I have seen Into the darkness. It was rather long, more than two hours. I almost fell asleep in a period in the middle of the film. It was more an action than a Star trek really. I think the essence of star trek was somewhat lost in all the action and sci-fi-effects.
I am a Trekkie, I have been following star trek since the next generation in the late 80′s. So of course I have expectations. I like star trek since it is so less bloody but still has drama and action in another, more intellectual sence.
Well. I wish that we could have known more about the story behind Kahn, the bad guy so to speak. We are not given enough story room behind him and his crew and why they had their fate. I wish I did, since this is the problem with the movie and this is what also makes it lose some Star trek quality. In Star trek I usually get a story behind things and what I think is “normal” is placed under investigation. I think this is what is missing. If they just had added that and removed parts of the action I would have given the movie more stars than I will.
There was some mistaken identity issues and it feels really strange that it is so easy to lure yourself onboard a ship with another identity, like the science officer does. It is not believable. And even less flying away with a non identified science officer. I would like to think that in todays matrix society it wouldn’t be possible so far away in the future. Those small things make me annoyed as a Trekkie fan.
The space ship, design and so on is beautiful. The 3D effect wasn’t so much 3D, so it could have been left out totally. The actors and actresses are very much “star trek” quality and play the part as they should.
There are some “bi-stories” on the side of the real story and I would want to know more about those. This movie had a change to show us more around the Kahn blood and so on, but yet it doesn’t. What happens to the once that receive the blood? I would want to know. However it seems like the producers have been more interested in giving action scenes in space, not that they aren’t beautifully made in the computer, but…. I like movies to have stories and not leave the audience in the darkness….
But as this movie is, I only give it three stars out of five.
A five-year old girl was raped in India, according to Expressen.se. I am wondering why someone even wants to rape a five-year old. They are children and so non sexual. I think there is something wrong with a country that rapes women and small children and the police must be forced before they even accept a report. There is definitely something wrong with a police that doesn’t want to accept rape reports and investigate them. A rape is a crime, even in India. It must be reported and investigated. A rape with murder is a murder and a rape and both are crimes. Serious crimes. Women must be able to live in a society without having to be scared of being raped.
A country must protect its women and treat them with respect. Without women there wouldn’t be any humans. Just saying. Respect women. India needs to start respecting women. A man who does not respect a woman as equal is no man at all.
Today the telly showed “The book of Eli” with a hotty girl and good looking Denzel Washington. I am sorry I do not remember her name, but she is from some series. Well it was about our planet and when destruction had happened and burned everything. And those that had stayed underground could come up after a year. There was of course criminals and such in such a world. No different from this. The world was scared, desert and not blooming. It was desert landscapes and harsh environments through out the film. And the man, played by Denzel, had been given a task by God. To transport a special book, the last of its kind, to a safe place. The Holy Bible. So this was a story about how the Bible survives destruction, but only in one copy. His task is filled with obstacles.
So I give that film 2 of 5 stars. It was good enough for TV, but not for the movies. It was not to realistic and that is why the grade was lower. I am sick and tired of the types of characters Hollywood wants “ruff” people to be. So this brings down the grade. See it if you just want to spend some time, otherwise there are better movies.
I must start by saying: Thank you for making such a good movie. It is all about a women caught up in a faith that she really couldn’t help. One could think she was naive to get into this mess, but she was anything but naive. This is indeed a story about a women, a girl, who is all but a victim according to some American norms of a stupid blonde in some parody movies like Scream or something like that. This is a story about a strong, smart, intelligent women, not just mentally strong, but also intelligent. She is fast and rapid and really understands her environment fully. The story is complete and well done, as many French movies are. It is a story about someone framing you for something you haven’t done.
So I give this movie a strong four out of five big stars. I seldom give five stars, only a few movies over the years have gotten five from me. Solens rike (Empire of the sun) by Steven Spielberg is such a movie that I give five to, just so you understand what I think is a good movie.
If you feel like seeing a thriller with action, realistic portraits of people and women, then this is the movie for you. Lay all the blonde comments back into the closet and enjoy a smart, intelligent women that is woven into a strange reality. The main characters are played by Eric Cantona and Karine Vanesse. Katrine Vanesse makes a good performance of this strong and intelligent women.
A girl, working as a volonteer at a orphanage, got pains after dining out at a Indian restaurant. They went home to the place where they stayed and the Swedish girl died. It´s suspected that she was poisioned, according to Aftonbladet.se. The authoroties are now saying it could take up to five years to investigate and make an autopsy, according to the article. I am saying, the autopsy can me made in Sweden and much faster. Please release the body, it´s disrespectful to keep a Swedish body hostage in a foreign country far away from the family. It´s inhumane. It´s disrespect to all of the Swedish population. If I die abroud I want my body returned home as fast as possible. I have been in India. Imagine if I would have died there… and not been allowed to go home? What a terrible thing, if I would have known that I would never have gone to India.
I think Indian authooroties should be ashamed. People even got home earlier after the tsunami. I think it´s terrible. Release the body to the Swedish mother. She needs closure. Please.
