Goofs

When Hutch drives the van into the bronze statue of Captain Kirk and Khan in Iowa, the statue is broken into several pieces revealing a white center at the broken edges. However, at the scene where Admiral Seasholtz screams out just before kissing the broken head of Khan, you can see that all the broken edges are bronze like the rest of the statue. See more »

I Saw This Today (12.7.08)
7 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

This was shown today at the Santa Fe Film Festival.

I truly loved it, totally unexpected, as I knew very little about the film. Someone today mentioned a February release, but they also said that was not confirmed, so take that date only as a possible.

I can say that I think you wont be disappointed, it hits a lot of notes, none of them bad. Lots of actors I've never seen before, their interaction was natural, it felt like their relationships were real.

There was a good sized crowd, so it seems there was a lot of interest here at the film festival, and everyone applauded at the end.
