Hitting the big screen for the third installment of the series, Star Trek Beyond stars Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Commander Spock. This sci-fi blockbuster hit theater in the summer of 2016. This action-packed blockbuster continues the voyage of the S.S. Enterprise on their five-year exploration mission.

Star Trek Beyond was a great third movie to the franchise; a movie that tested the way the viewers see the crew of the starship Enterprise. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie as an extension of the modern Star Trek generation; it’s a great new story of what the Enterprise could run into exploring the reaches of deep space. The story was one more of action and not of plot, but there were points of great storytelling. Captain James T. Kirk has been formed over the last two movies and has learned each time that he wants to stay with the S.S. Enterprise and her crew. This movie has more explosions and thrilling parts than plot dense parts. The effects in the movie were superb and used computer-generated effects for the majority of the movie to create amazing scenes in space or on another planet far away from Earth.

If you’re looking for a purely sci-fi experience, Star Trek Beyond might not be for certain people. But if you’re looking for a film that is full of story and strong plot, this is not the movie for you. Star Trek Beyond calls to a certain audience of people who grew up watching the original series or young ones that are just getting into the series. I think that this movie had great actors that have been consistent over the past three films.
