As the latest outing of this International Mega franchise hits the shores, the excitement around its release is palpable. Star Trek Beyond not only follows the very divisive sequel Into Darkness, but it’s also being released amid the mega-franchise’s 50th anniversary celebration. I am pretty sure that the late Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry would have been impressed. The movie picks up from where the makers had left it.
With Veteran action director Justin Lin at the helm of things with this one, you cannot but expect firework action sequences. When the maker of the Fast and Furious takes control, things are sure to heat up further!
Idris Elba is very convincing as the conniving evil force who’s trying to bring the enterprise down. The sequence of his sneaky attack on the Enterprise is completely mind boggling and visually stunning! Chris Pine in his third outing as Kirk plays the role meticulously, fighting evil and saving the day.
Beyond is a terrific follow up to the iconic series and continues to keep the STAR TREK loyal fan base happy and satiated. With state of art special effects, latest technology and a fresh modern take, it engages the youth convincingly. The story line doesn’t deviate from the earlier episodes but also adds a relationship angle which is surely being lapped up by the audience. The enterprise’s original crew – Kirk, Spock, Scotty and Bones are joined by some new characters including Jaylah, played by Sofia Boutella as an alien stranded on the island who joins hands with the enterprise in a bid to escape.
The visuals are inventive and the action scenes are compelling. NY Times, CNN and every major News house abroad has been raving about BEYOND in generous doses making it an absolute MUST WATCH for the audiences here. As for the diehard fans of the series, well expect the best of the best guys! I can’t reveal much of the storyline but awe and entertainment is surely guaranteed! Oh, and the sound score by Beastie Boys is surely another add on. Mainstream cine goers will surely enjoy this Sci-Fi thriller as much as the loyalists. Colossal Closet is super excited about #StarTrekInIndia. Are you?
