Consensus: Visually spectacular and suitably action packed, Star Trek Into Darkness is a rock-solid installment in the venerable sci-fi franchise, even if it's not as fresh as its predecessor.

Most of the logic has leached away from this movie, and with it half of the fun.

The conceptual sci-fi of the original series is nowhere to be found, though you might enjoy watching the skinny young actors approximate their counterparts from the 60s; Chris Pine is especially good as Captain Kirk.

Ray Pride

The 9/11-style attack on London at the film's beginning is followed by backstory upon cover story and bright rhetoric soars and false flags are planted. They darkly wave. Political opportunity is not wasted on ready opportunists.

Happily, there's a good deal of fun if you like things crashing violently into each other and out of warp-drive at regular intervals.

Wall Street Journal

While the action is often electric, it's the relationships that matter. That, and a lippy regard for a cultural legacy.

Star Trek Into Darkness still manages to be an even more enjoyable film than its precursor.

For all its chasing and falling and fighting-and the movie supplies a great deal of each-Star Trek Into Darkness is at its best when the Enterprise crew are merely bickering and bantering among themselves: less space opera than soap opera.

The film is, for whatever else it might be, one of the funniest of the Star Trek entries.

In terms of sheer spectacle, there's no denying that it delivers. For all the build-up, hype, and hope leading up to the film, it's just a shame there isn't a whole lot more.
