Re: Is Wrath of Khan Overrated
Villains wanting revenge doesn't make a WoK clone though, I mean it was hardly innovative back then.
I think your reaching a little to find similarities in FC, I just don't see it.
The similarities in the two films is more in the way Picard and Khan ditch common sense for revenge and, of course, the Moby Dick quotes spoken by both. What makes it stand out is, that like Montalban, Stewart had the acting chops to pull it off.
