  1. Worst HD transfer I’ve ever seen. Plus the disc wouldn’t even play until I scratched the paint off the backside that had adhered from sitting on another disc. You can see right through the disc too. But mostly, there are two bridge scenes where everyone seems to have one side of their faces 20 shades darker than the other. Looks muddy.
    Rating: 2 / 5

  2. I wish I had paid attention to these reviews a little closer because I would not have ordered this knowing it was NOT the Director’s Cut.

  3. Very enjoyable! The plot wasn’t as original as it’s predecessor’s but still a good tale. An old enemy seeking revenge is a story that can never seem old if told in the right way. With that said, this was told in the right way. The actor who played Khan was remarkable as a man hell bent on revenge. The original cast was a pleasure to watch. And Spock’s sacrifice was very moving. However, the character development/backstory at the beginning regarding Kirk being tired of his Admiral position and missing being out in the last frontier is really getting old. This was already touched upon in part 1, why bring it up again?

    As far as the blu ray release is concerned though, and I should mention I’m not digital transfer/restoration expert, but several times during the film, especially at the beginning there did seem to be a lot of discoloration and pixelation upon the faces of certain characters. Why is that? Isn’t Blu Ray supposed to be the ultimate resolution???

    So the film in general gets 4/5 stars, and the blu ray release gets 2/5.

  4. This is not and does not offer the much better director’s cut version! The director’s cut version is freely available on DVD, but not on Blu-Ray. Other Blu-Ray discs such as “Donnie Darko” offer the theatrical and director’s cut in the same package, and there’s no reason Paramount couldn’t do the same thing here.

    Hopefully, Paramount will eventually release the director’s cut on Blu-Ray. But by not releasing it now, that means you have to buy it twice, once now to enjoy it in HD and the second time to enjoy it the way the director meant it to be. That could’ve been easily avoided, but instead Paramount wants to milk us, or something.

    I’m not buying it. Hold out for the Director’s Cut, which is a more complete film and more deserving of the Blu-Ray treatment, especially in light of Nicholas Meyer’s new book about the making of the film. For now you might be better off buying that book, “A View From The Bridge”, and holding onto your DVD until Paramount makes this right.

  5. I love the movie, the best Star Trek movie in the series for me, the audio/video quality on Blu-Ray is pretty good, the best transfer I’ve seen. I have the 116 minute long version of this movie on DVD but what about on Blu-Ray, where is it? That’s the one I want and that’s the one I’ve been waiting for. I always thought that Blu-Ray has more storage space than DVD. Please Paramount, release the 116 minute version of Star Trek II on Blu-Ray. By the way, I love the new cover on Blu-Ray, it looks excellent !!!
