So I watched Star Trek Into Darkness, and this my review:
Star Trek Into Darkness is not as entirely original as its predecessor was, but it doesn’t mean it’s any less entertaining.
The movie starts right with some action, just like first one, even if it’s not that relevant to the main plot. It does show what the crew is doing now and show us exactly who they are and what motivates them. After that, we see villain John Harrison (Cumberbatch) for the first time, and his subsequent attacks on Starfleet become a personal matter to Kirk (Pine) et al. This will mean a persecutions, a reveal after reveal and throwbacks to a classic and beloved Star Trek movie.
Man, J.J. Abrams and the writers must be quite thick skinned because hardcore trekkies are going to flay them. Especially after that ending that felt a bit of a cop out. That said, the movie is so very enjoyable and action-packed. It barely slows downs, and when it does the actors can usually pull it through.(READ MORE)
