Don't confuse the messenger for the message. It really is a terrible 3rd act. While I over all hated the film, even I can admit that there were some decent elements in the first and second act before the entire thing goes off the rails and gives us one of the most hackneyed 3rd acts I have seen in the last decade. It really does devolve into self parody. The saddest part is that I can totally picture the writer's room as they "brainstormed" this crap ending giving themselves high fives for how clever they were being about subverting another classic Trek scene instead of trying to actually come up with a new iconic scene. But, I guess the rule of thumb here is that if you can't write a decent movie make sure you drop references to a good movie.
