Star Trek Into Darkness Dizzying



non-spoiler review by Wendy Gamble


     From the opening dash through a dazzling crimson forest to the downfall of the destructive but complex foe, Star Trek: Into darkness keeps you suspended in space, oblivious to reality around you.  My two teens next to me didn’t notice I left for five agonising minutes, my spouse thought I was back in two, things were moving so fast.  There’s no doubt it was an action packed extravaganza of special effects and stunning imagery.  The familiar yet freshly mysterious characters were given some room to grow, bringing touching and funny moments.  However, the pacing was off, the plot not ideal, the characterisation good but incomplete.
