Really? It makes no sense at all.
There's no continuity from the series. In the show, Picard had already confronted the Borg again and was able to deal with it without turning into a pscyhopath. Remember? The whole movie made no sense, the Borg queen idea was ridiculous, etc.
But the biggest plot hole was the whole idea of the Borg going back in time in the first place. Remember why they wanted to take over the Earth--to assimilate the people and their technology. So they go back in time to destroy the Earth to prevent the thing they want from ever existing? What sense does that make? The Borg weren't supposed to be malevolent or needlessly destructive. Remember the show? They wanted the Enterprise so bad they passed on numerous opportunities to destroy it.
