Star Trek Into Darkness is a fantastic, emotionally-charged thrill ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat for its entire run time.
After any great reboot, the bar is set high for the inevitable sequel. 2009's Star Trek was an undeniably well-done film - immensely entertaining, full of emotion and very successful at reintroducing the classic characters. Above all, it made the franchise appealing for a modern audience, especially for someone like me who was not raised a Star Trek fan. Now, the stakes are higher for the team behind the previous film. With Star Trek Into Darkness, has J.J. Abrams proved that the revitalized franchise is here to stay?
