J.J. Abrams has taken on an immense responsibility that few creative professionals would ever want to shoulder. After the success of his television show Lost the sharp geek transitioned into directing and producing Hollywood films. Now this television emperor is single handedly ushering in the rebirth of two iconic science fiction empires. With both Star Wars and Star Trek under his control has Abrams bitten off more than he can theoretically chew? His second Trek film, Star Trek into Darkness, came out last week and the reviews from critics and fans are mostly lukewarm. With both sides to pointing to serious flaws, is it a smart idea to have one director at the wheel of two billion dollar franchises? My short answer is no.
