If the action scenes aren't up to par, and the passion isn't in evidence, then what is there? This movie is fine, and dull.

Star Trek Into Darkness is a long, long way from a disaster, but it's hard not to feel that Abrams' mystery box turned out to be a bit empty this time out.

J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness is a bigger and much louder sequel, which sacrifices brains and character building for expensive spectacle.

Into darkness it should go, where no one can see it.

It goes quickly, it goes loudly and it goes spectacularly. The only problem is that it never seems to live up to the franchise's original mission statement and go boldly

A bad cover of your favourite song.

As brash, spectacular and energetic as its immediate predecessor, but without novelty on its side

Far from going where no one has gone before, this Star Trek is only interested in retreating along its old tracks.

A totally stupid movie, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS falls apart as it goes, raining debris as it implodes like a building being demolished.

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.

That pioneer spirit? It's gone.

For all its chasing and falling and fighting-and the movie supplies a great deal of each-Star Trek Into Darkness is at its best when the Enterprise crew are merely bickering and bantering among themselves: less space opera than soap opera.

Handsomely directed, often beautiful, full of impressive action, what it is in desperate search of is a good story - something it never finds.

The production gives the impression of a massive machine cranked up for two hours of full output; it efficiently delivers what it's built to do, but without style or personality.

More business than artful execution. Director J.J. Abrams just isn't a natural born storyteller, all high notes and no rhythm.

Suggests someone painting by numbers with Herculian intensity, and the effect is hollow and dispassionate.

Jettisoning the franchise's optimistic, socially aware sci-fi, not to mention character development or a logical plot, Darkness turns out to be any Vulcan's worst nightmare: Team America: World Police with Tribbles.

[Abrams] might as well have made Fast and Furious 7: In Space No One Can Hear You Drift.

The only darkness here - besides the dingy-looking images dimmed by 3-D glasses - is the murky plot, which is as silly as it is arbitrary.
