A lot of reviews come down to the same complaints about it "not being Star Trek" which is absurd, none of the movies have truly been Star Trek if we compare to television.
I don't think they're upset that this movie is hardly Star Trek as much as they are upset that this is the only Star Trek we'll ever be getting. Star Trek was really at it's best when it was on television. We got, what? 22-26 stories a year, instead of one story every three to four years? I think a Star Trek series would leave plenty of room for variety instead of non-stop action rehashes of previous Star Trek stories.
I don't really disagree that I'd prefer a television show to movies, but that's a separate issue - CBS are sitting on the rights to the TV show and blocking; not JJ Abrams, Orci, Kurtzman etc
It doesn't make these movies bad in anyway because it's not the television show, I'd much rather watch BOBW than FC but FC is still my favourite movie.
