Fair sequel that improves on scope and impact over a lacklustre original
March 19, 2017
X2 does what a sequel should do, the stakes are higher, the action is bigger, and the characters have evolved! X2 is definitely a sequel that improves upon the original!

Grade: A+

This does a rather remarkable job of balancing fan service and not being afraid to take serious risks. The new characters feel planned and not forced. And the returning cast has settled into a strong ensemble.

Slightly better than the first, X2 brings new material, without letting go of the pros of its predecessor.

By far the BEST X-Men film! My Score: 89%

Much more action-packed than the first movie. The mutants were cooler, with Nightcrawler. Overall very cool and good.

X2: X-Men United is action-packed and exciting all the way through, but it is unsure of the messages it is trying to convey in the realms of science, politics, religion, and morality.

One of the best super hero movies ever made!

This movie is a great successor to the original, managing to be better in every way. The characters, the action, etc. all of it is better than the first, and somehow managed to make me care more about all the characters in this movie.

Great action and character moments. Easily the best X-Men movie. It haven't aged a day. Also subtle social commentary.

This was a really tight movie. It expanded and built on the first movie a lot and delivered the goods.

Solidly writen and directed, the second installment in the x-franchise upgraded the best elements from its predecessor, but it also offered a unique view that'll define how this franchise should be handle, with better technicals aspects, performances and a promising further exploration for these chatacters.

With more confident direction, a more ambitious story, and impressively realized action set pieces, X2 is the rare sequel that improves on every aspect of the original - while also working as a great stand alone movie in it's own right.

This movie is not five star. I just don't think it is deserves as much credit as many people give it. After you watch the better X-Men flicks (First Class, Days of Future Past) you will totally forget what this one was about.

Unlike the first film, this one actually stands the test of time. Exciting, ambitious, and socially relevant, "X2: X-Men United" takes its beloved characters and fascinating world to a whole new level. Although it still suffers from the lack of character development, the solid action set pieces and acting make up for its flaws. A rare sequel that is better than the original.

Sometimes, it feels like Bryan Singer is trying too hard to add all the X-Men in one big 2 1/2-hour-long extravaganza. Fortunately, X2: X-Men United is still a film that is even better than the first with some entertaining action sequences and some good solid acting from Hugh Jackman and co. making it an entertaining diversion that will be remembered for paving the way for comic book sequels following Blade II a year prior to this film's release.
