'Star Trek: Nemesis' - Movie Review

"Nemesis" was the last of the Next Generation movies. We start with political violence on Romulus, followed by the wedding of Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Troi (Marina Sirtis) ... which allows them to drag everyone, including the infamous Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton) out of retirement for short appearances. But then we set up the real story: a human clone of Captain Picard called Shinzon (Tom Hardy) has taken control not only of Romulus's sister planet Remus, but also Romulus itself - and, while claiming a desire for peace with Earth, seems hellbent on causing problems.

Classic Star Trek in a few good ways and all the bad ways. They use a trip to a planet to collect the parts of another version of Data (Brent Spiner) as an excuse to have a dune buggy chase. No explanation is ever given why they were attacked, but hey, it's cool - we got to drive around in dune buggies and shoot off big guns.

Hardy worked fairly hard as Shinzon, but you know shit's gonna explode and the good guys will win. The Next Generation left us no memorable films, only forgettable tripe like this one.
