It's good knowing so little

I grew up with Star Trek on the TV and falling in love with Doctor McCoy and Chekov but I can't call myself a fan. The new universe is something that I can become a fan of. I wish they would develop Chekov more. Everyone needs a little "Nuclear Wessels" in their lives. The move overall was great. I know nothing of Khan, but being a comic nerd I could relate him to a few Weapon X mutants from X-Men, which in turn made me comfortable. The inter play with characters was fun and enjoyable. Uhara showed some real balls in the movie. Bones was beyond amazing. Karl Urban was the best pick to bring back to character back to life. I'd go. My advice is to just have fun with it and remember it's a different universe. Nothing is 100% original and that we are inspired by everything that touches our lives.

A Great Action-Packed Ride

Star Trek Into Darkness is an action-packed sci-fi movie dealing with controversial issues of today. As a Star Trek fan, I was impressed at how many nods there were to older series and movies. The movie rarely has any slow down time. This sequel to the 2009 blockbuster deals more with your emotions than its predecessor. One can actually feel for the antagonist of this movie. Fans and non-fans alike should like this film. Yes, there are plot holes, so you'll just have to deal with those. All together I loved Star Trek Into Darkness.

Better than the first

As we didn't need to be introduced to the characters, Spock and Kirk were able to come into their own and we got to experience more of the story. Plus Benedict Cumberbatch played an AWESOME villian!

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.
