I think people just want that because it's expected, though. We had enough of an idea of how the people felt in general, never once did I wonder how the people felt about anything. The reason a writer/director chooses to show crowd reactions is to show how the character should feel. Blake and Foley (among others) definitely handle that. It would be superfluously tedious to show it through the people because the point has already been conveyed.
