Star Trek movies series are hubby favorite movies. So, when the latest movie: Star Trek Into Darkness released last weekend, he just directly dragged me to the nearest movie studio, since when we tried to buy the ticket at IMAX studio, it’s sold out. And it’s midnight show . Even we missed IMAX version, at least we got 3D show.
At the first, my intention just to accompany my hubby, but end up I like this movie. It’s entertained me, and even I awaked along the show even it’s midnight show. Well, most of time, I fell a sleep in the midnight show, especially for boring movie .
As per other movie review, I took the plot this movie from Wikipedia. I only write things that made me impressed or some learning points.
I like this movie since it’s entertained me. The story is predictable, but it will not make you boring. As usual, since this is science fiction movie, the special effects in this movie are amazing.
One thing made me stunning, from Spook conversation why he looks like doesn’t have emotion. He said he experienced too much bad feelings and bad events in the past, and after those incidents he prefer doesn’t involve too much emotions. He choose logic comparing emotion. Well maybe such a defense system, since he avoids to feel hurts. But this conversation explained me, why I experienced ‘numb’ situation when some bad events hurts me too much few months ago. I know, my situation much better, but it’s explained me a lot.
I learned also from this movie that when we face dilematic situation, we need to re-check before we choose which way to go. In this case, when Captain James Kirk, made wrong the decision to believe Harison.
Below is the plot from this movie that I took from Wikipedia:
The USS Enterprise is sent to the planet Nibiru to observe a primitive civilization. Captain James T. Kirk violates the Prime Directive when Spock’s life is jeopardized, exposing the Enterprise to the planet’s civilization during the rescue. Called back to Earth, Kirk is demoted to first officer and Admiral Christopher Pike re-assumes command of the Enterprise. The two attend an emergency meeting at Starfleet Command to discuss the bombing of a secret Section 31 installation in London, perpetrated by former Starfleet agent John Harrison. The meeting is attacked by a gunship piloted by Harrison, who kills Pike. Kirk destroys the gunship, but Harrison flees. With Pike dead, Kirk is reinstated as the Enterprise’s captain. Discovering that Harrison has fled to the Klingon homeworld of Kronos, Kirk receives permission from Admiral Alexander Marcus to hunt down Harrison. The Enterprise is supplied with 72 long-range prototype photon torpedoes, and is ordered to fire them at Harrison’s location once he is found.
Arriving at Kronos, an away team comprised of Kirk, Spock, and Uhura land to find Harrison, but are surrounded by Klingons. Harrison wipes out the Klingons and confronts the away team, but surrenders after learning the precise number of photon torpedoes aimed at him. Returning to the Enterprise, Harrison reveals his true identity: Khan Noonien Singh, a genetically engineered superhuman who was awakened from his 300-year cryo sleep by Admiral Marcus to develop advanced weapons for war against the Klingon Empire. The torpedoes are found to contain cryo pods with his colleagues inside, held hostage by Marcus.
The Enterprise is soon intercepted by a Federation battleship, the USS Vengeance, designed by Khan and commanded by Admiral Marcus. Marcus demands Kirk hand over Khan, but Kirk refuses. The Enterprise warps to Earth to have Khan stand trial, but is attacked by the Vengeance in Earth’s orbit. With the Enterprise severely damaged, Kirk offers to hand over Khan and the 72 bodies in cryo sleep in exchange for the lives of his crew, but Marcus refuses and orders the Enterprise’s destruction. The Vengeance suddenly suffers a power outage caused by Montgomery Scott, who had infiltrated the ship after following coordinates relayed by Khan through Kirk. Kirk allies himself with Khan and boards the Vengeance, where they take the bridge. Khan betrays Kirk and takes control of the Vengeance, killing Marcus.
Khan negotiates with Spock, beaming Kirk and his boarding party back to the Enterprise in exchange for the 72 torpedoes, planning to destroy the Enterprise. Spock instead beams armed torpedoes to the Vengeance, keeping the cryo pods on the Enterprise. The torpedoes incapacitate the Vengeance, and both damaged ships start descending towards Earth. Kirk re-aligns the Enterprise’s warp core, enabling the crew to regain control of the ship, but contracts fatal radiation poisoning in the process. The Vengeance crashes in downtown San Francisco, where Spock pursues Khan as he tries to escape. Leonard McCoy discovers that Khan’s blood may revive Kirk, and Uhura prevents Spock from killing Khan, whom they capture instead.
In the aftermath, Kirk is revived and returns to duty as captain of the Enterprise. Khan is sealed into his cryo pod and stored away with his colleagues. As the film ends, a restored Enterprise is re-christened and departs for a five-year mission of exploration.
