It was OK, I thought the 3D could have been much much better, just didn't look like very good 3D nothing came out to the audience and some things out of focus. I really think they should have had Will Shatner in there somewhere as they did Leonard Nimoy. That was a big mistake. Digital was pretty nice at times.
looks like they threw in parts of the series here and there. Some of the space scenes were good.
I will not rent the DVD nor see it again.

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!

Laughed, Jumped, Gazed at and applauded the Great job they did with casting and special effects! AMAZING in 3D !!!! Several times we were knocked back in our seats ans also Dazzled with some of the Awesome Action and Scenery shots throughout the entire movie. There were very little times that the 3D wasn't being used to its Max!!!
Highly rate this one for both the "Treky" and the Newbie because of the way it was written and and the way it makes reference to a lot of the older cast and stories..
BRAVO!!!!! A "MUST SEE" for ALL ages !!! Two Thumbs UP !!!

The Roller coaster of emotions experienced in this film were incredible. This film blew my mind with every scene. JJ Abrams out did himself again creating a beautiful film with amazing acting from the leads Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. Not only will I be seeing this film a second time in theaters, I will be preordering it as soon as I can!!!

This movie is well worth the cost for a 3-D movie!!! As a 25 year Trekkie veteran. JJ Abrams made up for his mistake of blowing up Vulcan in his first movie. The first movie was very good, but this new movie Into Darkness ROCKS!!! It takes a lot for me to give any Stark Trek movie that high a rating since some have been so bad like Star Trek V. That one was horrible.
So enjoy the action and adventure of the moive it is great...Plot is well thought out this time.
