Angry Lurker Honest Movie Review 99: Star Trek: Into Darkness 2013 (4 STARS).....

....and Kris is giving away a lot of free stuff over on his blog for hid birthday week!

Not much more to add to what many others have said.........impressive (may contain spoilers).


When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

I enjoyed the first, no real problems, I saw this in 3D and a couple of arrows made me flinch but getting better with 3D entertainment, this is quite an excellent movie from the get go, plenty of action, great effects, a good story with great characters, some humour, could do with more action but that's just me, the main characters are growing and you can see this developing before any 5 year missions.........

We have a new Khan (bloody impressive), old style Klingons (impressive), a Tribble and a Federation that I would have loved a series on, less exploring and more blowing the crap out of things but that's just me, it really is highly entertaining even if not a fan of Star Trek and I may go see it again.....

Also this lady is in it and in this outfit......

  1. It was just a lot of fun! I liked it better than the first reboot movie. And now they can go anywhere they want with the series.

  2. With the last movie they had a clean slate. No need to follow Star Trek canon. So why just basically rewrite Wrath of Khan? Still a fun movie, just wish Mr Abrams would quit disappointing me.

    Thanks for the review, I liked the first movie and was planning to watch the new one on release. I need to check because I heard somewhere that will be not be shown in theaters until July in Spain (bizarre, isn't it?)

  11. Glad you enjoyed it...the review I've read and the reactions from my friends were all pretty negative...not that it was a bad movie just that it didn't live up to expectations and was a lot poorer than the first??

  15. I just saw it today and enjoyed it quite a bit. I was never a Trekkie, but I have managed to see all the movies. This one was by far my favorite.

  16. The Spawn saw it over the weekend and failed to tell me about the Trible. SPAAAAAWN!

  17. Tribbles! Although not a "trekkie" I do like the series and the reboot. My dad is a trekkie so I grew up watching this stuff. The Trouble with Tribbles was a favorite episode, and I liked even more when I seen the Deep Space Nine crew go back in time to the same episode.

  18. I've heard lots of good reports on this one. Again not my usual sort of film, but might see it on DVD. Thanks!

  19. Not much of a trekkie, but will surely watch it, as it's been getting great reviews

    ReplyDelete
  20. Must admit this is on the 'must see' list!

  21. Haven't had a chance to see this yet, but hope to Friday. I'm what you'd call an "old school" Trekkie, and unlike most other Trekkies, I loved the 2009 reboot, and really am looking forward to watching Into Darkness. The Abrams take on Star Trek is refreshing- more fun, less stodgy. Thank you for the review Fran. I'm beginning to use your Honest Reviews as a dependable barometer for determining what what movies I will enjoy most.

  22. I've actually never watched any Star Trek before including shows or movies.

    I just hope it's better than the game. That thing has been universally declared a piece of garbage.

  23. Little Belgium for some reason only gets it the 6th of June *cry*

  28. That photo is as good as Charlize Theron in Prometheus! That does it for me - I'm off to see it! ;-)

  29. I want to see the lady!!!! Excuse me, the movie, the movie.

    The fans of Star Trek don´t like this new series of movies because they have too much action, but I think it´s better now.

    Thank you for the report.

  30. Great to see you giving away another 4 stars!

    Want to see this one. Funny thing is... I have always been a Trekie, but never liked the original series or wanted to see the rehash of the old enterprise crew. After I made my better half watch all of TNG, DS9, Voyager, Enterprise and movies VII to X over the past two years she made me watch # XI the other week... I liked it and now i want to see the sequel! :-P

  32. We have liked Khan was one our favorite Villains... ever since I first watched "Space Seed" episode of the old show... I would love to see this guy's portrayal of this great Villain... unfortunately we have Not been to the movies in over Ten Years.... "Hannibal" was the last movie that I got to see in the Theater... just stuck here in Marshville...
