Star Trek Into Darkness

21 May

In 2009, J.J. Abrams’s vision of Star Trek revolutionized the sci-fi franchise for an audience much larger than its “Trekkies” faithful. His second attempt does not disappoint either group. Star Trek Into Darkness is filled with thrilling action driven by a story that goes warp speed to the point that spectators cannot help smile as the force of the film pushes heads back to take in the universe of amazing visuals.

Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) is faced with a formidable enemy named John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch), a terrorist within Starfleet who’s especially good as a villain. Kirk and the Enterprise crew must embark on a manhunt and be prepared to go where no man has gone before. The story is not completely original, but it is a blockbuster summer hit that will leave audiences wanting to beam up to Scottie and give him a high-five for taking them for one hell of a ride through the final frontier once again.

    Easily an A in my book. You forgot to mention that it’s also a story about learning what self-sacrifice means.
