I think the person commenting on the thread is insinuating that the film/effects/explosions/scale is transcending what Star Trek should be, an essentially character driven piece of moral and philosophical platitudes and notions, with a sci-fi twist.

And Kirk never got his shirt ripped off, got into a fist-fight, or made out with an alien babe in a skimpy costume . . . .
