Matt's Review of Star Trek Into Darkness
Star Trek Into Darkness(2013)
"Into Darkness" offers a thrilling and viscerally exciting new chapter to the "Star Trek" saga. Full of stunning special effects, an incredible cast, and a whole lot of fun, the newest Trek is a fast-paced and action-packed story that maintains the standard set by the first film.
Very much a modern Spielbergian tale, this bromantic Star Trek is the newest film from what I consider one of the greatest powerhouse teams of storytelling of our generation- with JJ Abrams at the helm, Damon Lindelof behind the script, and Michael Giacchino returning to recreate the beautiful soundtrack.
It may not break new ground, and some of the dialogue is just a little too cutesy, but why nitpick in the midst of such an incredibly enjoyable and fun ride through space with such great characters? "Star Trek: Into Darkness" delivers everywhere it needed to.
