Saw it a second time last, and Into Darkness has now vaulted to #2 in my all time Trek movie list. I absolutely loved the film, and in particular Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto own the roles of Kirk and Spock. The rest of the cast is absolutely fantastic and Benedict Cumberpatch just dominates every scene he's in and is supremely menacing.
Loved the story, loved how certain scenes echoed moments from Star Trek II. And just like the great trilogy of Trek's II-IV, the characters took center stage and propelled the story forward.
