After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction.
The brash James T. Kirk tries to live up to his father's legacy with Mr. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful Romulan from the future creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time.
Three decades after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, a new threat arises. The First Order attempts to rule the galaxy and only a ragtag group of heroes can stop them, along with the help of the Resistance.
After stopping off at Starbase Yorktown, a remote outpost on the fringes of Federation space, the USS Enterprise, halfway into their five-year mission, is destroyed by an unstoppable wave of unknown aliens. With the crew stranded on an unknown planet and with no apparent means of rescue, they find themselves fighting against a ruthless enemy with a well-earned hatred of the Federation and everything it stands for. Only a rebellious alien warrior can help them reunite and leave the planet to stop this deadly menace from beginning a possible galactic war. Written by
After production on the film was completed and a month before the film's release, Anton Yelchin died in a freak vehicle accident. During the ending credits, there is a dedication caption which reads, "For Anton". See more »
When the crew goes into free fall off of a cliff in the USS Franklin, they are shown to be restrained from falling forward by their seat restraints. However, this would only occur if the ship were decelerating. In fact, since the ship (and its occupants) are in free fall, they are accelerating at the same speed and the crew should be experiencing what we would call weightlessness. Of course, drag due to the atmosphere could create a differential in acceleration between the ship and the crew, but not to the dramatic extent shown. See more »
Yes, worshipers, it is attempting to be a throwback to the original series. Here is the problem, the original series taught lessons within their cheap sets, silly effects and repetitive music. After a brief gooey introduction, where we discover Kirk is soon to become a rear admiral (I am not going there), the crew is led into an ambush by people who do not know the difference between an asteroid field and a nebula (hint: one is gas the other is really big rocks). Before you decide to watch this, be forewarned, the majority of the movie takes place on the surface of Endor: The Bigger Budget Years. We soon meet Reptile Boy who has constructed a fortress of tinker toys with which he launches his amazing flying circus to perforate anyone who happens by. After a shameless ripoff of the saucer crash from Generations, we are forever walking about on Endor until we run into Albino Gene Simmons Woman (hereafter referred to as AGSW). Now, everybody who has seen Force Awakens only, what will she be like? Anyone? That is correct, just like Rey, She is a better engineer than Scotty (There, see simple!), she is smarter than Spock, and she fights better than Kirk does. Use the inversion rule, if she were a man would we not laugh our collective butts off at such a phony character? When she is introduced to us, she saves Scotty by taking out three massive aliens with power and technology that will make you ask yourself: Why is she not ruling the planet if she be so bad? She even has Rey's staff, more phallic symbolism (P.E. For Fellow Freudians) from Big Brother!
Scotty trails after her, like a homeless puppy, most of the movie; later, we see her superiority is both mental and physical. Did you laugh your butt off at Guardian Of The Galaxy's hoe-down by Tape Boy against giant Blue Jackass? Well, wait until you see how they defeat the flying circus when it starts to attack the Federation's flying erector set? Have that volume control handy, trust me, if you cannot hum the melody of a song: there is not one. SPOILER: Yes, readers, energy weapons and shields are useless against Reptile Boy and his flying circus but some really crappy metal by no talent idiots who couldn't tune Van Halen's guitars does the trick, pronto. What is painful is that during the original episodes lessons were taught, here we are treated to brainless wanderings about the planet with no lesson of any kind. Yes, worshipers, there are a few short prattlings about 'unity', which was a great slogan of the Nazis by the way. Roddenberry's humanism is utterly nonexistent. Other detractors are correct, evidently they blew their budget on the effects and did not hire a capable editor who notices when you cannot see who is in the freaking frame. Some scenes in this are as poorly lighted as AVP: Requiem. Just dreadful, the constant yelling by AGSW is most annoying. Evidently, if you don't possess muscles, just yell at massive alpha males. Try that out in a bar tonight, get back to me on that.
The main flaw of the movie is: its torturous boredom, as we roam about the planet looking for the script. There are a few funny lines but nothing that redeems the pointless, aimless boredom. Reptile Boy has flaming pants for some doorknob that activates his flying black goo weapon. Wait until you see him mount those vacuum cleaners, we died laughing! Trust me, you will be fast asleep by the time he finds it. This tragic attempt to hearken back to episodes that were written to address social issues and teach humanism shows you what happens when illiterate imbeciles attempt to copy the literary generation: it doesn't go well. I love the posters for this copying THE MOTIONLESS PICTURE, as bad as that was, the writing was miles above this. The title is a complete misnomer the more accurate title is: Star Crap: Wandering With Albino Woman. I won't spoil it for you but, if you have watched the oligarchs' mind control cinema (Force Awakens, Fury Road, San Andreas, Rogue Nation) you don't need me to tell you who saves everybody's butts. Gee, I wonder whom? See, J. J., Roddenberry used Star Trek to show man's alleged development above violence into this Utopian paradise. J.J. did not direct this time but it still has his wonderful touches: shrieking, screaming, throwing objects, mayhem, and retarded space battles with an ADD ending that has the same probability as my dating Scarlett Johansson. Have both the brightness and volume controls handy, trust me, you will need them.
Gene's quixotic, endearing faith in humanity is nowhere to be found. This movie is as humanistic as Mad Max. If only J.J. would make some Transformer movies or how about some lovely comic book classics? Please, J.J., when you finish your latest comic book, choose another genre we are dying out here. This Is Not Star Trek. A Total Piece Of InterGalactic Malodorous Excrement. Q.E.D.
