we went to the sneak peek IMAX and 3D. It was great! Exciting. Fast paced and interesting. Good story line, still exploring the new friendship that is growing between Kirk and Spock and the others. Loved it!

Not original and NOT an homage

By starfleetmom

The story is a ripoff of a beloved classic, twisted, and infuriating to watch. The costumes, design, and especially the makeup is horrible. Many scenes and costumes are reminiscent of Star Wars. There is way too much Star Wars flavor to it. These guys got millions of dollars to make a movie and couldn't come up with anything original. Save your money.

Went to see a late-night early showing of Star Trek: Into The Darkness, and I have just 1 word and 1 number to describe it: AWESOME and 10! Yes, if you're a died-in-the wool Kirk & Spock fan (original series) you may have found this "alternate universe" version a little distasteful at first, but as this episode plays out, you'll see Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Karl Urban respectively as Kirk, Spock, Uhura and Bones all appear to fill these new shoes in exquisite fashion. None of the glaring faux pas of the 1st alternate universe trek- no! Lots of great dialog, action sequences and plot. Chris and Zach literally became that undefeatable duo and brought it home! Looking forward to the next installment (TV Series Maybe???) But overall- nicely done, bravo!

Star Trek Into Darkness - I loved it!

Beautiful cinematography, great action, awesome acting...Star Trek Into Darkness, I can't wait to see you again. Fully worth every penny to see it in IMAX 3D (and I'm not a huge 3D fan either). Benedict Cumberbatch is perfect as the villian (Lord, help me - those eyes, those cheekbones and that beautiful voice!). Chris and Zach were perfectly solidified as Kirk and Spock in this one. LOVED the nod to the original series too (won't say anything else due to spoilers)! All I can say is go, go go,go GO! I will definitely be going again, and maybe again after that! Original trekkies may have issues with the "new" versions of the set and costumes but my daughter's generation is now well onboard to continuing the fandom of Star Trek into the forseeable future.

Very unhappy Trekkie

I loved 2009's reimaginig but this just broke my heart. There is nothing Trek about this movie except in name. It is pure action spectacular with no story or heart. The movie looks gorgeous and is amazing in 3D but fails to be anything more than a visual feat for the eyes. In fact the only redeeming quality of this movie is Simon PEgg's Scotty. In one scene he tells Chris Pine's Kirk that Starfleet is about exploration and when did they become a military organization? My thoughts exactly. Pegg was the only voice of Trek in this horrible pieve of garbage. I cannot say anything else without giving the movie away but I will jsut say I found this to be a very unoriginal and uninspired movie. Lets hope a third outing will fair better.
