The Next Generation?By Bill Kruzykowski from Leavesden, England , 17 Nov 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]Once again, to the delight of any Star Trek fan, we find ourselves involved and pleased to witness a new tale about the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise - TNG.
The heart of the story revolves around the dilemma of cloning and friendship. Jean-Luc and Data are our two focal points throughout the movie. The theme is well clothed in details of a Romulan plot against the Federation.
As with any good story it tries to maintain our interest and involvement along the way as well as to entertain us. I am sorry to say that this one in retrospect will at times leave us a bit unsatisfied. The special effects live up to the current standards that we have all come to expect, but a small amount of human kindness and insight as to what makes us unique in the universe isn't quite enough to carry us through the film. As with most Star Trek movies this one will satisfy our appetite by giving us the all-important battle and tactical sequence that heightens it?s ending. Which any good chess player can relate to, by being able to see the moves well in advance but by not having them lessen the joy of watching them played out one by one. On this note you will not be dissatisfied.
In final comparison to it?s predecessors like Insurrection, First Contact, Generations and the all famous The Wrath of Khan this one can be proud to come away with a strong second place finish.
So may Star Trek continue to live long and prosper for the ultimate benefit of us all.

GreatBy a customer from Durham , 14 Jun 2007Great film and as a Star Trek fan I enjoyed it tremendously.
A Generation moves onBy Jarreck Dylinda from West Yorkshire, England , 04 Jun 2007It is a close run thing for my fave Trek film and this has many qualities that I admire and I do love this film - depending on my mood this does sometimes rank above Insurrection and First Contact - if I could give it 4 and a half I would.
Nemesis has a darker feel to it than the previous Next Gen outings and is more cast orientated. I remember when I watched this in the cinema how atmospheric it all seemed. Hardy plays his part very well and very convincingly indeed.
I feel the story is good, it is well directed and overall the story gave hope at the end - as any Trek story should. But I am still shocked by the ending. I had purposely not read any reviews or spoilers, judging by the reaction of the other cinema goers neither had they. We sat staring at the screen for a good 5 minutes afterwards in stunned silence not believing what we had just seen. I am still scarred by it!
Again this film has all you need in a Trek film, a 15 year love arc, threats from an new old enemy, weapon of mass destruction, revalations of old plots, departure of friends to go to new pastures after one final mission and slaves becoming masters with revenge on their minds.
It is just about stand alone enough for Sci-Fi fans who have a basic knowledge of the Next Gen series. If you want an entry level into Next Gen films then start with First Contact (don't bother with Generations it is not really a true Next Gen film), which I believe caters better for all film goers.
If on the other hand you just want an action film set in space with big weapons, good CGI, great acting and ugly aliens then this will suit you fine.
In my opinion as good as this film is you really do need more than a passing understanding of Trek, and especially Next Gen, to fully appreciate this film. I think only Trek fans can possibly appreciate the emotional implications of the ending.

Always going where no-one has gone before.By a customer from UK , 01 Jun 2007As usual, imaginative, well contstructed story and packed with action. Be prepared to shed a tear.
What a film!By a customer from Notts , 25 Apr 2007This was just great. As usual with a Star Trek film there are a few boring bits, but some of the battle scenes between the huge enemy ship and the Enterprise (and Romulan assistance) is just great. A must for all Star Trek fans who haven't seen it already, and anyone who has yet to be convinced!!
Even Number Good Odd Number BadBy a customer from Scotland , 14 Jan 2007They broke the rule of even number good, odd number bad!
Ok to watch if you have nothing better to do but don't go out of your way to watch it.
