And Kirk lives, why does everyone dead come back in an over-dramitic way?
Yeah, I know, I didn't want to give everything
away, but I guess that's what spoiler tags are for. And BTW, I knew Kirk was coming back with the blood, as soon as I saw Bones mess with it I knew it was gonna be significant later.
Saw the movie last night. Fantastic!
One thing i will say is I'm very happy that i kept off all Trek forums and resisted the urge to click on links about the new movie. I went into it blind not really having any clue who the vilian was, nor the plot. Now i'm a big fan of star trek (Call me a trekie if you must i guess), and I thought everything fit together quite well. Trekkies seriously just need to get over that this isn't the origanl series, there's an intirely new timeline so now anything goes. The review that was posted in the 1rst page couldn't be farther from the truth. The characters had great depth, dialog, everything was set up very well. However...
I did feel that knowing who Khan was to start with helped understand just how evil and demented he was. When he reveals his true idenity to Krik...
"My name.... Is Khan!" ..wouldn't have had the same impact had i not known who Khan was in the first place. (although i figured who he really was when he started battling the Klingons and jumping 40+ft without problems as well as demonstrating his strength.
Overall i think everything fit very well. Although i know hard core trekkies didn't care fore all the changes in the timeline, i think that's what i love about these movies. There's nothing that's off limits, and endless possibilities now. And Kudos to J.J. Abrams for paying homage to ST-II. I really liked how he worked in simular lines that were in The Wrath of Khan.
