(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) More than half century after the birth of original "Star Trek" series, director J.J. Abrams successfully rebooted the "Star Trek" franchise with his 2009 film "Star Trek," the first film of a planned trilogy.(Star Trek Into Darkness Download) His second installment "Star Trek Into Darkness" (USA 2013 | 133 min.) adds more fuel to the Trek fever, in 3D. The film's spectacular visual and engaging characters offers exciting entertainment for Trek fans as well as Trek novices.

Set in the 23rd Century, while the beautiful starship USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) continues to fly among planets "to explore strange new worlds and to seek out new life and new civilizations," war is far from over.(Download Star Trek Into Darkness Movie) After a bomb attack in London, USS Enterprise becomes a war machine and is deployed to pursue the one who is believed to be responsible—John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch).

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) Led by its Capitan Kirk (Chris Pine), the USS Enterprise flies out of earth with a crew on board including a few familiar Trek characters such as Spock (Zachary Quinto), Bones (Karl Urban), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Sulu (John Cho), Scotty (Simon Pegg), and Chekov (Anton Yelchin).

That's how much I am willing to say about the plot, even the plot is not usually the most important aspect for a film like this.(Watch Star Trek Into Darkness Online) But in comparison to other action sci-fi movies, the film's story is reasonably rendered.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) For Trek fans, it must be an exhilarating joy to reunite with these characters and to join their thrilling journey. However, even for non-Trek fans, the film's characters are strikingly engaging and they are not just props for the film to deliver earth-shaking special effects.

Benedict Cumberbatch's brilliant performance creates a chilling and mesmerizing villain. But Zachary Quinto stands out for playing the lovable, funny, even sensitive half-human Spock, who triggers most laughter in the film.(Star Trek Into Darkness Download) The film cleverly lets Spock speak his logical mind about the ethical principle behind their war mission, which clearly references to the current debate about the U.S. drone attacks.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) Despite the spectacular computer generated visual effects in the film, the imagination about the 23rd Century seems to be limited to our current hand-held device reality. For example, Scotty still uses a flip phone which remarkably resembles a Motorola phone (even the logo); Kirk zooms-in with his two fingers on an iPad-alike device during a meeting;(Download Star Trek Into Darkness Movie) soldiers still need a rope to come down from a flying ship; and a battle must be ultimately settled by a good-old-fashioned fist fight.

