Darkness never really works as anything because it doesn't have any purpose.
August 18, 2017
Even with his superior technology and an established commitment to innovative storytelling, Abrams might have been overly ambitious when deciding to halfway alter a classic.

Its greatest embarrassment is in trying to steal classic Star Trek moments without having a clue as to why those moments had meaning.
Full Review | Original Score: D
May 15, 2013
If the action scenes aren't up to par, and the passion isn't in evidence, then what is there? This movie is fine, and dull.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

Star Trek Into Darkness is a long, long way from a disaster, but it's hard not to feel that Abrams' mystery box turned out to be a bit empty this time out.

September 19, 2013
J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness is a bigger and much louder sequel, which sacrifices brains and character building for expensive spectacle.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Into darkness it should go, where no one can see it.

It goes quickly, it goes loudly and it goes spectacularly. The only problem is that it never seems to live up to the franchise's original mission statement and go boldly
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 9, 2013
A bad cover of your favourite song.
May 6, 2013
As brash, spectacular and energetic as its immediate predecessor, but without novelty on its side
June 27, 2013
Far from going where no one has gone before, this Star Trek is only interested in retreating along its old tracks.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
May 14, 2013
A totally stupid movie, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS falls apart as it goes, raining debris as it implodes like a building being demolished.
May 19, 2013
Abrams works in scenes of friendship, honour, loss and loyalty, but the drama coasts on the emotional legacy of the series rather than creating any of its own heart or warmth.
July 14, 2016
Star Trek Into Darkness is a high octane but messily plotted romp, with solid performances papering over plot holes you could pilot a galaxy-class starship through.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 2, 2013
That pioneer spirit? It's gone.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 17, 2013
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 12, 2013
Handsomely directed, often beautiful, full of impressive action, what it is in desperate search of is a good story - something it never finds.

May 3, 2013
The production gives the impression of a massive machine cranked up for two hours of full output; it efficiently delivers what it's built to do, but without style or personality.
May 17, 2013
More business than artful execution. Director J.J. Abrams just isn't a natural born storyteller, all high notes and no rhythm.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 7, 2013
Suggests someone painting by numbers with Herculian intensity, and the effect is hollow and dispassionate.
