Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
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.
This movie is magnificent!
The joyful confection is coated in a sparkly gloss, bright enough to gleam from the darkest, most cynical corners.
The acting is good, and the firecracker script has some excellent ideas.
The best Star Trek film so far. Great acting and a truly mind blowing story line.
This is a great movie. It has great acting. It also has a great story line. It is better then the TV show. It is better then the first 11 Star Trek movies. This is the best movie ever. See this movie. It is a great movie. It is scary fast past. It is kind of scary at times. Star Wars is a bite better then this movie. But still this a great movie. Far better then 2001 a space odyssey could ever be. This this movie. It is a great movie.
Listen, this movie is a mixed bag just like most films these days that are either sequels, imaginations or in this case, both.It's not that this movie is bad per say, it's just that it's not new. If you are new to Trek, you will enjoy this. If you're a fanboy, listen to Shatner's advice and "get a life". If you're somewhere in the middle like me, grew-up with it, watched it all, enjoyed it; you may or may not like this movie.I found it entertaining and the talent was not too bad. Some of the ideas were OK, but again nothing fresh.At the end of the day it's a solid 6.5 because of it's lack of vision and depth. If you want to understand why this movie is the way it is, go watch Wrath of Khan, arguably the best Trek movie and one of the best pieces of science fiction ever put together.
I thought this movie was good when I first watched it, but as I thought about it the next day I realized that it makes no sense. Captain Kirk holds Dr. Who the "prisoner" on his ship and protects him because he believed the prisoner's lie, and instead of negotiating logically with the star fleet captain, the star fleet captain opens fire on him...They end up forming an "alliance" to board the star fleet's ship and overthrow them. But then, the prisoner becomes hostile and turns on Captain Kirk. In the end, the prisoner takes control of the supership (instead of Kirk assuming control of the superior ship) and Kirk finds a clever way to destroy the super ship with the prisoner on it...So in the end, both ships were destroyed and the star fleet captain killed (along with his crew and daughter, I think. I don't remember because I fell asleep at some point). And ultimately the prisoner had evil intentions as well! So Captian Kirk essentially made the worst decision he could have made in bargaining with a prisoner and jeopardized the lives of thousands of crew members for an unnecessary and pointless cause (believing a lie). Then he is heralded as some sort of hero, when he could have obeyed his superior's orders and all of this could have been adverted!Of course, this is never addressed in the movie, and instead there is a long and sobby vaccum-chamber scene. I just hated all the slow gushy scenes in this movie and the close-ups of that actor's face all the time. It's like the movie was constructed for women to watch... young women.I'm a fan of science and science fiction though, so I still "enjoyed" this.
