Review by Roger Ebert, who is a Star Trek fan. Roger gives the movie 2½ stars: (definite spoilers)

"'Star Trek' as a concept has voyaged far beyond science fiction and into the safe waters of space opera, but that doesn’t amaze me. The Gene Roddenberry years, when stories might play with questions of science, ideals or philosophy, have been replaced by stories reduced to loud and colorful action. Like so many franchises, it’s more concerned with repeating a successful formula than going boldly where no 'Star Trek' has gone before." - Roger Ebert

I only read the first two paragraphs, and the last paragraph, of Roger's review. From scanning, what is in-between seems to contain heavy spoilers. Roger is very critical of the Star Trek franchise, and while he gave both Nemeis and Insurrection only two stars, he's critical of some of the more popular ones as well.

I like Roger Ebert because, like me, he ranks the movie "Casablanca" as the greatest movie of all time.
