Summary: This was an interesting sequel to the first film and no doubt that it had much more story to it considering the first one was merely a development on the characters. This gave us some more action combined with better character development, possibly better story development, but what I must mention...
Summary: The first movie is good, but this is the best of the three. Good story, good acting and some neat special affects set this movie apart. The cast was really able to shine now that all the characters were introduced and the movie could focus on stroy. One of my top 5 comic movies without question.
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.
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.
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.
