After countless ifs and buts about "who that character is" and "who goes there", the time has finally arrived to see the release of Star Trek Into Darkness....
... and oh boy, was it worth the wait!
I sit here, with my official Starfleet badge (free with a large combo at the cinema...worth every penny!), trying to come to terms with the awesomeness I have just observed. Never have I looked forward to going back to the cinema to see it again... and again... and again...
To add to the awesomeness of this film, there's another plot twist. Films this year seem to be filled with them, but with the exception that: 1) This is a good twist and 2) Some people may have seen this one coming. However, with lots of mini twists and turns, you will never be bored in this film. I highly recommend seeing this in 3D, not just because 3D looks good, in this case it works to the film's advantage, blending seamlessly with the CGI. It feels like you are actually there in the most realistic way you could be without being sucked into the vacuum of space.
So we have the storyline, the CGI, the twists and turns and the cast... that just leaves the final verdict.
If I could recommend a better way of spending money I would be reviewing that instead of this. This film is a great example of how fantastic cinema can be when it's done right. Everything is perfect: it's not too long, it brings up points and actually answers them (no cliff-hangers...YES!), the cast is just right and the CGI is enough to make you stop eating your popcorn and just stare in awe... and believe me, I don't stop eating my popcorn for just anything.
All I can say to finish this is: Live Long and Prosper... And stop reading this and go see this film!!!
