Why this movie will succeed? You can see his saliva spew out while shouting that order! Classic stuff




For those who called him Shinzon 2

Feel sad that Ricardo won't see his worthy successor

If Nero beats Khan as a Trek villain I will eat my shorts and I will do it on this forum.

Now before we go into a needless Khan v/s anyone battle, lets remember why we liked him

1. He looked good
2. He had good lines
3. He had a history with Kirk which we knew.

Nero has
1. Eric Bana who looks deviously good as Nero
2. He has what look like classic lines [ For a time travelling film atleast ]
3. Eric Bana looks psychotic like Khan. I just hope to god they show the reason why Nero is mad.

I'm hoping they show the reason Nero's mad as well, if he is indeed mad, he may just be obsessed. That's the problem with most of the recent villains in Trek. They were not explained well, where they came from, why they're doing what they're doing. Certainly they were explained enough to get the continuity across but that's about it. Mostly they've been 2 dimensional mustache twirling villains, but from this trailer it seems Nero has some meat to him and may be a bit more than the typical baddie!

And if he is as good as Khan; I will eat my shorts.

I like that Nero seems to be a man driven to desperation by having lost everything. And I mean <i>everything</i>, not just those who meant the most to him. He's lost so much that no amount of destruction or harm will seem excessive to him, if it means he might somehow get back what he lost, or at least take some kind of revenge for it.

It won't make him a sympathetic figure, but it'll make him believable. More 'human', if you like. "Evil for the sake of being evil" is just silly, generally. There's almost always a reason.

Also... is it just the lighting, or does his face have a visibly green tint? It'd be cool if they kept that, it was one of the makeup advances that impressed me on Enterprise - the Vulcans flushing green when they're exerted or angry.

:edit: Kevin Smith, who's seen the film already (albeit perhaps not the final cut) reckons it's the best Trek film since The Wrath of Khan. Whether that means he feels Khan is better, or if these two films are equal, it's hard to say.

If the movie suceeds it will need a great nemesis to focus on.

Kevin Smith's a director of various oddball films. A few months ago, he and a number of other 'industry insiders' got to see a special advance screening of Star Trek and Watchmen, and he had high praise for both. He didn't say much about Trek, though, except that the new cast are very good, and the film is the best since The Wrath of Khan.
