With the re-releases of the Star Trek films as loaded two-disc sets, it's a bit of a surprise that 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis is only a single disc. Fortunately, Paramount has produced a fine disc that stands on it's own in this lengthy series. The image, framed at 2.35:1 and anamorphic (there is a cropped pan-and-scan version available separately) is nearly perfect. Black levels, which are far more prevalent than in others in this series, are dense and solid, while the use of color is perfectly realized. Detail is very strong in this transfer, and even the purposely washed-out scenes are a direct translation from the screen. Even better is the sound. The 5.1 Dolby Digital track is aggressive throughout, with exceptional use of the surrounds. Directional effects are almost alarming at times and completely effective. As mentioned, it's not a two-disc set, but there's still a number of good supplements added to this title. First up is a scene-specific commentary from director Stuart Baird, who readily admits he's not a Trekkie. In a hushed voice he goes over numerous detail in making the film and offers some interesting insight between lengthy gaps. Cast and crew interviews make up the four featurettes: "New Frontiers," "A Bold Vision," "A Star Trek Family's Final Journey" and "Red Alert! Shooting the Action of Nemesis." These would have been better as one long documentary since individually they feel rather light in content. Next up, at nearly 20 minutes, are some very nice deleted scenes and an alternate (though a bit cheesy) ending, some with introductions by Baird, producer Rick Berman, and actor Patrick Stewart. Finally, along with a decent, but short, photo gallery consisting of production drawings, paintings, and some production shots, are a few home video trailers for other Paramount titles, such as Deep Space Nine and The Hours. Strangely enough, the trailer for this film is not included.

This was an excellent movie but not the way I would have liked to have seen the TNG crew end. The movie was VERY sad and not just the end - the whole thing. I really didn't like how they handled the wedding of Ryker and Deeana, either. And after this movie there is no way the captain didn't need psychological counseling! It would have been a great episode or movie within a series of films, but a terrible way to end :(
Possibly the final Star Trek: The Next Generation Movie is out for those who want to take it home. If you are looking for a lot of special features, don't look here for it is well known that Paramount just doesn't put too many extra stuff on their DVD's. My advice is to wait for the special edition and not to waste it on the first version.
This is one of my favorite Star Trek movies and I reccomend it to all of my friends.
this movie ended the TNG movie series it went out with one big bang!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my god!!! A must see movie, a flawless act for Tom Hardy who plays Shinzon, Pacards clone. If this is the last Ster Trek Generation movie they went out on a good key. This movie pulls you in to the story, you don't feel like your watching it but, in it and interacting with the characters. Once again ''all hail Tom Hardy'' an actor who will one day take over the gramies!
Boring. This movie sucks, don't waste your time. Patrick should have taken the big plunge on the torpedo. And why does anyone care that Wesley was back in the flick? I think they showed him for, like, what? .3 seconds? COME ON GIVE IT A BREAK!
I saw Nemesis opening night and I thought it deserved 4 stars. I am getting ready to buy it on DVD. I love the movie. It was heck of alot better than Generations and better than First Contact. I give it 4 stars.
Finally Star Trek seems to have an open mind about those great, well-known writers and directors. As for special effects and action. WHAT A GREAT COMBINATION! The story between Picard and his nemesis is awesome and Stuart Baird, although very limited in his Star Trek knowledge, uses that to his greatest advantage in creating this movie, which is the best since First Contact and The Undiscovered Country.
Riddled with plot holes, poor character motivation, and horrid cliches -- not just one, but TWO evil twins -- this film was a disappointment in the theaters and doesn't improve upon subsequent viewings. The cinematography and editing may be better than in the two Jon Frakes TNG movies, but a dreadful story and ridiculous villains are this film's true nemeses. Only for completists or people with nothing better to do on a rainy Saturday night.
This new film has it all.From lafs to crying to action.Truly one of the best Star Treks ever!
This movie had eveything! Action, humor, sex and and heaping helping of what makes Star Trek so good.
For a director that never saw Star Trek, this is a well develop film. Hardy plays Picard's clone very well. This goes down as the top 3 trek film ever.
This was by far my favorite S.T. movie...the whole reason for this being Tom Hardy's portrayal of Shinzon. Of course, all of the other characters were their lovable selves, but Shinzon was lovably evil. There were lots of surprises awaiting us in this movie, and I found it overall to be very enjoyable.
this was an awesome movie, it had a cool story and good action, the one thing i didnt like was that they didnt have worf do enough in the movie, in my opinion worf is one the best star trek characters ever and it was almost a waste to put him in this movie, they didnt even explain why he was there, at the end of deep space 9 they had him become the klingon ambassador so why is he all the sudden back on the enterprise, and what was wesley crusher doing at the wedding, i thought they wrote him out of the show in the last season of the series. but the scene where the enterprise rammed the other ship was awesome. it totally bummed me out that they killed data, i just hope they dont make data's retarded look alike become a new data, all in all it was a solid movie, patrick stewart as always was great, and the wedding scene was entertaining especially data's song and dance number
I loved it! What else is there to say? I think both the story and the action even out nicely. Even though Frakes didn't direct this time around, it was still a great effort by Stuart Baird (who previously directed two other films-Executive Decision and US Marshals-both of which I personally didn't enjoy that much). This can be your first Star Trek film/episode you've ever seen and you'd still enjoy OR you could be a die hard Trekkie and love it all the more.
I rented this because I am a BIG Star Trek:TNG fan. I new that there would be a marriage soon. I was disapointed because it seemed to be a story about one person's vengence against another. It had the other members of the crew but they didn't seem to have a big of part of the stroy as in the other movies. The ending was interesting. I will add it to my Star Trek collection.
A great movie filled with action. It has a great plot. If you've never seen it, you should. They kill one main character, and give the Enterprise-E a real beating, but still it is a great movie.
Great movie i saw it in theaters. It was an excellent movie with a suprise ending.
Watched this on DVD with my adult son over Christmas. Decided I needed to add it to my collection.
The problem with the previous two next generation films was a more episodic rather than cinematic treatment. Plus we have never seen Remus before and now we know why! Tom Hardy was great and Marina Sirtis finally got to do more than 'I sense Danger!' She gave the Enterprise her best shot and put the Vice-Roy in his place! One question; do the Romulans have any clues to the Remans telepathic capabilities?
