Star Trek Into Darkness is an enjoyable and occasionally thrilling film.
November 19, 2019
Star Trek Into Darkness more than fulfills expectations and takes another step closer to hegemony in the Trek universe.
August 13, 2019
Abrams seems to be able to bounce a surprisingly dense and unwieldy sci-fi narrative around a bunch of well-realised and colourful characters (a feat for pulpy material).

Benedict Cumberbatch plays this film's villain as a complicated, enigmatic, and tortured soul.
June 8, 2019
As if everyone involved was just going through the motions, playing Star Trek dress-up but ignoring the true essence of what they're trying to embody.

Gleefully scavenges familiar moments from prior iterations of the brand, but with none of the accrued emotional heft.
February 26, 2019
That Into Darkness reaches for relevance while ringing hollow should come as little surprise, but that doesn't stop it from being disappointing.

August 30, 2018
There's a mundane theme running under the adventures of alien exploration and a villain who will not be named: styles of contemporary office management.

Does a good job of building things up before descending irredeemably into a place where no one can hear you scream.

March 5, 2018
This movie is action PACKED.
October 31, 2017
Star Trek Into Darkness finally gives the talented Cumberbatch the chance to show Hollywood what he can do on the big screen, and, boy, does he seize it with both hands.
