The Best Trek!By John-James Worrall from Warrington , 06 Nov 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]KHAAAAN!
The second Trek installment went back to the Original Series and took the best elements, mixed them in with a good budget, fine story and top class direction. The result the best Trek movie ever.
The directors edition of this is a little redundant. There are a few little interesting aditions, but it is most notable fo rthe ommision of the confirmations of Savikks half Romulan parentage (showing that Kirsty Alley was not a poor actress by showing an emotional vulcan). The scene exists as any quick search on Google will get you an MPEG of Kirk and Spock discussing this after the Simulator exercise.
Mayers commentary is hard work to listen to. He's not exactly the captivating of speakers. But in the end who cares. Ricardo Montalban plays the ultimate adversary for Kirk and dominates every scene he is in. Shatner presents a more mature Kirk than in even later movies and the cast work well.
By far the best paced, most entertaining Trek movie. Enjoyable even for non-Trekkers.

The best after ContactBy a customer from sitting on the sofa , 03 Oct 2006I just love this film
great star trekkingBy sad trekkie from bexhill , 03 Oct 2006I just love this filem and could watch it over and over again
Possibly the best of the Star Trek filmsBy a customer from Wirral, England , 21 Aug 2006This vies with Star Trek IV for the best original cast movie (although VI has a lot going for it too!)
A cracking plot (following on from the Star Trek Series 1 story 'Space Seed') about revenge and the madness it drives people to. Even though the protagonists (Khan & Kirk) never get to meet face-to-face the performances of Ricardo Montalban and William Shatner are very good - you can believe the hatred Khan has for Kirk. The space battle effects are very very good too for the year it was made. They still stand up now. It made a star of Kirsty Alley (briefly!) and ensured a further eight Trek movies got made after the disaster that was Star Trek: The Motion Picture. According to Trek lore - even number pictures are good, odd numbered ones are less good (and in the case of Star Trek V - a stinker!)
The ending of this is genuinely moving - a terrific performance from Leonard Nimoy.
KHAN!!!!By Kevin from Birmingham, England , 17 Aug 2006Quite possibly the finest of the movies staring the original cast. Wrath Of Khan has superb tense space battles and Ricardo Montalban is excellent as Kirk's nemisis. Highly recommended
Better than the Motion picture-worth seeingBy Cjm1975 (161 reviews) from Wolverhampton , 07 Aug 2006I enjoyed this much more than the Motion Picture. Khan was a great enemy and there are some great emotional performances from both William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. This film doesn't entirely have the usual completely happy ending, but it does leave it open for the sequel. If you're a Star Trek fan many believe this to be the definitive movie. Whilst not excellent it's worth seeing.
