The Story

After an attempted assault on the president of the United States performed by a mutant (the fabulous Alan Cumming as Nightcrawler), Colonel William Stryker gets permission to raid the X Men school.

Stryker is experimenting with mutants since years, and he is the man who created Wolverine.

Meanwhile, Magneto escapes from his high security prison - but only after being forced to reveal the secret of Cerebro to Stryker.

Magneto and Mystique team up with the X Men to stop Stryker from starting a war against the mutants.

 

______________________________

 

Wolverine is also back and discovers more of his past in X2, and we also meet again with Storm (Halle Berry), Jean Grey (who has much more impressive powers than in part one), Cyclops, Rogue, Pyro and Iceman, and we get a glimpse of Colossus.

New with the X Men is Nightcrawler, and he is just fantastic!

On the "bad" side, Toad and Sabretooth are missing, but Mystique is back, and Lady Deathstrike (the female version of Wolverine) is introduced.

 

Does X2 keep the promises given in X-Men 1?

Yes it does - more and better action, more and better special effects, Wolverine does major butt-kicking, and Nightcrawler is a loveable character.

So there are sequels that are better than the original, and this is one of them! Go watch!
