Star Trek Into Darkness 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Review

Star Trek Into Darkness suffers from essentially telling a variation of the same story the first film told and then reinacts moments that made sense in the original cast member films, but in this alternate timeline feels like lazy writing that just relies too much on moments of reference from things in Star Trek lore just for the sake of it and not because it is important to the story. The film then delivers  out and out contrivances that quite literally include a cure for death. You can't make stuff like this up. Star Trek Into Darkness is not a horrible film. It has some fun moments, but if you think about what is going on too much you will owe your brain an apology.

On 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray with HDR 2160p resolution, this disc doesn't disappoint. The presentation has sharp color contrasts and deep tones that impress. The new Dolby Atmos Soundtrack is enveloping and discrete too. I think upon comparison with the Blu-ray 3D DIsc set released in 2013, Star Trek Into Darkness actually offer more high definition bonus features in the included Blu-ray Discs and like the 4K BD release of Star Trek, a limited time redeemable coupon for either an iTunes digital copy or UltraViolet digital copy is included within the black UHD BD case.

Star Trek Into Darkness is available now retailers on and offline courtesy of Paramount Home Entertainment.
