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.

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.

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.

Even with his superior technology and an established commitment to innovative storytelling, Abrams might have been overly ambitious when deciding to halfway alter a classic.

Christopher Orr

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.

Washington Free Beacon

Star Trek Into Darkness is a high octane but messily plotted romp, with solid performances papering over plot holes you could pilot a galaxy-class starship through.

This movie is a fun ride from start to finish. It doesn't have all the origin stuff like the first JJ Abrams Trek movie, so can get right into the action.… More
