Excellent use of 3D! It added to the scenes. We watched in IMAX 3D and the theater had the sound up a bit too high for the number of people in the theater. Great action scenes with beautiful visuals. The only negative that I saw was that they were messing with a future plot line and future movies will have to deal with plot conflicts which usually lead to unbelievable and awful tricks to smooth things out.

I'm not a really great fan of Star Trek series BUT this is one of the few movies that really must watch it!, seriously the CGI's looks great to, "no lens flares saturated".

Picking up with the characters established in the (2009) Star Trek relaunch, the Star Trek Into Darkness sequel offers more of the same. Hot tempered Kirk, By the Rules Spock and all the rest. I would give the move a 4 out of 5 stars.
The story is not too complex, yet offers both some unexpected twists and some actual character growth and development. There are some spectacular special effects scenes and a lot of action, most of the time. There a few slow spots to expand the plot but not too distracting.
My only two negatives this time around are 1.) The excessive lens flare (light reflected towards the viewer) gets very distracting during the many phaser/gun fire-fights and when it appears at random during other scenes. It looses it's dramatic effect by being overused.
2.) Some of the fight and action scenes are so fast that they can be a little hard on the viewer.
Still A Worthy summer adventure for all - SEE IT IN 3D!

3D in this case was AMAZING.The IMAX crystal clear pixelation was FANTASTIC! MUST SEE in 3D IMAX!!! Really enjoyed the movie. The visual effects were phenomenal.
I'm so happy to see the series again, and remade so thoughtfully. The actors do GREAT justice to this film. Kudo's to each and every one of them. They are PERFECT!
We're buying this one to add to the first, definitely.

Excellent movie. I enjoyed the 3-D, but the quality wavered a bit at times. Engaging plot, good to see more reintroduced characters, and of course, the main cast nailed their portrayals, with special kudos to Karl Urban. I'm not sure how Peter Weller's character sired a daughter with a British accent, but that's splitting hairs. I would like to hear the story behind the recurring scenes of blowing leaves, if there is one besides exploiting the 3-D effect.
There was plenty of story and depth of characters, which gave the audience ample movie experience above and beyond just watching a big screen video game.
This is a movie for Star Trek fans. If you're not, take one with you.
I can't say more without spoiling something, so I'll just say, "Go see this movie!"
