With longtime foes the Romulans at last willing to negotiate peace with the Federation, the Enterprise and its crew are dispatched on a diplomatic mission. But it's all a ruse that will pit them against a wily villain with a sinister agenda.

Reasonably entertaining if utterly familiar.
J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader  full review
 
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.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly  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.
 
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.
Alex Pappademas, Village Voice  full review
 
Star Trek: Nemesis stands alone as an engaging intergalactic thriller with a lot of spirit-and some rousing action scenes.
Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper  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.
Wesley Morris, Boston Globe  full review
 
The cheesiness so endemic to the Star Trek franchise ... is back in full force.
Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
 
An ordeal for all save the most ardent Treksters.
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
 
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.
Mike Clark, USA Today  full review
 
Stewart instead lends integrity and wry stoicism to Nemesis, but the movie is unworthy of him.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle  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.
David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer
 
Surprisingly, considering that Baird is a former film editor, the movie is rather choppy.
Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
 
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.
Howard Cohen, Miami Herald  full review
 
Star Trek: Nemesis spins a fascinating and, finally, quite moving variation on an old saw: You're your own worst enemy.
Susan Stark, Detroit News
 
Nemesis suffers from a paunchy midsection, several plodding action sequences and a wickedly undramatic central theme.
Mark Harden, Denver Post  full review
 
Star Trek was kind of terrific once, but now it is a copy of a copy of a copy.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
 
Too much of Nemesis has a tired, talky feel.
Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
 
May satisfy the faithful but can leave the casual moviegoer feeling as if he's walked into a bar where nobody knows his name.
Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press  full review
 
A plodding if mildly entertaining sci-fi adventure that plays more like an extended television episode than a full-length film.
Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
