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.

Early on in Star Trek Beyond, we hear Kirk, via his Captain's Log, amusingly describe things on the Enterprise as having become "episodic" after several years in space. It's an articulation of the film's stated intention to evoke the spirit of the original series, a goal the film achieves without devolving into a nostalgia run.

Okay.

A mediocre plot with plenty of action, twists, adventure and humour.

Bad acting. Terrible accents. Some good action though.

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.
