Storyline

Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew return to battle a chilling new adversary... that just happens to hold a shocking link to Picard! In the wake of a joyful wedding between William Riker and Deanna Troi, Picard receives another reason to celebrate: the Romulans want peace and the captain will be the Federation's emissary. But as the Enterprise heads towards Romulus, a brilliant villain awaits--harboring a diabolical plan of destruction and an unimaginable secret that will give Picard his most fearsome challenge. Shinzon, a Romulan-made clone of Picard, wants nothing less than the conquest of the Romulan Empire, the complete destruction of Earth and the death of Captain Picard himself.

Quotes

[first lines]
Commander: Senators, consider the opportunities for the Empire. At last, the destinies of the planets Romulus and Remus will be united. Shinzon of Remus is offering us a chance to make ourselves stronger than ever before. It would be madness to reject it. I beg you not to let prejudice or politics interfere with this Alliance. By joining Shinzon's forces with ours, not even the Federation will be able to stand in our way.

Not as bad as ST V, but almost
3 March 2005 | by (Lansdowne, VA) – See all my reviews

As action movies go, this one is OK; but there is more to making a good movie than action. The list could be extensive, so I'll just confine myself to two major concerns about this movie.

It's one thing to portray right and wrong, good guy and bad guy; it's quite another to portray the dark and sinister. I don't like the dark and sinister feel of this movie. It takes the human out of the flick and introduces the demonic. I doubt that Gene Roddenberry would have approved. And perhaps this is what is at the heart of why most reviewers don't like the movie.

Some of this comes from the destruction of NCC 1701-D in Generations. There was a clean ship. It had the look and feel of something that might actually fly. It felt good. It inspired the viewer. But in an ill conceived attempt to save money, or just for the sake of technology, they did away with the model and replaced it with a computer graphic that was clearly a cartoon caricature of a ship that no one could have any respect for. And if that weren't enough, they changed the interior from a bright, vibrant alive, feel good color to a dark, dull interior that always depressed me whenever I looked at it.

Second, I have never been able to accept how Picard always seems to breakdown at just the wrong time, in a way that no trained starship captain would. I refer here to the fact that near the end of the movie when his crew is only one minute away from certain death, he remains frozen and incapable of action after watching Shinzon die. A man does not rise to the command of a starship with a flaw like that. And if he did, he certainly would not survive as long as Picard did without gaining the experience necessary to put his personal feelings aside at times like that. He should not have been so traumatized. In reality, any Captain worth his salt would have pushed that corpse aside, found his weapon, and done what he had to do to save his crew. The whole scene reminds me of his over emotional outburst during the trial in the Farpoint Station episode. That is just poor writing, and a lack of feel for the series.

But then this is what I have come to expect from Rick Berman. He was so anxious to put his own brand on the series that he took a winning formula and ruined it. I've heard that Rick once said that the fans deserted the series, but I say no -- it was Rick Berman who broke faith with the fans. He was never in touch with the audience. That is why they left. When he and Brannon Braga took the helm, they cost Paramount a fortune.
