‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ Movie Review [VIDEO]
An impressive job from J.J. Abrams, with that being said, the sets, costumes and production design are all pretty impressive.
In this film, it’s the hunt for a one man weapon of mass destruction within the Enterprise, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to stop this force of terror.
“Star Trek: Into Darkness” is nearly everything that could be expected of a follow-up to the 2009 reboot of the long-lived and prosperous Star Trek franchise.
Chris Pine (James Kirk) and Zachary Quinto (Spock) are in fine form but are overshadowed by Benedict Cumberbatch as he joins the cast. John Harrison (Cumberbatch) manages to be the most memorable villain since Tom Hardy’s “Bane” and Heath Ledger’s “Joker.”
Along with his team, J. J. Abrams are clearly in their element. They move through planets and set pieces without batting an eyelid.
This film is worth a good 4.5 out of 5. Trekkie or not, you will enjoy this film. And oh yeah, don’t forget the popcorn.
The film is rated PG-13 and runs 132 minutes. It’s showing at the Parkwood Cinemas.
