Excerpt: Synopsis: The crew of the USS Enterprise leaps into action when Khan - a genetically-engineered super-human criminal - escapes custody and threatens to destroy the Federation. Comments: Big and busy, and chock full of action, special effects and some amusing nods to past Trek.
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: 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.

Excerpt: This is a good sci-fi movie, but I can't help thinking that Into Darkness is made more for Star Trek fans than the casual moviegoer (at least compared to the first film). That's not to say that a general audience won't appreciated it, I just think all the little references and touches will be lost...
