Re: Star Trek Into Darkness

Ok, I just saw the movie Star Trek: Into Darkness, and my overall reaction/rating is that it's a 2 or 2.5 out of 4 stars; it wouldn't take too much for me to go to 1.5, but to be fair, I guess 2-2.5 is appropriate. I'm disappointed it's only taken this reboot effort 2 movies to already be tempted to steal so much from one of the "great" trek movies-- that being The Wrath of Khan. My reaction to the Kirk dying scene where they quote I shall forever be your friend...blah blah was that it was really cheap-- an attempt to make this movie better by stealing from another movie, and when it doesn't come off great, then it just looks cheap and dishonest. Can't come up with great story and tension on their own through truly original plot, so let's just steal it from somewhere else. Boo, hiss, cheap. The movie has great action scenes, but those wear thin when the story/plot is just not thought out well enough. I personally would appreciate more attempt at storytelling, and plot development, and less of the mindless, loud actions sequences. If the next Star Trek reboot movie doesn't go anywhere more than this one, then the reboot will be shortlived, and not bound to go to many more frontiers.
