The story picks up in the middle of the Enterprises famous 5 year journey. And amazingly they hit it head on. Discussing and bringing forth the fatigue, the boredom, the routine that comes on from such a long journey. But luckily the ship is getting a resupply and shore leave stop at the Federations newest Starbase. The massive space snowglobe that is Yorktown station. From there they are dispatched on an emergency rescue mission (in full on Trek tradition the Enterprise is as always the ONLY ship in range.)
And thus begins the movies first major action sequence. Like all such action sequences in modern movies, goes on far far longer than it is able to hold the viewers attention. To give ST Beyond credit, it is actually less guilty of this than most other modern movies. This one goes on only almost too long as opposed to much too long. Battle, destruction, running on walls, things falling, Enough Explosions to satiate Michael Bay.
From there the crew are scattered on a remote planet. Most captured and enslaved by a nasty alien race. It is during this period that we get a tremendous amount of really really good character moments. The Spock/McCoy interactions are some of the best moments in any Trek movie, going back to the Shatner/Nimor/Kelly era. we meet the new badass alien battle chick (who I hope becomes a franchise regular. She was that much fun.) And we get to watch Star Trek being Star Trek and Kirk being Kirk. of a particular delight to Star Trek fans is the story draws heavily not simply from the original 1960's Star Trek, but it also ties it together incredibly well with the 2000's era Star Trek Enterprise prequel TV show. It bridges the gap unexpectedly.
Negatives, yeah there are a few. The biggest involves the use of some glaring 20th century anachronisms far far too much. Much like the annoying Corvette scene at the begining of Star Trek 2009, we have a Kirk on a motorcycle scene that both feels wildly out of place, and does once again go on minutes too long. And the final climax or solution to the problem seems to come straight out of "Mars Attacks". It's jaw droppingly stupid. Although you can't hate it too much as it knows it is stupid, and fully takes ownership of the stupid, which makes it both more ok and rather meta.
The only other flaw with the movie revolves around Idris Alba's bad guy. he feels under developed. Which is heartbreaking once we finally learn his backstory. Further add to this that they layered Alba under tons of prosthetics. Alba is one of the worlds current finest actors. But acting through prosthetics is a special skillset. Actors such as Ron Perlman have made a career of mastering it. Alba much like the similarly taleneted Oscar Issacs over in X-Men Apocalypse was far to confined and restricted in the makeup and suit. It muffled too much of what he brought to the role. It turned him into a mediocre throwaway villain instead of the more memorable Khan like antagonist he should have been.
Given Anton Yeltsin's tragic death after making the movie, the final scene is amazing, heartrending and the perfect goodbye. Overall the movie is a much watch for Star Trek fans. And was one of the more fun genre movies in an overly crowded summer. Well worth owning and watching at home.
I'm not a big fan of CGI for the sake of CGI. However, the technology really adds to the "feel" of the movie in ways that stone-age special effects just can't.
Sure, it's fantastic and probably a bit over-the-top to a Trekkie purist, but time marches on and, in this case, it marched smartly and precisely.
The plot makes good use of the usual characters and adds a few new ones that are quite interesting. I don't think that anyone can replace Leonard Nimoy as Spock, but Zachary Quinto comes pretty close. Anyway, how does one replace a legend?
I'm too lazy to look up the name of the Casting Director but, he/she did one heck of a job. Karl Urban bears an amazing resemblance to DeForest Kelly and his interaction with Quinto brings back a lot of good memories of the original McCoy/Spock relationship. Zoe Saldana as Uhura adds a lot of depth to that role and John Cho, Anton Yelchin and Simon Pegg as Sulu, Chekov and Scott, respectively, handle their parts with professionalism.
What can be said about Idris Elba that hasn't already been said? While his character (Krall) doesn't live up to the ultimate Star Trek villian (who else but Ricardo Montalban as Khan?) that's no reflection on his acting as some additional development of the character would not have wasted his talent. Somehow, they even got Jeff Bezos a bit part but I don't see an Oscar in his future. :-).
Perhaps I missed something, but what did the "swarm" actually consist of? Were they some sort of nano-bots or something biological? In any case, the idea works and works well.
If you're a die-hard Trekkie or just a casual fan of the franchise, "Beyond" will not disappoint.
