Start with the opening credits and end with the end credits! That film could have been SOOOO much better..... I still can't help but enjoy it though. The friendship bonds in that film were wonderful.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up! So many things in the movie could've been done better, one major thing for me was Data's death. Is was poorly done and didn't even seem necessary to the story. The story, what little there was, was about Picard facing his own darkness, what he could have become, what he could have been capable of if he had lived the life Shinzon had lived. Stewart and the guy who played Shinzon were not believable as twins anyway so they killed the story with their casting.

Killing Data only seemed to add some cheap drama and they did it by knocking off one of the best TNG characters for no reason! It just seems they were trying to recreate Spock's death which had purpose and served the story. Even with B4, Spock's Katra, it'd been done before, so much of Nemesis was just ripping off prior Trek films.

I could not agree more.

Generations for me. an awkward attempt to merge the two crews in one movie - badly done.

also it wins hands down for me for the truly aweful decision to kill captain james T kirk....... on a poxy bridge. enough said.

While all of the BnB films are bad, Nemesis was just appalling. Stupid plot, unmotivated acting, and filled with gimmicks and rip-offs, such as the Excalibur rip-off, where clone-picard pulls himself down the pike. Appalling. This movie was defiantly low-brow and insulting to movie-goers.
