Star Trek into Darkness: Gut Reactions
This was a lot better than Star Trek (2009). It had a villain that you could clearly define and feel justified in loathing. To my first generation Trekker friends (those of us who loved Star Trek long before the 2009 film) all I can say is you will like this movie and probably with a range of confusion to irritation with this film for those same reasons. I also ponder if Nicholas Meyer should be getting a little something for his contributions to this movie....but we'll talk about that later. To those of you that only started watching after the 2009 movie, you will likely not regret your decision to see installment number 2 from the Bad Robot folks.
Go enjoy the experience of seeing a Star Trek movie. You can hen and haw about it afterwards to your hearts delight.
