Sound could have been better, otherwise a Classic Sci-Fi Film!
I remember seeing this film in the theatre in 1982 when it first came out. My friends and I absolutely loved it! Now over 30 years later I wanted my own copy, especially now since I just hooked up my home theater with surround sound. The film is just as exciting now as it was then but I am a little disappointed with the sound - it is Dolby Digital, not surround sound. I also have The Empire Strikes Back on DVD and it is formatted in 5.1 surround sound which sounds MUCH better than ST 2. That's why it only gets 4 stars and not 5. Disc 1 has the movie and disc 2 has special features including interviews with the cast (Ricardo Montalban is the best!), a video piece on designing Kahn, visual effects and the original theatrical trailer. I think the second disc would have been a lot better if they included the original Star Trek episode Space Seed which this movie is based on. Otherwise this 2-disc set will be a fine addition to your sci-fi collection.Read full review

Admiral Kirk wins again...
This brought back great memories. I saw this for the first time in 1982 and really liked it. I was recently channel surfing, unable to find it and thought...why not buy a dvd from Ebay.
Ricard Montalban plays a true villain...the bitter chemistry between Captain Kirk and Khan is worth watching. The ending is a breath holding, spine tingling chapter to another win for the Enterprise.
I am really happy with this purchase...and it came with extra features at a very good price...

Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan DVD 2002 Director's Cut
"Ah, Kirk, my old friend... do you know the old Klingon proverb that says revenge is a dish that is best served cold? It is very cold... in space."
If there's one important thing to know about drama and conflict, it's that great heroes require great villains. And there has been no better villain, in any incarnation of Star Trek, than Khan. Engineered for super intelligence and strength, he's almost impossible to beat. As played by Ricardo Montalban, he's brooding, sly, witty and extremely dangerous. Whatever else you think of Montalban ("Ah yes, Tatoo..."), he's simply amazing here. And William Shatner gives what I think is his best performance in this film as Kirk, matching Khan round for round, and blow for blow.
In short, unlike the first movie this one feels like Star Trek. If The Motion Picture was a shot glass of Robitussin, Wrath of Khan is a Bombay Sapphire gin & tonic chilled just so with a slice of lime.
What makes this a "Director's Edition"? This version is the extended cut similar (but not identical) to the version that aired on ABC-TV several years ago. Only a few minutes' worth of new footage is noticeable, and while none of it changes any fundamentals, it's good to have the facts about Scotty's nephew back again, and some scenes are extended in ways that add to their content in appreciable ways. Further, the truly devoted Khan aficionado will notice a number of scenes that have always been there but are now present as different takes — subtle differences in line delivery or blocking or camera angles will keep hardcore groupies leaning forward on the sofa. On the commentary track, Meyer states that this is his preferred final cut of the film.
The Wrath of Khan features two the best starship designs ever in Star Trek's illustrious history. The Constitution Class Refit Starship Enterprise and the Miranda Class Starship Reliant (which looks like a stripped down version of the heavy cruiser with a rollbar that just screams hot rod in space).
Until the Blu-Ray version of this fantastic movie is released, this is the definitive Star Trek movie to own with many, many extras on a second disc.
1) The Captain's Log: A 27-minute documentary featuring brand new interviews with Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, director Nicholas Meyer, Ricardo Montalban, and others. They talk about how they originally intended to put the film together, how they eventually ended up completing that task, and other things.
2) Designing Khan: A 23-minute documentary that features interviews with director Nicholas Meyers, the costume designer, and the production designer. They discuss the transitions they made in costume and production design from the ST:TMP to ST2:TWOK.
3) Visual Effects: An 18-minute featurette that has interviews with the FX crew. They explain how they executed and completed the FX shots. (Big surprise there)
4) The Star Trek Universe: A 28-minute documetary that features interviews with two Star Trek novel writers. They discuss how they fill in the gaps between the movies with their books and where they get their ideas.
5) Original Interviews: Basically 10 minutes of interviews (from 1982) featuring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Ricardo Montalban, and Deforest Kelley.
6) Archives: The archives feature 10 original storyboard sequences. (That sure beats the storyboard archives on the ST:TMP DVD, which features a mere 3 storyboard sequences.) There is also a thatrical trailer.
Argueably the best ST film ever.Read full review

Greatest Star Trek Movie of them all
If you only own one Star Trek movie this should be the one.
Contains the greatest acting of William Shatner's Star Trek career !!!
I call myself a Trekkie, but I didn't own any of the movies since converting to DVD, I put off buying all my VHS movies in DVD for finacial reasons, but I slowing started to buy certain movies in DVD again a few years ago & when it came down to buying my Star Trek movies again I decided to buy one to start ...
Well it was an easy decision to make ...
If you're going to show a non-trekkie one Star Trek movie this should be the one, it has all the original characters, it has action, phasers, fistfights & Star Ship combat !!! Plus all the scenes with Khan.
This is the best acting as Cpt. Kirk ever
I hope everyone enjoys this the greatest Star Trek Movie !!!Read full review

One of the BEST StR-TrK movies out there!!!
I would reccomend this movie to any one!! Star/Trek fan or not, its got every thing a great film needs to keep a person in thier seats!! Great Hero's, Fantastic Villan's and all three reels, yes, this one has a begining middle AND an ending, don't laugh, most movies just seem to lack these things and as a result suffer the lose of most of the production cost because of horrible endings, slow creepy beginings and just a total lack of plot in the middle some where, you know the ones I'm writing about! This movie is the most none fan friendly one of the six or so movies made about our loyal crew of NCC 1701...
Don't miss out, rent or buy today!!!
