Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn (1982)

This was probably my first Star Trek movie, and as such is probably one my favorites.

It is hard to find anything wrong with this movie.  Ok, except for the fact that Kahn did not ever meet Chekov, but that's a moot point.  Really, if that is the one issue I have with the movie, than I need to get over it.

Everything is perfect with this movie.  Casting (well duh). Ricardo Montablan was bad ass as Kahn.  Of course he was also bad ass playing him in the Original Series.  This movie also introduces the hands down best uniforms in the entire Star Trek canon.

As far as the story, etc, this is one of the best written and shot movies I can think of.  Its not just a Star Trek movie, but a movie that can be enjoyed by any fan of sci-fi.  While having viewed the episode of TOS 'Space Seed' can help with some stuff, its not required viewing.

At the risk of starting to repeat myself, I'll just end this review with this quote from the movie:

'The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few.'


  1. A classic that I have not seen in ages will have to revisit this film and probably the whole series thanks for reminding me of it.

  2. Hey, not a problem. My pleasure. This is indeed a classic movie.
