Star trek into darkness

This movie Is SO good. It is the best out of all the new three Star Trek movies. In the other two, the action is just a bunch of space ships shooting each other. The story is kind of confusing, but from what I understood, it has a good reason for the bad guy to be evil. The effects are pretty good. It is a tiny bit over dramatic and there is some sexy stuff, and intense action, but in conclusion, I think this movie is super Great.
