Yes, there were problems--Urban's McCoy is a little too similar to DeForest Kelley's...
That struck you as a problem? I thought it was one of the best things about the movie.
Urban crossed the line between acting and imitation--he didn't seem to be playing Bones as much as he seemed to be imagining how DeForest Kelley would have said the same lines. I didn't find this to be a big problem--there are far, far worse things in film than to see someone channel a classic character--but I found it distracting.
