The Captains

Well I just finished watching the film The Captains, it’s a documentary by William Shatner talking to all the people who played Captain in Star Trek. Now yes it’s Shatner doing the interviewing so you will hear a lot of stories from the Shatman but if you don’t expect that then you’ll have no interest in this anyways. The film really goes into the history of the actors work, and their personal life’s. You’ll see great interviews, but I think by far Sir Patrick Stewart was the best interview (no that’s not because he’s the best captain) it’s very interesting stuff. I have only one thing negative to say about the film, Avery Brooks had to be drunk during his interview. Kate Mulgrew and Scott Bakula really give some great insight into what happens to the home life when your the captain on the show. Chris Pine didn’t really add much to the film, but the again other than having an actor for a dad he really had to history, so you really can’t hold that against him. Over all I’d say give it a try if your a fan of the Star Trek franchise.
