It's appropriate that director J.J. Abrams' exciting and smart sci-fi adventure is the second entry in the rebooted "Star Trek" movie franchise, since it has a number of links to "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan."
A dangerous renegade (Benedict Cumberbatch) declares his own personal war on Starfleet, prompting Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the intergalactic gang to try to stop him. Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban and Simon Pegg also are back on board, with Peter Weller and Alice Eve as other cast newcomers. *** (PG-13: V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
