'cause he wasn't military, not even close. He was just a guy with a great big ship. Their approach was spot on.

I kinda liked that. It was almost a Jekyll and Hyde kinda personality.

Especially how he "casually" impaled the Kelvin's captain.
Definitely a Romulan driven to the brink of a psychotic breakdown; giving him an almost unpredictable nature; one moment he's casually greeting Pike via ship to ship, right after he just attacked.
Or quietly letting his first officer question a captive before turning him into paste.
Quite the implulsive fellow, really.

I didn't care for it.
I sounded very unserious for what he was doing.

Romulans are just Vulcans who are emotional. Nero was a simple miner who went after vengence, not a seasoned Romulan officer.

Well, his planet blew up, he was in prison for 25 years, so his attitude was justified I think.

He just not care about being formal, he had a plan, and wanted to get it done.

I completely agree with Zardoz, he wasn't apart of the Romulan military he was a miner for goodness sakes, but he was very serious and emmotional despite the fact

It was jarring because it was unexpected. He didn't sound like the typical baritone, threatening agressor. He sounded down right friendly. Of course he was never a military man. He was a businessman, a miner (not minor).
