Actually it jumps straight into the worst uncanny valley I have ever experienced. She doesn't blink! The eye twitch is there, but not blinking. Kinda weird too since it clearly supports this. Did the actress have a supreme death-stare ability or what?
Right at the beginning she blinks a couple of times and she has her eyes closed for a full 15 seconds before she starts her 30 seconds "intense speech" bit (with the texture change); can't say that I find anything weird with that (also not different from any staring contest). ...or did you not notice that it's the in-game model from the start
(you can see Melina, the actress, and her setup for full 4 seconds at the very end).
Besides I found it already pretty convincing in the first Hellblade game, though not perfect, so it can only get better with the newer tech
