Mandatory for Any Fan
20 January 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In 2015, Leonard Nimoy passed away at the age of 83 in Los Angeles after a successful career especially in the role of Mr. Spock, the science officer and first office of the star-ship Enterprise from the original Star Trek series. His son, the unknown director Adam Nimoy, sees the chance to show to the fans a little of the history of his father through interviews of various fellow actors, actresses, directors, personalities and fans of Star Trek and Spock and footage of home videos. The documentary is mandatory for any fan and gives nostalgia from the period when the series was broadcast for the first time. It could be shorter since the participation of the cast of "The Big Bang Theory" is excessive and uninteresting. In the end, "For the Love of Spock" is a great homage to the beloved character and cult-actor. My vote is seven.
