Film Review: Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
Star Trek Into Darkness (2012). Directed by JJ Abrams. The story starts shortly after the events of the first film. The Enterprise gang have been sent to observe an M class planet, but discover the volcano on it is about to erupt and kill the primitive humanoids that live near it. Captain James T Kirk (Chris Pine) tries to save the humanoids by luring them away from their village, while Commander Spock (Zachary Quinto) lowers a cold fusion bomb into the volcano to try and freeze it. Star Trek Into Darkness is a fun enough romp. It has plenty of action, great effects, a well paced story, a great cast, a believable villain, and even the odd well played homage thrown in. The only real issue for me was that it just didn't offer anything original, which is inevitable really. Fans of the first film should get as much of a kick out of this one. 4/5 (Good)
