Product Description

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (Widescreen Collec

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Often revered as the greatest star trek film of all time, The Wrath Of Khan does not disappoint. I don't want to spoil the plot for people who haven't seen this yet, so suffice it to say that Kirk takes the enterprise on a training mission, but meets an old foe. Phasers fly. Though not the directors cut, this edition does not dissapoint. The visuals are crisp and clear, and so is the sound. I recommend picking this one up. Plus, with free super saber shipping, you can pick up some of the other Trek movies.

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!

Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan is a welcome introduction of the Star Trek TV show to the movies. It is not a special effects bore of a movie, without any elements of what made the Star Trek TV show great. In other words, with Star Trek II, they got it right this time.
Instead of creating a movie that had little to do with Star Trek, this movie embraces the TV show as having plenty of interesting characters and material to use for this movie.
This story jumps right into the adventure. The USS Reliant has stumbled upon a life form on Ceti Alpha VI, which would disqualify it as a possible candidate for Project Genesis. Chekov and his captain beam down to the planet surface to find out what the life form is. It turns out to be Khan and surviving members of his family, left there originally by Captain Kirk in the Star Trek episode titled "Space Seed". Ceti Alpha VI, is actually Ceti Alpha V, which has been rendered an inhospitable world since Ceti Alpha VI disintegrated.
Khan is out for revenge, and he takes control of the USS Reliant and goes after the Enterprise. What made this movie great was that we finally get to actually see impressive computer graphics aboard the ships, instead of a blue light emitting from a view finder that Mr. Spock looked into occasionally on the TV series.
The look and and feel of this movie is very practical. In the director's commentary, Nicholas Meyer said that he saw Star Trek as the Adventures of Horatio Hornblower in Outer Space.
The ending is probably the most suspenseful of any Star Trek movie, or TV show for that matter. It was good to see that Star Trek finally got a movie treatment that it deserved.

"Now, this is more like it!"
So wrote film critic Janet Maslin in June of 1982 when Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan opened nationwide.
You see, even though millions of Star Trek fans had flocked to see Star Trek: The Motion Picture in December of 1979, the reaction was, shall we say, mixed. Oh, sure, fans were happy to see Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the rest of the crew back in action. Yes, the redesigned USS Enterprise was impressive, as were all the visuals. And that Jerry Goldsmith score was just fabulous.
Yet, for all that, Star Trek I was also a big letdown. And even though the attempt of the producers to make an intelligent, non-Star Wars science fiction story was laudable, the first of the 10 feature films did not fire up the imagination. Wags, according to David Gerrold in his book The World of Star Trek, dubbed it Star Trek: The Motionless Picture and Spockalypse Now.
However, Paramount's accountants and executives did see good, if not Star Wars-sized, box office rentals, and they decided to give the franchise another chance. So they called in Harve Bennett, a well-known television producer, and asked him to take over from Gene Roddenberry as executive producer for the next Star Trek feature film.
Bennett took a look at most of the 79 Star Trek television episodes, seeking the formula that would make a second Star Trek movie soar and take audiences where "no one had gone before." Yet, ironically, the concept Bennett and co-writer Jack Sowards came up with was to make a sequel not to the first film, but to an episode which aired in 1967 "Space Seed."
In another brilliant stroke, Nicholas Meyer was hired to direct. New to the Star Trek universe, Meyer decided to start over almost as if the first feature did not exist.
