Star Trek Into Darkness
But for one detail, I loved Star Trek Into Darkness. It was a new twist on an old story - familiar characters, role reversals, plot twists. I'm still getting used to the alternate reality, but it worked well. The excellent and already familiar crew of the Enterprise is back, and it was a treat to see Peter Weller in the film. The one thing I didn't like was Benedict Cumberbatch's role. I can't say why because it would give a major surprise away. Suffice to say, he was excellent, but ultimately wrong for the character. I wish they had just created a new one for him to play and it would have been perfect. As it is, there are two actors who would have much better, each for a different reason. DO NOT look at the Internet Movie Database links if you don't want spoilers.
