I struggle to understand Generations being described as a "bore," though. It's got the destruction of the Enterprise-D, the death of Captain Kirk, etc.
No one acted like they cared about the Enterprise
being trashed and Kirk's death was underwhelming. The film had no emotional hook to it, at least for me.
If I'm not attached emotionally, it doesn't matter how many action set pieces they string together it'll be dull. In my opinion.
