Excerpt: ‘X2: X-Men United’ is the 'Empire Strikes Back' of the 'X-Men' trilogy. It's the one where they got it right -- the story, the characters, the look, the feel, the tone and the texture. The right balance of light and dark is in place, there is a wide spectrum of classic X-Men heroes and villains on display, and the emotional notes the narrative hits are the right mix of the interpersonal and the political.
Excerpt: X2 takes off from X1 and delivers with bigger, better and more. Bigger villains, better story and action and more mutant goings ons. Introducing the Germanic Kurt Wagner, the purple transporter. This time Good Mutants must team with Bad Mutants to collectively battle Evil Humans. Lots of twists and turns and only a couple low key questionable moments but, overall, this film moves with good pace and stellar action. Wolverine of course, steals the show and is superb.
Excerpt: X2 is funnier and has a better storyline and more action compared to the first film. There are some really stand out scenes in this movie. The picture quality is much better than the first as well. The AQ is superb, there's a good balance between action and dialogue.
Excerpt: Sequels get a bad rap but in recent years, we've actually had some very good ones: Spider-Man 2, The Bourne Sequels, Mission: Impossible III, The Dark Knight just to name a few. X2 is no exception. To be short and sweet, X2 is the movie X1 should've been. The action, storyline and CGI were all improved. Just an overall better, more complete movie.
Excerpt: X-Men 2 was one of the first great comic book movies since Superman 1 and 2 and remains a favorite of mine. The action is bigger and better in this outing of the X-Men, every mutant gets a chance to show us what they got and in every case it's great. There are fantastic sequences with Jean, Nightcrawler, Wolverine, a dogfight, and more. The last dramatic sequence of this movie has been one of my favorites of its type since this movie was released.
Excerpt: As what everyone else has said this is the best x-men movie out of the three. It has a perfect mix of story and action, yes this movie is not as great as some of the more recent comic book movies, but this one certainly laid the groundwork for them. the picture quality on this release is rock solid. This is the best that the movie can look, the audio is just reference quality.
Excerpt: X2 continues the storyline asking the question"are mutants a threat to humans?" The xmen now being introduced in the 1st film leads more on screen time for action and super hero powers to take advantage of the Bluray PQ! The PQ was amazingly clear and crisp as the 1st xmen movie set the stage for. The sound quality is just as amazing once again the truest way too enjoy a movie!
