Quotes: Bad Bad Acting
"By the way, I call him 'Triple H' and not, 'Arlo Jayne' because while watching, not for a second could I suspend my disbelief that the main character wasn’t Hunter Hearst Helmsley. The Game shows less emotional range in this entire film than in a typical promo, displaying approximately three emotions: cool and collected, slightly perturbed, and in physical pain. (And even then, there’s not a whole lot of difference among the three. Quick, try to guess what he’s doing in this scene. Give up? The correct answer is, 'getting shot.')"

Chris: Magneto’s 'whoops, you’re human now, l8er boo' reaction to Mystique getting shot is completely at odds with his characterization.
Matt: McKellen’s face when he tells Mystique she’s not “one of us” anymore, like this is the movie Freaks, has the weirdest expression he’s had in one of these movies. It’s the first time he doesn’t know how to play something.
Chris: He just falls back on a little thing he likes to call “The Evil Gandalf” and calls it an afternoon.

Hibiki: *walking like a robot, with small circular eyes*
Kanade: *completely natural* Hey, Hummy. Where were you before coming here?
Hibiki: *monotone, with straight mouth* Did you do anything suspicious?
Kanade: !! Wait a moment, Hummy! *ran off with Hibiki* What was that acting!? That was so shady that she'll figure it out instantly!
Hibiki: I can't help it! I suck at lying!
Kanade: Can't you do something about it!?
Hibiki: I'm trying my best!
