I'm not nuts about looking into all that **** but it's hard to avoid because there's SO little news about the movie for SUCH a long time, the **** fans gravitate to stuff like that.

Honestly, I think that the movie would have been stronger if the villain WASN'T Khan but just a ridiculously smart Hans Gruber type who had a legitimate beef with the Federation.  They literally made it Khan because they realized they could.

Oh, and my BIGGEST beef with the movie: you CAN'T CALL SOMEONE TO GET THE ANSWERS!  They got away with it ONCE because it was a time-travel thing and even though I wasn't nuts about it, it still made sense.  You can't do that again!  That's such lazy storytelling!  There's so much lazy storytelling going on in this movie, Kirk is demoted but gets his ship back in FIVE minutes and it doesn't affect ANYTHING in the story?  THEN WHY PUT THAT IN!?  Why do the first ten minutes of the movie have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE REST OF THE STORY!?  You could LITERALLY start with the explosion and lose nothing.

I've seen Alice Eve in less in other movies... but it IS out of place.  I wouldn't have complained if it was in a decontamination scene or something like that... or if her character was actually scheming or trying to seduce Kirk, but she wasn't (I honestly felt like Carol was going to be the anti-Spock but they never got around to writing that).
