Loved the reboot I can't wait for the sequel
just home from the new trecky movie,this is a must see in imax thanks entertainment .ie for the experience,ever gratefull kev,ps live long and prosper.
Bring it on !
I went to see this because I'm a huge Benedict Cumberbatch fan, so maybe I'm not the target audience. I don't know if it was the script or the direction but the over acting was horrific to watch. It was full of big emotional scenes charting the growing bromance between Kirk and Spock that had me yawning. But worst of all the storyline failed to follow the reality curve, ie you can mess with all sorts of things in a sci-fi/ fantasy movie but it has to have some bearing to reality to make it believable, for example in this movie Kirk gets a massive dose of radiation at one stage, radiation sickness makes your hair fall out, you bleed from your eyes and vomit blood. But chris pine has a very moving scene where his very pretty face is untouched. Very disappointed, all you Cumberb**ches out there, just wait for the next series of Sherlock.
Saw Into Darkness last night. So refreshing to walk out of a cinema feeling like you have just watched a very well made film ( they are so rare these days) JJ Abrams has been proving his skill for storytelling, character development since the wonderful TV series ALIAS, another favourite of mine. Star Trek Into Darkness I can happily report is an excellent sequel to Star Trek. There is action, drama, comedy. romance and a compelling storyline as well as excellent effects!! Cumberbatch is compelling as the baddie in this feature... outstanding performance!!! Looking forward to the next installment and I have every faith in Abrams venture into the next Star Wars film! Bring it on!
I was really looking forward to this film but I came away a bit disappointed . seeing it in 3d is a must though as you really feel every explosion and punch . its well acted but a bit too long , also I felt that jj abrams tried too hard to cram too many storylines in to the film ,overall an enjoyable funny film but does not live up to the hype at all.
As a Trekker, I quite enjoyed it. I loved the little nods like the tribble and Bones' classic "I'm a doctor..." line. It was a busy film though, with a lot of twists and turns. This parallel Trek universe does make me slightly concerned though. If the Klingons are in the next one, will we see the return of Kruge (Christopher Lloyd's character in The Search For Spock)?
Brutal. The writers should be sued for plagiarism.
And JJ, enough of the lens flares. It's annoying.
This is a another block buster for sure. I really enjoyed it, as the story is great, and Benedict Cumberbatch as the baddy is outstanding. He has a great menacing voice, (something which has become almost a staple ingredient in recent films) as well as a real sense of purpose. The main Star Trek crew themselves have taken on more of the characteristics of the original members this time round, which adds a sense of continuity to the whole franchise. I think with this film, Star Trek is once again the front runner in space adventure films, and to say that there will be a sequel is a understatement , there will be a non ending line of them.
4 stars movie definitely , not 3 or 5 . Lots of action at parts was abit too much and over the top . I am glad that finally seat belts were invented in the future and crew are not thrown off their seats during battles as in all previous episodes and TV series . I found it ridiculous that on a ship with so many crew ,the captain has to constantly leave the ship with couple of his buddies to fight the baddies on a surface of the planet , also why not the leave the ship's shield up all the time during danger times instead of getting hit first and then putting up again .too much emphasizes on sacrificing yourself for others . good movie over all. why entertainment .ie has no moderator here and also allow thumb up or down for comments posted ?
Went to see this in the IMAX. Totally enjoyed it, though I might just go and see it again in 2d.looking forward to the next one.
some serious plot holes at the end but overall very enjoyable.
Enjoyable but I'm old, preferred Star Trek, The Wrath of Khan.
excellent follow up to the reboot. highly recommended. with this and Iron Man 3, the summer season is off to a great start!!
I loved the Wrath of Khan. It's been described as the best B-movie ever made, which isn't an unfair call. It was my favorite Star Trek movie from the day it came out in 1982 until today. Today we just saw Into Darkness. Wow - they definitely pulled out all the Trek stops here! And pulled them to very good effect. This is by far the best action movie I have seen in a very long time.The SFX are impressive and the camerawork (saw it in 3D) was great. The storyline is just chewy enough to keep you interested between chases and battles. And the characters are not left out (no "Hailing frequencies open" stuff for the bridge crew. JJ, ya did good. Some folks here have said that the movie is lacking, because it didn't look like real Trek. I actually DO know what that means. And to these folks I say, "we've been there for 3 years in 1966, 6 movies (which were mostly good), 17 years under Next Gen style, and their 4 movies, most of which were relative flops. Personally I think the mojo was lost after First Contact. Box office attendance at these movies proved this out." The mojo IS with JJ Abrams. Our problem may be that the mojo gets lost to Star Wars. Lets hope not.
ok at the risk of a spoiler the sight of Captain Kirk trying to kickstart the Enterprise like a seventies 2 stroke motorbike summed up for me why this was a boring sequel to a good original.. and as for poor bundersnatch ..well he's a proper typecast sherlock...as a baddie...nope .the plot was badly mapped and had no conclusion and actually no confrontation so not all the homages to the original can save these flaws. the .problem with JJ is that he is getting robotic and predictable and like the Bond franchise the worse no doubt has yet to come. Oh don't bother with 3D ..so please remove star.
