5 Stars

I was very skeptical about X2: X-Men United being better than the first. However, the opening sequence with Nightcrawler attacking the President in the Oval Office left me dumbfounded–it was then that I knew the hype was all true. Magneto’s escape sequence is equally amazing and imaginative. Not surprisingly, he gets out with Mystique’s assistance. The film is filled with almost non-stop action and is visually spectacular, and it isn’t just Halle Berry’s nipples showing through her top, I’m talking about the special effects. The struggles between mutants and a distrusting and fearful human society continue in this installment of the X-Men series. Unfortunately, this time it means the loss of one of their own. It is a must see film that marks the official start of the summer movie season. Next: Matrix Reloaded.
