Excellent, almost 2 1/2 hours and not one slow second. Probably one of the top 2-3 Star Trek movies made. I rate it excellent with however many stars are the maximum rating.

Saw STID last night with a bunch of people (some new to Star Trek and others eager to see this follow-up to the 2009 flick). If you enjoyed JJ's 2009 Star Trek, you're going to be thrilled with Into Darkness in 3D. It's action packed and visually stunning. The cast did a great job and you will want to see them again in a third trek! Overall we all agreed it's a great movie.

The first "new" Star Trek movie was fine with occasional nods to the original series. Star Trek Into Darkness is much more. I watched the original series during its original time on air. Now, I am fully invested in this new Star Trek universe. The characters are the same and yet different. The situations in the film have you thinking "ok, such-and-such is gonna happen now" and then you smile when the plot twist goes in a similar but different direction. That's what made the film fun for an old trek fan like me. There is plenty to make you think of the old series and yet there is much that will have you say "wow, that was different". There is plenty of action and suspense. The 3D was interesting, but not overwhelming. I think that the film stands by itself, but that people with some background will get a special kick out of it. Can't wait to talk to my friends about it.

The Star Trek franchise just keeps out doing itself. This Wrath of Khan reboot comes at you with warp speed action from beginning to end. It firmly establishes the Star Trek genre as it's own while giving homage to the original characters and story. A must see.

This movie was awesome. Being one of the original "Trekkies" I really enjoyed this movie. The interaction between the characters was perfect. The references to some of the incidents of the original series made me laugh. This movie kept me on the edge of my seat, Excellent job. I will definitely go to see this again and then get the DVD.
