In 'First Contact', i could accept that given Picards history with the Borg. Even still though it seemed far more suited to Picards particular character to be the one on the ground encouraging Cochrane to live up to his legend, while Riker kicked arse in orbit.
Yeah I've always thought that as well. It would have been a lot cooler to see Riker kicking the Borg's ass on the ship instead of Picard. Especially when I think back to what a badass he was during BOBW: "Then take your best shot, Locutus, because we are about to intervene."

I didn't get near the impression that Picard was a thinker from the movies as I did the tv series.

Yes, it's fair. But I'm more interested in drama than action, which probably isn't true of most of the demographic they're aiming at.
I think that really hits the nail on the head. The series was far more dramatic than action-based, but, the films make an attempt at being more action-based. Although Picard is an excellent dramatic character, it seems very unnatural for him to appear as TNG's action hero.

I always thought of that as being Riker's job.
