Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan 
"Sta Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan" by Yojimbo
2/4 stars

Old genetically engineered adversary Khan reappears after being marooned on a desolate planet by captain Kirk 15 years previously to wreak bloody vengeance. The second big screen outing by Shatner and co was far more in the spirit of the original series than the slow moving but visually spectacular first film, and is widely regarded as the best Star Trek movie. I did not like the recent reinvention much as I found it to be a tacky exercise in cheap laughs and corny action aimed at the lowest common denominator. But the fact is, in full expectation of seeing a superior Trek film I found myself watching Wrath Of Khan through objective eyes, and as a result I also found myself realising that it isn't very good. The production design is not only dated, but also just generally poor and odd looking (especially the costumes), the dialogue clunky and immature, and seeing two of the biggest small screen hams facing off against each other on, well, small screens (they never actually meet in this film!) I found myself laughing at it a lot more often than with it. I grew up with Shatner, Nimoy and Kelley and so they still have a place in my nostalgic heart but if I was to be honest, if I saw this for the first time now, I'd find it a tacky exercise in cheap laughs and corny action aimed at the lowest common denominator. I just hope I can keep my objectivity on hold for the next time I see Star Wars or my reality as I know it will come crashing down around my ears...
