I didn't want to see a young actor doing his best Shatner impersonation anyway.

Indeed - impersonation was not the intent and would have been a bad choice. That Pine was able to show us glimpses of Shatner without attempting that is at least to his credit in the acting department.

No where in the movie did Chris Pine ever remind me of Kirk. All you need to play Kirk is cockiness and he had that.

Cool

Kirk needs more than cockiness, my man...

Watch the very last scene, when Kirk comes out of the turbolift. The little lurch forward...the way he says "Bones"...when he takes the command chair...it's the closest to The Shat he is in the whole movie.
