I'm a Star Trek fan so it may be a bit biased; but this is the best movie I have seen I several years. It is the best Star Trek movie has a great storyline and I love the appearance of Khan. Movies like this tie up loose ends where questions from previous shows came up.

The movie was at the least as good as the first Abrams reboot, maybe a little better. Lots of great special effects and a new acceleration to warp signature graphic that was pretty cool. Without giving to much away, it is no secret, most have figured out the bad guy is Khan just in the altered timeline Abrams created with the reboot. The story arc was really better than I expected as they had to create a new story without messing to much with, in my opinion, the best elder trek movie, The Wrath of Khan.
For Trek fans a must see, also pretty high on the go to list for general sci fi/fantasy fans. Is it the best movie of the summer, we'll have to see, I think it edged out Iron Man, but there are alot of movies I'm excited to check out that if played out for 2 hours anything like their trailers will be very good.

I went and saw this last night and it was amazing. The acting was great, love the visual effects and as a person who grew up watching all the shows (some in rerun, I am not that old) and all of the movies I am very pleased with how J.J. handled the reboot and still holds the characters true.
I have to say that I love IMAX movies and 3D I can take or leave. The glasses, however, were a bit crap. They have offered way better ones before not sure if these were from the theater or film company. This is my only complaint. :)
This was a great movie experience and I am ready to go back and see it again.

I loved the first of the new Star Trek movies - I've seen it, wholly or partly, about five times. The reviews of "Into Darkness" were rather luke warm, so that's what I was expecting: a lot of bang bang. But this story was tightly organized and the emotions raised by the lead characters of Kirk and Spock were real for me. The 3D didn't seem quite right at first, but that sense faded and I was soon into the picture. Weaknesses for me: the editing was a little fast paced - flickflickflick - and there wasn't much development of characters other than Kirk and Spock.
