Dan O'Neill90 - Despite some plot holes, X2 is a total improvement from the first showing a lot more action, special effects, and a more deeper and darker story-line that will take you by storm (pun intended) and won’t let you go until the credits are up.

Sir M Hayes XIV85 - awesome follow up. I was so excited how it ended setting up a third... and then?

Drezzy80 - one of the best comic book movies ever made, showing a large amount of the mutants we all know and love while actually taking the time to give most of them some backstory and drama
Bryan Lienesch78 - It does what a sequel should: it builds off the original story. This is not a new adventure for this band of Marvel Superheroes, but rather the same adventure extended.
