Star Trek Beyond– Film Review by David Turpin
Directed by Justin Lin
Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba
This third instalment of the new, re-cast Star Trek franchise sees director J. J. Abrams replaced with Fast and Furious series alumnus Justin Lin, and the solemnity of 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness traded in for a zippy, retro feel. While Lin’s cluttered action sequences suffer from a dire lack of spatial clarity, the changes are otherwise fairly welcome – although it’s not quite up to the standard of the 2009 “original”, it’s light-years more fun than its glum and violent immediate precursor.
