Remember when Star Trek was about space exploration? Now it’s just about itself. —
Andy Diggle accurately sums up my problems with Star Trek Into Darkness: it is a lazy, uninspired self-referential rehash of older Trek stories given a post-9/11 dramatic undercurrent. There are occasional moments that spark or awe, but all the fun, wit & charm of the 2009 reboot has been otherwise sucked out. A film experience to endure, rather than enjoy (and boy, did it drag in the last 45 minutes or so).
If you like any of the actors involved (and no doubt fans of Benedict Cumberbatch will get ther money’s worth), it works on that level, but all the lens flare J.J. Abrams could muster can’t hide the fact that - for the most part - it’s a disappointingly joyless & predictable slog.(via brentkeane)
