This one is probably one of the best X-Men films they have made. It's an action packed film with awesome action scenes and excellent acting. Hugh Jackman did excellent as Wolverine again, He was born for this part. The rest of the cast did excellent playing their characters, I actually believed that they were these characters. The action scenes were so awesome. The best action scene has to be Wolverine shredding Stryker's men in the mansion. The story had an interesting premise, all the mutants teaming together to destroy Stryker, the man doing awful tests on mutants. The cinematography was neat, a lot of cool shots. Overall, this film is an action packed sequel in the X-Men franchise. Probably one of the best X-Men films to date.


Rating: 8.9/10

Best X-Men movie yet
½ June 11, 2017
Even better then the first! The action is better and it is darker. I like the addition of nightcrawler.

Another great XMEN movie definitely a step up from the
previous movie

Sometimes, it feels like Bryan Singer is trying too hard to add all the X-Men in one big 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.

The effects and story don't hold up years later and X2 has become a bit of a period film.
May 28, 2017
More characters, more depth, better script, better focus, X2 is everything X-Men was, but better in every single way.

Good film. However I think I prefer the first one this is still good though

The movie follows the streets paved in the first chapter, and everything is more or less right. Except from an immense plot hole that it's so unbielievable that I can only think it was a choice of the director not to use it. what I am referring to is in the final part (spoiler allert). The X-Men are escaping from the lab under the dam. The dam is exploding, and what will of course pour out and flood everything. In the team there is a man who can litterally ice everything. Ice, water, you know? Water ices very easily right? Apparently, not for the scriptwriter, that decided to sacrifice Jean Grey to save all the others. (Big facepalm)

Wolverine hit the gym this time and Bryan Singer demanded a script with less Storm electrocuting Toad and more Wolverine just being a badass. It works but is a bit too long.

I liked the story better in the first movie, but this is a good sequel with some great action sequences. The opening scene with Nightcrawler is particularly awesome. (First viewing - Summer 2003 in theaters)

Grade - A-
The best in the X-Men franchise so far, 'X2: X-Men United' has great performances and great direction to overcome a slightly convoluted plot.

It astonishes me how this is still one of the greatest comic book movies ever made.
April 22, 2017
Very great movie, even better than the first one.
½ April 15, 2017
Even better than the original, X2 is a fantastic thrill ride that grabs you and never lets go.
April 11, 2017
This sequel elevates the stakes, with more bigger action set pieces and intense sequences, as well as the introduction to more fascinating characters.
½ April 9, 2017
Great superhero film. Better than the first.
April 4, 2017
X2 is a greatly improved version of the first X-Men film. The story is far better, and all the characters truly come into their own in one of the better movies in the series.
½ March 27, 2017
One of the very first superhero sequels to reach success, X2 further follows the mutants and their themes of alienation. Each character gets time to shine, as well as question actions, loyalties, and consequences. And the action is comic book worthy, even when the stakes are higher than what can be encountered in the danger room. With all that power, Bryan Singer directs an expression of many talents, on-screen and off.
March 20, 2017
Fair sequel that improves on scope and impact over a lacklustre original
