Set in a futuristic world where humans live in isolation and interact through surrogate robots, a cop is forced to leave his home for the first time in years in order to investigate the murders of others' surrogates.
When a cure is found to treat mutations, lines are drawn amongst the X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier, and the Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto.
A robotic warrior from a post-apocalyptic future travels back in time to protect a 20-year old drifter and his future wife from an most advanced robotic assassin and to ensure they both survive a nuclear attack.
A human-looking indestructible cyborg is sent from 2029 to 1984 to assassinate a waitress, whose unborn son will lead humanity in a war against the machines, while a soldier from that war is sent to protect her at all costs.
Dr. Bruce Banner, thanks to a gamma ray experiment gone wrong, transforms into a giant green-skinned hulk whenever his pulse rate gets too high. Meanwhile, a soldier uses the same technology to become an evil version of the original.
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. Written by

Shinzon is an actual Chinese name, chosen by writer John Logan as it continues the trend of Chinese names for Romulan characters (as well as the new Reman characters). Logan admitted that he has absolutely no idea what the name actually means. See more »

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.
That's enough! The decision has been made. The military does not ...

Both the letter 'R' in 'Trek' and the second 'E' in 'Nemesis' are presented backward within the words in order to introduce the idea of a mirror image. See more »
As far as I can remember, no Star Trek-Movie got passed the critics without being called "a shame for the francise" or "the worst trek movie ever". Especially the trekkies are very conservative and don't accept any new ideas.
"Nemesis" has some problems in it: the scenario was taken out of nowhere and has nearly no relationship to the TNG-Series or the other movies. The hints given by some characters like Janeway or Shinzon ("like your borg friends would say...")do not help, they're making it even worse. Also, there is not much room for the other characters like Geordi or Crusher, even Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis are not allowed to make much of their roles. The worst of all is the telephatic duell between Deanna and the reman viceroy: it just DOESN'T FIT into the Star Trek universe!
But after all, "Nemesis" is not that bad. Steward and Spiner are doing a wonderful job, Tom Hardy is also good as Shinzon and Ron Perlman adds another dying character to his filmography. The battle between the "Enterprise" and the "Scimitar" is even better than that between the original ship and the "Reliant" in Star Trek II.
For me, the most important thing about this movie is the ending: There will be no more movies with the TNG-Crew, so it was very important for me to see how their story continues. And it does continue, the journey to the final frontier goes on. And that just isn't that bad!
