The one joy I have reading other reviews here is almost universal consensus of how appalling Jones was. Does make you wonder why they never replaced her. Hopefully she'll get a well-deserved Razzie nom.
I think appalling & a Razzie nom. are a bit extreme.
She wasn't that bad, she was just bland compared to the more colorful personality Emma has in the comic. Jones simply didn't play Emma as the snob she is.

The question is, is that the actor or directors fault.......or is it a little bit of both?
Yeah, appalling might sound a wee bit strong, but maybe has different emotive power this side of pond Still, I'm a nobody next to this guy:

After watching X-Men: First Class, Lost creator Damon Lindelof tweeted his opinion of January Jones' portrayal of Emma Frost.

'Emma Frost’s THREE mutant powers: Telepathy, Transformation to Solid Diamond and last but not least, Sucking at Acting,' he wrote.

Usual Suspects is a good film not a great one. It's almost like they thought of the twist ending and then built the movie around it.
off-thread, but thought of line-up image first and twist came much, much later. There's a couple of great docs about Suspects that explain the whole creative process of film...
