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.
agreed-also,Trek has done straight action stuff from long before Abrams came along
"Balance of Terror"
"Best of Both Worlds"
Wrath of Khan
Star Trek First Contactn
