A bit soulless,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Trek Into Darkness (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + Digital Copy) [Region Free]  (Blu-ray)
I have mixed feelings about J.J. Abrams' Star Trek films - they tick all the right boxes for a summer blockbuster, but as part of the Star Trek franchise they feel odd, resembling more Star Wars than Star Trek. I found it a little soulless - it has fantastic effects but a weak storyline.
The characters also don't feel right to me; I was never a fan of the original Star Trek, but I'm pretty sure those writers would have put Kirk and Uhura together if they could, not Spock and Uhura. I actually bought the Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray combo as it has an image of the Enterprise on it, rather than the characters.
To be honest, one of the reasons I actually bought this was that ST:DS9's Section 31 was in it; DS9 never got much focus in the ST:TNG movies (just the appearance of the Defiant in First Contact, the mention of the Dominion in ST: Insurrection and a mention of the Dominion War in ST: Nemesis) so its nice to see it getting some love here; to me it was the best of the spinoffs.
