Such a shame. Poor writing again ruins what could have been an amazing film. Such a great cast and nice visuals but the horrid plot and complete lack of a sense of wonder that should be part of Trek tanks it.

nto Darkness has Abrams directing in full force, which allows it be big summer fun featuring the same great chemistry from the first one.

Wow, action, humor, moral ambiguity, goofy situations, snappy zingers, a great villain, lots of good music, weird homages to the old films, and an amazingly explosive beginning. This movie is mostly about the makeup and dazzling effects so in 3D, it's fun for everyone. It's also quite a story, with little segments that you don't notice until you watch it 2 or 3 times. I especially liked Mr. Scott (Simon Pegg) he was great! There was some good acting by John Cho's character, but this one was mostly a showcase for the "villain" which was alright but kind of silly and hokey. Khan, the main baddie, was motivated by weird family based integrity, like all terrorists, it was a sad way to portray a clever creative villain - but for people under 30 years old, it's probably the greatest most intelligent story of 2013, so I appreciate that it can appeal to 30 year olds and 31 year olds as a sci-fi masterpiece. I just don't think that anyone over 50 can really say that, maybe someone that old will just find this dumb fun, and disappointing. It definitely was visually exciting and the 3d was mindblowing.

Nice movie, good story line
July 5, 2013
While it boasts flashy CG, a solid cast, and beautiful art design, all of these are utterly wasted on a stupid, ugly, unoriginal, and pandering script. The film resembles Star Trek on only a superficial level, dumbing down everything from the universe, the plot, and the characters to only their bare-minimum silhouettes. While there has been worse Star Trek films (arguably), there hasn't been any this shallow. If there's one thing screenwriter Roberto Orci is good at, it's shoehorning references to better works into his scripts. If there's one thing he's bad at, it's writing.

Too much action, not enough character development and plot. Not bad as an action film, not good as a Trek film.

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS
The new franchise is not too bad...and the new 'Star Trek into Darkness' does not fail to entertain and to thrill new audience.
It is a great adventure movie, with a memorable opening and a memorable villain...the infamous KHAN!!!
In a way, this is a remake of many Star Trek movies. For those who know the original movie series will definitely see how J.J. Abrams pays homage to some unforgettable dialogues of the previews original series by remaking literally upside down those timeless moments.

Even though all the characters are well known and clichéd from the original saga, the film is very absorbing interspersed with light-fun moments.
It is a new generation franchise that aims to a more action and CGI spectacle, rather than the thoughtful and nuanced way that the Original series woven into its philosophical and sociological commentary.

That said, the new 'Star Trek into Darkness' adventure is fun to watch..unless you really hate lens flares

Another triumh by Master Abrams. A wonderful sequel that keeps you at the edge of your seat for two hours of amazing spectacle. From the visual effects to Bennedict Cumberbatch´s performance as Khan (I hope he returns), Star Trek Into Darkness is a must see.

It's Wrath of Khan 2.0! Pretty enjoyable though even without Reliant or ear bugs.
May 21, 2013
JJ Abrams, you're freaking dead to me. You have successfully dismantled and defiled the entire Star Trek franchise with one movie. You are lower than scum, and deserve to be excommunicated from the film industry. Star Trek fans, set phasers to kill! The enemy is closer than you think...

This was an awesome film and my favorite of 2013.Even better than the first Star Trek film.
July 26, 2014
Although it's not as good as the first Star Trek, Benedict Cumberbatch deliver a stellar performance, which will make this one memorable. If you can forgive some holes here and there, then you'll have a good time.
April 16, 2013
So looking forward to seeing this.

Star Trek II was quite entertaining but is a movie you will likely never see again. Basically a carbon copy of the original, down to exact scenes and actions, Star Trek II fails to capitalize on Cumberbatch's significant talent and presence and instead delivers what is essentially two hours of mindless sci-fi action, interspersed by what is arguably the worst instance in the history of shameless nude scenes. Suspend disbelief and prepare for lens flare as Abrams pumps out what is just a cut and chopped version of the first movie.
July 23, 2014
Not really STAR TREK, but entertaining none-the-less. Benedict Cumberatch is dead-on as 'Khan.'
May 23, 2013
After a very promising start in 2009's "Star Trek," this movie is a major disappointment. Part of the thing I loved about the first film is seeing how Iowa punk Jim Kirk becomes the legendary Captain James T. Kirk. Kirk's journey was immature jerk to a leader was the crux of the first film. Within the first ten minutes of "Into Darkness," all that character development was completely wiped out. We learn that Kirk hasn't changed a bit from the previous movie, so the rest of the film feels like a retread. Add to that the Khan "build-up" (really, what was the point of keeping his identity a secret? Wouldn't that be a selling point?) and I just didn't come away with the same euphoric feeling I got from its predecessor.

okay so i don't know if it's because these films are overly hyped as "good" by filmmaker standards, or if i'm just not an action person, but i always find myself underwhelmed. with the last one, i assumed it was because it was trying to establish the characters and set the world, but this film felt just as light and fluffy. i was never really at the edge of my seat because the tension felt artificial and forced. there's always 2 seconds left before something explodes - and i guess that's just action film genre-writing, but maybe that's not for me. regardless, as far as action films go, this was fun to watch (though sometimes because of it's preposterousness), and benedict cumberbatch was a real treat, as always :)

Not as good as its predecessor, Into Darkness fulfills the expectations of a futurist, exciting and explosive movie.
June 28, 2014
Funtastic entertainment for the entire family!
