Star Trek Into Darkness Reviews
September 24, 2020
This is mega-budget entertainment at its most fun and fantastic.

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.
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).

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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
