This belated sequel delivers more of the exciting goods, even if it settles for a slight, but noticeable downscale of impact.
November 27, 2019
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).
August 7, 2019
It doesn't have the charm or the heart of the first, but it gives enough fuel to the franchise to warrant its existence.
July 30, 2019
Benedict Cumberbatch plays this film's villain as a complicated, enigmatic, and tortured soul.
January 26, 2019
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.
November 17, 2018
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
November 2, 2018
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.
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.
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.
September 5, 2017
Pulling off the trick of being both irreverent and Trekkie-pleasing, JJ Abrams effortlessly orchestrates massive action set pieces, a galaxy of 'cor look at that' CGI effects and well-modulated character scenes.
June 17, 2016
The film is pretty spectacular, with enthralling action sequences and stellar special effects (when you can make them out through director J.J. Abrams' omnipresent lens flares).
June 14, 2016
A well-made, somewhat serious-minded adventure flick is a rare thing, even one that does not seem quite as deliciously new as J.J. Abrams's 2009 reinvention -- which is merely to say that it is not my new favourite popcorn flick of all time.
June 14, 2016
At the core of Abrams' brilliant rebranding, beyond the astute and well-measured use of high-powered special FX, is the inspired casting of Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto as the younger Kirk and Spock.
June 14, 2016
An exhilarating and often moving addition to the franchise.
June 14, 2016
Whilst it arguably lacks the fresh energy of the first outing, Abrams here seems content to make minor tweaks to a winning formula, all the while keeping his sci-fi space opera accessible to all.
June 14, 2016
Into Darkness is an enjoyably solid effort, but it suffers from a lack of the innovation and inspiration of its predecessor (or indeed of Abrams's best work on TV).
June 14, 2016
Apart from the grand set designs, which are stunning and seen through the blue hue of lens flare, the characters are the strongest asset here and are brought to life by the stellar cast.
