Default My thoughts on STID (Beware Spoilers)…

Okay, while I thoroughly enjoyed Star Trek Into Darkness I have to say it was nothing more than (to coin a new saying) “Popcorn Trek”.

The whole Harrison is Khan thing felt flat and contrived and Cumberbatch’s performance nowhere near the intensity and vibrancy of the late great Ricardo Montalban’s in the Wrath of Khan. In fact, one wonders why they needed the villain to be Khan at all, it just wasn’t necessary if the story had been thought out more. That said, I think Benicio Del Toro would have been the better Khan. Cumberbatch was totally off the mark. Bad call casting him in my book. If they had to go the Khan route then they should have stuck to the original characters description and background totally.
Personally, I would have like to have seen Khan and his cohorts escape from a Section 31 detention center… take over the Vengance and wreak havoc upon Starfleet with the new photon torpedoes… before disappearing into Klingon space…with the Enterprise in pursuit!

On the subject of the Klingons… I’ve gotta say I really disliked the new look… they are less fearsome looking in my opinion.
