Nope. The director seems happy with the way those lines were delivered otherwise we would not have seen what we saw or heard what we heard. That's not her fault.
A director can only guide, you can't force a good performance out of someone. She delivered her lines in a wooden manner.
And despite playing an iconic X-Man, despite being contracted to return, they chose not to use her in this film. That decision says it all.
And she wasn't even the original casting choice, anyway.
