A Great Action-Packed Ride

Star Trek Into Darkness is an action-packed sci-fi movie dealing with controversial issues of today. As a Star Trek fan, I was impressed at how many nods there were to older series and movies. The movie rarely has any slow down time. This sequel to the 2009 blockbuster deals more with your emotions than its predecessor. One can actually feel for the antagonist of this movie. Fans and non-fans alike should like this film. Yes, there are plot holes, so you'll just have to deal with those. All together I loved Star Trek Into Darkness.

Better than the first

As we didn't need to be introduced to the characters, Spock and Kirk were able to come into their own and we got to experience more of the story. Plus Benedict Cumberbatch played an AWESOME villian!

This movie was absolutely brilliant. I saw it in IMAX 3D and it was absolutely worth it. Firstly Benedict Cumberbatch played the villain gorgeously. He is everything you want in one. He's a bit mad, but he is fighting for everything he loves (even if it involves destroying a planet he will do it), and nothing is going to stop this man from it. The range of emotion this actor portrays is nothing short of amazing. He can be cold and a bit heartless one moment, then full of violence and passion and rage, and in the next you feel the pain he has felt and IS feeling, and you actually begin cheering for the villain. I see this man becoming (although I believe he already is) one of the most brilliant and loved actors of our time. Secondly, The movie itself was amazing. I could see this movie 50 different times and still cry and scream and even laugh a little each time. It was just absolutely brilliant. Action-packed and in my opinion better than the first. It needs to be seen by all.

We went to the Fan Sneak, and the camaraderie with fellow Trekies was awesome! One young man said, "This room is great! I've never been with so many people like me!" The anticipation was high, and we were not disappointed! I have finally accepted Zachary Quinto as Spock (although we do get to see Leonard Nimoy a couple of times), and his acting was superb (and the boy can run!). Sulu surfaced as a great character as well, as did Scotty. Bones deadpanned his typical, "I'm a doctor, man, not a (fill in the blank)." The special effects were astounding, and I have a new favorite scene when the Enterprise rises out of the ---- don't want to spoil it for you, so you'd better go see it this weekend!!

I would love to drop an awesome quote from the original movies but doing so might spoil the fun for those going to see this film. The IMAX 3D was great! I usually skip 3D movies as they make me sick, but this one didn't.
