Once in enemy territory, the captain and his crew make a startling discovery: Shinzon is human, a slave from the Romulan sister planet of Remus, and has a secret, shocking relationship to Picard himself.

More Info:
  • Kenneth Turan

    Familiarity and continuity are what the success of this series has always been about. We've been here before, and we like the neighborhood.

  • Owen Gleiberman

    A little bit obsessed with replication.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • William Arnold

    Has a delightfully nasty villain and pumped-up action, albeit along familiar lines.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    This is a better movie than the vacuous "Insurrection," thanks largely to a sympathetic screenwriter, longtime "Trek" fanatic John Logan ("Gladiator"), and a crew (headed by Patrick Stewart's Capt. Jean-Luc Picard and Brent Spiner's android Data) determined to go out in glory.

    If anyone tries to tell you how this one ends, blast 'em with a phaser. Set on stun, of course.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    While Star Trek: Nemesis isn't nearly as good as the best Nicholas Meyer-written movies like "The Undiscovered Country," it is far from the worst, thanks to the topical issues it raises, the performances of Stewart and Hardy, and that essential feature -- a decent full-on space battle.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Unfortunately, the plot runs out of dilithium crystals, and drifts to a sluggish and predictable conclusion

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Fails to match the philosophical and acting bounties of 1996's ''First Contact.'' Baird has seen to it that the Enterprise's being under fire still amounts to the crew rocking back and forth, gripping the railings as the ship's phasers are down to 4 percent.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The venerable series is looking outmoded and outdated. Media saturation and age have taken their toll.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Once again, perhaps the most impressive effect is Patrick Stewart as Captain Picard, using his Shakespearean training to make long mouthfuls of nonsense sound almost persuasive.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    It combines elements of "Lord of the Rings," "Star Wars" and James Bond flicks with generically satisfying results.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Mike Robinson

    The humor is not as hackneyed as in previous films.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Paul Malcolm

    Nemesis never feels true to itself, its energy never fully engaged. Even with Earth on the line in its climactic space battle, the film seems embarrassed that it couldn't have found a better way to work through its issues.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Once it reaches the meat of the story, it seems to lose its confidence.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    An amiably klutzy affair whose warm, fuzzy heart emits intermittent bleats from the sleeve of its gleaming spacesuit.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Despite the intriguing set-up, there's something unambitious and scaled-back about Star Trek Nemesis, so that most of the time it feels like a slightly suped-up episode of the "Next Generation" TV series.

    Variety Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Reasonably entertaining if utterly familiar entry in the long-running SF franchise.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Star Trek is over for me. I've been looking at these stories for half a halftime, and, let's face it, they're out of gas.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Fails to engage.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    As spent screen series go, Star Trek: Nemesis is even more suggestive of a 65th class reunion mixer where only eight surviving members show up -- and there's nothing to drink.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    Conventional wisdom has it that the best Star Trek movies are the even-numbered ones. Nemesis may keep that streak alive, but barely.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Even though it doesn't feel like an appropriate send-off, the lethargy of Star Trek: Nemesis is probably indication enough that the series should end here.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Alex Pappademas

    As Shinzon, a sickly boy-emperor grown from Picard's DNA by scheming Romulans, Tom Hardy channels some of the verve of rich-Corinthian-leather-clad Khan villain Ricardo Montalban, although his real model seems to be Joaquin Phoenix in Gladiator.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Nemesis, by comparison, is about as exciting as a Tribble on Vicodin.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Plays like a greatest-hits remix; like "Die Another Day," it's bent on resurrecting a moribund franchise by recalling all the things you used to love about it till you grew into big-boy pants.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    There comes a time when the future looks old, and that's where "Star Trek" finds itself on the time-space continuum.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Frank Lovece

    Collapsed into the black hole of its own mythology.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    An ordeal for all save the most ardent Treksters.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    An offering so endearingly lame it seems to have missed the past 10 years' worth of special-effects breakthroughs.
