The movie Into The Darkness is a travesty of the Trek Legacy -
Khan is a slim white boy? This is a kick in the face to Star Trek fans!!! WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?
As a girl growing up - Ricardo Montalbán was the object of dreamy affections. I'm sure there were many of us. His appearance in The original Star Trek series (STOS) was when I first saw him and when he returned in his masterful performance in Wrath of Khan - he made the movie!
I can't believe with all the care and thought that went into casting the current Star Trek crew - they picked Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan? I think he's great in Sherlock - but as Khan? Are you kidding me?
How about Javier Bardem - he would have been fabulous!
Khan wasn't just a a vicious terrorist - he was a charismatic leader of his people. Cumberbatch's Khan is a one dimensional terrorist and lacked the alluring charm and veiled threat that Ricardo brought to the role.
The movie was great - until Benedict says "I am KHAN"! WHAT?
After a Scooby Doo moment - the movie lost me and started to make me mad.
They've lost a fan and gained a pissed off chick!
