am ready for some original plot lines.
