Star Trek Into Darkness

Family Friendly Gaming
28 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Hollywood has a history of redefining things in strange and odd ways. Take Star Trek Into Darkness for example. The role reversals they did will make your head spin. This movie makes Captain Kirk look weak. He dies to save the crew instead of Spock. Spock is then the one who goes after Khan. Ultimately Khan is the one who brings Kirk back from the dead thanks to his super soldier blood.

Star Trek Into Darkness 3D

18 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Hot on the heels of Iron Man 3 , the summer’s second blockbuster precedes it to home video by a week.  But in its quest to reach the final box office frontier, Star Trek Into Darkness attempted to also go where no Trek had gone before; into the third dimension.  A full-on post-production conversion, Into Darkness has the additional distinction of being the first feature film to shoot IMAX on almost 30 minutes of the movie, and then undergo a post conversion.

  • Conclusion: Well-made and engrossing, Star Trek Into Darkness is the rare sequel that stands strongly on its own. It requires no love for the franchise or even for the previous film to thoroughly enjoy.

Star Trek Into Darkness (Blu-ray 3D)

  • Summary: This will likely be Abrams’ final journey on the Enterprise. His life is going to be dominated with the Star Wars universe for a long time to come. If Paramount wants this all to continue, and they will, someone else will have to take the reins once again. I can’t say I’ll miss Abrams’ camera flares at all. I suspect in Star Wars you’ll have a hard time seeing those light sabers with the camera flares all about. But I will miss his touch.

Star Trek: Into Darkness

Fragland
8 September 2013
  • Excerpt: After the succesful 2009 reboot under the lead of none other than JJ Abrams it looked like there was new life in Star Trek. A fresh alternate universe, the iconic characters from the first series returned, and the least that could be said about the cast is that they’ve got talent. From the moment Into Darkness was announced the expectations therefore went up quite a lot, and this didn’t get any lower when it became known that none other than Khan (the memorably baddie...

Star Trek Into Darkness

Slant Magazine
3 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The thrill and peril of revisiting and revising history served not only as a mission statement for J.J. Abrams's Star Trek , but also as the chief thematic concern of the narrative, involving dueling attempts to alter or recreate history rather than accept it. Abrams essentially successfully recreated popular myth by highlighting his own unease in undertaking such a tremendous task, and the result was a film that exceeded nearly every other filmic iteration of the...

Star Trek Into Darkness 3D Blu-ray Review

DoBlu
2 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Devious super human Kahn (Benedict Cumberbatch) returns to bridge Star Trek universes in J.J. Abrams’ bombastic and revitalized Star Trek adaptation. Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) is slung from his command chair for reckless protocol misalignment, dissent which designs itself to pull an increasingly bold crew of the USS Enterprise together.

Star Trek Into Darkness (Blu-ray Review)

1 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Being a huge Star Wars fan all my life, who has more times than I care to admit called Star Trek boring, dull and lifeless with the exception of The Next Generation episodes Ashley Judd breathes life and beauty into, I was astonished by how much fun I had with J.J. Abrams fresh take on the franchise back in 2009.

Star Trek into Darkness - 3D

High-Def Digest
31 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The Blu-ray release of 'Star Trek into Darkness' is disappointing on many levels. The movie itself is a big misstep from director J.J. Abrams, and Paramount's decision to divide the bonus features up among several retailers is extremely unfriendly to consumers. On the other hand, it's certainly not the worst 'Trek' film ('The Final Frontier' still has that dishonor), and the other technical aspects of the Blu-ray are pretty good.
