A Film That Honors The Past and Looks To The Future
Despite some underwhelming trailers I was incredibly excited to see Star Trek Beyond because I'm a massive Star Trek fan and had faith that the filmmakers would want to make the best film possible for the 50th anniversary and they did just that as this is one of the best films I've seen all year. While this film still has its haters its without out a doubt the least divisive film of the rebooted franchise because this film truly does strike the perfect balance between what classic Star Trek fans what and what more modern viewers are looking for. This is definitely the most dialogue driven of the films so far but it works because a lot of the original to series episodes were dialogue driven but were still incredibly entertaining and Beyond defiantly does feel like an episode of the original series. By far one of the most admirable things about this film is the fact that it manages to give the entire cast something to do and give odd pairs who haven't spent a lot of time together in the past time to bond and makes for some brilliant character dynamics especially that of Spock and Bones who in the past have always been adept odds with one and other but here you really get the feeling of a mutual respect growing between the two and maybe even a friendship. Jaylah was an excellent addition to this cast she's not only a very funny character but she also fits right in with the cast and has some very emotional scenes talking about he Past and reasons for being in her position. I love the fact that they chose to include an NX class ship as a big fan of Enterprise it was really great to see the ship one more time. Krall may just be my favourite Star Trek villain I adored the design of the character and his motivations that gave him a much more personal touch than Past villains of the franchise. This films most touching scene is its tribute to the original series and cast and it's a truly heartwarming scene that any Star Trek fan will truly love.
Star Trek Beyond is truly one of this years best films it manages to Honor the past of Star Trek while still being very modern and accessible to everybody and at this point I'm starting to feel just as comfortable with this cast that I am with the original.
