When the Enterprise faces a force of terror from within their organization, Captain Kirk leads his crew to Kronos to capture the man responsible – John Harrison.
That’s just a really brief summary but I just want to shout out: BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH! I didn’t catch the prequel to this so the main reason I’m watching this sequel is BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH. His role here is kept under wraps but we do know he antagonizes Kirk and his crew so this villainous role must be juicy! He even does some hand-to-hand combat here which really enhances the biceps of BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH. Throughout the movie, you will question his motives and actions but it is all worth it.
The script is well-written and the action scenes pack a punch. Even the bromance scenes between Kirk and Spock are everywhere. Maybe I read too much in between the lines. Spock’s Vulcan sensibilities are at its height because everyone including Kirk and Uhura have had enough of his “honesty”.
