Star Trek Into Darkness Movie Reviews
User reviews on Star Trek Into Darkness
This film was totally awesome and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. I am a trekkie and I am proud to say that and I have been waiting for this film to come out forever it seems. The film looked amazing visually, I enjoyed the story and the characters and it was full of great action. The characters are well developed and I really enjoyed the performance of Benedict c**berbatch , he was a perfect villain and made the film that much better. The film also worked on an emotional level and it stayed true to the way the old series created science-fiction allegories to explore current dilemmas. I was highly entertained by this film and I think it is worth your time and money, even if you are not a trekkie, you will like this film.
I have been waiting for this film to come out forever and it is finally here! I absolutely loved the film and highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. You can probably tell at this point that I am a huge Star Trek fan so I had high expectations for this film and I am glad to say that all of my expectations were met. The story was great, the characters were well developed and I loved the villain played by Benedict c**berbatch, he was amazing. The film was also amazing visually and it was full of great action scenes, I was highly entertained by it. Overall, I think this film simply must be seen on the big screen, I guarantee that you will not regret seeing this film.
This was such an amazing film and I highly recommend seeing it in IMAX 3D, it was well worth the extra cash. The film was fun and entertaining, it had a great story and an awesome villain played by Benedict c**berbatch. I liked that the film was not all about special effects and visuals, the characters were well developed and the film had a heart and a message. The film was not as good as the first one, however I was still impressed and entertained and I think that Abrams did a great job with this film. The chemistry between Kirk and Spock was right on and I praise the actors for their great performances. Overall, the film was great and i think it must be seen on the big screen.
On its own terms, yes, I would say that this is as good a piece of entertainment as you would expect it to be. But, seriously: is anyone else out there exhausted by the seemingly endless parade of sci fi summer action blockbusters? It seems like there's at least one every week and after being inundated with so many, they all kind of feel the same to me. This is a good movie when viewed in isolation, but after the recent Iron Man and the upcoming 300 and at least a dozen other mega blockbuster wannabes, you have to ask if Hollywood is simply churning out these movies like a conveyor belt in a candy factory. Zachary Quinto is really good in the movie and I suspect that he really enjoys this role. I hope that if they make another one of these (as the inevitably will) that they have him in the lead role instead of Chris Pine. He's just super in this.
There are two ways to look at this latest Star Trek feature. The first – and the one I’m willing to bet most moviegoers will look at the film – is as a classic summer action adventure movie. The second – and this is for the purists out there – is a bastardization of the very thing Star Trek was formulated to stand for when the original TV series was created.
I am not a Trekkie or a Star Trek purist, so in terms of entertainment value there can be no doubt that the movie scores - big time. It is as wild and fun and fast-paced as the best popcorn entertainment Hollywood studio money can buy. J.J. Abrams is in top form here, employing every conceivable bit of sco-fi storytelling you can imagine (or at least tolerate). Also in top form is his cast – Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, and Zachary Quinto – who all play their parts like sexy survivalists. And has there ever been a more aptly named movie bad guy than Benedict c**berbatch? Methinks not.
But once you get past all that, you are left with the dubious message of the movie. It basically says that violence is the only answer to our most pressing problems, and that revenge is the grandest of all emotions in the universe. And that very blatant message goes directly in opposition to the pursuit of intergalactic peace that permeated the TV series.
Will enough people notice? Or care?
