Chris Pine is a great Kirk. He has already done things that William Shatner could never had done even in his television series years. Look Up George Takei talking about the new Kirk and William Shatner on youtube.com:)

I like Pine's Kirk. He's a cocky sod, but always manages to be likeable. Compare to his performance in Carriers, where he's very similar but plays it just over the unlikable asshole line.

I think he makes a good Kirk without trying to impersonate shatner too much, which is good. In the next movie though I want to see his awesome-ness in tactically out-thinking his enemies like the Kirk we all know and love, rather than arrogantly riding his luck like the first 2 movies where we've seen him get the chair too early, lose it and have to earn it back.

I don't think he'll ever reach the nostalgic level that Shatner is at but he's a good spin on the character.

tell you what...he held his own against Denzell in 'Unstoppable"...not Oscar material, but he did the job of the role...

I don't really like Pine as Kirk but its mostly the script.
I'm hoping he'll come off less of a jerk in the next movies. I certainly liked him better in STID than in ST09.

Come to think of it I didn't like Shatner as Kirk until the 80s. I thought he was too much of a 'ladies' man.
Maybe in another 20 years I'll think better of Pine.;)

I think I'd like Urban better as Kirk though.

I am with you on Urban...has he had a "bad " role?...if he has, I cannot I think of it...Bourne, ST, LOtR, Riddick...I did not see Judge Dredd, but I understand he did a good I job with that...I read recently that his "voice" of Dr. McCoy was so good that it moved Leonard Nimoy to tears...you gotta love that... :)

^Nothing against the rest of the cast but IMO Urban was the closest to his original counterpart.
