Re: Nero: "It happened! I saw it happen..."

It's funny to me that people don't like the line. For me, this is the line that sold me on Nero. We've seen the crazy madman wants revenge plenty of times in Trek's past, but with this line, Bana convinced me that he was playing someone who was hurt, not just insane. It was something we'd never seen in a Trek film before, it humanized the villain in a really subtle way (that sadly, I don't think is in the screenplay, just the performance) and I thought it was great.
