Star Trek Into Darkness

I got back a bit ago from watching Paramount Pictures’ Star Trek Into Darkness.  I will try not to give too many spoilers, but there are a few in here.  You have been warned.

Honestly, I haven’t decided how I feel about it.  There is a corrupt Star Fleet Admiral, but it isn’t Star Trek: Insurrection.  There is Section 31, but this isn’t Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.  There is a main character who dies but then comes back to life.  But this isn’t Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.  There is a lovers quarrel in the middle of a really important mission, but it isn’t Stark Trek: Voyager.  In some ways, it feel like JJ Abrams has taken what he thinks is the best lines and scenes from  earlier episodes and movies, change them a bit, and use them here.  Watching this movie however, there are times that I am not sure which one is Spock and which one is Kirk as they both seem to be doing what the other character would do.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie, and I hope for the continued release of new Star Trek material.  But I’m not sure it was the right sequel for Star Trek (2009).
