Forbes - Review: Star Trek Into Darkness's Alternate Vision Of Mediocrity

Forbes - Star Trek: Into Darkness, directed by J.J. Abrams, opens in movies theaters across the U.S. today. The film [avoiding spoilers] centers around the U.S.S. Enterprise’s mission to find and stop an indomitable super-man, John Harrison, who led a deadly attack on Starfleet headquarters in San Francisco. He appears to be a former agent of the top-secret Starfleet Section 31 organization. Captain Kirk, whose ship is armed with powerful ultra-destructive photon torpedoes, leads the crew to Kronos on a manhunt for Harrison for the purpose of destroying him as a deadly threat to the Federation and its ideals. When Kirk and his crew arrive on Kronos, he discovers a different truth about Harrison, and the field of battle takes a dangerous and climactic turn for humanity and for Earth’s future. (PC, PS3, Star Trek, Xbox 360) -

It was a good movie. Some good twists.

Some things you could see coming.

Also some things which in the beginning you're not sure why they went a certain direction with the story, but then later you go oh...now I understand.

If you can get over the brief uncertainty then you'll like. Just also realize while they're still developing characters, it's not the same as the first one where some of the good aspects of the first one was how they introduced the characters.

I will say this, they do have a funny way of combining aspects from a couple of original trek films and flipping the script 180 degrees and finishing it out in 10 minutes. I thought that was interesting.
