X 2: X Men United
Proffesor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) still believes that it's possible for humans and mutants to peacefully co-exist, but the evil Magneto (Ian McKellen) believes that humans should be completely eliminated. He's now imprisoned behind plastic bars which prevents him from using his amazing magnetic powers. But he won't be there long. He'll escape in a completely ingenious way devised by the shape-shifting Mystique (Romijn-Stamos). And the best part is that when he does escape, it's to help the X-MEN, not try to destroy them. The evil government guy (Brian Cox) is convinced that no good can come from a world where mutants can co-exist with humans and he's figured out a way to steal Dr. Xavier's invention which makes it possible for him to keep track of every living thing on the planet and, if necessary, kill them. After a mutant tries to kill the President, the United States government has become militantly anti-mutant and they are determined not to let anyone a little different coexist. Director Brian Singer has brought all the regulars back, including Halle Berry as Storm, the silver-caped weather mistress, and of course Hugh Jackman as Wolverine who's still trying to find out where he came from and this episode gets him a little closer. He also has to deal with the lovely telepathic and telekinetic Jean Gray (Famke Janssen) who inexplicably chooses Cyclops (James Marsden) over him. And best of all there's Alan Cuming as Nightcrawler, a pious German circus refugee with blue, bat-like makeup, pointed teeth and an even pointier tail, but with a compassionate soul. If it's adventure and great special effects you're after, you won't be dissapointed in this terrific actioner andthe bursting Dam finale will knock your socks off. Sequels are not known to improve on the original, but this one's got more substance, more action and more character development than X-Men (2000).
