Re: When was it found out that Section 31 was i the film?
I know a lot of things were kept under wraps for a while with STID, but does anyone remember precisely when it was first discovered that Section 31 was going to have some involvement in the film's plot?
It had been speculated for months by some that Section 31 might figure in the story in some way, but I don't believe it was known for certain until a synopsis was posted in a comment thread at IMDb, on or about 23rd April (by someone who'd attended the Sydney premiere showing, I'd presume.) Also confirmed in the same synopsis: that John Harrison was actually Khan.
As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split. ~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
