Star Trek, The INTENSE Sequel

By ThePslust
Written May 23, 2013
Truly, truly, this sequel was intense, filled with action, and fine character development. Almost felt like Abrams thought he was doing his last Star Trek movie ever, and thus he had to get everything he could into this one or lose any chance of doing so later. Truly, what will Abrams do next time? Can there be a next time? What next? Loved the character interactions; loved the interaction between the two Spocks; and I loved the overall interaction with the audience. If someone wants to see a movie with ACTION, with THRILLS, and with SUSPENSE, then this is the one to see this summer.

Awesome second to the first movie. For those of us that remember the Wrath of Khan, the introduction of Khan in this way makes me wonder if we will see him again.

A Debacle from Start to Finish

In theory, the double feature looked like it would be a fun and unique viewing experience. I arrived at the theater two hours early (in costume, of course) expecting to jump in line for this "premier" event only to discover that there was no line as yet and that I was one of only 25 ticket holders. A mostly empty theater certainly took an edge off the thrill I had going into the experience. Then the 2009 film 2D. The Double Feature was billed as a 3D event. Certainly less excitement and more frustration at this point. And yet, the kicker was yet to come. As you can see from the poster, Into Darkness was slated to begin at 12:01 am, and yet when my friends and I returned to the theater at 11:45, concessions in hand, the film had already started. Now I was mad. And utterly lost since we missed the first five minutes. Nothing about this evening was "as advertised." Bottom line, Fandango needs to get their Schtako together because the entire event was...(go to title).

Fantastic, especially as double feature!

Really enjoyed the movie. It was a great story and the interesting thing about it is the ability to deal with something dealt with by the non-rebooted Kirk in a completely different manner. I liked the way it intertwined the old story with the new one. Great action and a must see. Planning on seeing it again, too!

Star Trek - Double Feature

We were few at the double feature, but probably due to the short window of opportunity to purchase the tickets - all the better for those who attended! Watching the two movies back-to-back allows for a direct comparison...and the second may be better than the first. I will see Into the Darkness another time or two on the big screen (IMAX 3D tonight!) , very enjoyable movie. well pleased.
