Movie synopsis
X2: X-MEN UNITED, the remarkable sequel to X-MEN, picks up shortly after the first film's finale. At the White House, a would-be assassin--the acrobatic, teleporting blue mutant Nightcrawler (Alan C******)--menaces the president. Meanwhile, in the Canadian Rockies, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) searches for answers to his mysterious past at the top-secret facility where he received his metallic skeleton and claws. Back at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) and Storm (Halle Berry) instruct students Rogue (Anna Paquin), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), and Pyro (Aaron Stanford), while Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Cyclops (James Marsden) pay a visit to the imprisoned Magneto (Ian McKellen). However, Magneto has a secret weapon in the shape-shifting Mystique (Rebecca Romijn-Stamos). Soon allies and enemies alike will unite to defeat the hate-filled military scientist William Stryker (Brian Cox), who wants to rid the world of mutants. When Stryker launches a ruthless two-pronged attack that leaves the school under siege and Xavier and Cyclops captured, Wolverine and the remaining X-Men must spring to action to save their friends and prevent all-out genocide.Even better than its excellent precursor, X2 delves deeper into the X-Men mythology, introducing new characters and touching on essential storylines from the decades-long run of the Marvel comic book series. Providing larger action-packed set pieces and more advanced special effects, director Bryan Singer further develops the characters of Jean Grey, Storm, Nightcrawler, Rogue, Iceman, Pyro, and Mystique. Each member of the cast breathes vitality into their mutant characters with Wolverine, perfectly portrayed by Jackman, once again the wild heart at the center. A love letter to longtime fans of the comic and an amazingly entertaining movie for everyone else, X2: X-MEN UNITED is that rare breed of sequel that manages to improve on the original in every way.

Editorial reviews

"...A symphony of crescendos and pauses, orchestrated toward a big seat-rattling climax, during which an enormous dam breaks, veins bulge on both villainous and heroic brows, and a lot of computer-generated images pop, wiggle and shimmy to the throb and roar of John Ottman's music..."
New York Times - A. O. Scott (05/02/2003)

"...The cast is full of actors who are fun to watch..."
USA Today - Mike Clark (05/02/2003)

"...It lives in the present, providing one amazing spectacle after another..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (05/02/2003)

"...Hugh Jackman is again in fierce, lupine form as Wolverine..."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (05/29/2003)

...No other film-maker has better dramatised superpowers in action and yet remembered the human cost of all the trickery. X2 is full of double-edged power fantasies that manage a frisson of awe amid the excitement..."
Sight and Sound - Kim Newman (06/01/2003)

"...X2 is 2 good to be 4-gotten. Brisk and involving with a streamlined forward propulsion....One of the unexpected aspects of X2 is the way its concerns seem to be uncannily relevant today..."
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan (05/02/2003)

"...It's shiny pop art with an arch, cultured heart underneath..."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - Daniel Davis (11/01/2003)

Better than the first! Outstanding

It's rule of thumb sequels rarely equal the original. Even when they do, the fans are general a bit jaded, knowing what to expect on the second go around, so even if it is as good, it's not as fresh. Expectations can really hurt a film. Everyone is so excited they often expect MORE, and so are let down no matter how good the film is. So going in, sequels have a hard road. When one is as good it's rare; when it's BETTER that is unbelievable. WEll, believe it - X 2 is even better.

The characters are set, so this film gives the chance to explore them a little deeper. Glad to say the whole cast is back. Super fun to see Gandolf being a bad guy! Ian McKellan is back as Magneto the mutant who sees the destruction of mankind as the only way for the mutants to survive. Patrick Stewart is Professor Charles Xavier, the kindly mentor who has a safe haven for mutants and works for their betterment for all. Back also are Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine; Halle Berry magnificent as Storm; Famke Janssen as Jean Grey and Bruce Davison as Senator Kelly . Also, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos as Mystique, Magneto's new sidekick, Brian Cox (the first Hannibal Lector) as Striker, his mutant killer Yuriko Oyama is played well by Kelly Hu and super addition is Alan Cumming as Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler. The whole cast does a wonderful job.

When we last saw Magneto, he'd been imprisoned within a plastic jail, since any metal can be reformed and used by him. Everyone was happy at the school run by Xavier, while Logan was off trying to figure out his past. The Senator was now a mutant.

