Star Trek: Into Darkness Movie Review
by, Rajiim Gross of The Rag Review
Star Trek Into Darkness is the second installment of the J.J. Abrams
reboot of Star Trek which stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Peter Weller. This film takes Kirk and his crew on yet another adventure across the Galaxy to bring a terrorist to justice. The film is full of lot's of action and suspense. The visual effects are stunning and with this film in 3-D you actually feel like you are right there with the crew on screen! This film is full of twists and turns and plots you don't expect!
You don't have to be a trekkie to enjoy this film, However If your a true trekkie and know your history, This film will hold more for you than the average movie goer. Into Darkness Parallels an original Star Trek Film. It revives an old Villain and plays with some role reversals in this new timeline.
This new Star Trek Universe breathes new life into some old characters.
Kirk is Whitty and full of one liners, Spock is as Logical as ever, Scotty and Bones are the bag of laughs as usual except this isn't William Shatner's Star Trek…… It's Chris Pine's. Not that I'm taking anything away from The Original Crew, it's just that this new crew is a fresh take on a good series. J.J. Abrams has succesfully complimented the work of Gene Roddenberry. Think of this as Star Trek 2.0…… an Upgrade!
I do wish to acknowledge Director J.J. Abrams and thank him for re-imaging Star Trek and bringing it back to the big screen!! I have been a fan of Star Trek since I was a kid! I've become a huge fan of Director J.J. Abrams also! Some of my favorite TV Shows had his touch such as Fringe, Lost, Alcatraz, Alias, and now Revolution. Thank you for being such a visionary and bringing us great TV Shows and Movies!!
Running Time: 2 hours 12 Minutes
