Into Darkness falls short of its reboot predecessor largely because of pacing issues, a lack of locations, and a bloated ending that doesn't seem to know when to end. All that said, this is still a fun film.
Okay, so the big 'secret' twist that was never really a secret to anyone aside, I *really* dug this sequel and all of the developing relationships between the crew, and I'm happy to watch this group in however many films they want to make together.
Benedict Cumberbatch is delightful as the villain, as you'd expect him to be. I have yet to dislike any role that he's taken on.
170301: Wow, I love this new cast and this episode is just plain fun. Hints of another time line, a familiar villain and vaguely similar Birds of Prey. The film started out right for me with the colours represented on the inhabitants of the planet Nibiru, a very cool yet primitive species. The thrills continued throughout including the introduction of the USS Vengeance and more great characters including Admiral Marcus and his beautifully spirited daughter, Carol. Looking forward to bold new adventures with this cast. Features Leonard Nemoy's last appearance in film.
