  • Star Trek Into Darkness 2013

    ★★★★ Rewatched 03 Mar, 2015 1

    Faster, funnier, flashier and full on. Star Trek into Darkness does what every sequel needs to do, up the ante! It's a pretty good sequel. Abrams fills our eyes and ears with a barrage of Summer Blockbuster effects and set peices.

    You've seen it a hundred times...but it never loses its charm. This classic Arnie Sci-Fi Action-er sees a crack team of commandos on a rescue mission in the Central American jungle. The mission goes from bad to worse as they soon realise a dangerous alien predator is hunting them down. This is one of my favourite Arnie films. It's tense, fast paced and full to the brim with enough action and bullets to take down a small country. It has…
