To start off, I really liked the first Star Trek movie by J.J., so my expectations for this one were pretty high. Man, I did not know it would be so much more than what I expected! This is what a summer blockbuster should be like, and I believe this will set the bar for future ones to come. Everything about it, maybe not so much the acting (which was good just not oscar worth of course), was phenomenal! It is a movie that anyone over the age of 13 can and should see, since everyone that age and up can enjoy this one!!
GREAT MOVIE, GO SEE IT!

A great movie starts with a great trailer that can get you excited yet give away as little of the actual plot as possible. Kudos to J.J. Abrams for the excellent set up and execution!
This movie had the right amount of everything...drama, comedy, seriousness, cheesiness, action, acting, cinematography, costumes, action (deserves a double mention), special effects, set design...everything!
As predictable as some parts were, other parts seemed to warp out of nowhere to great effect. Into the Darkness seems both familiar and fresh. Some elements definitely echo The Wrath of Khan even though this story takes place parallel to that one in an alternative universe sort of way.
This movie shows that the Star Trek franchise has legs and plenty of room to stretch them into future amazing movies.
The beginning of the credits has cool planetary scenes (especially in 3D). There's nothing after.
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

As a diehard Trekker from the time the original series first aired in the 1960s, I'm always more than picky about anything newly produced. I did not need to worry about this film, however, as it is the best of all things Star Trek. By far, the best Trek offering of all! I really enjoyed this production. You will not be disappointed.

I got the tickets for my husband who is a fan and he wants to go again. The special effects were awesome and the sound system blew me away. I didn't understand parts of the movie but I am not a fan and so Star Trek fans will be enlightened by things that are revealed.
