After Watching This, Roll On X-Men 3
Absolutely happy! That is the only word I can use to describe my feelings
after spending my hard-earned money to see X-Men 2. It was worth every
Firstly, the makers of superhero films such as this have an unenviable task.
They have to please hardcore comic fans and casual movie fans which is no
easy task. And The X-Men-with their forty years of history and
continuity-are perhaps the hardest heroes to put on the big screen. Well,
I've spoken to many hardcore X-fans and casual movie fans and they all
enjoyed it too.
I won't go into great detail about the plot. Let's just say that The X-Men
and their enemy Magneto have to join forces to combat an even bigger threat.
I enjoyed this movie so much because for the first time in years, I didn't
read ANYTHING about the plot or any reviews prior to viewing it. That is why
I'm not going to go into great detail about the plot. Just enjoy
All the favourites are back including my personal favourite Hugh Jackman as
Wolverine (I hope Wolverine gets his own movie franchise one day). The
makers of this movie have done a great job in making sure various characters
get the right amount of screen time. We'd all love our favourites to get
more screentime but with so many X-Men (and women), the producers have to do
the best they can; and they do indeed.
There are a few really great special effects in this movie but unlike some
special effects laden movies, the plot is more important in this movie.
Furthermore, the movie is much deeper and really makes you think. Marvel
comics (and movies) have always been deep and many of the issues have
reflected real life. This movie is about persecution and intolerance of
mutants and reflects many issues from the past and the present such as
Hitler's treatment of the Jews and the different ideologies of Martin Luthor
King and Malcom X. In fact, many longtime X-fans have compared the X-Men's
Professor X to Martin Luthor King and the evil Magneto to Malcom X. Seeing a
movie like this cannot only provide a couple of hours of entertainment but
make you view society in a totally different way.
This is the best superhero film since the 70's (when we saw gems such as
Superman The Movie) and the 80's (when we saw Tim Burton's Batman). It was a
fantastic film but it begs one question-how are they ever going to top this?
