Star Trek: Beyond (PG-13)
Directed by: Justin Lin
The pitch: A rescue mission turns into a battle for survival when the Enterprise is destroyed and the crew get trapped on an alien world.
Never miss a local story.
The formula: Engage moments of the first “Star Trek” reboot movie. Use parts of “Fast & Furious 6.” Beam in some of the themes from the original “Star Trek” TV show.
Go see it: If you own a pair of Vulcan ears.
Don’t go see it: If you don’t know the difference between “Star Trek” and “Star Wars.”
Keep your eyes open: There are numerous Easter Eggs hidden in the movie. If you aren’t a big fan of the series, find someone who is to take with you.
