Star Trek Into Darkness Review

Chris Pine returns to the big screen as Jim Kirk in the all new action packed film 'Star Trek Into Darkness'.

In this series, we join Kirk as he takes the next step in his journey on the Starship Enterprise  Along side him on this Journey, Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the crew are back. Each with their own story. Next to the cast what was the best part of this film? The special effects.

When doing space scenes, you can do one of two things. You can make it look like you are hanging rocks on role and filming at night in your back yard or you can make it epic. J.J. Abrams makes it BEYOND EPIC! Some of the best parts are whenever you see the Enterprise flying, it makes any Star Trek fan proud. The TV/Online trailers for this film only show you a small part of the action filled effects of this movie.

Let's talk about the person on everyone's mind for this film, Benedict Cumberbatch. Now I watch the UK TV series 'Sherlock', so when I heard that he was going to join the cast I knew he was going to bring great things to the big screen. Now I can't tell you much about his story because I don't want to mess up seeing the film for anyone, so I will just talking about his acting. Just like the base of Spock, he is really fantastic at showing no emotion at all. I think his time as Sherlock Holmes, makes him that much better in this role.

I am a fan of William Shatner and thank him for bringing the role of Captain Kirk alive in the first place, that being said I believe Chris Pine plays the best Kirk ever. My favorite part about his role is how he brings you fully into Kirk's life journey. What I am about to say is true about the whole crew of the USS Enterprise, you can truly feel the emotion in every scene. Chris Pine will now be known as Jim Kirk forever.

Now let's talk about the character that can be play by two marvelous actors at once, leaving room for them both to be the best ever. Who am I speaking of? None other then SPOCK. In this film he is played by Zachary Quinto, who in my mind has earn a spot right next to his movie co-star from the first film aka the original, the classic, the famous Leonard Nimoy.

The whole cast is a grand group of actors and each bring so much to this film in their own ways. Now a ship can't fly without a Captain and a film can't play without a Director. Let's talk about the man behind the film aka J.J. Abrams. If he can take the upcoming Star Wars movie to the levels has taken the Star Trek films, then we are in for another great series of movies from the saga. J.J. and the writing team tell such an 'on the edge of your seats' story that you will want to see it again and again.

If you are a Star Trek fan then kick it into warp speed and get to a theater now! Even if you are new to the Star Trek world, go see this film and see what has everyone glued to their seats.
