Dang it, I keep making that mistake.
So, they opted for one and only, instead of a ship entirely manned by Kahn Clones,
(note, he's never addressed fully as the Ricardo Montalban alpha we know. This Cumberbatch kahn might be one of many...)
Though you can see the overhangs of that concept made it to the final film (the bad guy ship being automated and all...)
and the ending is entirely open enough to allow that to happen again.
The film really speaks to fans on so many levels,
the pacing was warp-speed,
the tensions in the film made the audience feel like they were the warp core,
particularly with so many reversals of fortune and comedy, (The opening sequence is greatly appreciated!)
and the confusion of labels (like friend and foe) was really appreciated!
Thanks for another AWESOME film, which I'll go see another 10 times like all the other films = )
Now for the griping;
Whats up with the "look" for Klingons? They dont look quite like either incarnation yet seen... decidely wimpy looking and more dog-like (rather than wolf-like and fierce).
The cuts between setting in act 2... confusing is an understatement. It all adds to the sense of "whats happening" but a few patrons got up and left cause they couldnt keep up/"had someplace better to be".
And the most pressing annoyance: When will fans get a TV show out of this spinoff? = ) (It'd be better than Lost)
Come on, its been 4 years between episodes... 2 episodes in 4 years... If there's another film, thats 3 episodes in 4-7years.
The production value is terrific, quality trumps quantity and all, and I can already hear others jumping in to defend that.
I'd actually rather see some mini-series or a full-fledged show as a happy compromise.
Over to you:
What did you think of Star Trek 2: Wrath of Kahn and Star Trek, Into Darkness?
Any standouts from this film you liked? Gripes at all?
How do you think Star Trek will fair against the other films, as it has been a plentiful movie crop this past 18months? I fear it will lag into say 5th place overall, which could jeopardise future projects... we'll see though once box office takings come back what the actuality is.
