Before we get started, I would like to thank everyone, year old readers and new readers, for reading and supporting my review blog! Today, 7/27/2016, is my one year birthday of when I posted my first review! It has been a fun time so far and I do not have any intention on slowing down but I sincerely want to thank you all for reading. Here’s to another year!
Live long and prosper Star Trek fans. Here we have the third installment of this run of Star Trek films in ‘Star Trek Beyond’. It has been three years since ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ and now we can see if the third film can continue rolling full speed ahead with the success the first and second films left off with.
‘Star Trek Beyond’ goes out into deep space once again when they come in contact with a mysterious stranger who is distressed due to losing her crew in said deep space after they wrecked. With no fleet better at trekking into unknown space, Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) takes his crew and the USS Enterprise into the unknown territory. Once there, they encounter a new adversary more sinister and ruthless than ever before. Kirk and his crew are faced with their toughest challenge yet and is lead to the edge of their existence.
This new Star Trek series has been debated by many as being good or bad. With the majority leaning toward the favorable side of the spectrum, I must say that I am on that side with them. Star Trek continues to improve with each installment. While it has not been something absolutely mind blowing, it is entertaining nonetheless. ‘Star Trek Beyond’ did a great job at involving Kirk’s large crew in each of their respective screen times. Sofia Boutella did a fantastic job as Jaylah. Each time she was on screen, I was highly entertained by her character. I was a big fan of all the action that was in the film as well as the comedic moments that are inputted in many various scenes all throughout the film. One thing I did laugh to myself about was the large amount of dark environments that occurred during the film and I joked to myself thinking that this one should have been titled ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ versus the second installment being titled ‘Star Trek Beyond’, but that is just me. Overall, a greatly entertaining film and a great installment to the series. I do not foresee this series dying out anytime soon as long as it keeps up this trend.
