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!

Terrific entertainment. There have been some real losers but this is NOT one of them. My boyfriend (we are in our mid fifties) is definitely NOT a Trekkie and even he said it was a great movie. Lots of action, plot twists, fun between our beloved characters, etc.
I have not been to a 3D movie in so long that I was amazed and frankly distracted in the beginning. But after a while I got used to it and enjoyed it.
I would have loved to have seen it in IMAX but I am Deaf but the closed captioning system does not work in the IMAX theaters! I am happy they have CC.

I've always been a trekkie, trekker, what-have-you. I have to admit that I really want JJ Abrams' revamp of the franchise to work. With the scale back of all of the spinoffs television shows, the movies are the only thing to look forward to. Without giving anything away, Into Darkness has a couple of scenes that even if you don't care for Star Trek, you've got to end up teary-eyed. The main characters are still be created and I'm sure will reach a perfect blend if the movie series can make a decent enough run. On a side note: the Abrams signature lens flares didn't bother me on my first viewing in Imax, but it really bothered me in regular 3D. To the Star Trek series, I can only say "Live Long and Prosper!"

I loved this movie so much, I had to go see it again. The story line continues to follow the original series, while also allowing for variations due to the return of future spock in the 2009 film. The graphics were absolutely amazing and breath taking, and the story had me completely emotionally engaged. If you enjoy Star Trek, this film is a must-see!

Something for everyone...Trek fans and newbies. Lot of surprises...see it in a good theater as it sounds and looks terrific. I would forego the 3D, not worth it...save 3D for a Pixar film or something brighter.
