Blow Me Up, Scotty!

A.O. Scott of NYT with review of new Star Trek, citing "disappointment" and "betrayal" and the militarism of space at the expense of "humanism."
After increasingly noisy and bloated starship battles, “Into Darkness” reaches a climax with the smashing of a North American city followed by a long fistfight on a flying metal platform. It’s uninspired hackwork, and the frequent appearance of blue lens flares does not make this movie any more of a personal statement. Mr. Abrams will never be Michael Bay, who can make kinetic poetry out of huge pieces of machinery smashing together. Why should he want to be?
