Last weekend, I went to see "Star Trek: Into Darkness". What can I say? I was expecting more. It's true Star Trek histories are not based on action. After all, Enterprise it's an exploring ship. But there was too much talking in the movie. The plot is very simple, predictable, and based on the interactions of the characters, like the relationship of Mr Spock and Captain Kirk. For a person that never saw any of the episodes of Star Trek series, or the old movies, won't even get some lines or some scenes (and the irony like one of the last scenes on this movie). I'm not saying that I don't like the history from the Universe of Star Trek but we have to see from this point of view: we are passing from a serie to a movie so it cannot be so much focused on the relationships as the serie, and we have way more capability then back in the old times to create action.
Zachary Quinto as Spock, makes a hell of a character. He got the paper so well. Of course, it's no Leonard Nimoy, Spock Nimoy will be always Spock Nimoy. But, Spock Zachary it's very near, in fact makes the human side of Spock more plausible. Chris Pine makes an hiperactive Captain Kirk. Yes he is a more young Captain Kirk, but still too much alive, I believe. And Lieutenant Uhura, I have nothing to say. But, my favorite actors on this movie were Karl Urban as Dr. Bones, just like the old one, grumpy and funny at the same time, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan. If all the villains had the looks and voice of Khan, I would be on the wrong side. I would fall asleep with the sound of his voice. Totally amazing! And he makes a cold and pshyco Khan.
The special effects are aweome! About technical errors on the plot, I found one or two, but nothing more.
In the end, it was a good story of this new parallel universe on the Star Trek history. Let's see if more movies comes out, witth less talking, and more killing.
