This movie focus' on the craft of the X-Men series.
March 13, 2009
The most over-rated movie ever. It runs too long and the ending is a Star Trek film rip-off, just like Singer's Superman Returns was a Disgrace to the 1978 Superman film.

Mr. Singer and his collaborators grasp that comic books, for all their obligatory fights and explosions, are at bottom about their brave, troubled, impossibly muscled characters. Full Review
David Edelstein
My chief complaint is that these mutants are a little--well, vanilla. I wish the X-Men had a touch of kinkiness to go with their weird abilities. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Visually, X2 is a sight to behold, with impressive special effects and a dynamic sense of place. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
All the same, X2 and recent action adventures like it constitute a mutation in their own right: fast-paced, slow-witted movies in which the impact is the message; impersonal movies that deny any need for characterization; disjointed movies that make no apologies -- and pay no penalties -- for making no sense. Their special gift is giving little and getting a lot. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Directed with depth, efficiency, and wit by Bryan Singer, the film suffered only from a tendency to seem like a setup for an even bigger movie...Fortunately, bigger usually equals better here, and when it doesn't, it equals just as good. Full Review
