All Klingons can do is wave pointy objects and chant gutturally about honor and death. Apparently.
That's TNG's fault. Who's to say what Klingons can and can't be? Before TNG came along, they weren't like that at all.
True - before TNG they were mustache-twirling fascists from a propagandistic war movie. Fuck the Klingons. Cool spaceships, though.
They're using the Klingons in this movie anyway, but choosing them as an adversary is in no way "thinking outside the box." Using Khan is far more daring than dragging the bumpheads out of the costume closet One...More...Time!
