Faces the same predicament almost every movie sequel encounters: how to top the first one.

This is mega-budget entertainment at its most fun and fantastic.

Star Trek Into Darkness is a hopeless, vindictive, immoral blight on the name Star Trek. If that doesn't make it the worst Star Trek movie, I don't know what does.

The resulting movie is quite a bit darker than its predecessor. This dark edge tempers things, making the movie less fun all around than its predecessor, but it is still an exciting and tension-filled sci-fi action film

An explosive science-fiction film with enough guts to open your eyes at Warp speed for two hours of pure entertainment. [Full review in Spanish]

Star Trek Into Darkness is a complacent sequel that's overly indebted to one of Trek's better offerings, but still moderately entertaining as a kinetic sci-fi action rollercoaster ride.

This belated sequel delivers more of the exciting goods, even if it settles for a slight, but noticeable downscale of impact.

Star Trek Into Darkness is an enjoyable and occasionally thrilling film.

Star Trek Into Darkness more than fulfills expectations and takes another step closer to hegemony in the Trek universe.

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).

It doesn't have the charm or the heart of the first, but it gives enough fuel to the franchise to warrant its existence.

Benedict Cumberbatch plays this film's villain as a complicated, enigmatic, and tortured soul.

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.

That Into Darkness reaches for relevance while ringing hollow should come as little surprise, but that doesn't stop it from being disappointing.

The film also maintains a running discussion, in both words and deeds, about personal responsibility, violence, and the evils of rushing to judgment in either direction, which is very in keeping with Trek's grounding principles.

The script turns out to be pretty predictable, especially for those who notice the real-life political parallels (which are almost impossible to miss).

Snappy dialogue, spry action sequences, vibrant special effects, solid characterizations and galaxy-induced intrigue paints Star Trek: Into Darkness as one the first summertime hits of 2013

Nobody on this film, cast or crew, does a bad job...it's just a question of whether they do a very good job, and that tends to be a hit-or-miss proposition.

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.
