It's got high-energy and that feeling that you've seen it before! It's fun, but its repetitions are unnecessary. Benedict Cumberbatch didn't need to be Khan. He was perfectly fine being generic caucasian name. The reveal of his being Khan adds nothing but the desire to compare. Anyway. High-energy, like I say. Chris Pine is apt casting for Captain Kirk because he's growing up to have the same Shatner-esque bloat-face.
