Critic Reviews for Star Trek Into Darkness

All Critics (280) | Top Critics (54)

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

    May 20, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Happily, there's a good deal of fun if you like things crashing violently into each other and out of warp-drive at regular intervals.

    Top Critic
  • 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.

    May 17, 2013 | Full Review…
  • The conceptual sci-fi of the original series is nowhere to be found, though you might enjoy watching the skinny young actors approximate their counterparts from the 60s; Chris Pine is especially good as Captain Kirk.

    May 17, 2013 | Full Review…
  • While the action is often electric, it's the relationships that matter. That, and a lippy regard for a cultural legacy.

    May 16, 2013 | Full Review…
  • The film is, for whatever else it might be, one of the funniest of the Star Trek entries.
