Again in the captain’s chair, J.J. Abrams guides a crew of hundreds to make the visually spectacular “Star Trek Into Darkness” while proving his understanding that it is the personalities and the relationships among the diverse crewmembers who make the original television series so beloved. Combining some familiar components that early Trekkie fans will appreciate with nail-biting action and the trials of friendship, this is far from a journey into darkness. It illuminates the struggles that test friendship and loyalty. Do not fear, action junkies, the film has plenty for you, along with some appropriately placed comic relief.
