It was effectively staged (though somewhat less so, I thought, than in Trek '09), but the similarity was strong enough that it detracted a bit from my immersion and emotional involvement in this case.
Ya in that context it was very similar. Hemsworth emoted so much more deeply in his scene though IMO.
