Re: 'X-men: DOFP' Official CAST Thread (announcements and discussion)
The "Halle sucks" movement is tired and we've all moved on. As for the accent, I don't think it was her fault. She had so few lines (much of them really short as well), that I really can't imagine that she had an vocal coach at all.
To put this discussion into perspective, I'll use Halle and Anna as an example. IMO Storm and Rogue were the characters that were farthest from their comic counterparts. I would also say Halle and Anna were on par with each other in terms of acting (Halle was kind of dull, but Anna overacted too many of her scenes). The difference was that Anna had a role that was meaningful and so she was loved. Halle had a role that was lame AND meaningless and so she was sent to burn at the stake.
