    Kudos to Abrams for going bigger without going stupid. His set pieces, from an erupting volcano to the hell unleashed over London and Frisco Bay, are doozies. So's the movie. It's crazy good. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Full of humor, some exciting scenes and some intelligent parallels between the world of the film and the political and moral issues facing us today. show more

    Spectacular special effects, superbly crafted action sequences, plenty of humor and terrific performances render it a cut above most summer blockbusters. show more

    John Anderson Wall Street Journal

    Noisy, frenetic, grandiose and essentially a soap opera, director J.J. Abrams's second contribution to the franchise has everything, including romance: Never before have Capt. James T. Kirk and his Vulcan antagonist, Mr. Spock, seemed so very much in love. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    The action is exhilarating, the visual effects spectacular - and spectacularly realized. show more

    The result is a stunningly nervy sequel that vaporizes any worries that Abrams’ terrific 2009 reboot was a fluke. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    After impressing well enough in his previous big screen directorial outings, Abrams works in a narrower, less imaginative mode here; there's little sense of style, no grace notes or flights of imagination. One feels the dedication of a young musician at a recital determined not to make any mistakes, but there's no hint of creative interpretation, personal feelings or the spreading of artistic wings. show more

    Star Trek Into Darkness gives you an exhilarating, tingle-inducing rush — that rare feeling that comes when a gigantic entertainment is firing on all fronts, exceeding your expectations. show more

    All Abrams wants to do is give us a great ride while holding firm to our longstanding emotional investment in these characters. show more

    I liked the JJ reboot of Star Trek. This pile of rubbish however gets a \"cold fusion\" from me on all counts. The acting is worse than TOS, Khan could have been something more than a simple plot progression tool with an actual personality, and seriously, too many lens flares!!

    Forget the critics score. This movie was GREAT!!! It did an excellent job of following up the last Star Trek and introducing a new story. I actually paid to see it twice and that\'s not something that I normally do.

    I enjoyed the movie immensely up to a point then was very much rubbed the wrong way by the inability of the writers to come up with an original plot.

    The movie critics really drive me up a wall. I have to use a dictionary every time I read a review they write. \" DENSELY PLOTTED...CONVOLUTED...CLUNKY...NON-SENSICAL\" Speak English, really...What does this mean.......ITS JUST A MOVIE not a recipe for rocket fuel
