In the movie Nero is a guy with a surrealistic mining ship who blames a Vulcan diplomat who "promised the Romulans that [he] would save their planet" for the destruction of his home planet.
In Countdown Nero is not the only survivor, he grabbed power and became Praetor, he improved his ship and last but not least he knew Spock personally.

Obviously the extended Countdown version makes far more sense and shows that the movie was full of unrefined narrative raw material. A better way to do the movie would have been to cut all TWOKish elements and make Nero a random enemy.
