star-trek-beyondAs the largely forgettable and sleep-inducing third film in the reboot of the original series, Star Trek Beyond added little new to the Star Trek universe. In an attempt to make up for its weak story, with contrived obstacles which were overcome in seconds after they were discovered, it seems that Lin and company were banking on the 3D special effects and action sequences to overcome the plot deficiencies. Considering the film’s box office success, it seems that their gamble paid off (Klaus Ming August 2016).
