Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

On the DVD commentary track, Nicholas Meyer discusses his directing philosophy, how he scrimped to stay under budget (Wrath of Khan was the cheapest Star Trek film), and his nautical approach to Trek, but he doesn't dissect all the various bits of footage (only a few minutes total, with the most substantial change explaining Midshipman 1st Class Peter Preston's connection to Commander Scott) that went into the director's cut DVD. For those kinds of technical details and trivia, switch on the subtitled commentary track by Michael Okuda (who cowrote The Star Trek Encyclopedia and did the same honors on the Star Trek: The Motion Picture DVD). Disc 2 offers substantial featurettes on how the story developed and how the costumes, ships, and sets were designed, highlighted by new interviews of Meyer, producer-writer Harve Bennett, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, and Ricardo Montalban. There are also 8 minutes of 1982 interviews, 13 storyboard archives, and a feature that might seem like a 27-minute commercial for Star Trek books, but is actually an interesting and lighthearted look at how novelists create the back story for such topics as the Kobayashi Maru test and the Eugenics Wars, which feature prominently in Khan. --David Horiuchi

Product Description

In Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, it is the 23rd century and aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise, Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) seems resigned to the fact that this may well be his last space mission. But Khan (Ricardo Montalban), a brilliant renegade of 20th century Earth, is back, and now schemes to set a most deadly trap for this old enemy Kirk - with the threat of universal Armageddon. The Director's Cut 2-Disc Edition includes commentaries, interviews, featurettes, and more.

Format:DVD
I just bought this DVD..., and the verdict is in: It's a blast!!!
THE MOVIE: Certanily one of the best Star Trek movies. Although the main plot about revenge is a bit too basic, the sub-plots, including the addition of Kirk's ex-wife and son, makes the movie better. The action is well paced and the special effects are marevelous. Also, the "expanded director's edition" featured on this DVD adds about 5 extra minutes to the movie. The added footage does little to help the plot, but does a great deal to flesh out more of the minor characters, such as Kirk's son and Lt. Saavik. Also, the last 15 minutes of the film (some added dialogue was put in there to have a little bit more emotional impact at the end of the film) made me jump the grade of the film from a "B" to an "A+."
THE DVD: In addition to having a crisp, clear picture transfer of the film with oustanding sound, the first disc has a nice audio commentary from the director and an even nicer text commentary from Michael Okuda, co-author of the Star Trek Encyclopedia. (That guy knows EVERY SINGLE LITTLE DETAIL THAT OTHER PEOPLE WOULD NOT EVEN KNOW A THING ABOUT that regards to Star Trek.) The second disc contains the following:
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well, I think it looks good... December 5, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
I'm relatively new to the whole Blu-ray thing; indeed, I resisted buying a Blu-ray player for a long time because I imagined that older movies (e.g., Wrath of Khan) would look grainy and dated in this format, which mercilessly exposes the flaws in older film prints.

So I was pleasantly surprised when "Wrath of Khan" ended up looking, to me, rather good on Blu-ray. It's by no means a perfect print; for example, there's usually some fuzz (or whatever the technical term is) visible on scenes with dark lighting, such as when the Enterprise bridge goes to red alert. But by and large, this print is much nicer than the previous DVD versions.

I compared some DVD scenes to Blu-ray ones to determine whether the upgrade was worth it, and I think it was. Check out the scene when Spock gives Kirk his birthday present; on Blu-ray, you can see all the fine details on that giant globe they're standing next to, whereas on the DVD print it just looks like some glass blob. Similarly, the nebula scenes look much clearer on the Blu-ray.

Some fans seem annoyed that "digital noise reduction" has been applied to the Star Trek movies. Again, I'm no technical expert, but I believe this means that the artifacting/fuzz/whatever-you-call-it has been digitally "painted out" to give the film a cleaner look. This has led some fans to complain that the ST films now look artificially painted over, or waxy, or whatever. I sympathize with this complaint, but I think there's a tough choice to be made here; either studios can digitally "paint out" flaws, resulting in a slightly artificial look, or they can leave the flaws in, resulting in a distracting grainy look.

5.0 out of 5 stars The royal treatment comes to the most famous TREK film August 27, 2002
Format:DVD
In the wake of Robert Wise's "director's edition" of STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, it was only a matter of time before Nicholas Meyer's STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN was awarded the same treatment. Half a year later, KHAN does indeed get the royal treatment with a 2-disc set loaded with extras and fan tidbits galore. The package includes a slightly extended "director's cut" of KHAN that restores a critical plot point (namely, the young cadet who dies in Scotty's arms is actually Scotty's nephew) and a few brief clippings of dialogue (mostly back-and-forth exchanges among the main cast); a commentary by Meyer in which he discusses both the film and his approaches to filmmaking; a text commentary by STAR TREK's long-time technical point man Michael Okuda that's packed with more fanboy knowledge than a game of Trivial Pursuit; cast interviews from 1982 (in which Leonard Nimoy wears a pink and white striped suit that makes him look like a pimp); three documentaries covering the making of the film; "A Novel Approach," a documentary where TREK authors Julia Ecklar and Greg Cox discuss how KHAN's plot elements spun off into the TREK novels; the film's FX storyboards; and of course, the theatrical trailer. Let's look at each of these:
THE DIRECTOR'S CUT OF KHAN - the film makes a bit more sense now that the scenes establishing the doomed cadet as Scotty's nephew have been restored, and the restored dialogue adds a little extra kick to the proceedings (it's especially funny to hear Spock respond to Kirk's telling him about his son with a disinterested "Fascinating").

I don't get it...
I guess that places you in the minority opinion on this one. Sorry :)
