It's funny, my rating was A+ the first time I saw it. With subsequent viewings I began to feel kinda jerked around: here'e your moment of a) Zen. b) emotion. c) discussion. d) discussion with contentious McCoy and Snarky Spock. e) Kirk diving thru space. f) Kirk getting laid. g) Kirk getting the crap beat out of him. h) Ditto. i) Ditto. j) romance. k) couple moments in a coupla moments with Spock and Uhura. j) Big Emotion. Here's your Enterprise Rising Out of a) ocean b) clouds. Here's your moment of Kirk hanging off a) catwalk in Engineering b) Warp Core thingy above thingy Kirk has to kick.Oh yeah and let's not forget the head-squishin' kidney-kickin' leg-breakin' action superstar Khan, which, WHY. Couldn't he have been Captain Garth, disillusioned by the existence of Section 31? Ugh.
This Khan plot is [sadly] probably going to evolve further in the next movie. It's too bad.
