You’ll Hate This If: You hate lens flares, sci-fi, and fun.
The Short and Skinny:
The USS Enterprise is under attack. Where is it coming from? Could it be from within? Star Trek Into Darkness follows Captain Kirk as he leads an manhunt to a war-zone in a search and seizure mission to capture the jack-of-all-trades, weapon-of-mass-destruction, villain extraordinaire, Khan.
If you’re a Star Trek fan, you’ll be happy to hear lines from some of your favorites – The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. This film is riddled with winks to long-time fans. Don’t worry, though, if you’re a newbie! There’s plenty to keep you entertained! Everything from the emotional bromance between Kirk and Spock to the edge of your seat action will make you want to go back for seconds. While it is difficult to replicate the the sheer magic and uniqueness of the 2009 Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness is a solid follow-up.
