      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Tightly scripted, solidly acted, and impressively ambitious, X2: X-Men United is bigger and better than its predecessor -- and a benchmark for comic sequels in general.

      Hargie M While the first installment laid the groundwork with its fresh take on the mutant saga, the sequel feels like it's trying to cram too much onto the plate, resulting in a slightly overstuffed narrative. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/17/24 Full Review Freddy G It goings very well all time a lot of things happens, very entertaining. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/24 Full Review David C Tiene más acción que la primera es larga pero para ser película de 2003 es bien echa efectos especiales Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/22/24 Full Review Steven R This movie is outstanding, with great performances all around, and an engaging script. The first superhero of its era to feel like it exists in a larger, fully-populated world. Alan Cumming in perfectly cast as Nightcrawler, and more than holds his own as he interacts with the established team. One of my very favorite movies in this genre. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/21/24 Full Review Gabriel F Fantastic sequel. 👍🏻 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/01/24 Full Review Gabriel Valentim Muito bom! Recomendo muito assistir esse filme.

      Alonso Duralde The Advocate X2 is pretty much all that you’d ever want out of a comic book movie -- it’s smart, it’s breathlessly paced, the characters have at least 2 1/2 dimensions, and the action sequences are jaw-droppers, even on the small screen. Apr 5, 2022 Full Review Alexander Walker London Evening Standard The truth is, the film is never again as good as its brilliant opening sequence. Jan 10, 2018 Full Review Barbara Ellen Times (UK) X-Men 2 remains a decent enough sci-fi effort, which delivers on most of the levels fans could expect. Too bad it's hampered by a plot that wouldn't get green-lit for an average episode of Buffy. Jan 3, 2018 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Inspiring hope for equality and further suggesting that governments are at the mercy of the populace, the franchise actionizes these themes to gratify both the mind and senses as few comic book movies have ever done to this point. Rated: 3.5/4 Dec 15, 2023 Full Review Eve Tushnet Patheos It does more than any other live action superhero film to convey the sheer wonder of superpowers. Jul 23, 2021 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Once again, there's plenty of action, though the overdependence on wirework and computer-augmented fight choreography grows ever more grating. Rated: 5/10 Nov 9, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
