Star Trek Beyond ★★★

To my surprise, this turns out to be the best of the three ‘new Trek’ movies. That’s mostly down to Justin Lin’s energetic direction, with some original action set-pieces that distract from the hoary script and a flat villain with unclear motivations. It’s not particularly good, so, but it’s exceedingly more watchable than the overwrought Into Darkness – and it’s a damn sight better than the trailer suggests.
