“..this is certainly an astute, exhilarating concoction..”
by Andrew Pulver [The Guardian]
Review rate : B+

“..the movie is more concerned - as was the original - with the value of human life and the individual within society..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
“..the film - which runs an epic 135mins - impressively freewheels between thrilling chases and laser battles on planets to beautifully shot spaceship attacks and onto a stunning climax back at Earth itself..”
by Mark Adams [Screen International]
“..noisy, frenetic, grandiose and essentially a soap opera..”
by ohn Anderson [Wall Street Journal]
“..J.J. Abrams sets his filmmaking to "stun" for "Star Trek Into Darkness," a sequel in every respect equal or even superior to its splendid 2009 predecessor..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
3.5 of 4

“..it's more fun and more intense, without giving less to the characters..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
4 of 5

“..it's an exhilarating, emotionally rich and utterly pleasurable journey that wears its love for Trek fans old and new on its sleeve..”
by Emma Dibdin [Digital Spy]
“..at its core an intergalactic manhunt tale about a traitor to the cause, the production gives the impression of a massive machine cranked up for two hours of full output; it efficiently delivers what it's built to do, but without style or personality..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
4 of 5

“..a blast, fun, funny, spectacular and exhilarating. The rule of great even-numbered Trek movies continues..”
by Ian Freer [Empire Magazine]

“.."Star Trek Into Darkness" is still an involving film with more heart than most summer blockbusters..”
by Matt Zoller Seitz [Chicago Sun-Times]
4.5 of 5

“.."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..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]


“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]


“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]


“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]


“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]


“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]


“..the camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs..”
by David Parkinson [Radio Times]


“..there's plenty of entertainment value to found. Just don't expect to leave the film with a smile on your face and joy in your heart..”
by Blair Hoyle [Cinema Slasher]


“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]


“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
