I'll agree that she wasn't good, but I put at least half the blame on Bryan.

It's pretty obvious that Bryan didn't care for and/or understand the character. As the director, he didn't have Halle act regal or push her to get the accent right (and she had so few lines that it wouldn't have been THAT difficult). He also put her in terrible wigs and gave her some pretty weak (whack) dialogue. In X2, her lines even started becoming stuff like "I gotta shake 'em". Any X-Men fan would know that Storm does not speak like that! These are all problems and responsibilities that lie with the DIRECTOR (and writers).

As for Halle, she could have definitely put in a lot more effort and worked on her line delivery and facial expressions (especially in X1).

A big part of me just really wants to see him AND Halle finally do the character justice.
