Some parts were quite confusing, eg. Data's reaction to Picard's Best Man speech, and the having-a-laugh-at the-android's-expense stuff. Not at all like other Star Trek movies, as Picard would never put the Enterprise crews lives at risk, but he gave the command to fly it straight into the Scimitar. Tom Hardy was rather good, and I had no idea Ron Perlman was the Viceroy until it was pointed out. Some of the acting is a bit wooden, and the plot was a bit thin, but it was entertaining and enjoyable none the less.
I really enjoyed the movie and thought "wow, trekkies will probably love this one." I couldn't have been more wrong after reading some of the fan base reactions to it. After reading a few reviews it became glaringly obvious that somehow I'd viewed it solely as a popcorn movie without even noticing. After the initial viewing it turned into the mess that so many claim it to be. It is rather insane just how many character holes there are in the movie as the same characters you've come to know and love turn into caricatures of themselves that are sometimes unrecognizable.
I think the space battle is epic though, I always wanted something like that just once in Star Trek but I was kind of bamboozled by it and initially forgot about its glaring flaws.
Though it is essentially a hybrid of Star Trek II and VI, Nemesis also brings something different to the table. Concepts of "nurture or nature" are ever prevalent in the Picard contra Picard and Data's quest for humanity. The uplifting message is reached in the end and it gives fitting closure to the series. But I will never understand why it is so detested.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
