The third installment in the Star Trek reboot series, Star Trek Beyond follows the crew of the USS Enterprise as they embark on a mission to explore the uncharted territories of space. Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and his crew, including Spock (Zachary Quinto), Bones (Karl Urban), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Scotty (Simon Pegg), Sulu (John Cho), and Chekov (Anton Yelchin), face new challenges and obstacles as they encounter a menacing new villain named Krall (Idris Elba).

The movie is set three years into the Enterprise's five-year mission, and the crew is starting to feel the strain of being cooped up together for so long. Kirk is beginning to wonder why he joined Starfleet in the first place, while Spock is struggling with the news that Ambassador Spock (the original Spock, played by Leonard Nimoy) has passed away. Meanwhile, a distress signal leads the Enterprise to a mysterious planet where they are ambushed by Krall and his army of drones. After crash-landing on the planet's surface, the crew must find a way to work together to defeat Krall and his evil plans.

The plot of the movie is fast-paced and action-packed, with plenty of stunning visuals and thrilling space battles. From the opening sequence, which sees Kirk negotiating with an alien species while trying to prevent his ship from being attacked, to the final showdown between the Enterprise crew and Krall on his home planet, the movie never lets up. There are moments of humor and heart, too, as the filmmakers explore the relationships between the various crew members and the bonds that exist between them.

One of the highlights of the movie is the introduction of new character Jaylah (Sofia Boutella), a tough and resourceful alien who helps the Enterprise crew in their fight against Krall. Boutella's performance is impressive, and her character adds a fresh dynamic to the group that fans will love. There are also some moments of fan service, such as a touching tribute to Nimoy's Spock and a scene featuring a beloved Star Trek character from the past.

In terms of performances, the cast is as strong as ever. Pine is charming and charismatic as Kirk, while Quinto brings his usual intensity to the role of Spock. Urban is a standout as Bones, delivering some of the movie's funniest lines with perfect comedic timing. Saldana, Cho, and Pegg also get their moments to shine, and Yelchin's performance as Chekov is particularly poignant given his tragic death in 2016.

Overall, Star Trek Beyond is a worthy addition to the Star Trek franchise. It's a fun and exciting adventure that will appeal to both long-time fans and newcomers to the series. The movie strikes a balance between action and heart, and its themes of unity, loyalty, and perseverance are particularly resonant in today's world. Whether seen in 2D or 3D, on the big screen or at home, Star Trek Beyond is a must-watch for any sci-fi fan.

Star Trek Beyond is a 2016 action movie with a runtime of 2 hours and 2 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.0 and a MetaScore of 68.
