When the Star Trek franchise got rebooted, writer-director J.J. Abrams opted for new takes on the series' original characters. This continues -- with mixed results -- in Star Trek Into Darkness, the latest (and most confusingly titled) movie in the series.
Star Trek Into Darkness is enjoyable enough, but it's also a little too much of what we've seen before (and not just from borrowing heavily from an episode of the original series).
Overall grade: C+
