Review: 9 out of 10 stars.
This movie, while using 3D, was not overwhelming or over the board with the depths. Rather, it used the grey tone, stayed the course with original spaceships and only added the depths of the scenes with flying objects that brought the audience their voyage.
Solid plot, tight writing and each character has a balanced amount of screen time. Considering the number of characters in the movie, it’s well accomplished.
Each character acted in true tunes. Spock was, as always, witty that drew more than a few laughs but with true wisdom and logic. The crowd truly cheered on.
Chris Pine, all the closeup angles, showed his well acted skills and was definitely solid.
Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan was so “unfairly” smart, super handsome with his super skills, cool and cruel yet with his enormous desperation and dedication to his crew, yet without losing the authenticity.
The movie was just a bit over 2 hours but it felt just right and as fans burst in happiness at times while wept at others. Time flies.
Picture shown: with appearances from Simon Pegg, Alice Eve and John Cho
