When Star Trek was first created, it was considered a disaster and was cancelled before it even really kicked off. But when a few reruns caught the eye of possible Trekkies, soon enough it was back on the air and would lead on to be a powerful franchise. When it comes to J.J. Abrams's version of the popular franchise, he remakes it enough for the new generation to appreciate and honor the previous with familiar catch phrases and scenes. For those who are willing to spend the money, it's also a great movie to see in 3D.
The plot takes place a few years after the events of Nero in the first movie while Kirk is still the reckless and Spock is still conflicted between his human and Vulcan instincts. Now a new evil comes to threaten the federation and bring it into a possible foe with a classic enemy that will have Trekkies really excited. As events unfold, Kirk and Spock soon realize what must happen in order for success to happen and so their characters begin to develop unseen qualities. The main villian played by Benedict Cumberbatch was just as believable as Heath Ledger's Joker in Dark Knight, very well performed.
Star Trek Into the Darkness followed the footsteps of Iron Man 3 being a major summer blockbuster and is full of action and drama. Whether you're a Trekkie, sci-fi fan, or just like action, this is your movie to see this weekend. This movie gets a 10 out of 10 because J.J. Abrams manages to stay true to the original plots of the previous Star Treks. It's characters development is present and just when you think you know what's going to happen, there are surprises so people who were fans of the previous ones won't be bored. This is a must see and I highly recommend it in 3D or IMAX 3D if you can afford it.
