OVERRATED: 'Star Trek: Into Darkness' (2013)

Less a movie and more of an expensive wink toward a franchise's roots punctuated by a judicious use of explosions, the latest installment of J.J. Abrams' reboot of the venerable sci-fi series doesn't deliver the bubbly summer thrills of the first time around. Strangely devoid of tension or surprises despite a decent villainous turn by Benedict Cumberbatch, the best thing about this movie is it will be forgotten in three months.
