Excerpt: Star Trek (2009) was to me, what a lollypop to a toddler was. It had everything I wanted to see out of a Star Trek film, plus more: anyone could enjoy it for being entertaining, smart sci-fi. Star Trek: Into Darkness is not the case. It was very heavily focused on many minor aspects of the first one. Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are free-flowing once again in their roles. Especially Quinto this time around.
Excerpt: Shaking stuff! Sparkling chemistry: Spock and Kirk You win me over. If you need a nicely poised space-adventure with interesting twists then, into darkness is a big Yes! Always been a fan of the Star Trek series, here I get a rousing and solid action film. Chris Pine, Quinto and Saldana reprise their role. They are now facing a dreadful enemy Harrison, the deadly Cumberbatch. Harrison kills some star fleet crew members including their general.
Summary: Not nearly as good as the first JJ Abrams Star Trek movie but it is full of action and progresses the franchise along nicely. Sci Fi fans will appreciate it and action fans will enjoy it. I am disappointed, though, that it couldn't match the first one's time travel story. Still a solid entry.
Excerpt: Well after seeing the prequel of sorts to this prequel of sorts I fell in love with the cast that portray the crew of the U.S.S Enterprise in their youthful prime. Young Kirk (Chris Pine who is brilliant as Kirk may I mention?) Zachary Quinto is the young Spock and I wont fore mention any of the rest of the cast but let me say they are all brilliant as well.
Excerpt: Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) PG-13 Captain Kirk (Chris Prine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the Enterprise crew are sent on a mission to go behind enemy lines. Will Kirk risk his ship and crew to stop a man (Benedict Cumberbatch) that is hell-bent on death and destruction? I am a huge Star Trek fan and I loved the first J.J. Abrams Star Trek (2009) film, that brought a fresh take to this iconic series. But I only liked this film, I didn’t love it.
Excerpt: This is a good sci-fi movie, but I can't help thinking that Into Darkness is made more for Star Trek fans than the casual moviegoer (at least compared to the first film). That's not to say that a general audience won't appreciated it, I just think all the little references and touches will be lost on the regular populace. Still, this movie succeeds thanks to the characters - especially Benedict Cumberbatch, who presents an amazing villain.
