It's a great movie ! Its able to incorporate all elements of what makes Trek good and also brings in some new too. This story incorporates the idea of 'Sacrifice' quite well. Hence references to Tale of Two cities novel. A great villain Khan in the movie, which strikes Captain Ahab from Moby Dick. This is classic Sci-Fi at its best and Star Trek at its finest. Tight action scenes truly gives this movie a edge over big-budget movies.
