Lots of sci-fi action mixed in with messages about peace.
| Original Score: 3/5
...fun stuff, unoriginal or not.
| Original Score: 7/10
| Original Score: A-
Reasonably entertaining if utterly familiar.
If you're a fan you'll be satisfied, if not ecstatic, but it's doubtful that this movie will win any new converts.
| Original Score: 3/4
It doesn't deliver anything new to the series, and even fans might find parts distinctly slow, but it finally hits most of the right buttons.
Somewhere towards the end of the movie, exhaustion set in.
Light years/ several warp speeds/ levels and levels of dilithium crystals better than the pitiful Insurrection. Which isn't to say that it's the equal of some of its predecessors.
Directed Baird is a new to the series, and he has done a courageous job at sending this crew to their last voyage in space.
| Original Score: 3/4
If this is The Next Generation's final voyage, then it goes somewhat gently into that good night rather than raging against the dying of the light. Should a final adventure give them the justice they deserve? Like Picard, I say 'Make it so!'
Hardy's pout and baldie glare are high-quality stage-trained British Hollywood fiendishness and, like the Borg Queen, he seems to have taken his fashion tips from Clive Barker's Cenobites.
This tenth feature is a big deal, indeed -- at least the third-best, and maybe even a notch above the previous runner-up, Nicholas Meyer's Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
As lo-fi as the special effects are, the folks who cobbled Nemesis together indulge the force of humanity over hardware in a way that George Lucas has long forgotten.
| Original Score: B-
Sure, it's more of the same, but as the film proves, that's not always a bad thing.
It's not the groundbreaking movie it needed to be to infuse the series with renewed life.
Not only is it talky, but the talk is repetitious, incoherent, and spoken in a soft whisper, as if the actors feared disturbing the audience in its restful slumbers.
The Enterprise is losing speed.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Whatever the weaknesses, "Nemesis" deserves some credit for its universality. It can be enjoyed by anyone, whether the biggest "Trek" nerd, or a newcomer to the series.
