All of the failings of Star Trek: The Motion Picture were erased with The Wrath of Khan. Even the uniforms are cooler. While The Motion Picture took place (in Star Trek time) only a few years after the conclusion of Captain Kirk's first five-year mission, this sequel takes place much further along in the future. James Kirk and his crew have concluded a second five-year mission, and Kirk is back in an admiral's post. The film begins with the Enterprise being destroyed in a conflict with …

STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN. I remember it well. Despite the predominantly youthful audience, you could still hear a pin drop during Spock's death scene. The film works so well on so many levels but the single greatest reason STII is revered by so many Trek enthusiasts worldwide is b/c it is, perhaps, the only Trek film to celebrate the passion of life and death so poignantly. If you haven't seen it, do so ... even if you're not of the Trek variety.

Who says that rebooting tranchises is a new idea? In a real sense, this is a reboot of the first Star Trek film, and it starts a trilogy of perhaps the best of the Star Trek films.

Take a classic television series with a dedicated fanbase, insert one of its most popular villains and toss a major motion picture budget at it and what do you get: "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan." Perhaps the closest film in the "Star Trek" catalogue to the original televison series, "Khan" finds Kirk as the admiral in charge of assessing a green crew on routine training maneuvers. They happen to be aboard his old ship, the Enterprise, and the crew includes most of his key past crewmates. In …

It has been forever since I've watched this, but it has some vividly memorable scenes

Khan escapes being deserted and wants Kirks blood. Fantastic story and action of old age and sacrifice. No wonder it's seen as the best.

Ricardo Montalban as Khan, genetic madman
Why?  Because these two men saved Star Trek from what even Leonard Nimoy called and I quote, "A Beached Whale."      Star Trek: The Motion Picture for all intents and purposes only made it's money cause it was feeding a starving audience.  10 years after the original show wrapped up and a few years after the animated show ended.  People wanted a Star Trek fix and they got it, paid money to see it and well...  if you've seen the movie you know what …

Kirk grapples with getting old and an old foe returns for vengance. Great action and a nice touch of the old Star Trek show.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Blu-ray
I think everybody agrees that along with Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is the best of the now eleven Trek films.  However, it comes very short on the Blu-ray addition.  Unlike the rest of the films in this set, Khan is supposed to be fully restored in HD instead of remastered like the others, but what you get is a disc that looks like it belongs with your old DVD's.    In Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, we see Kirk going through what seems …

About this movie

Wiki

AlthoughStar Trek: The Motion Picturehad been a box-office hit, it was by no means a unanimous success withStar Trekfans, who responded much more favorably to the "classicTrek" scenario ofStar Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Inspired by the "Space Seed" episode of the original TV series, the film reunites newly promoted Admiral Kirk with his nemesis from the earlier episode--the genetically superior Khan (Ricardo Montalban)--who is now seeking revenge upon Kirk for having been imprisoned on a desolated planet. Their battle ensues over control of the Genesis device, a top-secret Starfleet project enabling entire planets to be transformed into life-supporting worlds, pioneered by the mother (Bibi Besch) of Kirk's estranged and now-adult son. While Mr. Spock mentors the young Vulcan Lt. Saavik (then-newcomer Kirstie Alley), Kirk must battle Khan to the bitter end, through a climactic starship chase and an unexpected crisis that will cost the life of Kirk's closest friend. This was the kind of character-basedTrekthat fans were waiting for, boosted by spectacular special effects, a great villain (thanks to Montalban's splendidly melodramatic performance), and a deft combination of humor, excitement, and wondrous imagination. Director Nicholas Meyer (who would play a substantial role in the success of futureTrekfeatures) handles the film as a combination ofMoby Dick, Shakespearean tragedy, World War II submarine thriller, and dazzling science fiction, ...
