I am a big fan of Benedict Cumberbatch and love his performances on Sherlock and Doctor Strange. That said, as talented as he is, his turn as Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness did not work for me. How can you try to recreate on of the greatest villains to grace the silver screen? Ricardo Montalban gave such an iconic performance that I can understand why Cumberbatch chose not to try an imitation, but the result was a character that bore very little resemblance to the classic Star Trek adversary. They should have just gone with an original villain.
