Star Trek Beyond

The 13th Star Trek film, the third in the newly rebooted series. JJ Abrams, director of Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), steps aside for Fast & Furious stalwart Justin Lin.

Halfway through their five-year mission to boldy go where no-one has gone before, the crew of the USS Enterprise is forced to abandon ship and battle for their survival on an unknown planet. Hidden inside a nebula, this is where Krall (Idris Elba) has been planning an audacious attack on the Federation. Simon Pegg wrote the screenplay alongside Doug Jung after the initial effort by Roberto Orci (at one point set to direct) was rejected for being "a little bit too Star Trek-y", according to Pegg.

It’s a sturdily built movie that gets the job done, and it’s got a likable retro vibe.

Powered by a spirited sense of adventure and a nice teamwork dynamic, it’s fun, but not essential, summer viewing.

This is all fun all the time, a dizzying carnival of wisecracks, fisticuffs, explosions, chases and truly eye-popping effects.

It is the inter-relationship of the Enterprise’s crew which is the real source of drama. An entertaining adventure.

Star Trek Beyond is exactly what a Star Trek movie only ever really needs to be – a great episode. No more, no less.

A return to fun, and a return to form for the new version of the old Trek.

I was ready for another adventure of the universal kind and the wait was worth it. What a great film i almost felt like i was trekking across the universe with the captain and crew and sharing in their joys and troubles. The actors protraying the main characters do not disappoint and do their predecessors proud. In quiet solitude the audience is with...

Boldly putting the fun back into the franchise, this 13th STAR TREK film, the third in the rebooted and CGI-suited Trekiverse, is pretty entertaining. Littered with laughs, action and cool CG, what it lacks in character development, story, subtlety, sci-fi chops or intellect it tries, a little too desperately (for me at least), to make up for in hip, flip,...

Star Trek - Beyond Another great series in the new reboot franchise. I thoroughly enjoy Jj Abrams last two, & his producing this one is proving just as good. Like a miss-mash of ‘Enemy Mine’ ‘Enders Game’ ‘Bermuda Triangle’ and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ it really has little for everyone, just like the Star Trek’s of old. This film had me on the edge of my...

It's a shame JJ Abrams let go of the creative helm on this one as this new franchise had made such a great start. Simon Pegg wrote it and managed to get in some vintage themes but on the whole the emphasis was less on storyline and more on visual effects with an overly loud soundtrack. Good for viewers who just want an onslaught of action and noise but...

One of the worst things I've seen this year. Boring action scenes, no character development. Really uninspiring.
