The third movie in the reboot franchise.....Celebrating 50 years of Star Trek.....RIP Leonard Nimoy....RIP AntonYelchin.
I liked the first two thirds but didn't enjoy the last third as I kinda had figured out the plot and who the bad guy was so there was no really big surprise or reveal for me. For such a big build up I felt that the resolution was a bit of a slap in the face of veterans and other folks who suffer from PTSD. I liked the style and feel of the film and thought it was much better than the second film but it for me it was a bit of a disappointment. It needed a better script.
Liked the Sofia Boutella character and her traps.
