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.

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!

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 had high expectations and they were met. The official movie critics don't know a good movie when they see one. I loved it! Plenty of action, laughs, tears, and tension. The actors from the first reboot were excellent once again and Benedict Cumberbatch was perfect as this movie's villain.
