While there was much criticism to the lack of accuracy to the original series, Star Trek Into Darkness is a great movie. Anyone who enjoyed the first film should be pleasantly surprised by this sequel.
For starters, Chris Pine, and Zachary Quinto do an excellent job as portraying the two friends and heros Kirk and Spock. Young Kirk once again shows his cocky yet confident leadership as Captain of the Enterprise. And Spock, his logical and loyal friend stays by his side throughout their adventures. Benedict Cumberbatch also does a great job of playing the vicious villain, Khan. Khan was an incredibly witty character, yet an extremely cold and powerful man who portrayed an excellent adversary and challenge to Kirk and his crew. This film was filled with strong emotion driven by each one of the characters that moved the audience.
The story line was fast-paced and interesting.At first, I thought that the movie was going to be bland and predictable, but I was pleasantly surprised at the suspenseful events in the story.
There were some complaints about this movie as well. Some people were displeased with the differences that occurred in this film when compared to the original series. For example, in one of the original Star Trek Movies, Spock is the one who dies in the radiation capsule, and Kirk mourns his death. Also, some were upset that the ending seen was Spock fighting hand to hand with Khan and not Captain Kirk.
Overall, this film is very exciting and thrilling. It is has a great balance of emotion and action. It is a brilliant sequel to the first Star Trek movie.
Zachary Quinto played Spock and is the only actor in the movie who did a decent job acting. The acting of all the others was terrible. I love sci-fi so this was good for me but they could have done a much better job with the special effects and plot. It was a typical Trek type movie and I am a Trek fan. The special effects were poor for this day and age.
A decent storyline but the villian Kahn left something to be desired. He emotionless mostly except for small bursts of anger here and there which got old fast. Most everyone from the first movie was brought back to their original roles which was nice so you didn't have to deal with horrible re-castings. While not as good as the first Star Trek movie it was pretty close. Worth a watch. 7/10
If you thought the first Star Trek was good, this one blows it out of the water. Great acting, action, sets, script, everything. Easily the best movie this year so far.
I don't want to give any spoilers but the writers are doing a great job of keeping to the official canon within the new split timeline. We really get to see Kirk grow into the captain that he was always meant to be.
One scene I thought was a little too predictable, but no one else around me had clue it was going to happen, so maybe it wasn't that predictable.
If you only go see one movie a year make it Star Trek.
In 3-d..sitting close up to dodge space debris, ships zooming off. If the special effects don't get ya, all the actors and actresses will. I caught myself cheering, sitting on the edge, laughing, and yes crying.. What a great movie it is!! A whole new series of Star Trek for us older 'Trekkies' and for all the new viewers become 'Trekkies' too. Just outstanding!!
