I definitely felt that Karl Urban really, truly took McCoy from Kelley and respected what he had done and continued that.

Urban really nailed McCoy and was a highlight of the film.

Urban was the closest to the original character out of all the new actors IMHO. Not an impression, but the character Dee Kelly created.

A nice, and unexpected bonus.

Leonard Nimoy is the greatest! He was right. Urban was fantastic as McCoy. The origin of the nickname "Bones" was a priceless moment is this fantastic movie filled with priceless moments.

I think I might actually be dying a little.

Breathe slowly. In. Out. In. Out. Very good.

No, I....I think my lungs may be bursting, I think I'm taking a little too much IN and not enough OUT....

Remember when the first trailer came out, and people immediately starting whining that (1) he sounds nothing like McCoy, (2) looks nothing like McCoy, and (3) has a stupid line that sounds nothing like anything the real McCoy would say?

Well, I'm glad that the whiners got proven wrong on yet another count. Karl Urban certainly made himself 'the real McCoy' for this one.

(retroactive Bad Pun Alert on that last line)
