It's undoubtedly a low point in the movie series as a whole... arguably, the lowest; at least, I'd find it easier to defend "Insurrection" or even "Nemesis" than I would this one.
The main problem, I think, is massive self-indulgence on the part of William Shatner, making his character look super-cool at the expense of... well, just about everything and everyone else, really. Most of the other series regulars are just caricatures of themselves, and the overall idea behind the story is... pretty thin. At best.
It's not the worst movie I've ever seen, but I have seen some real doozies in my time... basically, your life will not be in any way incomplete if you don't bother with it.
