'Star Trek' safely does its job and is easily the first must-see action flick of the year.

Maintaining its reverence for the source material while employing an exuberant and clever script with one heck of a plot twist, Star Trek: Into Darkness is great fun and a more than worthy successor to the excellent first film.

One of the attributes this sequel to the prequel has going for it is a villain whose threat to mankind requires no prosthetics and/or makeup to freeze you in your seat.

Movie Dearest

Very well-made and exciting. Kirk's/Pine's bromance with Spock/out actor Zachary Quinto is further and nicely developed here, and the film's 3D effects are truly special.

I like this movie a lot, but the part with the tribble was totally stupid.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

..the epic scale of the action and amazing quality of the visuals, plus the sheer fun of hanging with trusted friends, puts this entry light years ahead of most competing blockbusters, even if intellectually it never leaves space dock.

Do we boldly go where no man has gone before? From a plot standpoint, the answer is a resounding no, but that doesn't mean that its is a boring retread of past storylines. It's an energetic, thrilling mash-up of past storylines.

Action set pieces interrupt with sonic booms, like clockwork, whenever the character development lasts more than a few minutes.

a complex plot that manages to balance character writing with slam-bang action sequences

American Profile

You don't have to be totally immersed in Trekkie lore to follow "Into Darkness," but a bit of basic Trek 101 would at least shed a little guiding light.

The Scorecard Review

It's definitely a fun action movie, but I'm ready for these films to boldly go in their own direction, instead of hanging on to the originals.

A tribute to excess, but in a good way, sort of.

Most of the logic has leached away from this movie, and with it half of the fun.

Shiny all over: the explosions (MANY), the destruction (MUCH) and the death toll (HIGH) feel like someone demanded this sequel "take it up a notch."

Screen-Space

Abrams works in scenes of friendship, honour, loss and loyalty, but the drama coasts on the emotional legacy of the series rather than creating any of its own heart or warmth.

I was comforted to see a warp drive spacecraft could be kickstarted like a 1912 Buick, and we were treated to not one but two desperate uses of the fabled "manual override."

At its best, Star Trek Into Darkness is Cumberbatch; at its worst, it's cumbersome.

Kam Williams
AALBC.com

A safe sequel which, while certainly engaging and entertaining enough to recommend, fails to live up to the franchise's daring, appointed mission 'to boldly go where no man has gone before.'
