For my taste MTV speed was much too fast.
I agree. But the thing about the Chekov scene was that he never entered a turbolifft. He ran out of the iBridge and into a corridor and down the hall to the transproter room. At the rate Kirk and Sulu were falling, he only had seconds to get to the transporter control. The pacing for that particular scene was probably real time.
