When a failed assassination attempt occurs on the President's (Cotter Smith) life by the teleporting mutant Nightcrawler (Alan Cumming), it's Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and his School for Gifted Youngsters who are targeted for the crime. While Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) and Storm (Halle Berry) try and locate the assassin, Cyclops (James Marsden) and Xavier (also known as 'Professor X') seek answers from their old foe Magneto (Ian McKellan) in his glass cell...Little do they know they're walking into a trap set by the villainous William Stryker (Brian Cox), a mysterious governmental figure that figures into Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) secretive past, along with information about the X-Men's operation, supplied by Magneto through a mind-controlling agent. Meanwhile Wolverine, just home from a failed mission to regain his memory, is in charge of the students when a crack-commando team led by Stryker infiltrates the school by order of the President. With a mansion full of young, powerful mutants and the ferocious Wolverine in babysitter mode, can he defend the school against the one man who can answer his questions? What roles do the sinister Mystique (Rebecca Romijn-Stamos) and Lady Deathstrike (Kelly Hu) have in all of this? Why does Stryker want Professor X and his Cerebro machine? With the war between humanity and mutants escalating to extremes, can the rest of the X-Men trust their old foes to help them? Director Bryan Singer returns and raises the stakes in this sequel to the highly lauded 2000 adaptation of Marvel Comics' X-Men.

X-Men 2 felt like comic book movies should. Next to Iron Man 2, this has to be one of Marvel's best creations on the big screen. Too bad the 3rd installment flopped. Highly recommended buy for your collection here!
You really don't have to try very hard to make a sequel to X-Men better than the first one. The first one was too short to develop very much character depth and there was too much plot to develop much action. It was merely an introduction to what was to come later in the film series. In this film, we learn more about the characters and learn more about what is to come much later in the X-Men story. However, like the first film, action is a minor thing compared to developing storyline. Somethings however, like the storyline, are never fully explained. Another problem of mine is the fact that Gambit is still not featured in this film. And some characters in the story are severly cut down. Cyclops and Professor X's running time are severly cut compared to the first film. Cyclops only makes a few brief appearances in the film. Part of this is for the new characters that come--Nightcrawler, Lady Deathstrike, Pyro, Iceman, and General Stryker. If yous look closely, you can see Hank McCoy (future Beast) on a T.V set in a political debate in one scene.Toad and Sabretooth are a complete mystery. Their fate is a question since they don't appear in this film. The acting is so much better in this film than the previous and there are no stupid lines spoken. We can actually care about the characters because we know more about them in this film. If you liked the first one, you will definitely love this sequel.
I'm not someone who is a fan of the comic-book-to-movie genre, and I refused to see the first X-Men . A friend drug to the theater to see this one and I couldn't believe what I was missing! Right after I got out of the movie, I borrowed the first X-Men from my friend cause I couldn't wait to see it! Very well done, great special effects, and extremely entertaining. This is definitely one I'm adding to my collection. Soooo...when does the next one come out? :)
This movie surpassed the first one. There are a lot of cool special effects, new characters, and the story line is very good. You should by this movie. By the way, pay attention to Wolverine
wow this movie was soo good! I am a huge X-men fan, always have been, and let me tell you, this movie does not disappoint! Never a dull moment! I think it is better then the first, but they were both soo good, i cant tell!
Being a huge x-men mark for the longest time I might be expecting too much from a 2 hour movie. That being said, I felt there were a lot of holes left in the plot and in some cases, just the opposite where certain storylines were definitively tied up too soon. Of course I am basing this on future movies being generally based on comic storylines, if this ends up not being the case (ie never going the phoenix route for example) then my review might be higher.
I've always loved X-Men. I was a big fan of the original cartoon series. When the first movie came out, I confess I was a bit disappointed. I didn't really expect X2 to be anything special. Boy, was I surprised! It was much better than I expected.
This movie sucked! The first one at least had an easy to understand story, this one was really confusing. There is not much action and the fight scene that I was anticipating was so short! This movie is terrible.
Better than the first one. Great action.
This was an awesome movie with tons of action! All of the characters have wonderful talent in this movie. This movie also has an unexpected ending. I can't wait until X3.
This movie was totally awesome. Nightcrawler was amazing. HE is one of my alltime favorite characters.
I missed this in theatres but everybody was saying the movie was great so I got the DVD and watched it and it was so boring! The plot was confusing, and Cyclops was barely in it. I think the first one was better.
This movie just flat out rocks. Despite a few differences, like one part wolverines hair parts to the right, and in the next scene it parts to the left. And in another scene Xavier walked. He cant walk, he's a parapalygic. And Nightcrawlers color of blue was off, it was too dark of blue. And wolverines claws are 15 inches in the comic, and in the movie it appeared they were only 13 inches long. I really hope brian Singer corrects these mistakes in X3. My mom didnt like it, and wouldnt let me watch it at first. But I have been collecting the comics for over 20 years. Keep it going X men!
I saw this movie twice in the theatre and look forward to owning it. It was never dull. And it makes you look forward to the future movies. I think they did a wonderful job with this movie.
I bought these for my man, thinking he'd enjoy them - turns out he has no interest in them. Thinking that I'd have no interest in them, especially when the hands got angry, I watched then and enjoyed them very much. I'm now waiting for the newest one to come out on DVD.
the first x-men was ok but x2 was amazing wolverine kicked butt and so did nightcrawler, it had much better action then the first movie, i hope the 3rd one has more with colossus
One word. BAD!!. Don't waste your money. I rented it, and it was a drag to watch. If u are looking for a movie to buy and never saw this, take my word for it, and don't buy it.
I thought this movie was was just long and dull. It had one good scene though and that was when Wolverine fights Deathstrike
I saw this movie and thought it was really cool, nightcrawler was one of the best characters. Although not being my favorite in the trilogy I still give it thumbs up!
This movie is awesome. There is a part that is confusing but then I get it. IT IS A GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT FANTASTIC movie!!!!
it was great i especially enjoyed the special effects each character had. i enjoyed the first one but the second one was da bomb.....................KAAAAABBBOOMMM!!!!!!
