Sci-Fi Adventure - This sequel to the reboot of the long-running science fiction film
and television adventure series has bigger effects and a lot more
action than the first film. Fans of the franchise will definitely
enjoy though the some of the regular ensemble has their roles
diminished. There are some scary and intense action scenes as well
as some mild language, but generally most families will find this
acceptable viewing for pre-teen kids and up.
PROFANITY: 3 S-words; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: An implied threesome without nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights, shootings with minimal blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Brief alcohol. ACTION: Chases, gunplay, fights, explosions, combat. COMEDY: Comic banter and wisecracks.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good ...this is sufficiently rousing and entertaining that it should please a majority of movie-goers whether they're confessed Trek fans or not.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average For all its sloppiness and blind spots and fanboy pirouettes, though, 'Star Trek Into Darkness' is still an involving film with more heart than most summer blockbusters.
USA TodayFull Review Very Good Spectacular special effects, superbly crafted action sequences, plenty of humor and terrific performances render it a cut above most summer blockbusters.
Entertainment WeeklyFull Review Good The nervy reboot of the "Star Trek" franchise by action impresario J.J. Abrams can be summed up, quite simply, as a triumph of casting.
