The actor who’s still best known for his incredible looks and playing James Kirk in the “Star Trek” movies is suddenly showing he has serious acting talents, and we couldn’t be more happier about it.
Things started to look good for Pine in 2015 when he stared in Craig Zobel’s gritty indie “Z for Zachariah” alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor and Margot Robbie.
Playing a divorced father who teams with his ex-con brother to rip off a chain of banks to pay off the family ranch, Pine delivers a somber performance with fits of rage that are shocking to see coming from the guy most people know as the young captain of the Enterprise.
The back and forth between Pine and Bridges, with dialogue from screenwriter Taylor Sheridan, is incredibly powerful.
Now, as love interest Steve Trevor in the highly anticipated “Wonder Woman”, Pine proves that regardless of the size of the film, if the material is right he can be stellar.
I’ll be the first to admit, when he was in that black-and-white photo with Wonder Woman that appears in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” I thought, “Chris Pine? WTF!” But we’ve come a long way since.
Warner Bros.T’s an endearing quality that Pine brings to the Trevor role that’s a mix of suave early-2oth century style and self-deprecating humor.
Honestly, the movie wouldn’t be as funny or emotional if an actor of Chris Pine’s ability wasn’t in it.
The truth is Chris Pine is having an incredible moment in his career right now and we feel it’s time to celebrate it.
