Shinzon is a good idea for a villain. An evil clone of Picard from the Romulans. And he's played by Tom Hardy! It's nice to finally use the Romulans as the main villain in a movie, though it is unfortunate that they decided to invent the Remen race to do it.
Cloning was already an overused theme at this time and the result is ulgy: a bald cybergoth version of Hayden Christensen.
The Remans are the main villain, not the Romulans. They are this stupid character who provokes the curse by this dumb Coup d'État. Shinzon had all the reasons of the world to be insane and absolutely not on their side.
