  • Owen Gleiberman

    Into Darkness is a sleek, thrilling epic that's also a triumphantly witty popcorn morality play. It's everything you could want in a Star Trek movie.

  • Steve Persall

    Yes, this one is even better: funnier, brawnier and ingeniously constructed for appeal to both devoted fans and reluctant converts.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

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

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Star Trek Into Darkness is a giddy homage to what’s come before it, but it also at least tries to go boldly where ... well, you know.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Markedly grander in scale, although never at the expense of its richly human (and half-human) characters, “Into Darkness” may not boldly go where no “Trek” adventure has gone before, but getting there is such a well-crafted, immensely pleasurable ride that it would be positively Vulcan to nitpick.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    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.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Star Trek Into Darkness offers much of what the fans expect and not much of what they don't. This character-driven vehicle is a supercharged example of cinematic craftsmanship.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

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

    USA Today Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    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.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Ty Burr

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

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The new film works. It's rousing.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Steven Rea

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

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    So many things are done right that even with the bombast, "Into Darkness" is the best of this summer's biggies thus far. It's a great deal of brash fun.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    What's more -- and here's where Abrams' brilliance is on full display -- you don't need to know a Class M planet from a hole in the ground to enjoy it all.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Ian Freer

    In some sense, the title is misleading. Into Darkness is a blast, fun, funny, spectacular and exhilarating. The rule of great even-numbered Trek movies continues.

    Empire Full Review
  • Andrew Pulver

    People are unlikely to charge out of the cinema with quite the same level of glee as they did in 2009; but this is certainly an astute, exhilarating concoction.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Dave Calhoun

    A stop-gap tale that’s modest, fun and briefly amusing rather than one that breaks new ground or offers hugely memorable set pieces.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Matthew Leyland

    Mostly, this is fantastic fun: a two-hours-plus blockbuster that doesn’t bog down in exposition or sag in the middle. There are reversals and rug-pulls galore, most of them executed with whiplash skill.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Screenwriters Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and fanboys’ favorite whipping boy, Damon Lindelof, keep the film moving at a quippy clip; there’s really no fat here until the film feints a climax only to lurch the coaster-car back up the hill again.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Is it too much to ask that he take a risk next time and kill somebody off, however much we’re used to having them in the “Trek” universe?

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Since 9/11-style terrorism is very much on display here, I suppose it’s fair to say that Star Trek Into Darkness is a sci-fi blow-out with overtones of the real. Series founder Gene Roddenberry would, I think, approve.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Rip-roaring set-pieces aside, the biggest pleasure here is still the yin-yang chemistry between Kirk and Spock, even as the writers sand down the barbed edges of the characters’ interactions.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The special effects are first rate - not always the case with Star Trek movies, although Abrams has been given a budget the likes of which directors Nicholas Meyer, Leonard Nimoy, and William Shatner would have salivated over.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Yet with all the futuristic splendor and the suitably majestic score and the fine performances, “Into Darkness” only occasionally soars, mostly settling for being a solid but unspectacular effort that sets the stage for the next chapter(s).

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    The casting coup here is Benedict Cumberbatch, who exudes steely resolve and silken savagery as a villain on the cusp of becoming a legendary nemesis.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    The film is densely plotted, occasionally bordering on the convoluted, but the clarity and inventiveness of the direction keeps the drama and the action constantly percolating.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    He’s (Abrams) caught some of the spark of the first Star Trek without either mimicking or desecrating the original.

    Slate Full Review
  • John Anderson

    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.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    There’s absolutely nothing wrong with Star Trek Into Darkness – once you understand it as a generic comic-book-style summer flick faintly inspired by some half-forgotten boomer culture thing. (Here’s something to appreciate about Abrams: This is a classic PG-13 picture, with little or no sex or swearing, but one that never condescends.) Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Cumberbatch, a tweedy Brit with an M.A. in Classical Acting and a face like a monstrous Timothy Dalton, has beefed up to become a convincing killer. He's brutal and bold, and the film around him isn't bad either.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    This series will survive as well, until 2016 — when, you can bet, there will be a third Star Trek to celebrate the TV show’s 50th anniversary. Here’s hoping that those three years will bestow a measure of maturity on all concerned: Kirk and his bright curators too.

    Time Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Is the movie good? It’s hard to be objective. The plotting is clunky and nonsensical, but Abrams and crew bombarded me into happiness. More than that, they made me feel so special for getting the in-jokes.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    Abrams and his screenwriters (Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof) are so obsessed with acknowledging and then futzing around with what we already know about Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Scotty and company that the movie doesn’t breathe. Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    For those who enjoyed J.J. Abrams’s frisky relaunch of Star Trek back in 2009, the good news is that the new Star Trek Into Darkness is more of the same. The bad news is that Star Trek Into Darkness is, well, a bit too familiar.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    As our old friend Ricardo Montalban said thirty years ago in “The Wrath of Khan,” still the best of the “Star Treks” — “It is veeery coooooold in space.” “Into Darkness,” for all its dense textures and epic scale, left me cold.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    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.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    A large portion of Star Trek’s audience may well be satisfied by a film that amounts to not much more than an incredibly pretty and sporadically funny in-joke. But think back to the corny romance of that original mission statement, recited by William Shatner on many a rainy school night. Strange new worlds. New life. New civilisations. Boldly going where no man has gone before. That pioneer spirit? It’s gone.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Oliver Lyttelton

    Star Trek Into Darkness is a long, long way from a disaster, but it's hard not to feel that Abrams' mystery box turned out to be a bit empty this time out.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    It’s hard to emerge from “Into Darkness” without a feeling of disappointment, even betrayal.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    At least the Abrams-helmed Star Trek from 2009 had a pretzel-logic playfulness; the portentously subtitled Into Darkness is attempting like hell to be a Trek for our troubled times. The franchise has been thoroughly Christopher Nolan–ized.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    The only darkness here — besides the dingy-looking images dimmed by 3-D glasses — is the murky plot, which is as silly as it is arbitrary.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    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.
