Star Trek into Darkness moves along at warp speed through a journey with the simple question of how far would you go for family?
Whilst Benedict Cumberbatch surprises no one with the high calibre of his villain, the films centre is the relationship between Kirk and Spock; both funny and touching. This trek hits all the high notes, though only in the broadest sense, and not particularly darkly.
Those looking for depth and more than a passing glance at most of the cast will be disappointed. But Abrams knows how to deliver on fun and spectacle and doesn’t fail us.
