I was so pleased Scotty got more to do in this movie! He was great. I agree that the Khan thing was pointless. For some reason, the fact that there were other frozen people to get blood from did not occur to me at all until someone pointed it out! In fact, neither did the question of how they got the Enterprise underwater without anyone noticing. Maybe they did it... at night? While all the aliens were... busy? I did wonder about further applications of Khan's blood, though, even though no one in the movie did!

I also saw Kirk's resurrection coming! But I did enjoy Spock having ~emotions (Spock is my favorite). I thought Benedict was excellent. And they so should have left the shower scene in!

I can come up with a possible explanation for getting the Enterprise underwater but it is tough. If the planet is big enough that there is a place far enough away from any populated land to enter the atmosphere and descend toward the surface without anyone spotting an unexplained comet, then they could have gotten to the surface and entered the water from the middle of the ocean and traveled underwater. Maybe. That's a very big IF though (the Enterprise would be visible from a VERY long way away) and I'm not convinced the ship could really travel under water for long and that far given that she isn't exactly aerodynamic (hydrodynamic?).

Spock's moment of "So many feels!" to put it in fan speak, was kind of awesome. Though thinking through all that to the end just reminded me of another question I had: why did Uhura's gun not work at stunning Khan when Scotty's had?

Overall, I'd agree Cumberbatch did a great job. There was one scene where I found his acting a bit distracting and a bit too much obviously acting, but it was just for a bit and otherwise I very much enjoyed him in the role.
