My response to Star Trek: Into Darkness is much like my response to the first Abrams’ Star Trek film.
I could complain about various ways it lacks things I liked about the original Star Trek. I could complain that it draws from the canon well too often rather than standing more on its own. I could complain about plot holes and other issues with the film when considered on its own.
But I enjoyed it so much that I don’t want to do any of those things.
I also have to say that really enjoy these characters—both for how they are like the originals and for how they are different.
