Why is this film so despised and received historical revision as a "failure"? I find Into Darkness no more unenjoyable than The Search For Spock and Generations in the broad scheme of things and it's not objectively the tire fire that The Final Frontier, Insurrection, and Nemesis are. It was a solid box office success and garnered OK reviews, and is another victim of fanboi groupthink when it had a rather derivative and contrived Act III that hurts it on rewatch. I just find it a "Eh?" movie at worst with its weaker parts and the nerd rage it provokes as completely hilarious (like with Prometheus, The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi).
