13. 'Star Trek Into Darkness' (2013)
J.J. Abrams' last “Trek” is his worst film. His much-loved “Mystery Box” approach, which only really works as a marketing tool, fails him on a story level when we learn who the villain really is (as if we didn't know already).
It's a movie where the head of Starfleet is totally fine violating Federation principles and risking war with the Klingons to cover up his secret plans with an all-out military strike (which, as cover-ups go, not very discrete), but, if you’re Jim Kirk and you're caught lying, then he must uphold the very rules he's taking 7 photon torpedoes to. If you like movies where heroes lie to save their own ass and put their crews in a wringer, or stories that lurch from one set piece to another with inconsistent characterizations and little emotional resonance, or that remix bits from the best “Trek” movie ever without appreciating why it is the best, then “STID” is for you.
