Product Description

Pioneering director J.J. Abrams delivers an explosive action thriller that takes ‘Star Trek Into Darkness.’ When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

A good portion of Trekkies (or Trekkers, depending on one's level of Star Trek obsession) have special affection for episodes of the original TV series that related to Earth and other-Earth cultures visited by the crew of the Enterprise, version 1.0. Some of the shows unfolded in distorted forms of the past, some in the present day of Star Trek's future reality. Director J.J. Abrams recognized the importance of this relationship in his origin-story reboot of the franchise in 2009, and in Star Trek Into Darkness he has made it an even greater touchstone to the roots of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry's defining philosophy from nearly 50 years ago. The human home world is key to the plot of this spectacularly bold leap into Star Trek lore, which cleverly continues along the alternate path that was established as separate from the "original" Star Trek universe in Abrams's first whiz-bang crack at advancing the mythology. But it's not just Earth that is cool and imperiled in this rendering of adventure in the 23rd century; Into Darkness also plays with the original conceit that Earthlings were member to a multi-species United Federation of Planets ruled by a "Prime Directive" of noninterference with other civilizations. The conflict comes when rogue elements in the Earth-based Starfleet Command hunger to shift focus from peaceful exploration to militarization, a concept that is anathema to the crew of the Enterprise and her ongoing mission. The new cast is again inventively reunited, each of them further investing their characters with traits that reveal novel acting choices while staying true to the caricatures that are ingrained in our popular culture. The interplay between Chris Pine as Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock is deeper, and Zoe Saldana as Uhura is a solid third in their relationship. John Cho (Sulu), Simon Pegg (Scotty), Anton Yelchin (Chekov), and Karl Urban (McCoy) all have standout roles in the overall ensemble mystique as well as the plot-heavy machinations of this incarnation's narrative. Fortunately, the burdens of the story are well served by some important additions to the cast. Benedict Cumberbatch's Shakespearean aura, ferociously imperious gaze, and graceful athleticism make him a formidable villain as the mysterious Starfleet operative John Harrison. Harrison has initiated a campaign of terror on Earth before leading the Enterprise to even greater dangers in the enemy territory of Klingon-controlled space. That his background may make dedicated Trekkies/Trekkers gasp is just one acknowledgment of the substantial and ingrained legacy Star Trek has borne. There are many references, nods and winks to those with deep reverence for the folklore (some of them perhaps a little too close to being inside-baseball), though the fantastical and continually exciting story stands as an expertly crafted tale for complete neophytes. Another new face is Peter Weller--iconically famous in sci-fi-dom as RoboCop--here playing a steely, authoritative Starfleet bigwig who may also be following a hidden agenda. Not only is he running a covert operation, he's also at the helm of a fearsome secret starship that looms over the Enterprise like a shark poised to devour its prey. Which brings us to the awesome CGI effects driving the dazzling visual style of Into Darkness and the endlessly fascinating cosmos it makes real. The wow factor extends from the opening set piece on an alien world of primitive humanoids, garish vegetation, and a roiling volcano to the finale of destruction in a future San Francisco that is elegantly outfitted with gleaming-spired skyscrapers and all manner of flying vehicles. (London also gets a breathtaking 23rd-century makeover). With a coolness that glistens in every immaculately composed shot, the movie never forgets that humanism and creativity make the myriad design details and hyper-technology pop out as much more than eye candy. The biggest achievement of Star Trek Into Darkness is that it hews to the highest standard of a highly celebrated tradition. Though Kirk and co. may bend it a little, the Prime Directive remains unbroken. --Ted Fry

I am a huge fan of the first Star Trek reboot; it is a movie I can return to and immerse myself in an alternate world. It has action, drama and humour; the latter being requisite to take popcorn movies out of overly dismal places. So I did have some trepidation over the "into darkness" part of the title. I love Star Trek, but it is in the end escapism for hard working people with a silly streak (like me) who want to get out of the sturm and stress of the world. Fortunately, the darkness isn't overdone, the humour is intact and we have a story that gets better with repeat viewings. A skinny Englishman like Benedict Cumberbatch shouldn't make a great villain (we all know who the villain is by now, right?) but he is skilled and charismatic, delivering both menace and gravitas to his role. Chris Pine is better cast than people like to admit and Zarachy Quinto is for sure Leonard Nimoy's heir. Zoe Saldana eats up the screen. We see less of Scotty and Bones in this than I would have liked but this movie remains first rate entertainment and a welcome addition to the Star Trek universe.

