I saw it May 15th in Imax 3D and wow!!!! I am an old school fan going back to STO and TAS. This reboot is awesome. It tips its hat to the old while moving forward with the new. I like how they show major historical events still happen but with new unexpected twists. To the fans that like to know the back story, go read the graphic novel that leads up to the movie. For me, it is not a question of if I will buy the DVD, just a matter of when. I can't help but wonder if the movie premiered this week as a nod to the 'forgotten' U.S.S. Enterprise CV-6 that was commissioned May 12, 1938. May there always be an Enterprise not just to protect us, but also allow us to hope and dream. The name represents so many different aspects to so many different people. Proof that the IDIC is true, alive and well. May the name Enterprise forever live long and prosper. Many thanks to everyone that was part of the film for the dedication at the end to our Military and Veterans.

Star Trek from the eyes of a non-Trekkie (But a Cumberbatch fan)

To be 100% honest I went for the simple fact that Benedict Cumberbatch was in the film. I'm a cumberbitch. I'm not a Trekkie. The film was good. I felt the plot was basically "get John Harrison." there was nothing beyond that. I also was a bit bored that it all took place on the enterprise (I have come to find out that is how much of the films are.) But the character development was good individuality. Benedict in my eyes was great and I just wish he could have done more fighting. Also the ending was a bit eh. I wasn't disappointed as much as let down for it goes from a high intense fight scene (which I had some issues with mainly hitting Harrison in the head wouldn't have knocked him out as seen in previous fights in the film) to a boring ending. But the nice thing was as a viewer you don't need to see the first film to understand the second (I would for background info). But I was happy with seeing Benedict.

Best Movie of the Year!

I was planning on going to this movie anyway, as I'm a Trekkie, but I won tickets through the Esurance give away on Facebook. My friend & I went to the 8 pm Imax 3D showing and we were blown away! Awesome graphics and a fantastic storyline made this a memorable experience. We loved the 3D effects, and the action kept us on the edge of our seats. If you only go to one movie this year, this is the one to see! In fact, I'm going again this weekend. As a sweet bonus we were given two posters as part of our Sneak Peek experience, and they are now proudly displayed in my cubicle at work! I STRONGLY urge you to go see this movie!!! LLAP

Will BLOW YOUR MIND.

Star Trek: Into Darkness blows its predecessor out of the water. The acting talents of Benedict Cumberbatch as John Harrison will. give. you. chills. The story is fast paced and never allows the viewer to get bored. For me, the movie was one constant heart attack; I saw this in IMAX 3D, and it is the ONLY way to experience this movie. You WILL feel it when ships crash, weapons fire, and while you're busy fighting off the adrenaline rush, the cast will make you laugh and cry at the same time. As a life-long Star Trek fan, I can honestly say: Gene Roddenberry would be proud. RUN, don't walk to see this movie. I'm going back tonight! (And probably Friday, too.)

This second movie by JJ Abrams is a real treat! The " surprise" was SO unexpected . A new twist from one of the original Star Trek movies.
