Malin Akerman Bangs

03.09.2009

We can all agree that Malin Akerman is a babe. But after watching her performance in WATCHMEN, I'm not so sure about her skills as an actress. Her performance was transparent to the point that everytime she spoke, I envisioned her lines as words on a screenplay. So if she couldn't nail her role as Silk Spectre II, I wonder how she'll fare in an indie drama set in apartheid-era South Africa.

Along with Ryan Phillipe, Akerman will star in THE BANG BANG CLUB a film based on a memoir by Greg Marinovich, who was part of the original Bang Bang club--four combat war photographers whose photographs captured the final violent days of white rule in South Africa. Fellow former Bang Bang Club member Joao Silva will direct the film, which has been adapted by South African documentary filmmaker Steven Silver.

Akerman will star as the photo editor of the club, with Phillipe playing Marinovich, and Taylor Kitsch as fellow member Kevin Carter. The roles of the final two members--Ken Oosterbroek and Silva--have yet to be cast. May I suggest Patrick Wilson and Jackie Earle Haley? On second thought, Akerman could probably benefit from the change of scenery.

Extra Tidbit: Akerman can be seen back when she was a struggling actress trying to make it in Hollywood in the wonderful documentary CAMP HOLLYWOOD.

File me under: Thought she did a pretty good job with Watchmen.

Clearly the Schmoes, including myself, don't understand the hate for her acting skills - I mean she did great and showed off her great bod... (just like in Harold & Kumar, Entourage, The Heartbreak Kid, etc.)

ughhh

Your right on her performance in Watchman Barna, a robot would have brought more emotion and skill to that character.

She should do porn...it's what you all want anyway...admit it. Leave the real acting to people with real talent not just a smokin' bod. DAMN she's hot. Sex sells...it seems to have sold everyone on that awful Watchmen performance.

She was very charming in what was essentially a slightly annoying, bitchy role to begin with.

She's got a great ass and cans to boot..

ya.. i dont get the hate for Ackerman in Watchmen.. i thought she did a good job, and she is pretty hot. I mean, they all pale in comparison to Jackie Earle Haley in that Flick.. but for her role, i thought she was good.

She wasn't that bad in Watchmen. Yeah, she was the weak link in the film, but the other performances ranged from above average to fantastic. I don't get the hate either.

I thought she did a pretty good job as Silk Spectre. Akerman is super hot, and she's a pretty good actress, what more do you want?

It's just a hate bandwagon. I thought she did better than most in her position as babe. I like what other Schmoes gave as examples of actresses whom are worse

If anyone gave a shit performance in this movie it was Goode. Akerman may not be an award winning actress but she got the job done for a movie that in my opinion didn't require too strong of a performance from any of the leading cast. They all could have been over the top and cheesy but they weren't.

On a side note I totally like her as a brunette then a blonde lol.

I don't get the hate myself. Yeah, she's working with essentially, the least interesting character in the book (Compared to the other 5) and working along side 3-Oscar Calibur Actors in Haley, Wilson and Crudup, then there's Morgan and Goode. So naturally, it'd appear is if she didn't come off well compared to them. But fuck that, I think she did a good job and held her own for the most part.

I dont get all the hate either. I think at this point it's just the popular thing to jump on that bandwagon. Then again, nobody is gonna look that great when they're performing alongside a killer job done by Jackie Earl Haley. His performance overshadowed everyonelse's BIG TIME.

Totally disagree

For studies in bad acting, see;
the butchering Kirsten Dunst gave Mary Jane Watson in Spiderman 3,
and what Jessica Alba did to Sue Richards
or- anything that Pamela Anderson has ever done.
Less hate makes the world a better place.

Oh and @sarcastos - don't know if you are, but nitpicking about pretty girls makes you sound like a chick

I personally don't get the near all encompassing hate for her job in Watchmen. I went in knowing that critics were bashing her performance and saying she delivered flat readings all throughout yet only twice did I think her lines sounded cue card read, if you will.

And I've seen tons of these CGI backdrop, over the top actioneers that result (or at least enhance) the flaws of one's acting. Every single participant in Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow gave cringe worthy performances -

And I've seen tons of these CGI backdrop, over the top actioneers that result (or at least enhance) the flaws of one's acting. Every single participant in Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow gave cringe worthy performances - and there were award winners in that. The Star Wars prequels had wood to spare. Etc.

I will agree that some of Akerman's scenes did not flatter her look. The scene where she is walking down the steps with her costume on for the first time reminded me of the balcony scene in Star Wars: Ep3 where lighting or make-up, or something, was causing the usually gorgeous Natalie Portman too look like she was suffering from a physical retardation.

She did a fantastic job in Watchmen. Exactly how I envisioned Silk Spectre II.

This girl is without a doubt one of the worst actresses to make a career for herself i've seen in a long time. What she did in Watchmen made my stomach cringe.

i'm not a film-maker, just a movie-goer.
and i think she did a good enough job, and hot enough for the role.

its not even close as bad as marky mark wahlberg in the happening.
anyone remember THIS performance? ->

I loved Watchmen (graphic novel and movie) but Malin ruined it for me. in the graphic novel Silk Spectre II annoyed me and in the movie the same except i couldn't help but think it could've been casted better. Bad acting and is it just me or did she look like she had a touch of dwarfism/down syndrome in this flick?

to be fair...

the character in the book a lot of the time comes off rather transparent and underwhelming. it's a character that gets a little lost in the novel as well as the movie. or maybe that was just me. not saying she gave the performance of a lifetime, but she did a good job.

People have got to stop ragging on Watchmen, it was the original bad review that made me notice that she was less than skilled as Silk Spectre. Which then evaporated on second viewing after being reassured that it is indeed, a good performance.
