The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by Justin Lin. Star­ring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Ur­ban, Zoe Sal­dana, Si­mon Pegg, An­ton Yelchin, John Cho, Idris Elba, Sofia Boutella The team is dis­patched to res­cue a ship stranded within the 13th screen of an As­teroids game. The mis­sion turns out to be a trap and the se­nior crew get split up into dis­cor­dant pairs on an un­friendly planet. Evil Idris Elba awaits. Lin or­ches­trates the ac­tion bril­liantly, and the bro­mances are as much fun as ever, but this feels very much like a high-end hold­ing pat­tern. Ex­pect no rev­e­la­tions or philo­soph­i­cal hi-jinks. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 122 min DC
