Star Trek Beyond – Film Review


No More Workhorse


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.
