This is the second best summer movie so far this year I mean the visual effect's are good and they is a part with Spock and kirk right at the end which is really sad.

Not nearly as good as the first JJ Abrams Star Trek movie but it is full of action and progresses the franchise along nicely. Sci Fi fans will appreciate it and action fans will enjoy it. I am disappointed, though, that it couldn't match the first one's time travel story. Still a solid entry.

I thought this was every bit as good as the star trek movie that came before it. It's a really good sci-fi, action, adventure movie. Recommend watching it.

Star Trek (2009) was to me, what a lollypop to a toddler was. It had everything I wanted to see out of a Star Trek film, plus more: anyone could enjoy it for being entertaining, smart sci-fi.
Star Trek: Into Darkness is not the case. It was very heavily focused on many minor aspects of the first one.
Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are free-flowing once again in their roles. Especially Quinto this time around. A lot of drama was added to the character and all characters in general, and that is both a good feature and a bad one.
You see, this movie passes itself off as an absolute summer movie. And I am totally irritated by the way the film chose to play out. Nothing in this movie is portrayed as promised, Benedict Cumberbatch was good, but forgettable, the story is so generic and easy …

Shaking stuff! Sparkling chemistry: Spock and Kirk You win me over. If you need a nicely poised space-adventure with interesting twists then, into darkness is a big Yes! Always been a fan of the Star Trek series, here I get a rousing and solid action film. Chris Pine, Quinto and Saldana reprise their role. They are now facing a dreadful enemy Harrison, the deadly Cumberbatch. Harrison kills some star fleet crew members including their general. Captain Kirk and his team are on a mission to catch Harrison. But there is a looming danger ahead. Some surprises ahead! Abrams goes smoother with action meaningful and sensible for the first round. But then when the ultimate twist is given, movie takes a next move. The big space action adventure is solid. Not quite appreciable, but damn good. It …

It starts with Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) saving a planet. In London, there was a bomb that killed a number of people so a manhunt ensues for John Harrison/Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch). The ability to create tension, comic relief, fantastic plot, screenplay skillful camera direction and visual effects were the picture's highlights. Some insightful lines: “You think you can't make a mistake!" - Admiral Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood), "You didn't feel anything. You don't care." - Uhura (Zoe Saldana). "Is there anything you wouldn't do for your family?" – Khan and “It’s nice to have a family.” - Dr. Carol Wallace (Alice Eve). Action sequences were fantastic and the director does a great job with helping the audiences be involved with the characters …

I doubt they cut out the lens flare - that's his style but hopefully they cut out the bad&nbsp;cheesiness&nbsp; of the first one. The beaming of Scotty into the water tunnel almost ruined the movie for me.&nbsp;

The sequel officially has a name and it looks to be taking a, well, darker turn than most of the other films. Hopefully they cut down on the lens flare this time too.

They've been pretty tight-lipped about this sequel. I guess it comes down to how much you can trust a jet-lagged Karl Urban as he's the only one who has said that Cumberbatch is playing Mitchell.Still, I was still kind of hoping for Khan, though that has been pretty much debunked at this time. I thought the relaunch of the series worked well and I'm interested to see where they go from here (less lens flare this time, please).

I don't wanna burst any bubbles, but I here that benedict cumberbath is not playing "khan"... now they r saying "gary mitchell"... but he doesn't look anything like the "gary mitchell" character... I think that its all lies! He does however look A LOT LIKE THE CMDR DECKER CHARACTER from the episode "the doomsday machine".....

I agree. Of all the casting in the previous film, Simon Pegg was the only one who felt a little out of place. Still, overall casting on that one was great, so hopefully it'll remain so for the next one.The time travel plot device was actually, in my opinion, a stroke of brilliance. It allowed the writers to not be chained to any previous mythology that might conflict with the series or even trouble fans.
