My favourite film of this new Trek trilogy

3 years into it's 5 year mission, The USS Enterprise makes a stop at Starfleet's newest, most advanced starbase, Starbase Yorktown, when it recieves a distress call. Following the location of the call to Altamid, a class M planet on the edge of the Nebula, uncharted space, The Enterprise is destroyed by a swarm of drones led by a ruthless alien with a vendetta named Krall. With their ship destroyed and scattered all over Altamid, the crew of The Enterprise must get back together and team up with alien warrior Jaylah if they are to escape. Now, the first thing I want to say is that this is the most flat out fun film of this new trilogy, which also makes it my favourite, with the 2009 film coming in close second because of nostalgia and a great ensemble cast. The action scenes are fun and v...

"Star Trek Beyond" by Yojimbo

The Enterprise is ambushed by a creature with a pathological hatred of The Federation and all it stands for, leaving Kirk and the crew stranded on an alien planet. My initial reservations about the Star Trek reboot mainly centred around its broad humour and reliance on superficial flash; something I felt was rectified by the darker themes and harder edge of the first sequel, Into Darkness. Unfortunately Star Trek Beyond feels very much like a step backwards in this regard. The opening sequence which played very much for laughs could easily be mistaken for an outtake from Galaxy Quest - which was in fact, rather funnier - and the breathless, comic strip action never pauses to give any of the central characters to breathe, never mind interact or share any meaningful dialogue. Idris Elba is ...

It was painful to see the Enterprise going down

"Cut the throat."

Although I've seen a considerable number of episodes of the television series Star Trek at a young age, I've never felt like a real Trekkie. It fascinated me, but not to such an extent that I'd greet everyone in my daily life using a Vulcan salute. When the next generation Star Trek episodes started (with the charismatic Captain Picard), I was even less interested and existence of this series faded for me completely. Three years ago I saw "Star Trek Into Darkness". And to my surprise this was already the 12th motion picture with the Enterprise still boldly going where no man has gone before. It really didn't blow me away. It wasn't so adventurous as in the television version where they repeatedly discovered new civilizations. Probably it has someth...

Latest 'Star' Shines Bright!

'Star Trek Beyond' is the much needed course change for this rebooted series. I did enjoy the previous two installments as rock solid sci-fi action/adventure films. However, they were lacking in some of the areas that the long running 'Star Trek' series is known for. And, with 'Into Darkness', unnecessary retreading of past 'Trek' films was abound. I'm very happy to report that this third (or 13th) installment returns to the roots of what gave the brand it's charm in first place. We join up with the Enterprise crew while on the latter part of a multi-year mission, doing what they do best: exploring. The montage reintroductions to the characters bring us up to date in minutes on the status of the crew and their interpersonal relationships. From this point on, the whole film is a str...

The Frontier strikes back!

Justin Lin takes the reins of the newer Star Trek movies from J.J. Abrams' hands since the latter has moved on to a different sci-fi film franchise. Wonder which it is? Anyway enough of me being a smartass, Star Trek Beyond is a great sequel and honestly if this was the first movie instead of the third in the new film series, no one would notice. It's a perfect example of a stand-alone sequel that works as a rock-solid science fiction blockbuster.
The difference between Abrams and Lin as far as their directorial style goes is noticeable from the first scene onward but it speaks volumes of Lin's talent that it fits right in with the first two Abrams movies. Justin Lin makes the Star Trek universe bright, colorful and splashy as though someone finally made a 200 million dollar extended ep...

Star Trek Beyond - Movie Review

Star Trek Beyond may not be the best space voyage for many, but it's a great summer film if you're only looking for a fun silly time at the movies.

The energy, the character's and the bold scope are the things that makes Beyond watchable. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and the rest of the cast are all fantastic in the roles. And this actually feels like an actual Star Trek movie and not a full on remake like "Into Darkness" was. All thanks to Justin Lin.

If only the editing and the villain was improved then this would have gotten a stronger rating. I didn't think the villain was terrible or anything like that, but it was a waste of Idris Elba. I mean, yeah his motivations are relieved at the climax of what he's trying to do and it kinda makes sense. The villain himself wasn'...

Boldly Going Beyond the Original Scope

I was skeptical for a long time about this Star Trek entry simply because this one felt more rushed than the previous entries. Yet they managed to pull things together and craft an original story and while the focus this time may be more on action than the characters at times, this is classic Trek and certainly the most fun I've had with this rebooted series.

The film opens with Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) trying to negotiate a peace between two races - and failing, getting attacked by a swarm of pint-sized brawlers. He laments that the five-year mission the Enterprise is currently on (about halfway through at this point) is taking its toll. So much so that when the crew lands at the Federation's newest port of call, the space station Yorktown, Kirk is ready to put in his name in the hat...

Aufguss

Wahrhaftig: Das Konzept Star Trek reiste spätestens ab der Neuauflage 2009 weit hinter die Grenzen des Science Fiction, hinein in das Gebiet der Seifen Oper im Weltall. Längst passe, die Gene Roddenberry Zeiten, in denen sich die Folgen mit wissenschaftlichen Fragen und den Idealen der Philosophie beschäftigten. Ersetzt wurden sie durch Folgen, die bunt und laut und voller Action daherkamen. Wie so viele Franchises versucht sich auch Star Trek in der Wiederholung des Bewährten, anstatt neue Ufer zu suchen. 2009 bewegte sich Star Trek exakt dorthin, wo es bereits einmal war. Mittels Zeitreise wurde einfach nur die Belegschaft verjüngt. Dieselben Charaktere, nur einige Jahre zuvor. Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Scotty und der Rest durften so ihr späteres Selbst lenken. Leonard Nimoy konnte so ...
