Product Description

Although Star Trek: The Motion Picture had been a box-office hit, it was by no means a unanimous success with Star Trek fans, who responded much more favorably to the "classic Trek" scenario of Star 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-based Trek that 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 future Trek features) handles the film as a combination of Moby Dick, Shakespearean tragedy, World War II submarine thriller, and dazzling science fiction, setting the successful tone for the Trek films that followed. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars For special effects, this is your movie! April 27 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Having seen this movie countless times, I believe that II is the best example of the kind of Star Trek special effects we remember from the original series. You get the sense of camaraderie you remember from the series and has the best special effects of any film until "Generations".

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A MOVIE! Jan. 17 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I agree with the previous reviews. 5 STARS it was a great movie, that I already own, along with all the other 7 VHS releases. My favorite part is when they are in that nebula, and can't see each other, making a lot like a WWII sub battle. I am a Die hard trekkie, and am interested in any ST collectibles people are willing to sell them.

Format:VHS Tape
It is one of the best sci - fi films ever. But what makes this film so suppierier to many of the other films is the fact that its ending is very supprising and the last thing that you would think would happen

5.0 out of 5 stars This Movie Rocks The House! Dec 4 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is "edge of your seat" entertainment! I loved it from beginning to end. Ricardo Montalban did a great performance, as well as all the other characters. I am 100% Star Trek Fan and always will be! This movie comes close to being as good as "The Voyage Home". "The Voyage Home" is a comedy all the way...but if you like action packed suspence,emotional, videos..buy this one today! I guarantee you won't regret it! So what are you waiting for??

5.0 out of 5 stars The only best Star Trek movie Sept. 1 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I am 20% Star Trek fan. I know all the characters and thats all I need to know. The movie, books, comic books, etc suck except this movie. There not just acting like a bunch of stiffs in space like the other films, there going after a pycho with lots action and so on. This is the only Star Trek movie you need to own. END

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC FILM July 13 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is wonderful,it is just like watching a TV episode.The idea of going past all 78 episodes until Harve B. found "Space Seed" to base a movie on was a masterful idea.This film even works without all that was cut out of it before it was shown (You may want to hunt down the whole thing however, shown only on ABC TV).A great action film with true STAR TREK fan content. END

5.0 out of 5 stars 'The Wrath of Khan' A Magnificent Masterpiece Oct. 5 2002
Format:DVD
Though THE MOTION PICTURE began the Trek movie endeavors, it was STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN that really brought out the best for Trek fans everywhere. With magnificent battles, thrilling special effects, and the superb acting of Ricardo Montablan, THE WRATH OF KHAN is a thrill-ride from start to finish. I also liked seeing Kirstey Alley as Lt. Saavik, and she does a surprisingly nice job as the curious and charming Saavik. And Berritt Mutrick does a splendid job as the son of Kirk.
THE WRATH OF KHAN deals with the story of Khan's return, and his plans to snag his hands on the Genesis Project for his own deadly plans, and when he hijacks the USS Reliant and its crew, Kirk and the crew must stop him before it's too late. The battle scenes, especially in the Motara Nebula, are brilliant, and well done. You'll find yourself satisfied after you watch this movie, and left with a feeling that it got more than just it's job done for all the Trek fans.
THE WRATH OF KHAN also concludes with the "temporary" death of Spock, who gave his marbles to McCoy so that it would be possible to revive him in the next movie, THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK. Exhilirating, fast-paced, and with great savvy intelligence, this is one Trek you'll want to watch again and again! Highly recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars i think it's a better than number one Aug. 16 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
i think this movie is a bit better than the first one.it starts off better,with some action right off the bat.it slows down somewhat not long after,but it's not as boring as number one.i think it is better paced,and i feel it is also is written better.the dialogue is more interesting.there is more of a story to this one,and the villain is pretty well defined.there is a bit of suspense and excitement in this one,which i found lacking in the first one.also the characters are given much more to do in this one.i do think the last 30 minutes or so kind of drag though.even though this one is better than the first,there is certainly room for improvement,in my view.its' still not that great.i'll give Star Trek 2:The wrath of Khan:3/5
