Just back from seeing the film. Gave it an A-. I think it had a decent story. They didn't give enough of a reason why Khan was a Sahib Brit (they could have put in a bit about Section 31 doing Facial and Voice Reconstruction surgery on him while he was under to give him a completely new identity in the 23rd Century). So Khan's backstory isn't quite laid out, and his need for revenge isn't quite as compelling as the Montalban's Khan was against Kirk Prime. It may have been in an objective sense, but that needs to be laid out for the audience in dialogue, and it really wasn't. Weak Sauce. Transwarp beaming? Why have Starfleet? I was very satisfied with the philosophical case that was being made in the film against the militarization of Starfleet and the argument against preemptive war. The writers did do a good job implying that, with the destruction of Vulcan, the War Party appears on the ascendance in the Federation.
