Star Trek Into Darkness, the second film in JJ Abrams' reboot of the franchise, continues the action & excitement generated by the first installment in 2009. The entire cast returns and builds on the chemistry established in the first film. Pine & Quinto are great as Kirk & Spock, Zoe Soldana kicks butt as Uhura and Simon Pegg & Karl Urban once again shine as Scotty and Dr McCoy. But the addition of Benedict Cumberpatch as... John Harrison is a huge upgrade as the film's main villain over Eric Bana's rather forgettable Nero in the first film. Cumberpatch dominates the screen in every scene he's in. Pine, Quinto, Urban, et al are all fine actors, but Cumberpatch raises the bar at every opportunity. The special effects and action are top notch and the plot, although set in the 23rd century, echoes events in our current times. If you're a Trek fan, you probably don't need any encouragement to go see this movie, but even if you're not, it's worth checking out.

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!

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.

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 was worried that they would never get around to making a second film, but as soon as I saw the trailer I knew that they had done it again. Benedict Cumberbatch was a great villain, And Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto definitely held down their roles. I loved the small tributes to the old movies and tv show. This movie was also worth going to see in 3D unlike most films these days. I'd definitely go and see it again.
