I bought a new DVD today. I remember seeing this movie when I was very little - way before TNG existed. I knew absolutely nothing about 'Trek back then. But what I did know is that this movie absolutely rocks in all the right places.
I had forgotten how good this movie is. Compared to others in the series, it's not full of a bunch of tech-babble. Quite the opposite. The flick is character driven (the best kind). Ricardo Montalbán is the ultimate villain in this story. Dare I say, an epic villain. It just makes the whole movie that much better.
Yeah, and you thought that all Ricardo ever did was Fantasy Island. Ha! Think again.
Trust me, it's cool. Go rent it. Then buy it. 🙂
