Our Score
The 13th movie in the franchise marries intense action with character-driven humour and philosophical musings to deliver a phenomenally entertaining space epic. After being lured by a bogus distress call to the planet of Altamid, the crew of the Enterprise come under attack and are forced to abandon ship. Only by teaming up with a zebra-faced alien (Sofia Boutella) do they stand a chance of thwarting the war-mongering desires of lizard-like ruler Krall (Idris Elba). Director Justin Lin succeeds in paying homage to past TV-series glories (there's a moving tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy), while delivering the most spectacular special effects seen in the entire cosmic canon. The result is a superior sci-fi adventure that could well be the best Trek movie since The Wrath of Khan.

Summary

The USS Enterprise sets out on a rescue mission which turns out to be a deadly trap set by a mysterious warlord. The crew are left stranded on an unexplored planet, and join forces with a fugitive alien scavenger to find a way off the hostile world and prevent a terrible weapon being unleashed upon the galaxy. Sci-fi adventure, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Idris Elba.
