|Crash landing time|
The first twenty minutes was good, but then problems began to develop. I knew what was going to happen 5 or 6 minutes before it happened. This is not a good thing. About 70 minutes into the film the entire movie goes down the shit hole. Abrams brings in a wizened old Spock to tell his younger version how to beat Khan. I sat in my seat completely dumbfounded. It was almost as if JJ Abrams thought he could bend over and fart at the audience. His only problem? He popped a wet one, and it stinks. The lesson to be learned? Know your audience and give them what they want. There's an old adage in Hollywood: keep 'em coming back. That's not really happening with Into Darkness, and it's showing up in the box office receipts. What should have been a really good sequel seems to have been nothing more then ego at work.
