A blast into the future, with on-the-edge-of-your-seat scenes accentuated with forceful and powerful villains, and contrasted with moments of quiet revelation and humor. A symphony of science and modern art. Worth seeing more than once!

I may be the only one who was unimpressed by "Into Darkness." There were several rather large plot holes. The drama between Uhura and Spock was simply annoying (although it had a couple of comical moments, which would have been fine to leave in). There were far to many references to the previous films and most of them simply fell flat, adding no value to the story. The special effects were good, however they seemed to engineer in some extremely unrealistic situations for dramatic effect (I know it's a science-fiction film, but I've worked in ship-based engineering rooms and they went off the deep end in this film).
Into Darkness does have some good points. There is just enough comic relief (although the comic styling of "Bones" in this film is even more annoying than the previous film, and I didn't think that was possible. The special effects shots are extremely well done to the point you feel drawn into the movie. There is a good balance of character development and story.

twists and turns and familiar phrases
more action then should be allowed for a good story line...
and yet the story is not forgotten or buried, it's in your face and fun
a great retelling of an old story in a new and twisted way that makes your grab your seat like your at an amusement park on the biggest coaster they have
so yeah a great summer flick...
I hope the rest of my summer is this good

J.J. Abrams really has a nack for Star Trek. It is really cool how the stories are just a little different because of the timeline change when he re-booted the series. I hope he continues at the the helm of the movies an not have to wait 4 years.

This movie will have all Trekkies cheering! JJ Abrams has done a phenomenal job of updating storylines and character interactions from the 40+ year old Trek franchise. This is a must-see for adults and young adults. I will definitely be seeing it again!
