Star Trek Beyond Review: Exciting Installment in the Star Trek Franchise
Star Trek Beyond centers on the crew of the Enterprise whom are continuing their five year journey through space. Contemplating his future in starfleet, Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) leads his fellow crew into an unknown nebula after receiving a distress call from another ship. However the Enterprise is lured into a trap which leads to the destruction of the famed starship. Stranded on an unknown planet, Kirk and the crew must find a way home; but that seems easier said than done as the villains Krall (Idris Elba) is determined to hunt them for an artifact that can help the alien to purge the galaxy.
While it may not look like it, Star Trek Beyond turned out to be another solid addition to the sci-fi series. Granted the film is not as strong as its predecessors due to underwhelming factors such as story, but that did not make this installment from be a total lost. Star Trek Beyond turned out to be an adventure filled with simplicity and entertainment; making this film a solid blockbuster for both the franchise and the summer of 2016.
