Star Trek Into Darkness Review

star-trek-into-darkness04

Abrams directs with flair and flares to deliver an old fashioned sci-fi epic as jaw dropping action beats conquer facts and reality.

In this visually stunning 3D bonanza, Pine, Pegg and Urban all hit the right notes with Quinto, in particular, delivering a turn of enduring strength and emotional depth.

The much publicised, delightfully malevolent Cumberbatch thrives on his material, yet he deserves so much more.

It’s not perfect: the additional characters (Weller & Eve) grate with back stories that never truly fit. Plus where the first act astounds, the second and third entertain yet never render you speechless.

TL;DR: Cumberbatch and Quinto steal the show, with the film’s ferocious energy (almost) conquering its faults.

RATING: 4/5
