X2

4.5/5 stars

I agree with everyone who’s been saying that they enjoyed this second installment better than the first. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy the first one, and since I haven’t read any of the comics or watched the cartoon, I probably needed much of the background presented in the first movie. X2, though, had a lot more plot and did not even feel like a two-and-a-half hour movie.

The film starts with an assassination attempt on the president by a teleporting mutant named Nightcrawler. Since the world already mistrusts mutants, this attack sparks a retaliation by the president, led by his mutant advisor, Stryker. The best target they have is Xavier’s school, which they know about from interrogations of Magneto.
