Thrilling
5 July 2002 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

At first I thought, Who came up with this bright idea? Take two people -- who've know each other for almost forty years, mind you -- and sit them down next to each other for about an hour while the camera is running.

As banal and perfunctory as it sounds in theory, in practice, the concept works -- largely because the clash of the two personalities is (as Mr. Spock would say) fascinating.

Indeed, it is a clash; Shatner and Nimoy couldn't be more different. Yes, they were born four days apart -- as we find out at the beginning of the film -- and their careers following similar arcs, but their professional concerns and personal problems diverged radically. Nimoy, the actor's actor, and Shater, the comedian, approached the roles from different perspectives. Their Trek journeys, although documented in more detail elsewhere, are discussed with benefit of age-weary hindsight.

This film is very entertaining, intriguing in parts, and always interesting. For Trekkers, what more could you want?
