Ok, if you’re going to read this blog, you must understand that I am a wee bit of a Trekkie. “Oh God! No!” you may scream as you stare at the naughty words “Live long and prosper” on this very movie review blog. Well, yes. I am, and I am so very sorry. On top of that, I adore Benedict Cumberbatch, so when they announced his role as the villain Jim Harrison/Khan, I was exorbitantly happy to say the very least. Anyway, so I went into the theater with high hopes, and I’m glad to say that those expectations were met! I think the CGI was amazing, if you’re not a special effects or cinematography nerd and typically don’t care about that sort of stuff; Into Darkness will open your eyes. (That sounds ironic, whoops.) The storyline is a wee tacky, and pretty predictable, but once you get over that it’s pretty good. I mean, it’s a science fiction. There’s a good chance that if a film belongs in that category, it WILL get outlandish and ridiculous, but that’s the beauty of a great imagination and the magic of Hollywood, my friends. JJ Abrams once again captures the audience in such a manner that you can’t help but hold on for the ride.
I don’t really know what else to say about this movie besides the fact that I adored it. I love this concept, I love where it went, I just loved it. I’m sure this wouldn’t necessarily tickle everyone’s fancy, but I would recommend watching it if you have a taste for adventure and exploring the infinite abyss, the final frontier, something that has captured my curiosity for ages.
