It's timeless. Generally agreed upon to be the best Star Trek story ever.

 

The FX work is some of the best ever made-- the model work is so good that to this day the Enterprise in this movie still my favorite spaceship because it feels so real.

 

Sure, Khan himself is melodramatic and over the top... and so is Shatner, but that's part of the fun.

I rewatched it recently for the first time in years expecting it to not hold up. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it not only held up, it's one of the great sci-fi films of all time.

100%!

 

It's Star Trek, but it has both a very human post-modern action hero turns old story, as well as a legit, hard scifi narrative that drives ethical questions, all hidden inside a revenge movie.

For what little it's worth. . .I am not really a fan of Star Trek at all and think Wrath of Khan is a bloody classic, so definitely worth watching.

Wrath of Khan probably should be the entry point for anyone wondering just what is this Star Trek thing. Perhaps ironically, even though it is a sequel to a TOS episode it feels completely self contained. Everything you need to know to get the characters and the setting is all in the film and on top of that it is just a really well done film.

Back in the day I introduced my Granddad to Star Trek through it as well. He of course was familiar, as many people are in a cursory sense, but he had not been a fan. He served in the Royal Navy as an engineer and Chief Petty Officer during WWII, so I figured he would really get the intentional mirroring that Nick Meyer did to classic war films with Khan. He did, and he really enjoyed it. Anyway...

Every time I see a trailer or piece of promotional advertisement or online-speculation/confirmation-that-Michael-Dorn-is-gonna-be-in-this or what have you it really gets me how weird television is, how weird the entertainment landscape in general is, that this is going to be a for real TV show instead of

 

like

 

a video game or an IDW comic or series of licensed ghostwritten books 'authored' by Patrick Stewart or whatever. They're making this. They (Michael Chabon?!) already made it.
