X2: X-Men United Reviews
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The aesthetics still don't match it's intellegence thanks to terribly gimicky world-building and special effects.
VERDICT: What an enjoyable and unusually emotionally-intellegent movie. X2 ticks all the boxes and seals the deal for the comic book movie. I love it.
X2 is more character-driven than the first installment, and is more emotionally involving as a result.
Greater, more epic action, a taut script, and solid performances, even if the characters dont get developed, you will barely notice with all the comic nuances and witty banter.

The sequel is even better than the first movie, this film was great, it had an absolutely terrific plot with amazing acting and beautiful action sequences!
Hugh Jackman was the stand out once again!
Overall score: 8/10 (Great).
As a fan of superhero movies, I'd probably rate this a 9/10
but from a filmmaking & casual movie go-er's perspective (Meaning realistic) I'll stick with an 8/10, Don't expect it to be better than its predecessor, just expect a good follow-up.
