Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This spectacular sequel to X-Men outdoes its predecessor in virtually every way, presenting viewers with a dizzying array of thrills while further developing previously established characters, introducing new ones, and setting the stage for an explosive conflict to come.

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This spectacular sequel to X-Men outdoes its predecessor in virtually every way, presenting viewers with a dizzying array of thrills while further developing previously established characters, introducing new ones, and setting the stage for an explosive conflict to come. Threatened in the first film with genocide, the mutants and their advocates -- unofficially led by Dr. Charles Xavier Patrick Stewart -- find their right to privacy threatened by the newly proposed Mutant Registration Act, which enemies like General William Stryker Brian Cox hope to use as a means of tracking and eventually eliminating them. The noble Xavier and his team of X-Men still labor against evil, while the sinister Magneto Ian McKellen -- although imprisoned -- remains bent on subjecting humanity to mutant control. It wouldn't be easy for any director to do justice to this film's multiplicity of characters, relationships, and subplots, but director Bryan Singer is growing into the challenge: He hurls the viewer headlong into the narrative, which zips along at breakneck speed and pauses only to introduce such new characters as Pyro Aaron Stanford and Iceman Shawn Ashmore, who falls for the beautiful but deadly Rogue Anna Paquin. Halle Berry, returning as the weather-controlling Storm, doesn't get as much footage as she probably deserves; nor does James Marsden as Cyclops or Rebecca Romijn-Stamos as Mystique. But Famke Janssen's Jean Grey is showcased and plays a pivotal role in the proceedings, while Alan Cumming has a showy supporting part as the Scripture-quoting Nightcrawler. Judged on the basis of eye-popping special effects and spectacular action sequences, X2 would be an eminently worthwhile sequel, but the emphasis on characterization and underlying plea for tolerance make it more than a typical popcorn movie. As comic-book movies go, this one is, well, X-cellent in every way.
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
X2 sparkles with a lightness of spirit that was missing from X-Men.
Washington Post - Michael O'Sullivan
The fantastic and at times deliciously nihilistic world of X2 is fully, believably three-dimensional.
