Okay so last weekend I went to see the latest Star Trek. Mostly I just wanted to have a good time with some escapist entertainment (and my wife is a notorious sci-fi fan). But before I went in I was warned by Breitbart’s Christian Toto that it was an anti-Bush or anti-war-on-terror movie. And then I saw it and realized, intentionally or not, the movie actually ended up playing as a vindication of Bush’s approach to the War on Terror.
So maybe it is as simple as that Abrams doesn’t want to kill Khan because he wants him back for a sequel, so Kirk and Spock decide not to try to kill him although they had multiple chances to do so. That decision causes lots of death and destruction because it would be a boring movie if that kind of stuff didn’t happen, and by accident Abrams and company make us wonder why Kirk didn’t just kill him when he got the chance just as you wonder why Batman (or at least the government of whatever state Gotham is in) doesn’t just finally kill Joker.
(Please note, I also altered some of the text below mainly to make it clearly and to improve grammar.)
