45. X2

              I would just like to state my professional blogging opinion. X2 might just be one of the best sequels of all time. It is right up there with all the others that have taken what is best about the original , expanded it and continued the story line in a way that is not just refreshing but superior to the first one. Just like the wonders that are Return of the Jedi, Dark Knight and Dumb and Dumberer: X2 is one fantastic  movie.
                And let me go on to state this movie has one of my favorite, if not my number one favorite, opening sequences of all time--Nightcrawler in the white house.  Amazing. Every time I see it I can't help but just get so pumped watching this.  It was absolute genius on Bryan Singers’ part to start the film off in such an awesome way. Sets the tone perfect for what  is to come in the movie about William Stryker’s attempt to rid the world of mutants.
                Like I said earlier X2 does a great job continuing the story of the first Xmen film.  While a lot of the movie centers around Wolverine. The other mutants get a chance to shine.  In fact you find yourself wanting more and more to see the lives of these mutants. I think they should make a movie just about wolverine.  He He. The only shame about this movie is that it’s the only time we get to see Nightcrawler.  He is not featured in X-Men 3: The Final Stand.  

Final Verdict: X2 is not only a good sequel but just a plain good movie. Worth keeping.


  1. if you love the X-MEN as a comic book franchise, and you love superhero movies...this is an awesome movie for you. Totally agree with Jimmy, great opening sequence and great followup story to the first X-Men movie. I think the actors do a very good job portraying the comic book superheros, I would love to see more of Xavier's School. But very exciting , action packed movie. I think it is worth owning, plus the first movie, also.

  2. Best opening sequence ever, and also one of the best sequels. Comic book movie sequels are getting better all the time. I really have nothing bad to say about this movie, except as with all of them I think Halle Berry was a bad pick for storm. Oh well.

  3. yeah yeah yeah! I love this movie! The opening scene is my favorite part too.

  4. @ Matthew, you are so right on everything you said.

    I remember seeing this movie at a 12:01 showing on a school night as a senior in high school. It was awesome and all I talked about for the next few days. Then my high school was hit by a tornadoe. So it really doen't matter that my parents let me go to the movies and stay up all night instead of doing all my homework and senior projects that were do in a week.

    The one thing about the X-Men movies that I hate is how they make Cyclops look like a little girl. I mean come on, did the writers of the movies even read the comics. There would be no X-Men without Cyclops.

  5. Now I really want to watch this movie too! I have seen it and thought it was great but I don't remember the opening scene! :(
