Also Rtings gives this tv a horrible rating on sports due to motion blur. Is it that bad? Is it present during action movies?

Rtings does not try to push you in the wrong direction they tell it like it is,if you want better refresh rate and better motion blur check out the reviews on the Vizio P Model.
You can also google search the 2016 Vizio P Model on You Tube.Good Luck!
I own a M55-C2, and I have no issues with sports. The review on the 2015 model was prior to better firmware that is out now. Having said that, here is how I would decide?
Do you need an Over the Air tuner?
If so, purchase the 2015 Model. If not, I'd consider either the new 2016 M or P series.
In addition to Dolby Vision capability, the new models have more local dimming zones for improved performance. The P series is more expensive, so you may consider the new M series if wide color gamut is not that important to you. (If you mostly watch over the air or cable for example)
The 55" size in the new P series is an IPS panel. (vs. a VA panel) IPS has much better viewing angle, but contrast is not as good as VA. Users of the new 55" P series with VA, report excellent black levels due to the increased local dimming zones. So... the usual knock on IPS is mostly negated due to the improved local dimming performance.
I'm very pleased with my 2015 55C2. My only knock is due to my room layout. I'd be better off with IPS, and my TV has a 55" VA panel, so off angle is tough. Last year, the IPS would not have been a good option for me due to the lower contrast, but most owners who have the new 2016 55" P series are very pleased even when viewing in a dark room. That's a pretty strong testament to the stronger performance of local dimming in the new models.
