Any time someone starts to think Wrath of Khan is overrated, they should immediately rewatch it. There's not much to say here that hasn't been said a million times over, so I'll keep it brief. This is action filmmaking at its best, taking a very human story about growing older, being put out to pasture, and attempting to reclaim one's former glory with an exciting action movie centered around revenge. Montalban and Shatner deliver wonderful performances as foils here, the action is solid (particularly the final, submarine-inspired battle), and the score is top-notch. The best of the franchise and one of the best science-fiction films of all time.
