Great Trek, so-so visualsIf you like Star Trek, you'll like this movie. If you like Sci-Fi you'll like this movie. Enough said. The only reason this film (back then) and today doesn't get a perfect score is because of the special effects and generally the visuals. It has not held up anywhere near as well as Blade Runner or The Thing which both came out the same year..Score: 4/5
Best movie everThis movie is awesome it is one of the coolest Star Trek movies but I was so 😭 when Spock died but it was still epic but one thing I don’t get is why didn’t they take Spock back to his home planet and bury him instead shooting him out in space.Score: 4/5
The Wrath Of KrapOkay, in 1982 the movie was pretty darned good. But in 1982, there was hadly anything worth watching. As the Trek films kept rolling out, this one - for unknown reasons - remained a classic or one of the best or even the best. I'm so tired of the cry baby trekkies who favor this film in lieu of the other far superior ones (i.e. any of the TNG films). This is one of the worst films. There simply isn't anything clever here, nor anything that hasn't been done before this time. If there were any true Trekkers out there - this film would have been picked apart by the lack of continuity this film represents. This film has bad special effects, dialogue and even plot point movement. The only thing this has was a couple of quotes, I'll give it that..Score: 1/5
Not bad, for the Original SeriesI was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Although I am a huge Star Trek fan, I like the later casts better, and the special effects of the '80s were not very good compared to the '90s. But this movie actually had decent effects for its time. As for the story itself, I thought it was an excellent expansion into the ugly Eugenics War and the Khan storyline from "Space Seed." I was very impressed by it all. However, I'm not a huge fan of the original cast, so I was somewhat bored..Score: 4/5
Paradox and Greek TragedyI have, since becoming a faithful Trekkie/Trekker/all-around Original Series Trek fan, discovered why this movie is so paradoxial. It's got a wonderful plot line and can, unlike most if not all other Trek films, stand on its own. However, it is also, the paradox. To many fans of the Original Series and thus, the original crew, it's perhaps abhorrant, wrong even, to think of Spock being killed. It is also, a story that combines human fault with human triumph. However, it was one of the most powerful things ever performed. If it's strong enough to have the actors shaken up after viewing their own work, you know it's one to endure. It doesn't need the flashy lights and glitz. It doesn't need massive effects. It has all it needs: Astounding actors, a well-wrought story and a classic Greek-style tragedy to put Homer to tears. Absolutely an amazing piece of work that even a non-Trekkie can thoroughly enjoy..Score: 5/5

It is very cold in spaceI've been a Star Trek fan since I saw the movie back when it came out in 1982,I was only a year old,but I really got into it.Like father,like daughter and like how Star Wars was to him back in 1977,that's how ST2 was to me.That scene when the Enterprise left the spacedock(which was way better in this then in the first Trek movie)was like the stardestoryer comming out of the side of the screen in Star Wars.ST2 is a sequel(or kind of)of an episode of the original series called Space Seed,with the character of Khan(played wonderfully by Ricardo Montalban)stealing the USS Reliant,to find and destory Kirk for what he did 15 years earlier.ST2 is a very beautifully made picture which outdoes the first Trek movie.One of my favourite scenes is the first battle between the Reliant and our beloved Enterprise.I believe it was the energtic and beautiful score by James Horner,brillient characters and a great story to go with it makes ST2 The Wrath Of Khan not only one of the best of the Star Trek movies but one of the best sci-fi films ever made.All the even numbered Trek flims are the best..Score: 5/5
Perhaps the best trek film...Excellent movie.... I say perhaps the best because I enjoy VI almost as much but this film set the bar for Trek films and creates one of the best movie villans of all time. Montalban steals the show and creates a character that is pure evil yet subtly terrifying..Score: 5/5
