Do you just mean fanboys on this particular DOFP forum? I think it's a bit of a stretch to say fanboys are still talking about those sequences today. Maaaaaybe the Nightcrawler attack...
Anyways, I have no doubts about Bryan's abilities to do good action. I like that he is more subtle and doesn't go for 'splosions and the like. HOWEVER, I think he really has missed opportunities to do a good action piece involving the the team together. These are X-Men movies, not some one-on-one Capcom X-Men fighting game.
Ever since the first movie was officially greenlit, I've been waiting for that scene for almost 15 years now. We deserve better than Ratner doing/failing at it haha.
