I guess so. They can do whatever they want now, and they do it.
This is one of the things I noticed about Gravity. It quite deliberately takes "breaths," and the surrounding action is much more striking for it.

This is how you'll know genuinely good action filmmakers henceforth. Restraint. (I'd put TDK right on the cusp of this. It's a major motivator for the "relentless action beats" style of filmmaking, but has a purpose for the pace it sets -- conveying the anarchic progression of a Joker rampage -- that imitators don't have.)
