This week on the Harold & Maudecast's Now Streaming Reviews, STAR TREK BEYOND! It premiered at Comic Con in July 2016 and has just been released on DVD and is Now Streaming on Amazon and other VOD services.
This time around, James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and the crew of the enterprise head into uncharted space on a rescue mission to help an alien ship that has been attacked by an unknown foe. After discovering there is no ship to rescue, they quickly find themselves under attack by a new enemy, Krall (Idris Elba) and his army who capture the crew, destroy the ship, and leave Jim and the gang dispersed and defenseless on an alien planet. As Jim tries to save his crew members, Krall plots to destroy the Federation. It's up to our heroes to stop him.
START TREK BEYOND, is an action packed, visually exciting, fun thrill ride. All the returning Enterprise crew members are back including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Jon Cho and Anton Yelchin. New to space in addition to Idris Elba brilliantly playing bad guy Krall is Sofia Boutella (KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE) as alien baddass, Jaylah. Sweet tributes to Yelchin and Leonard Nimoy who both passed in 2016. Much justice for STAR TREK BEYOND. This 3rd installment of the JJ Abrahams reboot is helmed by Justin Lin (Fast Furious franchise) and written by Simon Pegg (aka Scotty) and Doug Jung (CONFIDENCE). The new direction and writing makes an enormous impact on the blueprint of the film, sending us into uncharted territory with this franchise. Witty, fresh, and captivating from beginning to end, STAR TREK BEYOND is definitely worth the Stream. 8.5/10
