    After watching into darkness, then coming back to this I pleasantly enjoyed every minute.

    It actually drags you in with the in depth emotions and story instead of pure action like more recent films.

    It's been a really long time since I last saw this, but I do remember enjoying it immensely. Like before it improves on everything from the last movie and even Shatner's "acting" is tolerable, mostly. However this time round it has an actual plot, story and also adding allot to the Star Trek universe's lore.

    Overall:
    A great addition to the series, that does look a little dated by
    today's standards, but even so still isn't bad and does a good job delivering its story. Not to mention one of the saddest endings ever (at the time.) Expand

    Honestly, this movie wasn't great. Most of the acting is unwatchabley bad. Some of the set up was boreing. The only good part was when khan's ship was tearing up the enterprise.

    It's a tale told with considerable warmth and humour, some spiffing explosions and a multiple-hanky act of self-sacrifice to round things off.

    This is hands-down the best Trek flick made so far.

    Star Trek II is a very satisfying space adventure, closer in spirit and format to the popular TV series than to its big-budget predecessor.
