The tenth instalment in the 'Star Trek' film series. When Picard (Patrick Stewart) and the crew discover a disassembled prototype of their android colleague Data (Brent Spiner) on a distant planet, they take the parts back to the Enterprise and attempt to put them back together. Meanwhile, news arrives that the new Romulan leader Shinzon (Tom Hardy) wants to restore relations with the United Federation of Planets and Picard is sent to negotiate. When Picard arrives, he uncovers a shocking truth about Shinzon's connection to himself, and unearths a sinister plot to destroy the Earth.

Yet another Trek film, this one the last with The Next Generation crew aboard. Mercifully in a totally different league to the previous offering (Insurrection), which must be far and away the worst of the ten, Nemesis portrays a darkness rarely seen in the genre, and to good effect too.
However, hardened fans of the TV series will be appalled at the continuity blooper (and consequently the missed plot opportunities) regarding Data's "prototype". No mention is made in the film whatsoever of Lore, who was already well established in TNG as the evil "older brother" of Data. Read the original film script and he's there. For me, the impostor that was presented instead really spoiled what was otherwise an enjoyable way to spend two or so hours.

Chances are, if you are buying this movie, you have already formed an opinion on it by now. As the reviews suggest, it is not an outright success story, but it has to be said it does miss the mark on a lot too.
This re-release as a special edition gives a chance to re-evaluate what seems like it will be the last in the Next Generation movies. In viewing again, long after the excitement of a new Trek movie has passed, and the disappointment of something less than was hoped for or hyped has faded, Nemesis turns out to be not such a bad movie after all. The plot revolves around the Romulan Empire, specifically its new leader who has taken power with the Remans, previously the dominated race. This new leader, Schinzon, turns out to be Picards clone, and when Schinzon summons Picard and the Enterprise, the question is - what are his motives. Well, predictably after a period of cautious circling and meaning infused dinners, the motives turn out to be domination and destruction, and our heroes have to save the day - however, along the way the writer (John Logan, also writer of Gladiator) infuses much subtext of families and the dilemna of facing the evil within yourself, and aspiring to become something better - very much the stuff of Trek.
For the movie, the writing is not bad, the effects fantastic, and this version boasts a wonderful dts mix as well as 5.1. However, as comfortable as the leads are in their roles, and Tom Hardy fills out his part well also, there is a nagging feeling of tiredness about it all.

If this is the last Star Trek film then well it is an interesting, if problematic ending.
Let's get one thing out the way - the action pieces are excellent and the best seen in any trek film. The battle between the Enterprise and the Shinzon warbird is the best ever put to a Star Trek film and is up there with the Star Wars battles of old. The problem with it is that the movies seem lately to have had to struggle to shake the shackles off from its tv heritage (first contact is the only TNG one that has suceeded). The result is like 'insurrection' an extended TNG episode with a large budget. The things the characters are forced to confront in this movie are subtle and brilliant and while the death of a major character at the end might seem a little stilted to some, to those that have followed the show from the beginning it will resonate deeply. The problem with Nemesis is that it does not make concessions to non-fans and is sadly not destined to be mentioned in the same vain as the Wrath of Khan, a film it so depserately seems to be clinging on to.

In this fourth 'Next Generation' film there's a popping of champagne corks as Captain Picard fulfills his role as best man at the dinner celebrating the marriage of his first officer and ship's councillor; Will Riker and Deanna Troi. It's also a farewell as the happy couple are due to leave the ship and start duties on the USS Titan. But their last few days on the ship are interrupted by the chance discovery of a positronic signal from a nearby planet which is deemed worthy of investigation.

The trip down is more eventful than expected - after discovering Data's slightly backwards twin they find themselves escaping a hostile reception in action packed style. No sooner are they back on the ship with their new visitor, the crew are required at Romulus to attend the scene of a mass political assassination. The film gives us some interesting insights into Romulan culture, or rather 'Remus' culture. Remus is a neighbouring planet where the native Remans are forced to live on the constantly dark side of their planet, they are viewed by Romulus to be a lesser race and considered nothing better than slaves. However, it appears they have a saviour in the guise of a vaguely familiar human, Picard's clone "Schinzon".

Nemesis turns into a very personal battle between Picard and his younger genetically matched adversary. The two debate on how they are the same, and Schinzon states how if given the same upbringing, Picard would be just like him. The battle of wits is often quite compelling and at first it looks as though the film is going to take the easy option and see the young 'Picard' have an epiphany and accept that he can use his influence for more altruistic means, but thankfully he remains a twisted, dark soul.
