I gotta say, I think Insurrection gets a bit of a bum rap. It's certainly nowhere near Nemesis.
I liked the performances by F. Murray Abraham, Anthony Zerbe, and Gregg Henry.
I liked the shuttlecraft chase as well. It's no "First Contact", but I'd say on par with "Generations" and, again, considerably better than "Nemesis"
Can't say I agree with you there... Nemesis ain't a classic but for me it's better than Insurrection.
I found no investment in the idea of an insane Picard clone, nor in his desire to destroy Earth (been there, done that).
If conflict had been between the Romulans and Remans themselves, it might've something more original.
I probably consider Nemesis to be the weakest of all the films. Even TMP had some interesting moments, and Final Frontier at least had some camp value.
