Running time: 122 minutes
Now out on DVD and Blu-ray!
Probably one of the rarer times you see me actually posting a current movie, but well that’s part of my blog’s algorithm so here it is, after catching with a couple of my friends the previous weekend. While this may be a sequel in this series of movies so far, from what I see, prior knowledge is not entirely critical, as this time we will be headed for a new adventure in the vast space out there.
There will be some returning faces, and perhaps some of the pre-existing relationship or bonding which they have may not exactly be explained here, but it will still be showcased when needed. For the most part, I would say that following the movie along for the storyline would be best, rather than me providing some sort of spoiler over here. That said, there are still some occasions where I felt that the continuity is slightly inconsistent, or at least it didn’t “make much sense” other than to make it look good in the cinematic aspect of things.
I like some of the soundtrack pieces used in the movie, and I remember a similar feeling for the earlier productions. I suppose it does add some sort of enjoyment aspect into the viewing experience which is definitely a welcomed element for me. With the way the movie is set, it is definitely open for more to come, in fact I think it could go on “forever” as long as they can come up with something interesting or new in their adventures.
Overall, it was a fairly good watch even though at some parts I felt it was a little off the pace I would prefer. Oh well, guess not a bad pick for my rare “return” to the theatre for viewing. My take: 6.5/10
p.s. when will be my next visit?
