This is a massive thread with hundreds if not thousands of posts, so I won't go into a full 'review' here. I will say that this movie, of all the previous Trek outings, was the most human. There were a lot of tears in this movie, our crew actually felt things on screen in ways that we've never really seen before. The gut punch of Kirk losing his command and the tears of gratitude when Pike moved heaven and earth to put Kirk back on a starship. Uhura listening as Spock tells her why he seems so reckless and uncaring. 'Harrison' recounting his reaction to the fate of his crew.

Whatever its shortcomings, this movie absolutely nailed the people who live and work on the Enterprise and their relationships with each other.
Some say that his ghost haunts Gambon turn and that, if you listen closely, you can still hear the screams from his watery Jaguar grave.

All we know is, he's not The Stig but he is The Stig's undead predecessor!
