The TNG films fell into a pretty standard cookie cutter pattern. They ALL ended with older people fighting on scaffolding.
GEN - Picard/Kirk/Soran
FC - Picard/Borg Queen

NEM - Riker/Viceroy
There was no variation, at least FC had a great subplot about Zephram Cochrane. None of the films deviated from this bland, played out, low-rent formula.
Trek 2009 followed the very same formula of the TNG movies. Bad guy has doomsday device, and in the climax there are fist fights and shoot outs, and bad guy is stopped using violence.
I agree with these statements.
TMP, III, and VI were all about the plots, II had balanced elements of being an action movie and being a good Trek, and IV was a comedy. And then V is at best laughably ridiculous, but still didn't screw up pre-established continuity as bad as Generations.
