Hollywood is getting better at sequels, and STID is a good example. We get to see all the same characters and developing relationships, which support the growth of the franchise. Additionally, we get to see what I think is actually a better story than the first movie, bringing back a familiar villain and a familiar story for lifelong fans. Full of action and giving us a revealing look at the characters, Into Darkness makes for a wonderful movie and a strong link in what I hope is a long chain of hits.

Great movie! If you're a fan of the franchise, you'll love it; if you're not, you will be. I actually had to suppress myself from crying at times!

If you are devoted to Star Trek, and want everything to fit precisely into the Star Trek universe, and previously established story, I gather some aspects of the plot will bother you. But, if you're like me, and just want to be entertained, and liked the first movie in this series, you'll have a great time. Lots of action, and energy, and character development.

Fast moving - action packed - a little painful at times for original series fans in my opinion - but a MUST SEE on the big screen - will not disappoint. Saw this in regular format.

I thought the movie was pretty good, but not better than the first one. At times the story line slows down a bit, but it keeps you interested enough to not feel like an actual 2hr movie. All in all, it was a good movie.
