Star Trek: Nemesis

Critics Consensus

Nemesis has an interesting premise and some good action scenes, but the whole affair feels a bit tired.

Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) diverts the starship Enterprise from its scheduled trip to Cmdr. Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Counselor Troi's (Marina Sirtis) wedding to negotiate a peace treaty with the Romulans. Picard is shocked when Shinzon (Tom Hardy), the new Praetor of the Romulans, admits to being a clone of him. When the crew members discover a break-in on their computer, they are forced into a life-or-death battle to stop Shinzon's Warbird before it can destroy the Earth.

    Here is the kiss goodbye from the TNG ensemble, although perhaps less than a kiss and more of a postcard. And so we are lead through this roadside museum/cafe/diner dedicated to the "the good ol' days', where nods are halfheartedly made to all the familiar and recognizable tropes of the television show, and all the nourishment offered is kinda old and lukewarm. Ho-hum. Warp out of here.

    It's difficult for a particular franchise of films to live on for an extended period of time, let alone a long TV series and 4 feature films. With uninspired direction and a gradually silly film, It seems that after 15 years, this iteration of the Enterprise crew just ran out of gas. Though 'Insurrection' did well at further developing the crew of the Enterprise, 'Nemesis' puts a heavy focus on its villain. This time played by newcomer (at the time) Tom Hardy. Hardy plays Shinzon, a mysterious character hell-bent on completing his Romulan mission with a background linked to Captain Picard himself. Although the dialogue isn't always the best, Hardy shows just how good of an actor he would become, especially up against someone as revered as Patrick Stewart. Director Stuart Baird supposedly had never seen an episode of The Next Generation, and the way he handled the direction and tone of this film definitely showed that lack of knowledge. I think his attempt at creating a story that felt very different from what came before is admirable, but too much liberties taken and you may have some upset fans. This also comes into play when you think about the strange inclusion of a brother to Data, and Shinzon being a clone of Picard. I didn't find either of those two story lines compelling, nor did it really bring anything new to that approach of storytelling. It's only when I watched the actors bring much more out of the dialogue that I realized there could have been something great here. If for anything else, Shinzon is an extremely active villain and Hardy doesn't waste the extra screen time, though I was a bit turned off by a unique communication device he uses early on in the film, seriously it's just uncomfortable (and not Star Trek at all) for the wrong reasons. With diminished screen time for the Enterprise crew, they barely leave the bridge, except for one out of place Mad Max style desert sequence. Nemesis is just one of those Star Trek films I can't seem to figure out. I can tell the franchise fatigue seemed to set in, but there's still plenty of good with the performances of the crew and the newcomer Tom Hardy. +Hardy showed promise +Picard and Data's performances -But their strange subplots were unnecessary -Director/writers uncomfortable plot choices 5.4/10

    Final Star Trek film featuring the Generations crew is a pretty good final, before the J.J Abrams reboot, and it's a step up from the previous film, and it manages to be an effective blend of Scio Fi and thrilling action, enough to please fans of the show and films. Although not a perfect tenth film, Nemesis is a worthwhile picture, one that is quite entertaining from start to finish. A young Tom Hardy plays the villain here, and he gives the film's strongest performance. Here Hardy would show glimpses of what was to come later in his career. Add to that, a good story, and you have a worthwhile Star Trek film worth seeing if you've enjoyed the other entries in the series. Although not breaking any new ground in the film franchise, Nemesis is a worthy final for the Generations era of Star Trek films, and is a film that is also underrated. The film may be flawed, and it does fall short of what it could have been, but it does manage to be a highly engaging picture that is much better than what you might think. I enjoyed Nemesis and I thought for a tenth film, it managed to be quite good, even if it wasn't perfect. With that being said, there is enough thrills and entertainment value to be had here if you're in the mood for a fun little Sci Fi film. This one may not be the best Star Trek film, but it surely isn't the worst either. For what it offers, it has enough momentum to appeal to genre fans as well as Star Trek fans alike. This is a pleasant ending to the original series before the reboots, and it manages to be a pretty good final, despite the fact that it could have been a bit better as well.

    Not bad. I don't feel that Tom Hardy's character does enough to hurt Picard for him to be considered his nemesis, though-kind of dumb considering this is the film's title. You also don't see Shinzon become any kind of complicated character-he doesn't struggle with any of his decisions, or does anything good, just evil. This is the only thing that really annoys me about the film. It wouldn't have been that difficult to make him a complicated character. This could've become a legendary rivalry between these two characters, but instead falls short of being great.
