Alright I just got in from seeing "Star Trek: Into Darkness" and I am stoked! I think this one is better than the first. From the opening scene all the way through it is a thrill ride. How I want to talk about a revelation that I was not aware of until it was said in the movie. But I don't want to be a spoiler. For this one, spend the extra for IMAX 3D because it is visually stunning and you will be dodging arrows and other flying debris! All the way through I had this pegged as a 10, but they did something that I didn't like so I will take it down to a (9), but that is just my opinion. This movie is GREAT FUN!

The Imax 3D experience was excellent but for two items: The screen in Highland Village is smaller than the standard IMAX screen and the sound was almost deafening at times. The only way that I was able to enjoy the movie was to partially block the sound with tissue paper. The movie itself was great. The newest Star Trek movies are the best yet and 3D added to the adventure. Great production.

IMAX 3D is the ONLY way to see this movie. JJ Abrams delivers a spectacular cinematic experience in this latest installment of the rebooted Star Trek. The shots are so awesomely beautiful, you'll have multiple eyegasms. For Star Trek geeks like me, this is sci-fi porn, with one great 'money shot' after another! As for the story: the writers have had a field day with this alternate universe they created in the last film. We are introduced to an old villain in a new way, which causes the story to evolve differently. We even get to see Spock go commando! The film is just non-stop action all the way through, while retaining all of the heart, loyalty, and friendship that made the franchise successful through the years. My only criticism is the unnecessary scene on the bridge of the Enterprise. But if I tell you what it is, I'll spoil it for you! Bottom line, "Go see this film!"

Great movie with just one draw back. The over did it a bit with the references to the original Star Trek movies. But the rest of the movie was so good, it pretty much made me over look it. Will see it at least two more times in theaters.

I have been a trekker since the 1960s and have enjoyed all crews. Enjoyed them all, I used to work with Paramount on promotions started back when Spoke died. I even taught a class on the Physics and Social Interactions of Star Trek and Star Wars.
Now we have chapter 11 and JJ Abrams has continued Gene Roddenberry's style. To rave about the movie would be an understatement. To nitpick items in the movie I did not care for just downright stupid. To miss or badmouth "Star Trek: Into Darkness" simply means you never understood what the Star Trek Universe was all about. It is a masterpiece and I am very happy to hear JJ say he will either direct or produce chapter 12. It is ashamed we have to wait 2 1/2 years to be thrilled to death yet again. The logical thing to say it "WOW." Must see in IMAX 3D because this is exactly why IMAX was created in the first place. FYI: NASA today announced it has concept work into Warp Drive.
