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.

Went to the midnight showing. This is a fantastic movie, from beginning to end. Do yourself a favor and see it in 3D, you will not regret it. Also, if you go to ArcLight, La Jolla, Theater 7 is the largest theater (which I found out in reading reviews). :D

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.

This was definitely more action packed then the first and the characters/actors have gelled into a team. At first I wasn't a huge fan of the restart, but I'm enjoying how they are taking storylines from the original and seeing where they take them, but in the end they were destined to come together no matter what. The interplay was great and the writers definitely understood and incorporated the humor that was always found in the original series. Benedict plays a wonderful icy blue eyed villan, but is no contest to Chris Pine's baby blues. If you love/like Star Trek, you should just go and enjoy the ride!

I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It was what I was expecting and more. Fun, entertaining and exciting, well, I am a moderate fangirl. The 3D IMAX was totally worth it. There was lots of action and a terrific story. Spock and Uhura make a great couple.
