The first leg of the USS Enterprise’s five year mission takes them into uncharted territory. There the Enterprise is nearly destroyed and strands Kirk and his crew on a remote planet with no means of communication. Kirk must then work with the elements to reunite his crew and get back to Earth. Written by halo1k
9/10. The crew of the USS Enterprise are back again, half way through their five mission to explore strange new worlds they find themselves on the edge of the known explored Galaxy. Director Justin Lin doesn’t disappoint going from Fast and the Furious on the ground to Fast and Furious in space. The team instantly fall back in to the groove with comradery and witty banter a plenty. Chris Pine, Zachery Quinto and Karl Urban were all awesome. I really enjoyed the part played by Sofia Boutella, keep an eye out for her character Jaylah, very cool. I also loved the score hitting some real highlights at the right times, Michael Giacchino is a legend. I also noticed lots of Easter eggs to keep all the Trekkie fans happy, as it did me. Do not miss this if you enjoy the new Star Trek reboots. #startrekbeyond Startrekbeyond Movie 2016.
How is it possible to spend so much cash making a movie so utterly meaningless and bad? 185 million USD?
This is 2 hours of your life that you will never get back.
So, where to start? First off the story is so thin and seems like a child wrote it. It has no depth and right from the beginning you feel basically nothing for the bad guys or the good guys, and there are so many holes in the story.
There happens to be a huge base far out in space where the Enterprise is going to restock? Isen’t the Enterprise supposed to be out in deep space exploring?
Next to this large space base there is a nebula and apparently a planet with perfect conditions for human survival. It seems to be right next to the large space base, which would seem very very unlikely considering the vastness of space. And the crew happen to land on the same small area of this huge planet so they can all meet up.
Then they meet a character that seems to be a bad mix of Rey from Star Wars and Neytiri from Avatar who happen to have found an old federation ship (that of course they can get to work after 150 years on a deserted planet), very unoriginal.
So the reason for the bad guy Krall to lure the Enterprise to his planet and destroy it seems to be a device that Kirk has that will help Krall kill people. But in the end of the movie it is very clear that using his ships alone he could have easily destroyed the base – so what was the purpose of this relic device in the first place?
There is quite bad CGI during the whole movie. In every action packed scene especially the fighting the camera moves around so much it is hard to grasp what is happening. But even with this shaky camera trick it’s impossible to miss how utterly bad these scenes are. The fighting scene between Manas and our Rey character is one of the worst Iv seen in a long time.
The only thing decent with this movie are some of the actors and their dialog. Everything else, from story to script to CGI is just garbage.
Im sorry I like Star Trek I really do, but this movie is not worth seeing in the cinema.
