"J.J. Abrams revitalised the Star Trek film franchise with his 2009 entry, and now its sequel Star Trek Into Darkness is upon us. In promotional materials leading up to release, the destruction of our world has been promised by a man named John Harrison (Benedict Cumberpatch) – a menacing man of unknown origin/motivations. And while Star Trek Into Darkness deals with securing and protecting humanity’s safety in the galaxy, it also explores personal stories along the way. But does Star Trek Into Darkness “boldly go where no man has gone before”?"
