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. full review
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. full review
John Logan clones Enterprise skipper Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), geek-relatable android Data (Brent Spiner), and -- less successfully -- 1982's Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan. full review
Star Trek: Nemesis stands alone as an engaging intergalactic thriller with a lot of spirit-and some rousing action scenes. full review
This is the fourth film to feature the Next Generation crew, and everyone is still off-track after the ideologically unsound, sparsely entertaining Insurrection. full review
The cheesiness so endemic to the Star Trek franchise ... is back in full force.
An ordeal for all save the most ardent Treksters.
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. full review
Stewart instead lends integrity and wry stoicism to Nemesis, but the movie is unworthy of him. full review
While the movie itself wanders off-course halfway through, the coming attractions -- showcasing Nemesis' jacked-up special effects, production values and camerawork -- were a knockout.
Surprisingly, considering that Baird is a former film editor, the movie is rather choppy.
Devotees of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan will feel a nagging sense of deja vu, and the grandeur of the best Next Generation episodes is lacking. full review
Star Trek: Nemesis spins a fascinating and, finally, quite moving variation on an old saw: You're your own worst enemy.
Nemesis suffers from a paunchy midsection, several plodding action sequences and a wickedly undramatic central theme. full review
Star Trek was kind of terrific once, but now it is a copy of a copy of a copy. full review
Too much of Nemesis has a tired, talky feel.
May satisfy the faithful but can leave the casual moviegoer feeling as if he's walked into a bar where nobody knows his name. full review
Familiarity breeds content with Star Trek fans, and the 10th movie in the series does nothing to mess with the series' comfortably monotonous fantasy formula. full review
A plodding if mildly entertaining sci-fi adventure that plays more like an extended television episode than a full-length film.
