They share any blame there.
An actor of Marion's caliber should be able to play a death scene and know whether it worked or not.
pretty much this, I'm not really sure how that got a pass and made it into the movie.
For the record though I think she is fine in the rest of the movie. The knife story could have been silly; like something the villain had been rehearsing in front of mirror in case they ever needed it, but I think she pulled it off.
