    Wolverine is the only one who's ever beaten Mystique in a fight. That's my interpretation of her sudden attraction to him. That moment totally worked for me and says alot abour both characters in a small amount of time.

    This is like a Cinemasins video, it’s fucking awful. Every question raised is sorted by common sense. Why can’t Professor X pick up the jet? Cause he’s not telekinetic, moron. The majority of this video is just saying what’s happening, it’s kinda pointless I’m gonna be honest.

    I know everyone has said these thing, but I had to say them. 1. The reason Jason made Charles think he was a little girl was because his power is not telepathy like Charles, but rather creating illusions, so he had to do that to gain his trust and it didn’t last as long as you said it did, and it was a sad moment when jason made Charles think he could walk again. 2. Pyro’s turn was not out of nowhere because throughout the movie he was guy that wanted to show off his powers and Charles restrained him, and remember that pyro attacked all of those cops in the film, so when magneto offered him to join him, he took it as freedom from xavier, so he decided to join him. 3. How is having a fast moment be followed by a slow moment a bad thing? Especially when you usually complain about when a fast moment is followed by another fast moment. 4. How is making rogue more compelling a bad thing? All they did was make her more interesting, and I don’t mind it because it makes sense that she would be scared and tortured by her powers because her power is if she touches someone, they die. Also, when rogue was originally introduced, she was a timid villain looking for forgiveness. 5. The scene with iceman’s parents was there to develop iceman. 6. The only reason you complained about the jet fight, (which was awesome) was because you are used to the animated series where they fight mutants and sentinels, but that doesn’t make the action scene bad. 7. Cyclops knew that logan and Jean had a thing because in the first film that was the whole reason he didn’t like logan. 8. Iceman is not nearly powerful enough by the time of that movie to freeze the lake. 9. Mystique making out with wolverine was a reference to the comics where they had a relationship. 10. I always felt like Jean wanted to die because she was scared of the power growing inside of her and knew about the Phoenix. So when she said it was the only way, to me she was saying it was the only way to stop the Phoenix, but little did she know that water would make her become Phoenix.

    11. What he discovered was that he lost his memory because of the experiment. 12. Also, while they did have a bunch of characters they did choose the right ones to focus on, iceman, wolverine, rogue, magneto, Charles, and Stryker. You know, the moment you announced x month, I got worried because I realized that you were going to rip apart x2, because I saw your days of future past video where you said you didn’t like x2. The only thing that would have been worse is if you ripped apart Logan. And honestly, I usually agree with your videos with a few exceptions like this, Donnie Darko, and a few others.

    7:40 Yeah, I kinda agree that a school that harbors a guy that can shatter glass with his voice, an old man that's damn well unkillable with animalistic sensibilities and razor-sharp metal claws, a mutant that has the combatics of the worlds best Marine platoon with three brains in his head, a girl that can create a sword with mystical energy and her walking tank of a brother that can smash tanks with one fist, a woman who can maniplulate the weather like it's hair at a salon and her nephew that can sprout and shoot bony spikes from his body, a girl who can create a full body of armor made of pure energy, freaking DEADPOOL (on occasion), the reincarnation of APOCALYPSE the first mutant, a boy with metallic wings that can shoot its bladed feathers abd use them as a shield, a woman who can probe your mind and create psionic weapons, a literal beast with the mind of Oxford's greatest intellectual, a girl who can sap away your life force in mere seconds while being able to mimic your physical abilities or powers, a girl who can project your worst nightmares, a boy who can become an indestructible and unstoppable ball of destruction, a girl who can shift between human and wolf, a boy who can create Glaciers out of nothing, the two most powerful psychics in existence with a third that can turn her skin into a diamond lattice, a guy who can turn playing cards into explosives, an acrobatic assassin who can teleport, a boy packing a laser cannon of death behind each of his eyes, a girl who can sap energy and create explosions, another who creates explosive orbs in the palm of her hands, whatever Hepzibah is, a telepath Super-Soldier from the future, a woman that can manipulate probability, a boy who's a One-shot wonder that can become a walking ATOM BOMB, a girl who can change ALL OF REALITY in a second, a girl that can sneak attack you by walking through walls and even more I can't even remember or list here CLEARLY needs a security system. I'm _pppprrrreeeeeeeeeeeeettttyyyy_ sure they're ok.

