This was a "kick-***ride"!
Action, drama, tears and shocker!! Loved it!!
While kinda knowing what was building up, I loved the fact that there was an audible GASP from the audience upon the reveal!
Loved the twist and loved the play on it!! A few items could have been left off, however the build up for upcoming movies is all set!!
For all you haters out there . . . . Remember we are dealing with an Alternate reality now and things are going to be different!!
Loved this movie!!
Taking the kids this weekend, as Mom wanted to see this one and get the full impact before taking them - plus - mom wanted to drool over Chris Pine - without them seeing me!! LOL!
Must See!! Excellent!!

Talk about update vintage Star Trek! This was well done, exciting, a throwback to both the earlier movies and to the landmark TV series, and well worth viewing on the bigscreen. Can't wait for a sequel (again). Cumberpatch is the untimate cool bad guy but the ending, although a surprise, is somewhat predicitable. Think the frozen bodies will show up in a subsequent Movie?

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!

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!"
