Default Sad to say... (Not very spoilerific)

But I think Nimoy was actually the weakest link in this film...

I love him, I love TOS... But compared to everything else we were presented with, his role in this film was just kinda... Meh.

Thoughts?

This seemed like a natural evolution for Spock...it was an evolution even beyond his role in "Unification I and II". Spock's lightened up over the years. He's learned a thing or two from his human friends...yet he still retains his great capacity for logic.

I thought Spock's role in this movie was far from trivial. At least it wasn't a cameo.

I think you're wrong.

His part may be small, but its a damn sight better than a 20 second cameo, which is was I was expecting to be honest.

His part, all though not integral to the film, was important to explain a few things.

It wasn't the length of the part that "meh'd" me. It was the quality of the writing for his dialogue, and sadly... The way he presented it. Did not feel Spockey.

But thank you, Martok. That explaination actually makes sense. I think I should see Unification 1 and 2 again...

I have. Glad I did, too. That

(SPOILER!)











Mind meld section....





(END SPOILER)


Was all too brief, and semi-lame. Probably the weakest scene in the film... But a necessary evil.
