Blu-Ray and Digital HD Releases Today
Star Trek Beyond – The next installment to the popular reboot of Star Trek hits shelves today.
This time around, Fast and Furious director Justin Lin takes the reins from JJ Abrams in this action-packed sci-fi movie. The film finds Captain Kirk and his faithful crew in the middle of a five-year mission as they investigate an unknown nebula due to a distress call.
Little does the crew know, a nefarious alien race awaits them and is bent on destroying the Enterprise and the Federation that the crew is a part of.
The new direction for the film is very apparent and is reflective of Justin Lin’s non-stop action style. While the film doesn’t quite hit the emotional notes JJ Abrams did, it works as a Summer movie, full of visual action, mindless fun, and just entertaining all around.
However, there is a slight undertone to the movie due to the real life passing of two notable Star Trek actors. First, is legendary actor Leonard Nimoy who played Spock in the original series. It was touching to see the film interweave his real life death and pay homage to the character within the storyline. The other notable actor was Anton Yelchin, who tragically died in a freak accident earlier this year. Watching Anton, added a bit of a somber note especially during his ebullient performance in the film. The film also pays tribute to them both in a touching clip titled “For Leonard and Anton” as one of the extra featurettes for the films home release.
The film looks and sounds solid in its 1080p transfer and Dolby Atmos soundtrack. Extra features include a 10 minute featurette on the themes and characters of the film, two very short deleted scenes, and several other short clips exploring the villains, locations, and an exploration of each character in action.
Although it’s cliche to talk about how difficult it is to make a “third” film well, this film is great for a “third” film, especially in the shadow of JJ Abrams and the deaths of two notable Star Trek actors. A must have for any sci-fi fan out there.
