During Spock's fight with Khan, a six-note musical cue can be heard which is strongly reminiscent of the score from an episode of the original series, "Amok Time", during a scene where Kirk and Spock are fighting to the death. This can be heard on the score in the track called "The San Fran Hustle" at approximately 1:58. See more »
During the Spock/Khan chase scene, when Spock is jumping onto the flying craft he has his laser in his hand, but then when he jumps it is suddenly not there and there is no way for him to put it into his belt shows because he holds on to the craft with two hands. See more »
JJ Abrams killed Star Trek. There, I said it. This wasn't a Star Trek movie, this was a Star Wars movie. JJ Abrams, who is also making the next Star Wars movie, apparently had the plots for the two movies mixed up. Whereas Star Trek is about human development, about humanity, exploring, complicated issues that are mainly resolved by thinking and arguing, Star Wars has always just been some shootouts in space. Don't get me wrong: I like action movies every now and then, especially in a Sci-Fi setting. I watch Star Wars as well.
But like I said: this is not supposed to be Star Wars. This is Star Trek. After the first 'new' Trek movie I wanted to give the creators the benefit of the doubt, but I was wrong. I could have known: the setup in the previous movie was like in every superhero movie these days: introduction of characters, background stories, introduction of some bad guy, a few fights, person/country/planet/universe saved. Second movie: worse bad guy(s), bigger fights, more explosions, BIGGER EXPLOSIONS, something saved again.
This was a formula movie. Another one. Movie theaters are flooded with them. The Hangover III, Fast and Furious V, Iron Man III, Scary Movie V, and that's just what's playing in theaters here in Holland *right now*.
Please please... somebody save Star Trek. Gene Roddenberry would have HATED this movie. It's everything Star Trek is nót about.
Boy do I miss Picard and Sisko.
