I have been a fan of William Shatner for over 50 years. He was absolutely fantastic, especially considering his age, hard to believe he is 88. He was very charismatic, intelligent, sharp and witty! He is quite the inspiration to keeping very active throughout your life, and always be inquisitive about everything.

5.0 star rating Paul Wilson from Richmond, California


My wife and I saw William Shatner last evening at the Marin Center in San Rafael. Mr. Shatner was funny and interesting, and he took charge of the stage and the presentation, from the beginning to the end. He was full of energy -- he prowled back and forth across the stage, gesticulating, often laughing, occasionally shouting, and always engaging the audience, sometimes one person at a time and sometimes all together. Most amazingly, he has that unmistakable voice, loud and clear. He sounds like the Captain Kirk of 50 years ago. I wish he had spent more time on the questions that the audience had submitted, and I wish we had heard him interact more with the interviewer, but he seemed to have an unlimited number of great stories -- and he may have had the best idea of how to get everybody charged up and laughing from beginning to end. He got a long standing ovation when he walked out on stage, and he got another one when he walked off -- and both of them were well deserved.

As another reviewer stated, it was nice, great in fact, to see him since i have watched him in so many things my entire life. But, overhearing statements from others after the show and my own personal feeling, he really didn't answer any questions (moderator was able to ask two submitted by audience members but could not keep Shatner on point) because he would go into long story telling about so many different things in his life. There was no connection either with anything he talked about and the movie, "The Wrath of Kahn", that we just screened and the way this was advertised led many to believe that is what this event was really about. Overall, rating it right in the middle because it was both thrilling to see him and disappointing that with all his storytelling, we didn't really leave feeling we gained anything new about his time playing Captain Kirk or even of William Shatner that we haven't already learned in previous writings or interviews. Live Long & Prosper, William Shatner!

Personally, it was nice to see him although I think he should have taken few questions by show of hands in audience. Next, ticket price could have been lower. In contrast, he could have worn a star trek shirt to represent what got him there. God bless him always. Phil

Enjoyed seeing the movie. Was really looking forward to seeing William Shatner. He talked nothing about star trek (or anything of real interest) he took a few questions from Mancow Mueller such as.. Do you like dogs or horses? Something about paintball..and a speeding ticket Overall very disappointing. I feel like he didn't really want to be there. Avoid seeing this if you are considering going.

My son invited me to attend the "Wrath of Khan" move presentation with a live appearance of Captain Kirk, Bill Shatner! We are both avid Star Trek kinda guys, so this seemed to be pretty cool! Nothing could be farther from the truth! In a nutshell...It was a total waste of time and money with very expensive tickets! The talk was MC'ed by Mancow Muller, a Chicago radio personality. He was a waste too. Shatner said -0- about anything Star Trek related! Kinda thought he would speak maybe to the Kahn movie, but no, nothing. In fact, he just chit chatted about everything from paint balling in Joliet (?), to boxer or brief underwear(?), to how many driving tickets he's received over the years(?)! Wonderful! Again, Shatner said nothing, about why I believe all the folks in the audience attended, about his stardom as Captain Kirk! He should be ashamed of how he appeared. And for the life of me, I cannot understand why he would present himself as such a dumb-ass person. Sorry.

So sorry for all of us who thought we would see something from the past that would ignite our imaginations. Shatner's very presence killed all the magic.
