I think the implication is that plot-holes are the inevitable byproduct of action stories. I think they are the byproduct of writers taking lazy shortcuts to infuse a plot with action and drama, but not that it is inevitable.
Absolutely agreed.

Aliens I think is a good example of an action movie that is not chock full of plot holes, or at least if it does have them, they are pretty hard to detect.
I rewatched the director's cut about a month ago, and just like you said, if it does have them, I didn't notice.

Plot holes in ST XI, or even worse - Prometheus, are basically in your face.

Still, I enjoyed Star Trek, and Prometheus annoyed the living shit out of me.
