    Cumberbatch is easily the best thing about the film – he makes a classic villain, powerful and menacing at times, low and squirming at others, in much the same way as The Joker in the best Batman graphic novels.

  • Star Trek Into Darkness does have all the ingredients that make for a summer tent-pole success, but the soggy Kirk-Spock friendship is a letdown, especially keeping in mind the expectations set by the first installment.

  • A high octane adventure powered by adrenalin, testosterone, stupendous visual effects and nostalgia. What makes Into Darkness irresistible is the homages are well thought of, and while getting the references are a big bonus, the movie can be thoroughly enjoyed free of all the background.
