With J.J. Abrams leaving for the supposedly greener pastures of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the series he first rebooted is passed into the capable hands of Justin Lin. No stranger to box office devouring franchises as director of The Fast And The Furious parts 3 – 6, Lin doesn’t have Abrams’ knack for subtle emotion but makes up for it with pure adrenaline. Star Trek Beyond is a rush – a fun addition to a series that was already impossible to dislike. The plot is unremarkable, but as the cast continue to fine tune their characters and with the welcome addition of Sofia Boutella’s alien scavenger Jaylah, this is a reboot that continues to surprise.
