| Better than the first.
This movie was great--much better than the original film, which was pretty standard as far as summer blockbusters go. X-2 skipped all the awkward and unnecessary attempts at a backstory (and I'm speaking as someone who knew next to nothing about the XMen when I saw the film) and went straight for an intelligent route. The characters were fascinating and the special effects were truly pretty good--and that's saying something, since I'm usually bored out of my mind by that kind of thing.Some of the acting was absolutely wonderful. Rebecca Romijn Stamos, Ian McKellen, Alan Cummings, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, and Anna Paquin more than made up for the mediocre attempts of Halle Berry and Famke Janssen.

Trivia

(At around one hour and thirty minutes) When Wolverine visits the adamantium processing chamber of Stryker's Alkali Base, there is a wall covered with x-rays detailing the adamantium bonding process. On the far right is an x-ray of what appears to be a left wing. The DVD acknowledges this as a hint to a winged character named Angel, who was introduced in the next movie, X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). In the comic books, Angel's wings are replaced with metal ones, and he becomes Archangel. This happens in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016).

Goofs

When Bobby's family first sees Logan in their home, they seem surprised only upon sight of him. However, in a later exterior shot of the home, we see that their family car is parked behind the RX-8 that the mutants arrived in. The family would've realized that there is possibly someone in their home long before they entered it.


Crazy Credits

This is the first X-Film in the series to use the Marvel comic-book logo.


Alternate Versions

In the American version of the movie, Wolverine asks for "something other than chocolate milk" and receives the reply "There should be some Dr Pepper..." In international versions, the replay is "There should be some soda...". In both versions, the bottle is still a Dr Pepper bottle, only the audio is altered.
