Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)


Christ Pine
Zachary Quinto
Benedict Cumberbatch

Directed by J.J. Abrams

The first Star Trek movie had it all, and will definitely draw you in as you start to enjoy this new family of explorers onboard the USS Enterprise.
The moment I heard that there was going to be a Star Trek 2 I was anxious to go see it, the whole makeup and effects of the first was something that thrilled me, so I was looking and hoping for more of the same here too.

Star Trek into Darkness is a most watch, and it is well arranged. The events keep coming at you at such a fast pace that I felt somehow in the middle it will fail to keep up. But how dare I doubt the capability of J.J. Abrams, he kept with the pace and the moment you start watching this movie, you will sit through it and not even notice that two hours have gone by.

The addition of Benedict Cumberbatch to play Khan, a genetically-engineered superhuman, and this sequel’s villain, was just tasteful, he brought in that cold demeanor that we love in the Sherlock series and in my book out-shined the lead actors (Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto).

The special effects were not the turn on in this movie it is the story and the screenplay, it seemed every turn had something that will make your eyes bulge out.

The movie started with an explosion in a volcano as the crew of USS Enterprise broke protocol as they revealed themselves to a race that is behind in technology. From there we witness an explosion caused by Khan, which led to the death of Captain/Commander James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) mentor, Kirk now bent on revenge got permission to assemble his crew with of cause Commander Spock (Zachary Quinto), as they fly to the planet Kronos to capture Khan.

Kirk and his crew learned a lot about Khan and where he was from and soon found out that they have been tricked into searching for him and also Khan is more ruthless a killer than they could ever imagine.

There are many loose ends in this plot summary, all because there is no point spoiling the film for you the reader.

The elements that the film is based on will surprise you, the way enemies became friends and vice versa will thrill you, so there is no need to read any further, if you have delayed in getting on the rebirth of the Star Trek franchise, I plead with you to cease your delay and go watch J.J. Abrams, breathe life into an old franchise.
