Well, this was pretty damn good. Much better than the second one, which I know isn’t saying a whole lot since most people find Into Darkness to be pretty disappointing, but yeah, it’s a really fun flick that feels more like the fun we had with the first movie. I also quite liked the way they shot a lot of the scenes inside that space station, playing with gravity, which made for some thrilling visuals. This got me excited for the franchise again, and I’m looking forward to the next one – and I hope that Sofia Boutella’s character (pictured) sticks with the crew, as she was a great addition.
I’m pretty sure the first J.J. Star Trek film is my favorite Hollywood film of the past decade, and damn if this wasn’t great too. Had so much fun watching it, and just like the first one, loved it for its fantastic mix of action, effects, characters, humor, and sci-fi goodness. Already can’t wait for the next one.
