About the Movie
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is fondly regarded as being the closest in spirit to the 1966-69 TV series that spawned it. Admiral Kirk (William Shatner) escapes the tedium of a desk job to join Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (DeForest Kelley) on another space mission. While boldly going where no man etc. etc., Kirk crosses the path of his old enemy Khan (Ricardo Montalban), who as any die-hard Trekker can tell you, was the chief antagonist in the 1966 Trek TV episode "Space Seed." Leading a crew of near-savage space prisoners, Khan insinuates himself into the Genesis Project, which is designed to introduce living organisms on long-dead planets. Intending to harness this program for his own despotic purposes, Khan engages in battle with the Enterprise crew.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Here comes a sequel that's worth its salt. The second Star Trek movie is swift, droll and adventurous, not to mention appealingly gadget-happy. It's everything the first one should have been and wasn't.
Fresh: There is something comfortable, even old-shoeish, about the new film, a sense, appropriate to its theme of coming to terms with middle age, that all aboard are pleasurably rediscovering their best selves.
Fresh: Star Trek II is a very satisfying space adventure, closer in spirit and format to the popular TV series than to its big-budget predecessor.
Fresh: A brisk, handsomely designed film in which its hardware, sturdy as it is, never overwhelms its humanity.
Best of the Treks
Hands down the best Star Trek movie. After the very non-violent (to the point of borefom) Star Trek : The Motion Picture, we jump back into a movie which better captures the feel of the original show. From exciting space battles, to the touching self sacrafice of Spock, this movie pushes all the right buttons.
Best Movie EVER!!!
ST:II is better than Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and all other sci-fi/fantasy movies, this movie is a must buy.
The best of the early star trek movies hands down, and arbuably the best of all the star trek films. Great drama, and a great movie experience. I remember as a kid watching this in the theater and people actually left due to a particular scene involving parasitic mind control. All the actors bring thier A game on this film. If you have never watched it, pop up some popcorn, plug it in and enjoy!!
