Star Trek: Into Darkness = Five Stars: No Dark Ones


So, if you're a trek fan like me, then you've probably already seen this movie before reading this review. If you consider yourself a "trekkie" then you and a friend saw it at midnight a week ago.

For those of you that haven't seen this movie or need confirmation that it was a great film then this review is for you.

The movie is light on plot with plot many elements and themes borrowed. That statement will really hit home with the twist in the film. I won't give anything away, but just remember … with J.J. Abrams Star Trek, we are on an alternate timeline than the original 60's series and original movies would have us on.

That alternate timeline was created by the "old Spock" in the last film.

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch plays the villain in the film with a Voldermort vibe - hell bent on destroying Hogwarts … wait … wrong movie. Well, that will make sense when you it.

The production quality of this movie is amazing. Excellent design and incredible detail while maintaining a small homage to previous generations of trek franchises.

Saying too much about this movie will give it away due to the simplicity of the plot.

This movie needs to be seen in the theater.