    About Jean's (here is your joke) sacrifice. Well, yeah, that, maybe, wasn't hinted enough in movie ("judge the film by what it have here and now" and other such stuff), buuuuut... Since Jean had Dark Phoenix inside her isn't this sacrifie looks like intentional suicide? So DP just won't be released and won't do Thanos' job too early. Jean felt she and Prof. X can't hold him any more and she won't be able to help X-Men properly (we'll imagine she helped them properly)+kinda convinient place and situation for burial of someone that strong as DP.

    This is a great movie, but too many fans talk like its the "Empire Strikes Back" of Xmen trilogy (hope I'm not strawmanning too much, that is my perception though). I like all of the first five xmen movied about equally with a slight preference for X1. One advantage of X2 is that most characters and relationships have already been established. X2 gets to explore and expand these arcs and conflicts, as well a start a few new ones. Great action sequences too. In no particular order: Nightcrawler vs WH security, Wolverine vs the the invasion team, Magneto breezing out of prison the instant he is in range a few ounces of metal, Pyro finally rejects school and discipline(he's clearly fed up with holding back at the start of the movie) so unleashes his flame power at the police after they shoot Wolverine in the face, and Wolverine vs Deathstrike.

  33. James VanZanten

    James VanZanten17 ngày trước

    What I think this movie's big weakness is that villain's plan is too convoluted This is something X3 did much better. What is happening at the end of X3: The humans are making a cure for the mutant super powers from the biology of a young mutant boy. Many mutants regard this as certain genocide. The evil mutants are going stop this by killing the young mutant and everyone protecting him. The xmen have to stand against them. The evil mutants have also brought the most powerful and unstable mutant alive to the battle. Now imagine trying to explain the plot and stakes of X2's climax to someone who just came into the room. Here we go: A military scientist wants exterminate the race of super powered mutants. It just so happens that the leader of the xmen could (but wouldn't of his own free wiil) kill every mutant at once with his telepathic ability, if his power is augmented by his custom built telepathy amplifying machine. So the scientist captures Professor X and builds a copy of the telepathy amplifier. The scientist can control almost any mutant with a compound extracted from the nervous system of his own mutant son, whom he has lobotomized and who has a different kind of telepathic power. The compound won't work on professor X because his mind is too powerful, but the scientist's son can overpower him directly by proximity. So the scientist is going to put professor X and his son in the telepathy amplifier and use the mind control compound on his son to force him to force professor X to locate and kill every mutant in the world through the telepathy amplifier. The peaceful and evil mutants have to team up against the military laboratory to stop it. Then while the good mutants are distracted in battle, the evil mutants get to the telepathy amplifier alone. Instead of disarming the whole situation, the evil mutants use the shape shifter on their team to pretend to be the scientist to trick his son into forcing professor X to locate and destroy all of the humans instead. To me, this amount of complexity is harmful to a story. It may be valid to say that having to pay attention to the movie isn't really a flaw. On the other hand, Its my opinion that suspension of disbelief and immersion hold better when the plot doesn't depend too much on knowing the fictional rules of a story. Examples of Scifi that does this well include Batman 1989: The Joker is planning to attack the city with weaponized chemical gas Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1989: The Shredder is recruiting and exploiting already troubled teens to build a personal army of violent robbers and using them against the citizens of New York. Star Wars 1977: The galactic empire is chasing some rebels who have the schematics to their planet destroying space station, while also trying to find and destroy the last rebel stronghold. Again its an opinion, but I think many would agree keeping track of fewer details makes a smoother story.

    That scene with ice mans family, and his mom basically saying 'have you tried not being a mutant' is probably supposed to be a metaphor for homosexuality. Since one of the main 'theories' of mutants is that they are supposed to reflect how gay people are treated. Their feeling of being different and being treated different and often badly etc. If you keep that in mind that scene makes... Some more sense
