Product Description

Product Description

The evil Khan, marooned on a planet, takes over a space ship and pursues his arch enemy, Captain Kirk and the Enterprise.

From Amazon.co.uk

Inspired by the "Space Seed" episode of the original series, the classic swashbuckling scenario of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was much more of a success with fans than the somewhat turgid drama of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. 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 humour, excitement, and wondrous imagination. Director Nicholas Meyer (who would play a substantial role in the success of future Trek features) treats the film as "Horatio Hornblower in space", and then adds lots of spicy seafaring Moby Dick references, plus a sprinkle of Shakespearean tragedy and World War II submarine thriller, all driven along by one of composer James Horner's finest scores. Wrath of Khan set the successful tone for the films that followed. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

Format: DVD
The Wrath of Khan is the favorite Trek film of many fans (myself included) and after the wonderful job that was done on the directors edition of The Motion Picture, I was looking forward to the ultimate Trek Directors Edition. Well........
It's not quite there. The DVD is packaged in the same way and The Motion Picture and has the same kind of layout. Thought and attention has gone into the animated menus, with diferent animation being offered on each of the two disks.
The fist disk contains the feature and as before offers an audio commentary by Nick Meyer (Director) and text commentary again provided by Michael Okuda. As it is just Nick Meyer on the audio, there is something lacking from the commentary. On the Motion Picture we had input from four angles (Director, Actor, Special Effects...), but here we have a single point of view from someone who is not the most exciting of speakers.
On the second disk there are some great documentarys with new content shot just for this release in addition to the original interviews from 1982 when the film was first shown. Also here are the storyboard archives we have come to expect, but missing is one of the features that was so good about the Directors Edition of The Motion Picture. There are no comparisons between the original release and this edition. There are not even any deleted scenes.
And this is where the problem lies. The Motion Picture was always seen as a flawed masterpiece, and the Directors Edition gave Bob Wise the chance to go back and do what he didn't have time to complete before. With Wrath of Khan, it was already a fine movie. There have been no special effects touch ups, no added CGI just the insertion of a few additional lines of dialogue here and there.

I love this film. It stands out as one of the best ST movies, well paced, well acted and with some beautiful special effects. The Wrath of Khan, however, pales next to my annoyance at the poor quality of this DVD, which seems to have taken forever to be released.
The picture quality is hardly better than VHS in places, whilst the sound is often decidedly ropey. Why do Star Trek fans have to tolerate such poor releases of their favourite films? Don't even ask about extra features - one trailer does not go a long way towards justifying the extra cost of buying the movie in DVD format.
I should be giving this film five stars - as a movie it deserves them - but the DVD transfer is so poor that it has to be three.

With the release of the rebooted second Star Trek film, Star Trek : something ominous i was so disappointed and confused by whole affair i needed to cleanse my film viewing palate with this classic and still the best Star Trek film in the series. Even though i have never seen a full episode of the original series and would not call my self a trekkie by any stretch of the imagination i feel qualified as a general film lover to make these statements.
Plot simple and based on relatable human emotions
Characters deep enough to care about but with out the need to labour a set feature or quirk to define them
Chekhov's gun held to the very last minute in neat move to play into the next film
The effects are dated but its like home cooking at your parents, its not about the quality of the food its about entire experience
Dialogue, perfectly paced for emotion and plot the entire way through the film

The steelbook is ok. If you are put off by thinking it has a yellow border, it looks yellow on my monitor, well it isn't. It's a much darker gold colour with quite a nice metallic look to it. The whole thing is darker than it looks, the image on the front is pretty blurry and not very sharp. The title (but not the 50th anniversary banner) is erm debossed?? Whatever the opposite of embossed is! Like i say, the steelbook is ok. Bit underwhelming but not bad. The large downside being the spine is designed to match the rest of the steelbooks. Unless you get them all, it doesn't look too good. I suppose i knocked a star off because there really isn't much need to buy them all. This includes BOTH the theatrical cut and director's cut, but all the others are just the exact same release as most people already have. If these were released ages ago, before about 5 other identical releases, it would be a much better product purely because you would actually be buying the movies. Now everybody already owns the movies on blu ray, apart from this one where you do at least get the director's cut, you are paying £15 a go just for the packaging! Even the first movie doesn't even include the directors cut. Buying 9 other steelbooks for movies you already own, which have no new special features or anything else, just to make the spine of this one match, probably isn't something many people will want to do. So a star knocked off for the majority of people who will be stuck with a weird looking spine on their shelf!

The best Star Trek movie from the Original cast. Ricardo Montalban is superb as the vengeful Khan; quoting Captain Ahab in the final battle "From hell's heart I stab at thee, for hates sake I spit my last breath at thee.." Fantastic movie that gives you feel for the mania created by years of obsessive, festering hate. With Spock giving us the counterpoint of self sacrifice for the good of the many, over the needs of "the few or the one".
