My husband is the real Star Trek fan he really enjoyed it said it was the best one yet. I enjoyed the movie itself but I could have just opt to see in without the 3D. I don't think there was enough of the 3D worth the movie price. Other than that I did enjoy it.

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!

The makers of this movie should be applauded, not only for making a great film, but in preserving the spirit of the Star Trek franchise. Each character carries the nuances and spirit of the classic characters. From Kirk's bravado, to Dr. McCoy's catch phrases, to Spock's logic, each character holds true to their predecessors portrayal of them.
The action throughout holds your attention but does not overshadow the story line. This film could have easily been a crutch for computer generated imagery, yet it is the characters who grab you and hold onto you. The 3D effects, although excellently done, do not up stage the film.
I think that Gene Roddenberry would be pleased with this interpretation of his vision.

Family is the core theme of this movie and that theme is handled perfectly. I've been watching Star Trek since 1966. I've seen all the spin-off televsion series, and I've read quite a few of the books. Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the others are old friends, and I have to praise J.J. Abrams for taking this crew of the Enterprise places their predecessors were unable to go. The tangental universe concept (though not new to Trek or science fiction in general) was absolutely the best method of reviving and invigorating Trek. With that in mind, "Into Darkness" took that concept to the next level. Revisiting characters from the original series is an inevitable necessity, and it was handled skillfully and respectfully. It was nice to know they'd encountered more than a few already. My heartiest kudos to the writers, producers, dorector, and actors for an enjoyable addition to Trek's journey.

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.
