Review: Star Trek Beyond

Posted by Ali Gray at 23:30 on 21 Jul 2016
Star Trek Beyond
The things you remember from Star Trek Into Darkness: the theatrical dramatic pause before the shitty Khan reveal; Benedict Cumberbatch doing that weird over-enunciation thing he thinks makes bad dialogue sound better; Kirk kicking the warp core like a broken printer; the bit where Bones basically cures death; Tribbles; the platform game level at the end where Spock channels Super Mario. The things you don't remember from Star Trek Into Darkness: the good stuff, I guess? I don't recall it being a terrible film, quite enjoyable in the moment in fact, but a post-viewing breakdown revealed the story to have as much structural integrity as a piss-soaked newspaper. Star Trek Beyond, however, rights everything that Star Trek Into Darkness put wrong. It may not be as polished or as ambitious as its predecessor, but it is far truer to the core themes of what Trek is all about; crucially, it's a film that looks to the future, not the past.

So you may have seen our official, in-depth Star Trek Into Darkness review posted a few days ago. But what’s that you say? Tl; dr? Right, so what would you prefer? A quick, short review cut down into bite-size chunks and, I don’t know, accompanied by funny moving pictures? (*sigh*) Make it so...

Star Trek Into Darkness
Right from the very first scene, which sees Kirk and Bones sprinting through bright red flora to escape from a primitive alien tribe, Star Trek Into Darkness proves to be a film of relentless adventure. It’s non-stop action through and through, and, once this opening chase sets the pace, the film seems to always be constantly accelerating. As such, the film spends all of its time going somewhere; and it goes quickly, it goes loudly and it goes spectacularly. The only problem is that it never seems to live up to the franchise’s original mission statement and go boldly.

They should have called this movie Star Tits Into Bra-rkness. Am I right or am I right? (Actual poster at IMP).

Empire have a bunch of new Star Trek Into Darkness pics, including this one which proves once and for all that even the most experienced Vulcans still find that hand gesture thing a bit of a bastard to do.

Spoiler alert! Well, it's not actually a spoiler, because we don't know the plot of Star Trek Into Darkness yet. But if it shows what we think it shows, then yeah, the movie's spoiled. Already.

Star Trek
Let's play a little game of word association. If I said 'majestic', 'enjoyable' and 'meaningful', you wouldn't think Star Trek, right? No. But if I said 'lazy', 'predictable' and 'dull'.... well, that's Star Trek down to a tee - at least, that's how it's been for the past decade and a half. Of late, Star Trek has been a poten...
