Wrathy enough? Too Wrathy? Are the Wrathy levels just right? I think that consensus is behind "enough Wrathyness." I agree and remarkably, so does Derek.
It's always hard to quantify what goes right instead of what goes wrong. Khan has weight and depth, even if his actions are two-dimensional. Sulu and Uhura don't do much more here than they do in The Motion Picture, but Scotty and Checkov do. The Genesis device is one of the most MacGuffin-y of MacGuffins, but it doesn't magically resolve the plot. Quite the opposite really.
What is it that makes "Wrath of Khan" work?
