Spot on, AnthonyF
. I thought the same when watching the movie - not bad overall, but the whole Khan reveal felt like a cheap trick.
Another thing that annoyed me to no end was the fact that several scenes felt as if they were just added to the movie so that they could be used out of context in one of the misleading trailers. For example the villain ship, which looked similar enough to the Enterprise so that its crash into water could
have been the Enterprise. Or the Enterprise rising from the ocean in a completely separate scene, made to look as if it might
be a follow-up to the crash.
