I've heard speculation that he's going to be Khan, but I don't believe it.

So is this one actually going to be Star Trek or is it going to be Generic Sci-Fi Movie That Uses Star Trek Names For Characters II?

Booooooo.

I'll still watch it and it'll probably still be pretty good, the first one was pretty good, but can we please have a real Star Trek movie again? I mean Nemesis wasn't great but it was Star Trek at least instead of a taking a random science fiction story and doing search and replace of the main character's name with "Kirk."

The villain is played by Benedict Cumberbatch. *A* Not even the amount of lens flares can stop my excitement. [/fangirl]

Either way, I am excited so see what they do with this movie.

This movie looks way way to exciting to be Star Terk. Where are the boring political talks? The techno-babel? I dunno about this..

It's ten dollars I'm never getting back for a movie that I found mildly enjoyable for a couple hours and pretty mediocre ever since. At this point, I doubt I'm going to see any more new Star Trek movies.

I saw it last Saturday. I really liked it ^_^ I didn't find it as good as the last one though. As a Sherlock fan, I was really interested to see Benedict Cumberbatch act a villain. He did a good job :)

You know what would have been awesome?

SPOILER: Highlight text to read: When they open up the torpedo and find a man inside, it would have been so awesome if it was Martin Freeman.

I too, was really interested to see a pale-faced man cast as an Indian. I can't wait for the third Star Trek movie, where they cast Gilbert Gottfried as Geordi LaForge.

I think the degree people enjoy this movie is inversely proportional to haw seriously they take it.

Bad scifi aside, I think that most of the movie's writing problems stem from the fact that it is SPOILER: Highlight text to read: a 'Young Kirk' story instead of an 'Old Kirk' one. It completely shifts the perspectives of the characters, this is not the battle between the experienced command crew of the Enterprise against the out-of-time genius of Kahn. No little "hours seem like days" inside codes, no Lt. Savik to explain their brilliance to.

Both of the movies have fallen into what in the original timeline would have been prior to the original series. I kind of wish old Spock a said something like "Kahn, already? that's odd." Just to lampshade it a bit.

Now that I stop to consider, one of the other things that bugs me about the remakes is the lack of any discussion of ship positioning or maneuvering anywhere. This leaves the battles feeling flat, boring 'warp into range and shoot till somebody explodes' affairs; the suspense of seeing who can slip into firing position first. We also lose out on that "attack pattern indicates two-dimensional thinking" bit, which in my opinion was one of the better examples for intelligence and wisdom being separate qualities to appear in cinema.

Ah well, at least we got rid of Project Genesis and the whole reborn Spock plot. And may rest safe in the knowledge that we'll need at least one more movie before the space whales one. After all Kirk has to steal Doc Brown's time traveling Bird of Prey after he kills his son. :P


I don't think Cumberbatch would have been anywhere near as interesting a villain if people didn't already know who he was.

I don't know; I went into it with a popcorn frame of mind and came away quite entertained.

Stop making me think about this you're ruining it. :P

Well, to be fair... SPOILER: Highlight text to read: Let's consider that they first found Khan in the original series; the movie itself is called "The Wrath of Khan" because it's his revenge ten or fifteen years later.

Also, they kind of explained why Khan might have been found earlier with a line about Admiral Marcus sending out exploratory teams as a result of the brewing war with the Klingons or something like that. Plus, if Marcus had access to the records and he wanted to enlist Khan's help, he probably had a pretty good idea where to look for the ship.

I think it's quite logical that Spock wouldn't show surprise at differences in the time line, considering that the destruction of Vulcan would be a huge deviation that would inevitably screw with everything.


As for the whole white guy playing an Indian thing, it's probably only slightly worse than having the same Indian played by a Mexican, as if we have no idea what the difference is. Granted, it would have been SO MUCH BETTER if they'd gotten Dev Patel. He would have been the BEST KHAN EVER.

All joking aside, though, a racially accurate Khan played by Sendhil Ramamurthy (Mohinder from Heroes) would have been pretty awesome.

You are forgiven, my child. Your penance will be to watch three episodes of TOS Star Trek.

True but I feel like "Hey the original wasn't even completely accurate" isn't much of an excuse to go even further in the opposite direction. Just because you did something not quite right before doesn't give you license to do worse. If you're already driving on the wrong side of the road that doesn't mean you should go "Well since I'm already doing this, might as well drive twice the speed limit too!"

Saw it, loved it.

Have not really watched many Star Trek series or films (just Voyager and the recent films), and don't consider myself a fan of the franchise, but I think it's growing on me.

I thought that this show was fairly good, but I think the original (Wrath of Khan) was by far better. Mostly I just thought that the movie went to fast paced, yes having fast paced moments are good, but too much of it, in my opinion, makes the movie one drawn out action film.

I'm a fan of the original Star Trek myself. Still, I can grasp that this is a reboot with a different approach and still enjoy it. I'll go as far as to say that this one was better than the one released back in 2009. Maybe there were a lot of technical issues, but that's not why I went to see the movie. I went for the action..

This was a good movie in its own right as a sci-fi action film. However it can't beat the original Wrath of Khan from 1982 which is one of my favorite Star Trek movies.
