X-Men 2 United was another blockbuster. The movie costs $110 million to make and grossed $407,711,504 at the box office world-wide. X-Men 2 was released on May 2, 2003.
I don’t have much to say about X-Men 2 because I am not getting a solid grasp on it as a clueless person of Marvel comics. If you read the comic books when you were growing up then you are worlds ahead of everyone else and will not walk away wondering what the heck, who are these characters really and when will the director FINALLY let you in on what everyone else already knows. You will love X-Men 2 if you are a Marvel comic book fan and read the books. The only comic books I read when I was growing up are the Archie Comics. I liked reading about Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead.
X-Men 2 introduces the character Nightcrawler in the opening scenes. Nightcrawler attacks the president in the oval office during a meeting. The opening scenes were really done very well if you like that sort of thing. Nightcrawler was too satanish looking for my comfort, but I have to give kudos to how effective it was. It was really weird listening to Nightcrawler recite passages from the Bible later on throughout the movie.
I won’t say anymore about the storyline, just watch the movie for yourself if you haven’t already. As usual Patrick Stewart, Jack the Man and Anna Pacquin did very well in their roles. Jackman gets better as Wolverine and I love that he has such a big heart. I just want to hug him and help him remember who he is. (Heck I’d like to know too).
