John Rogers, one of the writers behind the 2004 superhero movie starring Halle Berry, chimed in with his opinion on the film.
Also full disclosure: I’ve never watched the movie all the way through in one sitting. I skipped premiere night to shoot @jenni_baird audition footage for GLOBAL FREQUENCY. And they’d fired me anyway for, y’know, snark.— John Rogers (@jonrog1) February 24, 2018
