Movie review: Star Trek: Into Darkness


It is one awesome film everyone should watch

Ok this was my review in a line, many countries have not yet got this movie and despite of heavy spoilers floating around I am going to keep it as spoiler free as possible.


Star Trek followers the alternate universe reboot of Star Trek in 2009 and if you still don’t like the idea of rebooting then you’ll hate the movie, otherwise it is as epic as first part. There are a lot of clever nods to the original series.

Although the movie is predictable and has its own flaws but which movies don’t have them these days? There are a lot of plotholes in this movie for example the headquarters and undercover operations have no defense mechanisms in case of an attack despite previous experiences. Despite that this movie shines because of solid acting given by every cast member.

Despite of having such amazing cast, the main baddie Benedict Cumberbatch shines above all. He was simply brilliant with each line he spoke and the every moment he simply beats everyone. Zachry Quinto is perfect as Spock and humorous at the same time. Rest of the cast with Chris Pine, Zoey Saldana and Karl Urban are simply awesome. The characters have a balance among each other.A lot of actors that didn’t get big roles in the reboot get the spotlight here. Simon Pegg’s Scotty is basically the star of the film, almost as much as Kirk or Spock. Anton Yelchin’s Chekov also gets a bigger role here, and really none of the characters get overlooked.

The movie is so fast paced that audience won’t feel bored at any point ever. For older trekkies this movie is filled with references and easter eggs. The score of the film is mindblowing and so are the visual effects.

In the end despite its flaws there was no way to make this movie better than it was. My rating for this movie will be 4/5
