Review: "...It lives in the present, providing one amazing spectacle after another..." (Chicago Sun-Times, p.29, 02/05/2003)<br><br>"...X2 is 2 good to be 4-gotten. Brisk and involving with a streamlined forward propulsion....One of the unexpected aspects of X2 is the way its concerns seem to be uncannily relevant today..." (Los Angeles Times, p.C1, 02/05/2003)<br><br>"...A symphony of crescendos and pauses, orchestrated toward a big seat-rattling climax, during which an enormous dam breaks, veins bulge on both villainous and heroic brows, and a lot of computer-generated images pop, wiggle and shimmy to the throb and roar of John Ottman's music..." (New York Times, p.E1, 02/05/2003)<br><br>"...Hugh Jackman is again in fierce, lupine form as Wolverine..." (Rolling Stone, p.70, 29/05/2003)<br><br>...No other film-maker has better dramatised superpowers in action and yet remembered the human cost of all the trickery. X2 is full of double-edged power fantasies that manage a frisson of awe amid the excitement..." (Sight and Sound, p.59-60, 01/06/2003)<br><br>"...The cast is full of actors who are fun to watch..." (USA Today, p.11D, 02/05/2003)<br><br>
