'Star Trek': The final frontier? Not a chance

(Continued)

The film isn’t perfect. The score works overtime to let us know that Harrison is eeeeevil. New Enterprise science officer Dr. Carol Marcus (Alice Eve) strips down to her underwear in one brazenly gratuitous scene simply because she looks really good that way. Some might quibble about including a Tribble. I was captivated every moment. While building in myriad references to earlier “Star Trek” adventures, “Into Darkness” feels like a summation of all the previous chapters.

Boldly go.