More believable than the first one with the new actors. The close ups showed more intensity in the acting and Kirk showed a little more of the Shatner intensity and belief in the Star Fleet principles. I thought I saw this at the bar scene with Admiral Pike when Kirk was given a second chance as a First Officer. Lying in his Captain's log seemed beyond belief but was explained since this time line needed Kirk to have different life experiences to gain the proper perspective.
The Zachary Quinto scene where he was tearing up was a little hard to stomach the first time I saw it in the theaters but seemed a more tolerable now that I have had a year to get used to it. Quinto and Pine just didn't seem that close and seemed at odds most of the time so tearing up was still too much especially when Nimoy only became emotional when under some alien influence. Quinto did lose Vulcan and his mother so maybe that is why.
Khan character has received criticism for not being as genuine as Ricardo Montalbon. I did see a little of him being portrayed in the more dramatic scenes by Benedict Cumberbatch.
Nice to see Nimoy again in this one. Curious that not even an honorable mention of Nimoy's name on the DVD jacket though. I did see his name clearly separated in the movie credits. Felt his description of how Khan was stopped in his time line was cut off and should have at least been available on the deleted scenes. Almost funny when he said Khan was stopped at great cost since Spock was the great cost. Obvious Segway to the Spock death scene in the movie Wrath of Khan. I thought it almost funny when Nimoy said "...at great cost..." because it seemed like the only way to defeat Khan was for one main character to die.

STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS [2013] [3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray + Digital Copy] [UK Release] Action-Packed Adventure!

The 2013 best-rated blockbuster is nothing short of “spectacular” [Empire]. When a ruthless mastermind known as Khan [Benedict Cumberbatch] declares a one-man war on the Federation. Captain Kirk [Chris Pine], Spock [Zachery Quinto], and the daring crew of the USS Enterprise, set out on their most explosive manhunt of all time. It will take everything in their arsenal to defend Earth and eliminate Khan’s deadly threat in J.J. Abrams “exhilarating blockbuster.”

I'm old enough to remember the original Star Trek series, and I have a deep affection for it despite its obvious flaws. I was ready to despise this latest reboot when Star Trek was released in 2009, but some terrific choices were made and I left the theater grinning. I was delighted with the casting choices four years ago, and how this new version of Star Trek gave enough nods to the original without going over the top.

So, I have been anticipating the release of Star Trek Into Darkness ever since the credits rolled on the last entry. I was not disappointed.

What do you want from a Star Trek movie? The world has changed over the past 45 years, and action is an essential element of any science fiction movie. Special effects rule, and the budget can be enormous for proven franchises that simply can't fail at the box office. There is certainly no lack of action in this movie, and it doesn't waste any time in surfacing. Kirk and some of the crew are shown fleeing the inhabitants of a primitive planet, after trying to prevent a volcano from destroying it. The fast cuts look like something out of a Bourne movie, and provide the first adrenaline rush. There are no shortage of similar moments over the remaining two hours.

While I loved Star Trek (2009), it was pretty light on story. It served as a vehicle to introduce the new crew, and did so splendidly, but the actual story wasn't particularly memorable. That's not to say that it wasn't tremendously enjoyable. What Into Darkness does is develop on that strong foundation. We learn more about the characters, and what binds them together, but this time we're also given a story with more depth.

The story is built around the hunt for John Harrison, who is a man that seems out to destroy the Federation. Who is he?
