Star Trek into Darkness - Cumberbatch is - CAUTION MAJOR SPOILER

DO NOT READ IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT SPOLIERS BUT THIS POST REVEALS WHO CUMBERBATCH IS PLAYING IN STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS.


Into Darkness has now opened in Australia and advance news is mixed - there are those who loved it but also those that feel Star Trek's been turned into a dumb action movie. We can also reveal that Benedict Cumerbatch is actually playing Khan even if he does go through much of the movie using the name John Harrison. And that this movie is a thinly disguised re-make of The Wrath of Khan.

Expect a full Archive review in the fullness of time.

The previous Star Trek movie is a tough one to beat. It was close to perfection (lens flares and all). So this movie had a tough up-hill battle ahead of it. I am happy to report that the writing, direction, cinematography and acting were all at least as good as the last one. Cumberbatch is brilliant. I won't divulge any spoilers, but I will say that the throw back to the earlier movies is very very clever and well executed. It is hard to find fault with this movie, particularly as it had very big shoes to fill. But it does so brilliant and effortlessly. The added depth we see in the characters of Kirk and Spock is icing on an already delicious cake! Well done JJ, producers, actors, writers and musicians. This is one of the very few movies I have ever given full marks
