The unleashing of the third film of the rebooted series by Paramount Pictures, Star Trek Beyond, has made the Trekkies crazy as the original Star Trek series celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The film is creating a buzz all around the globe and, Justin Lin (of the First and Furious series) has made it a point that his first directed StarTrek film lives up to its title going above and beyond what the audience expected. Along with the writers, Doug Jung and Simon Pegg, Lin has successfully taken Star Trek Beyond to be the best blockbuster of summer 2016.
The film, like its predecessors, (being the 13th of the series) is not only an action-packed flick with beautiful visuals, wonderful soundtrack by Michael Giacchino, and an excellent chemistry between the known and beloved characters, but also shows the profundity which Justin Lin has handled with expertise.
The movie begins three years after Captain James Tiberius Kirk and his crew left for their five-year exploration of deep space, which we, the Trekkies call Intrepid Space Mission. I think the film goes deeper showing what it takes to be on space for such a long time when Captain Kirk is told, “There’s no relative direction in the vastness of space”. With this, the film begins an inward journey along with its cult mission, “to boldly go where no man has gone before”.
Star Trek Beyond is the best one in the series as many are of the opinion as it comes with action, adventure, adrenaline rush along with huge fun moments, courtesy: Simon Pegg. It’s also a story showing the unity and camaraderie in dire circumstances and, a profundity of showing unfailing faith in humanity. The movie pays tribute to late Leonard Nimoy and late Anton Yelchin who have both passed away since the last Star Trek film.
We see a new villain, Krall, played by Idris Elba. Captain Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise crash-land on Krall’s planet and, they must find a way to escape.
With rave reviews around the world, kudos from critics and endless encouragement from the fans worldwide, Star Trek Beyond boldly and steadily went to the top of the box office in its weekend debut. It’s quite obvious as even before the release, Star Trek Beyond was nominated for Best Teaser at the 17th Annual Golden Trailer Awards.
The new enhanced version of the series is being lapped up by the audience proving the fact that the magic and mystery of the Intrepid Space Mission continues.
