Movie Review: Star Trek - Into Darkness
I won't blow the surprise on the villain, but it's a familiar name in Star Trek history. Benedict Cumberbatch is great in his role. He's a superhuman strain and can outfight, outwit, and out terrorize anybody in his path. Equally as evil is Captain Marcus (Peter Weller) and he's on "our" side. Explosions in space cripple the Enterprise as it sits on the outer edges of darkness the world of Klingon. That's not where you want to be trapped and fighting evil.
It's fun to watch Scotty be a hero, Bones grumble at lack of respect, Zoe Saldana is a strong female character, and Zulu fits as acting captain at times. All in all this space morality play is a fine film, and we can only hope that Starfleet continues to save our Earth in crisis. Star Trek: Into Darkness sheds new film light and fun.
