The "Abrams movies are dumb action flicks" chant gets tiresome. Anyone whose watched them without preconceived notions about what Star Trek is, knows this simply isn't true.
The Abrams films hold up quite well when compared with what the franchise has produced before.
I for one was looking forward to the Abrams film when I saw the trailers. I will admit I thought it was a risk producing what is essentially a remake but this didn't put me off going to see it. The problem is that they aren't very good. More thought into plot rather than action might have changed my mind.
