Who Has The Remote? recommends the sequel to J.J. Abrams’ 2009 effort to revive the characters from Star Trek’s original series. Following a Los Angeles Times review of Star Trek: Into Darkness, WhoHasTheRemote.com details reasons why the movie is a must watch for fans and newcomers alike.

WhoHasTheRemote.com issued its approval of Star Trek: Into Darkness. Directed by J.J. Abrams, the movie is a follow-up to the 2009 movie Star Trek. While reviews from sources like the Los Angeles Times are passable, Who Has The Remote? finds Into Darkness an entertaining, must-see sequel. Established fans and newcomers alike can see the film in theaters now or wait to watch on their dish network free iPad. Who Has The Remote? lists a few reasons for its recommendation of the film.

Perhaps one of the most important details of the movie is that the cast breathes new life into the original characters while remaining true to their personalities. Most notable are Chris Pine in the role of Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Simon Pegg as Scotty, and Karl Urban as Bones. The chemistry among these characters is perfectly reprised, with the animosity between Spock and Bones played to a tee. The stubborn friend/coworker relationship between Kirk and Spock is also well represented.

The film is family-friendly for the most part, appropriate for families with middle-grade children. Vaguely sexual situations and foul language are kept to a bare minimum. While the movie does consist of sci-fi violence, the scenes are less scary and more exhilarating. At its heart, Into Darkness focuses on doing the right thing, providing a good lesson for kids and parents to discuss later.

The special effects are outstanding, just as they were in the 2009 film. Director Abrams captures the excitement and wonder of the original series very well. The first glimpse of the main characters is particularly stimulating. In a strange yet beautiful landscape that includes bright red trees, Kirk and Bones attempt to run from a strange, archaic race of alien people. Soon after, Spock is being lowered into the middle of a volcano in a bizarre spacesuit. These scenes are as visually captivating as they are exciting.

WhoHasTheRemote.com recommends Star Trek: Into Darkness as a must-see movie for old fans and newcomers. The film provides visual, mental, and emotional stimulation for audiences and is appropriate for families with middle-grade children. For these reasons and more, Who Has The Remote? endorses Into Darkness as a great choice for movie night.
