Star Trek: Into Darkness – Review

The cultural TV phenomenon that is Star Trek has been gracing our screens for the past six decades – making it one of the most successful and loved franchises on the planet – or universe.

In 2009, visionary director and producer, J.J. Abrams, undertook the formidable task of relaunching the Star Trek franchise for the big screen, and by doing so breath new life into one of the most successful shows of all time and capture a new generation of ‘Trekies’ – well needless to say his hard work paid off and a new blockbuster franchise was born.

It’s now a few years on from their first outing and the new crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are about to come up against their most formidable foe yet, the War Criminal known only as Kahn (Benedict Cumberbatch).

It’s up to Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and the crew of the Enterprise to hunt down this one man weapon before it’s too late – but all is not as it seems, and Captain Kirk must trust in his fellow crew members Spock (Zachary Quinto), Bones (Karl Urban), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), and Scotty (Simon Pegg), if he is to overcome this threat.

With an incredible cast, gripping story, and out of this world CGI, Star Trek: Into Darkness is a stunningly-crafted, mind-blowing spectacle that will take you on an adrenaline fueled journey to the edges of space – and leave you asking for more.
