Which Captain Kirk do you prefer.


 


I imagine that most fans are like myself and still prefer the orignal and best, which is William Shatner.


Who am I to argue with the captain of the Enterprise?

My fav Kirk will always be William Shatner. He dfined the character for me and through William Shatner's interpretation Kirk aong with Picard became the ultimate character to aspire to.

If only I had Kirk's luck with women.

Of course I would also pick The Shat as the best...but Chris Pines portrayal  was very good also. He's only been in one movie and shows great promise to add to Kirk's legend.

Chris Pine was good in the role but Shat will always be the real deal

JJ is going to have Pine beef up each film so Shatner can do the 4th film

I prefer William Shatner's Kirk, but I also really liked Pine's Kirk. I think Pine's portrayal will continue to get better with each film.

Bill Shatner is of course the best Kirk, Chris Pine just didn't look right to me, he doesn't even suit the uniform.

There is no best. Just the one who originated the role and the youger guy who will define the character for a new generation. I like them both and hope nuKirk will become iconic in his own right.

I like Chris Pine's portrayal of Kirk. But the Shat-Man has my vote.

Shatner of course, If Chris Pine didn't spend half the movie running around like retard, MAYBE he could had been a good Kirk..But naw , he sucks as the whole movie did.

Pine was just awful. An absolute pine in the arse. Dreadful. Cliched, stereotyped, predictable and about as far from the character of Kirk as you can get. If you are going to rewrite the modus operandi of J.T.K. - then why not just have a different character? These are the voyages of James Tiberius Dean ... out of place and out of time ... a rebel without a clue.

The original is certainly the most Kirk-like. The new one was not that amazing in comparison.

I want anyone who votes for James T Dawson ti please explain why you liked his performance at all, let alone better. In case it's not clear, I voted for Bill.

Knew it. Only one to vote Pine. Shatner is mildly irritating nowadays, but he's a good actor. Chris Pine is ALSO a good actor, but he is given better action sequences to work with. However, he is attractive so I prefer him.
