HKFanatic's rating of the film Star Trek Beyond

"Into Darkness" was a film so grim and portentous, it buckled under its own weight. Three years later, "Beyond" is the course correction: a sequel so breezy and inconsequential, it feels light as air. Whether it's proof of the property's diminishing brand or merely indicative of how dismal this Election year has been, "Beyond" is the first "Star Trek" picture I've seen that's less engaging than an in-flight movie.
