for me, this film felt the most like the original series out of the rest in the AOS series! having the crew stranded on an unknown world, separated, and trying to find their way back to each other - nothing feels more 'star trek' to me!
A perfect blend of action, comedy, adventure and what makes Star Trek, Star Trek.
As a trekkie I was not disapointed, it had me laughing, touched and captivated just like I was as a kid watching Star Trek.
This is by far the best movie in the Trilogy. It sticks to star trek ethos and manages to be entertaining at the same time
To be honest I'm glad that the Star Trek franchise is back to what I think Gene Roddenberry would have wanted. More exploration and new planets, less Earth and cluttered sets.
Don't get me wrong...I really liked the first two instalments of the reboot, but Star Trek Beyond seems more "trekky". The whole thing is now a bit lighter, funnier, and not so dark as the first two. Which is a very good thing! I really enjoyed this one so...keep 'em coming.
The only thing that annoyed me is that they are still doing revenge stories. Time to swap that out with something that has been done to death don't you think?
Fun movie, though quite generic, and (k)nowhere near as good as the previous Star Trek: Alternate Reality movies or Guardians of the Galaxy.
Honestly I'm a bit disappointed in the movie. Sure, you get state-of-the-art gfx (but we wouldn't expect less, so no surprise here), and I love Zach's Spock and the other, but I didn't feel anything special watching this. It was all... pretty expected and with nothing new.
I'm sure the real trekkies will adore this, as it delivers what should be delivered, but for me, I didn't find the interest I was looking (and hoping) for.
Of this series, I loved Star Trek (2009) best, as it had actual character development and many interactions between them.
6.5/10 for me, so voted 6.
