Our Score
The best Trek movie since The Wrath of Khan? Could be, as the 13th movie in the long-running franchise marries such quintessential, old-school Gene Roddenberry material (co-written by fanboy and Scotty actor Simon Pegg) as intense Final Frontier action, character-driven humour and philosophical musings with the most spectacular special effects seen in the entire cosmic canon. Lured by a bogus distress call to the distant planet Altamid, the dispersed Enterprise crew must regroup, with the help of a zebra-faced alien (Sofia Boutella), to thwart the war-mongering desires of lizard-like ruler Krall (an underused Idris Elba). Paying homage to past TV-series glories and with a moving tribute to Leonard Nimoy, director Justin Lin draws on his Fast and Furious experience to upscale the intergalactic battle thrills and visually majestic spills into the hyperspeed stratosphere while ensuring the now-comfortable cast make the most of their interpersonal dynamics. A phenomenally entertaining and superior space epic.

Summary

After the USS Enterprise is attacked during a rescue mission, Kirk, Spock and the crew struggle for survival on an alien planet while their mysterious assailant carries out his plans. Sci-fi adventure, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Idris Elba.
