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.

There is a theory amongst trekkies that Even films are Good and Odd films are Bad. Although true of all the other films, this rule breaks down with this film, which is devoid of any of the brilliant writing of 'First Contact', and lacks even the more mediocre writing of Enterprise.

This movie is filled with plot holes, cliche's and lazy sloppy writing - all the things that I never thought Star Trek would sink to. To start with, there is that 'happy families' scene at the start on the holodeck, followed by the contrived 'buggy racing' scene (just because they haven't done it before) and then there is the whole plot with Shinzon, which is desperately trying to be a 'devil twin' thing, but fails completely.

Overall, this film is so dreadful that I have thrown in the towel and joined the 'dark side'. Yes, that's right - I now believe that Star Wars would win the battle against Trek not through weaponry or tactics, but through sheer relative Charisma (even with Anakin in tow - how uncharismatic can you get?)

As an interesting footnote to this film, isn't it interesting that the phrase 'grow a beard' meets its counterpoint in this film, when Riker shaves it off? If growing a beard is associated with TV series suddenly getting much better (based on Riker growing a beard in series 2) then I find it deeply ironic that, when Riker shaves off his beard in this film, Nemesis turns from an initially promising film to the pile of tripe it has become!

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.

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.

Format: Blu-ray
Patrick Stewart - 'Jean Luc Picard'
Brent Spiner - 'Data/ B-4'
Johnathan Frakes - 'William Riker'
LeVar Burton - 'Geordi La Forge'
Michael Dorn - 'Worf'
Marina Sirtis - 'Deanna Troi'
Gates McFadden - 'Beverly Crusher'

Whilst investigating signals on an unchartered planet, the Captain, Data and Worf , shuttle down to the surface,
much to their supprise they find several robotic parts, it's a double of Data.
They become under attack from a number of the planets occupants, they escape along with 'Data's' double, ....
in parts.
Enterprise and it's crew are ordered to 'Romulus' to act as an escort to the new 'Romulan' leader 'Preator Shinzan'
(Tom Hardy)
'Jean Luc' is in for a supprise when realizing the new 'Romulan' leader is a 'clone' of himself, perhaps his most
dangerous adversary yet.
The 'Clone' has an agenda, as well as conquering the entire 'Romulan' empire, the destruction of earth and the death
of 'Jean Luc'
The Enterprise Captain has to battle himself.
It becomes a battle against superior odds for the crew of the Enterprise, ultimately a heavy price will be paid for the
encounter with ';Shinzan'
(The film gives us a glimpse of the series's future, our first, if but brief sequence with 'Kathryn Janeway')
For me - This is probably my favourite 'Generations' movie, equal to anything that had come before, this having the
benefit of some impressive Special-Effects and Battle sequences.
