X2: X-men United 2003


description written by member AJ:

In this sequel to 2000's hit comic book extravaganza X-Men, X2 finds the mutants under attack from the government. As Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) searches for clues about his forgotten past, the villainous General Stryker (Brian Cox)--who himself knows quite a bit of Wolverine's past--launches an all-out war against the mutants at Professor Xavier's (Patrick Stewart) school. Now it's up to the whole team, including Cyclops (James Marsden), Jean Grey (Famke Janssen), Storm (Halle Berry), Rogue (Anna Paquin), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), and newcomer Nightcrawler (Alan Cumming) to save the day...as well as to form an uneasy alliance with evil mutants Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Mystique (Rebecca Romijn).

One is The Empire Strikes Back, the other Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan. There are also those that stand out as film felonies - obvious attempts to cash in on a property...

X2: X-men United Movie Review by Zara (3/12/2007)

The characters are established, the costumes are cooler and Halle was fitted with a better wig. I say GAME ON!

The main reason why I liked this version so much better is because of some of the newer characters added. I was actually quite sad when I found out that Nightcrawler, the very cool dude who moves in whispers of...

X2: X-men United Movie Review by Ash (10/25/2006)

I was a bit disappointed with the weak plot and horrible treatment of the characters in the first X-Men movie. As such, I was expecting X-2 to be equally disappointing, if not more so. Boy, am I glad to be wrong!

X-2 is what the first movie should have been like (ie closer to the comic). We are forever stuck with the...

X2: X-men United Movie Review by AJ (6/5/2006)

As great as the first X-Men is, it's basically just a brilliant warm-up for X2. More than almost any other Hollywood spectacle I've seen, X2 can be uniquely labeled as "big-budget art." It's a big epic with a very large and varied cast of characters, plus with about a bajillion action sequences, but as always, there is...
