Star Trek Into Darkness Review
The plot does not hold up to scrutiny. Even after Spock gives them transwarp beaming equations in the 2009 Epic, there is no way humans should be able to transport far past the passibility of star ship travel. In fact the enterprise is set to go on a deep space 5 year mission which would take it deep into uncharted territories like the klingon homeworld, however it travels to Qonos (said planet) in less then a day in this movie.
They never answer why they can not transport spock into a vulcano when they can transport him out extremely easily. Nor do they explain how Section 31 who has damaged records about Khan, know where his ship is and miraculously revive only him and not the whole crew. Next up is why do they need Khans DNA to save Kirk when they have a whole ship of Augment DNA which should have the magical healing factor in it.
Beyond the lack of space battles, if you suspend logic (Vulcan pun intended) it does tell a riveting tale. The captains assassination scene is purely epic. The klingon battle on Qonos is epic. Spock allows his brutal warrior out. And I will be going to see this again.
I give STID a strong B Plus rating.
