That's how you get mediocre films. Star Trek Into Darkness was a clear in your face attempt to cash in on the Dark Knight vibe
Dark Knight was made BEFORE Trek '09, Jarod.

just as Star Trek Begins was an attempt to cash in on the Star Wars prequels and Batman Begins.
The prequels started in '99, Jarod.

They forget that the original films they were "inspired by" didn't do that. The Dark Knight is a genuine film through and through
Well I find it entertaining and gripping but also pretentious, overrated, convoluted and full of plot holes.

I thought the now-you're-captain-now-you're-XO-whoops-now-you're-captain-again was an...unnecessary detour and distraction in this one.
True. There's enough material in that movie for a miniseries.
And that's my opinion.
