In the opening sequence on Nibiru, as Kirk and Bones are running, the ground looks artificially hexagonal, almost as though the ground were paved with hexagonal slabs. However, this pattern can happen in nature, as it has in the "Giants Causeway" in Northern Ireland. See more »
Cyborg science officer "0718" is asked by Kirk where the damage is. He responds by saying "Major hull damage, captain." It is a nonsensical response. It is obvious that the hull is damaged. The character doesn't say where. See more »

Not as good as the first, but still great!
The previous Star Trek movie is a tough one to beat. It was (in my eyes) close to perfection (lens flares and all). So this movie had a tough up-hill battle ahead of it. I am happy to report that the writing, direction, cinematography and acting were all terrific. But it's not quite flawless. There are a couple of minor plot holes that distract viewer attention to some degree.
Cumberbatch is brilliant. I won't divulge any spoilers, but I will say that the throw back to the earlier movies is very very clever and well executed. The added depth we see in the characters of Kirk and Spock are icing on an already delicious cake!
