As I said in my previous post, I have zero problems with it being an action movie, and I have no real problems with the characters. I also pointed out that the perception of it being un-Trek like may have more to do with subtle attitudes displayed than the physical level of action or violence.

But this crap about how a movie can be either intelligent OR good action, but not both, really has to stop. There's a large number of well known movies that have been both, so that's empirically BS.

Trek 2009 succeeded because it was a good action film, this is absolutely true. What's groundless is the argument that it was somehow necessary to sacrifice brains in order to do that.
