 SPLICEDwire | "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" DVD review (1982) Nicholas Meyer, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, ...
Arguably the best "Star Trek" film and certainly a turning point in the franchise, the success of "The Wrath of Khan" (not just financially, but stylistically and in terms of creating the religious adherence to detailed "Trek" lore) is directly responsible for the viability of subsequent films and spin-off TV series.
Ricardo Montalban chews scenery with style and conviction in the title role as he commandeers another Star Fleet vessel with his rag-tag followers and engages in visually spectacular, submarine-like combat to the death with the Enterprise inside a nebula.
Surprisingly, the film was made on the cheap, and director Nicholas Meyer explains in great detail on his commentary track and in supplementary interviews how he cut costs and recycled sets while breathing new life into "Star Trek." Meyers comes across as being a bit egotistical, but what he has to say is fascinating.

 Sayonara, Mgm/Ua Studios, Marlon Brando, Ricardo Montalban
Nakamura (the only real Japanese man shown in the film and played interestingly enough by a very young Ricado Montalban) mentions that some of his own countrymen are not too terribly enthusiastic about international relationships.
But for once the soap operatics seem to be there to support the film's surprisingly daring criticism of the US Army's racist policies rather than its sole raison d'etre, and it's hard to imagine a major studio today making a mainstream big-budget picture with A-list stars about, say, American troops falling for nice Islamic girls.
Based on the novel by James Michener and directed by Joshua Logan (PICNIC) SAYONARA is a not very subtle account of American soldiers falling for and taking Japanese women for wives during the Korean War era.
