The music in this film was very awesome! As soon as i heard the opening scene white house chase music, i knew it was Mozart's work! The rest of the music was very good and fit in with the scenes they were put to. A must have soundtrack!

X-2 is the coolest movie. I just saw it right after school let out. It was more amazing than the first one. The music selection for the movie couldn't have been better. I haven't bought the CD yet, but by judging the movie and the background music, the soundtrack is gonna ROCK!

Within the first few seconds of Bryan Singer's "X2", we hear a fast-paced, pulse-pounding theme that gets our hearts pumping and prepares us for the thrill-ride ahead. Only one problem... Where the hell is that theme for the rest of the score? John Ottman, a regular composer for Singer's films, offers a very adventurous theme that matches the tone of the movie, but aside from the first few seconds of the movie and the first minute of the end credits, Ottman provides a very generic, basic score. He also was the film's editor, and actually did a fantastic job with it. Although, I think he really should've just stuck with the editing, or use that theme a lot more...

John Ottman'score for X-Men 2 is...standard fare. The first track, "Suite from X2" is BRILLIANT! The music cracks along for the first minute and a half, then slides into more subtle elegaic territory, before repeating the opening minute's theme at the end of the track. However, the rest of the score fails to keep up to the high standard set by the first track. Cue some rather corny titles ("Storm's Perfect Storm" & "Sneaky Mystique")and the package as a whole may appear to be a letdown. "Mansion Attack" and "Getting Out Alive" have some inspired bombastic moments but they suffer from lengthy lulls, causing some listeners to descend into boredom. The theme from the very beginning of the score isn't repeated until the very end with the final track, "We're Here to Stay". The bulk of the score is more subtle, beautiful music ("Finding Faith"). "Cerebro" doesn't have quite the same "umph" factor that the "Cerebro" track from Michel Kamen's X-Men score. Sadly, Morzart's Requiem isn't included in this package. Compared to most summer blockbuster scores, X2 stands head and shoulders above them but when compared to Superman's, or Batman's or Spider-Man's respective scores, X2 falls kinda flat. Still, the first track is worth the price of the CD.
