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.
