STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN (Theatrical Release USA 1982)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
—a little better than the previous film—has more storyline and higher level of acting. The downside? The conclusion contains a shocking and unwanted twist that makes one wonder how the rest of the franchise will be affected. Ricardo Montalban’s character is not appealing and Kirstie Alley’s strong personality, as always, does not easily sublimate itself into a different character very well. The next movie in the series is Star Trek III: The Search for Spock where, hopefully, the concluding scenes of this film will be rectified. Overall, Star Trek fans will not be disappointed and most likely will enjoy this film.
