I don't think we could have expected any more of a Sentinel, given that we had the cure plot and the Phoenix plot already fighting for space in the film.

The problem with the scene was the execution. The way Colossus encased Rogue in his steel form without having his lifeforce drained. And the way Wolverine awkwardly appeared behind the Sentinel head, with no evidence of his having fallen to the ground with the head.

Using DoFP as the inspiration for that scene indicates the flawed thinking behind The Last Stand: to cram in as much as possible. Hence, Beast, Angel, Dark Phoenix, Juggernaut, Multiple Man, Callisto, Morlocks, Psylocke and, at earlier points in the development, Gambit (looking so wrong in the picture we did see), Omega Red, Dazzler and lord knows who else! It's no wonder Gambit, Omega Red and Dazzler were cut and Psylocke relegated to a cameo role!
