Well after seeing the prequel of sorts to this prequel of sorts I fell in love with the cast that portray the crew of the U.S.S Enterprise in their youthful prime. Young Kirk (Chris Pine who is brilliant as Kirk may I mention?) Zachary Quinto is the young Spock and I wont fore mention any of the rest of the cast but let me say they are all brilliant as well.

The thing about Into The Darkness that didn't bother me mind you however I am just wondering what the tie ins to Star Trek 2 The Wrath Of Khan are with the character Khan Noonien Singh (Now portrayed brilliantly by young Benedict Cumberbatch ) I mean will they exile him and his 72 followers to a planet such as City Alpha 5 as what happened during the 60's show episode 'Space Seed' and then finding him and his followers in the motion picture Wrath of Khan. In Into Darkness director Abrams never mentioned Khan's wife either which if you Trekkies out there remember was the reason for his hatred towards James T. Kirk to begin with? Anyhow will have to watch the flick again at another time and maybe i'm missing some facts ...who knows?

The film is just as great as it's predecessor with cool alien planets, revamped Klingons, a cameo by Leonard Nimoy as Spock in the future as well as a super sci-fi with loads of eye candy for those that love that sort of thing as I do. I enjoyed it immensely!

Star Trek Into Darkness Review comment

Star Trek Into Darkness is one of those films that is extremely enjoyable to watch, but a day later I wanted to see it again because of things that did not quite add up. Plot developments of the movie vs. the TV show didn't bother me since I was never a fan of the original series. Insignificant details like the father-daughter characters. Why is one British and the other not? Why did the doctor need Khan's blood to save Jim when he knew how to open the capsules? I will enjoy repeated viewings …
