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.

^ Nice.

I'm with you. I can't imagine whining about virtually anything about this movie.

Absolutely! His performance made the movie a Star Trek film for me. Don't forget Nimoy as well--he was a glowing endorsement for this new cast.

I thought Karl Urban's performance was well done, Deforest Kelley would be proud

All the actors did great jobs at keeping trademark elemets of the original charaters, but making the roles thier own.
