Combination of a love letter to long time Star Trek fans who will get the homage references, an exciting action movie with big time effects for those new to Star Trek.

If you are a Trekkie some of the characters and plot twists are going to be very familiar. The movie left you with the feeling you were back to the beginning.

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.

Really Awesome!

I have read that some Star Trek purists didn't think this series needed a reboot and hate these. I thought the first one from 2009 was awesome seeing all the characters much younger as they were learning their way. "Into Darkness" keeps that same floundering youthful confidence of the last one. I saw this in 3D/XD and the film industry is totally dialing in this 3D technology. It was excellent! Great script, acting and special effects!

Can't tell you all the things I loved about this movie without giving away some great surprises. Saw it in IMAX 3D with a full theater of folks who caught the references to the original series and let themselve just enjoy the ride.
