So is Angela Bassett. She's a little bit shorter than Halle.
Angela looks stronger but Halle has a slenderness that doesn't make her look a stumpy as Angela Bassett would have done against the 6ft Famke.
If built-ups are good enough for Tom Cruise then they're good enough for Miss Bassett!
Failing that, or even better, Pam Grier! Halle is too gamine, she didnt give the impression of power that I was expecting.
That first Xmen film paved the way for all the superhero films since but at the time effects hadn't quite caught up with whats achievable now.
