Last night, I saw Star Trek Into Darkness. I have been looking forward to this movie ever since I watched Star Trek(2009). I really got excited though when Benedict Cumberbatch got involved! He plays an amazing Khan, and while Ricardo Montalban was and always will be Khan, Cumberbatch gave him a much more in depth emotional spectrum. I liked all of the throwbacks to TOS, but there were plenty of things I didn’t particularly love. First off, the relationship between Spock and Uhura Is really stupid. Sure, It gives us some funny moments like in Mudd’s ship, but that is in no way keeping true to the spirit of Trek. Also, when Spock and Kirk’s roles get reversed in the death scene, it just doesn’t feel right when Spock Yells “KHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNN”. Engineering…. Still isn’t right. And what in the world is with the Klingons???
This movie may not hold completely true to Trek, but I would not agree with those who say it is a mutilation of Trek. For those who complain about how much of the movie was on Earth, I think that it was about time we got a good look at 23rd century Earth! Trek has never shown earth beyond Star fleet academy before!
All in all, I loved the movie, and I can’t wait for the next! I’d love to hear what you guys think the next will be about!
