½ April 15, 2017
Even better than the original, X2 is a fantastic thrill ride that grabs you and never lets go.

This sequel elevates the stakes, with more bigger action set pieces and intense sequences, as well as the introduction to more fascinating characters.

Great superhero film. Better than the first.

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.

Fair sequel that improves on scope and impact over a lacklustre original

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+
March 19, 2017
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.
½ March 19, 2017
Slightly better than the first, X2 brings new material, without letting go of the pros of its predecessor.
½ March 18, 2017
Slightly better than the first one.

By far the BEST X-Men film! My Score: 89%
March 18, 2017
Much more action-packed than the first movie. The mutants were cooler, with Nightcrawler. Overall very cool and good.
March 14, 2017
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.
½ March 13, 2017
One of the best super hero movies ever made!
½ March 10, 2017
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.
½ March 10, 2017
Great action and character moments. Easily the best X-Men movie. It haven't aged a day. Also subtle social commentary.
March 7, 2017
This was a really tight movie. It expanded and built on the first movie a lot and delivered the goods.
½ March 5, 2017
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.
