I could, but I won't. If the character's portrayal is to be believed, then I, Borg would have ended with him using Hugh as a weapon to attempt the destruction of the Collective as his superiors ordered him to. That is the fundamental problem I have with it. Clearly, it's a Star Trek geek moment for me that I cannot just take the film on its own and say "yes this is a decent yarn," but I think I'm allowed one once in a while ;-).
