Both movies really are similar in that they ruin a classic villain by ramming them into an action piece that really doesn't capture Star Trek. As stand alone action movies they're both alright, but the acting is forced and the characters are different. Picard and Kirk in these movies are both cliche action heroes and not the thoughtful captains they were in TOS/TNG.
I'm sorry but what version of TOS where you watching where Kirk didn't have action hero moments? Because its sounds pretty different form the one I watched.
