Star Trek Into Darkness
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III
The result is a colossal bore.
There are lots of flashes and bangs, but the effects are neither special nor camp enough to be more than vaguely amusing.
Their weapons make a Fourth of July sparkler show, but they almost never hit anybody.
| Original Score: 2/5
Little kids at play have come up with craftier plots, better characterization and conceivably more spectacular effects -- provided their mothers let them play with matches.