On the bright side, it's comforting to see that in the 23rd Century, the Golden Gate Bridge still stand beautifully tall with the new skyline in San Francisco, and the cable cars are still moving, slowly.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) J.J. Abrams has done it once again; he's made an incredibly entertaining "Star Trek" movie. "Star Trek Into Darkness" proves to be just as much fun as the reboot he helmed in 2009, and I found myself with a big grin on my face as the end credits came up on the silver screen. In a summer season that has gotten off to a somewhat tepid start, Abrams manages to thrill us with a combination of spectacular action pieces and characters we come to care deeply about.(Watch Star Trek Into Darkness Online) He also takes this movie to where no "Star Trek" movie has ever gone before: a place where roman numerals and colons are not needed in the title.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) Only a year has passed since the events of the last movie, and this one starts off with the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise accidentally catching the attention of a primitive civilization that is not yet ready to discover the existence of things like starships.(Star Trek Into Darkness Download) This leads the crew (and James T. Kirk in particular) to violate the Prime Directive which dictates that there will no interference in the development of an alien civilization, something which cannot be helped when it comes to them saving one of their fellow crew members from certain death.(Download Star Trek Into Darkness Movie) Back on Earth, none of this sits well with Admiral Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood) who berates Kirk (Chris Pine) for acting as if the rules don't apply to him.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) Things change quickly however when a vicious domestic terrorist named John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) lays waste to certain parts of planet Earth, and Kirk becomes consumed with vengeance and is determined to bring him down at any cost. But in their pursuit of Harrison,(Star Trek Into Darkness Download) the crew of the Enterprise find themselves in conflict as to what course of action is the best to pursue. While Kirk feels justified in killing Harrison, this action could lead to an all-out war that the Federation of Planets cannot afford.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) Now some might complain that ever since Abrams became part of the Star Trek franchise that the movies have become more about action than ideas, but that's pretty much been the case since "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan." What Abrams gets right though is his attention to the characters,(Star Trek Into Darkness Download) and in the end this franchise is really more about the characters than it is special effects. While we love the action and all those starships firing their torpedoes at one another, it's the characters and what they go through which keeps us endlessly riveted.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) I love the complicated relationships these people have with one another. Admiral Pike continues to be the father figure that Kirk needs in his life, and Greenwood is perfect in the role as he dishes out some hard love to strong but arrogant Captain of the Enterprise.(Download Star Trek Into Darkness Movie) You never really catch Greenwood acting in the role, and his moments opposite Pine are filled with a lot of genuine emotion that never feels faked.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) But the key relationship in this "Star Trek" movie is the one between Kirk and Spock which remains as complicated as ever. While Kirk is willing to fudge the facts in order to justify his course of action, Spock has no choice to be 100% honest about everything because he's a Vulcan, and Vulcans don't lie (but they do exaggerate).(Watch Star Trek Into Darkness Online) You wonder how these two can stand to be on a starship together for even a brief period of time, but the fact is that these two need one another in order to survive from one galaxy to the next. This becomes all the more apparent as "Star Trek Into Darkness" reaches its relentless conclusion.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) Pine was an inspired choice to play Kirk, and he gives yet another excellent performance here as the iconic character. It's fun to watch him take Kirk from being a cocky individual to one who ends up making some selfless decisions in order to save the only family he has left: his crew.(Star Trek Into Darkness Download) Quinto remains as riveting as ever as Spock as we watch his half-human and half-Vulcan sides battling with one another for supremacy. Spock has always been a very complex character, and there are many reasons why he was the only one to survive the pilot episode of the original "Star Trek" television series.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) Zoe Saldana really gets to kick ass as Uhura in this adventure, and there's something thrilling about her not just being relegated to her communications station on the bridge. Simon Pegg remains a delight as Chief Engineer Scotty who finds out more about starships than he's supposed to in this one.(Download Star Trek Into Darkness Movie) John Cho really does get his moment in the sun as Sulu when he is required to take the Captain's chair and makes it clear that he is not to be messed with (George Takei would be proud). And then there's Karl Urban who remain as pitch perfect as ever as Dr. McCoy, and he delivers some of the character's most iconic lines with a freshness that reminds us how much we loved this character in the first place.

As for Anton Yelchin, his character of Pavel Chekov is kind of underused in this "Star Trek" movie. Yelchin does give a good performance, but Chekov is relegated to engineering a little too much this time around, and he comes off looking like he's not a necessary part of the Enterprise crew.

There are also some new additions to "Star Trek" family in this sequel that prove to be very welcome ones. Peter Weller, the original "Robocop," co-stars as Starfleet Admiral Marcus, and he brings to his role the same relentless hard ass intensity that he brought to the fifth season of "24." Alice Eve portrays the very alluring Science Officer Carol Wallace who knows more about weapons than anyone is comfortable with, and she also hides secrets which may jeopardize her relationship with the rest of the crew.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) But the one actor everyone will be paying the most attention to in "Star Trek Into Darkness" is Benedict Cumberbatch. Long before this sequel was released, it was believed that he would give us one of the most unforgettable villains of the summer 2013 movie season, and he never disappoints us in the slightest. John Harrison is not your typical one-dimensional bad guy, and that makes Cumberbatch's portrayal of him all the more mesmerizing to watch.(Watch Star Trek Into Darkness Online) He also gives the role a strong depth that you don't expect it to have as we discover his true nature and why he is wreaking all this havoc.

To say anything more would risk spoiling the movie for you, and I am not about to do that. J.J. Abrams makes a very welcome return to the director's chair for this "Star Trek" adventure, and his success here bodes well for that "Star Wars" movie we are waiting for him to make (and hopefully not screw up).While some directors get so caught up in visuals, battles and explosions, Abrams is one of the few who gives an equal amount of attention to the actors and the characters they play. That makes his films all the more thrilling and emotionally involving to witness.

(Download Star Trek Into Darkness) It's hard to say where "Star Trek Into Darkness" ranks among the other movies in this franchise that continues to live long and prosper, but it's safe to say that it won't be sharing company with "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier" anytime soon. This film entertained me from beginning to end and it never sacrificed character for the sake of action.(Star Trek Into Darkness Download) It has me looking forward to the next film which should have the Enterprise crew finally starting their 5 year mission to explore strange new worlds. Even if Abrams won't be in the director's chair, it's still bound to be an endlessly entertaining movie.
