In terms of sheer spectacle, there's no denying that it delivers. For all the build-up, hype, and hope leading up to the film, it's just a shame there isn't a whole lot more.

The effects are exhilarating, even in these jaded post-3D days, and there are enough action set-pieces, humour and character development to distract from a plot that isn't exactly sci-fi's final frontier.

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

Cumberbatch, with his otherworldly aura of menace and basso profundo rumble of voice, makes a worthy and memorable Big Bad in the annals of Trek lore.

It's generally a lot of fun, but it's exhausting, and the busyness only somewhat disguises the fact that the story doesn't entirely make sense.

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

Not as audacious or exciting as its predecessor but this sequel is still a fun summer ride.

...a terminally perfunctory followup that just barely gets the job done...

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

Either reinvent or stick to the source material, don't try to have your fun both ways. It doesn't work.

... a summer film that dimly reminds viewers of what it used to be - and could be again - while still being little more than a rollercoaster ride.

There's really very little to complain about in this warp-speed sequel.

so enjoyable that it becomes easy to forget that virtually everything in the film is a riff or spin on something we (including only casual Star Trek fans) have already seen

Thrilling if not exactly groundbreaking fun...yet something is missing this time around.

Moment to moment, it's as entertaining, rousing and visually impressive as any recent science-fiction action epic, but the script is cratered with illogical motivations and plot holes large enough to swallow Classic Trek's Doomsday Machine.

It feels a little "been there, done that" but it still entertains.

'Star Trek' safely does its job and is easily the first must-see action flick of the year.

Maintaining its reverence for the source material while employing an exuberant and clever script with one heck of a plot twist, Star Trek: Into Darkness is great fun and a more than worthy successor to the excellent first film.
