When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organisation has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

Returning for the sequel are Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Zoë Saldana, and Anton Yelchin.

Great film.

Especially the second one.

Khan crying in that scene was top notch, man. There's also that scene with Spock and Kirk that I almost cried like a bitch.

Star Trek is one of the greatest blockbusters we've ever had. The second wasn't as great, but was still good. Looking forward to the third.

Great films, ID wasnt as good as the first one, but still miles ahead of the avarage blockbuster
ALF9001 - 2/8/2014, 4:29 PM
Khan was easily 2013's best villain

LOL nailbiter!

The first Star Trek was incredible, the 2nd....not so much. And of course, because we've already seen half the movie in Wrath of Khan!

But still, Into Darkness had fantastic acting, great action, but just a terrible, piss-poor story and plot. I completely understand why most Trekkies hate it.

Loved the first Trek, and so wanted to like "Into Darkness" but it was a mess. Great acting and visuals, but story was just sloppy. Here's hoping a new director can turn the third one around.

I love the first 2 movies, the second one was alot like Wrath Of Khan, but I still loved it.

Cant wait for a third one, too bad it might take a while.
SauronsBANE - 2/8/2014, 5:52 PM
I hear ya nail. The scenes with the little girl and her family were the only ones with any amount of heart and emotion in the entire film. I didn't hate Into Darkness and I can sort of enjoy watching it to some degree, but that doesn't change the fact that it's a poorly thought out mess.

I liked both of those films for what they were. It is a great update to the franchise and has created a new generation of fans. That is only a good thing.
Superman8 - 2/8/2014, 7:12 PM
love both of these films, especially the second. Cumberbatch killed it.
TheVirgin - 2/8/2014, 7:18 PM
I hope they make 4 more films!!! Pls make 4 more!!

The first ST was awesome. Loved it! Into Darkness was alright though. Bones was funny in that one.
MercwithMouth - 2/8/2014, 8:03 PM
Thank god I never, ever watched anything Star Trek before the 2009 film. I absolutely loved both it and Into Darkness. They are simply not Star Trek. And Khan was by far the best villian of 2013. Cumberbatch killed it.

I grew up watching all of the Star Trek shows but, I thought that the original series was shite *dodges a thrown brick*.

When some of the more biased fans called it "the worst Star Trek film ever", I was compelled to agree with Simon Pegg's response to that insult because I said the same thing "Oh, [frick] off!". I say this because I've seen all of the films and I KNOW that there were much worse Star Trek films ("The Voyage Home", "The Final Frontier"). Therefore, I now write that insult off as "overzealous nonsense". I consider "Into Darkness" to be a worthy inheritor to "Wrath of Khan" and that will always be MY opinion, so please don't think that insulting me or my opinion will change this.

I enjoyed both of these films and I loved ST:ID. I'll never understand the level of venom that some fans threw at this film. After some of the more vitriolic comments, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the more beloved actors in this new series opted not to do another one, or took their sweet time before attempting it. This is because they're stuck in a "damned if we do and damned if we don't" scenario. If they attempt to appease the hardcore fans who carry schematics of the Enterprise and annoy Leonard Nimoy on a yearly basis, then they risk losing the general audience. If they attempt to attract the general audience, the more hardcore fans lose their objectivity and turn on the franchise as if it has never given them ANYTHING. If I had to face that kind of capriciousness, then I would consider letting the franchise sit for several years until the fans BEGGED for another one. Or I would make one that was such a departure from the Star Treks that the hardcore fans grew up on, that the resulting film would cause them to fall down dead. I know that sounds extreme but I remember reading some of the garbage that was thrown at the stars of the film and I wouldn't have blamed them for feeling "turned against". I mean, if ONE film could take them from being "beloved" to "villified" by the hardcore fan base (which is considerably smaller than the general audience and is getting smaller by the year), then I would no longer feel any compunction to try and pacify those who seem to not be able to handle any canon that deviates from what they grew up with.

Have to agree with SauronsBANE1 and Nailbiter here. The poor writing of the second film sunk it.

Preach it, Loki!
Into Darkness is awesome. I loved it.
