For the most part, I didn't actually start the movie with an indifferent attitude, but instead I was actually rooting for it! Everything I didn't like I would try to look at the positives. I kept telling myself it was a good movie. Until, I just gave up. It truly is the most forgettable and bland entry in the series.
First and for most, Insurrection is one of those movies that feels like an extended episode. Problem is, the episode would be barely mediocre if it were …
