What movie would be complete without an incredible villain? In Khan, Ricardo Montalban created a villain of legendary proportions.

Although I liked the special effects in the first movie, they were probably not the point; fans of the TV series wanted to see their favorite characters again, and Trek II understood that desire and acted on it.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan works as both a science fiction adventure story and as a thematically rich drama.

Ricardo Montalban plays the badass Khan in one of the most commanding performances of his career.

Has everything you could ask for in a good sci‑fi action-adventure: well-drawn heroes, a terrific villain, exciting outer-space showdowns… and a touch of reflective depth.

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.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is a movie that transcends it's genre, it's format, it's fan base to really get inside the hearts and heads of people across all barriers the world over. This is the way to make Star Trek movies RIGHT.

The best of the Star Trek film series, a gloriously operatic revenge tale full of sound and fury, violence and vengeance, humor and empathy.

This movie feels like an extended episode of the television series, and is a success because of it.

The plot is a tad stronger and the characters not overshadowed by spectacular special effects (like in the first film).

Star Trek II added hefty doses of action, adventure, and suspense, injecting life into a concept that had been left moribund by its first big-screen feature.
