Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
Star Trek is one of the foundational franchises in science fiction history. The original 1966 TV series was a groundbreaking show that spawned even more shows and a dozen feature films. So it’s well worth checking out for any fan of sci-fi movies.
Star Trek Into Darkness follows the 2009 reboot that redefined the USS Enterprise and its crew, without ignoring the franchise’s long history. Into Darkness might be a bit disappointing to longtime fans of the show and movies, due to liberal recycling of older plots. But for anyone who just wants an entertaining, exciting sci-fi romp, Into Darkness certainly delivers.
Oh, and Netflix denizens will likely appreciate Benedict “Sherlock” Cumberbatch’s performance as the villain of the film.
