When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
I’ve never really been a “Trek” fan but i watched the first of the rebooted series and i didn’t dislike it but i thought the story was underdeveloped.
Star Trek Into Darkness follows the same path but manages to exceed the the amount of absolute bullshit and stale story and direction in general to a whole new level and oh so many lens flares.
I found the characters to be incredibly boring and one dimensional and the drama is short lived by the very fact that nobody really has anything to loose. There’s no real tension or impending doom and the main villain had such a short amount of screen time that whatever he did just seemed to be because he could. Maybe I missed something important during a conversation but then in my defense the script was so bland that it was nearly impossible to follow.
Also there was a scene where the admirals daughter was for some weird reason in her underwear, not for long mind you, and while it was a nice change to be interested for at least five seconds i don’t think it was necessary to have her all of sudden stripped to her lingerie. What did that have to do with anything? Was their a love story there? I honestly didn’t pick up on one.
They had so many moments for character relationships to develop but it was completely squandered by “all of sudden!” moments and then nothing gets finished.
But on the positive side the visuals were really good. There is a scene where Kirk and Khan have to jump from one ship to another through a debris of junk in space. That whole scene was brilliant in look and style. Really awesome stuff. The other was Spock giving a speech on why he chooses not to feel but that it doesn’t mean that he doesn’t care. I really liked the fact that he was expressing himself in a way that wasn’t robotic. Benedict Cumberbatch was really impressive as Khan. It must be the voice or something. Ever since Loki i think villains are way cooler when they are skinny with an English accent.
This is what makes me question J.J.Abrams ability to direct Star Wars Episode VII. I’ve never really enjoyed anything that he’s directed and i worry based on all his films specifically Star Trek Into Darkness, if Star Wars will be able to retain its magic.