After the Nightcrawler attacks the president in a protest for Mutant's rights, Striker is able to pressure the president into a campaign against Xavier's School, playing right into Magneto's plans. Short order, Mystique has Magneto free, but Xavier has been taken by Strike who is trying to manipulate him into killing all the mutants. Thus in a switch, the good mutants must work with Magneto to free Xavier.

It's lightning pace, wonderful effects, great fight scenes and stronger character development. It's just an outstanding action flick that leaves you hungry for X 3!!

X2 Blu-Ray

X2 gets to join that small list of sequels that exceed the originals. The first was deeply flawed, and this installment not only fixes those flaws, but goes beyond them.

The largest flaw of X-Men, was that it lacked character development. Well not only does the sequel develop the original stellar cast, but it adds more characters...who are ALSO developed!!! Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) haunting past is laid out. He has choices to make, discoveries to find, memories to rediscover...Rogue (Anna Paquin) has a boyfriend Bobby/Iceman (series newcomer Shawn Ashmore) and they are both trying to get close to each other, while overcoming Rogue's devastatingly unique talent (for those who don't know she sucks the life from people who make physical contact with her). Jean Grey's powers are growing out of control, and she has to try and contain them, while also finding out why. Not to mention she's tangled in a love triangle with Wolverine and Cyclops (James Marsden). And Mystique (Rebbecca Romijn) is trying to interject herself into that as well. Even professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) seems to be in a rut, the thought of a former student (Michael Reid MacKay) on mind.

Among the newcomers are Pyro (Aaron Standford), a temperamental teen with a flare (HA!) for playing with fire. And maybe joining the brotherhood (Magneto's band of mutant terrorists)...? And Nightcrawler (Alan Cumming), a teleporter, who has deep catholic faith, and nearly (though he doesn't know why) killed the president. And a silent assailant/bodyguard, Deathstrike (Kellly Hu). With some future mutants hinted at (such as Colossus).

The story is also much better this time around, finding a far more radical villain (William Striker, played with uncanny ability by Brian Cox) trying to permanently exterminate mutants. The stakes are high, and it plays out awesomely, featuring truly amazing action sequences along the way (a breath-taking opening assault on the white house; and an intense raid on the mutant school).

There's light humor spread here and there (Wolverine hears a noise, and unleashes his claws on...a cat, who proceeds to lick them), and the atmosphere of the first (a perfect capturing of mutant segregation) is still intact (notable most, when Bobby Drake/Iceman goes to his parents to tell them what he is).

Better on Blu-Ray then DVD, I was surprised as the visual and audio difference.

X-2: X Men United, Reviewed

I bought X-2: X-Men United after seeing X-Men 3 in the movie theatre. I came home so excited that I wanted to see the first and second movies again and just decided to purchase them. I really like X-2 because it is very action packed and also takes the viewer a little bit deeper into the overall plot with Xavier vs. Magneto, and the viewer also finds out about Wolverine's beginnings. The ending totally leaves you hanging and made me excited to see the third movie.

The DVD also has some cool features you can check out as well. Also, in X-2 they introduce a new mutant (my second favorite character next to Wolverine), which helps to keep the viewer interested.

The only thing about X-2 that I don't love is that it seems to go a little long in the middle. The beginning and the end are great and the middle drags just a little. However, if you like the first movie you will definitely enjoy the second one.

Very Entertaining Movie - X-Men United

Review For: X2: X-Men United (DVD, 2005)

This one had really bad word of mouth spread around about it, you really have to watch it for yourself. I enjoyed every minute of it. This one stars Famke Janssen, Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen & Brett Ratner in the Director's chair. There were many knew mutants introduced in this movie including Beast & Angel. I thought Cyclops was done well as was Shadow Kitty. Iceman finally comes of age and enters the fray of battle. I really liked this movie but then again I am a slight X-Men fan.

Great Movie

This is the most interesting of the three X-men movies. It has more characters in it. Along with the return of the main characters like professor x, magneto, wolvarine, storm, ect. We have other new characters one being nightcrawler. Unlike some second part movies this one takes off where the first one leaves off. With wolvarine searching for who is really is. Wolvarine's past comes full force with his present as a figure from his illasive past comes to tear down all professor x has built up to try and make a better world for the mutain world. While the under lieing theme is the changes taking place with in Jean. That leads us form X-men United right into X-men the last stand. X-men united is the tie that bids all three movies. It seamlessly takes us from the start to the finish.
