X-Men 2

The second in the series offers more of the same for fans. Most of the original group are back, and one or two new faces. This time around, the goodies and baddies have to team up to fight a new common enemy: a general who wants to destroy all mutants. At the same time Wolverine is trying to solve the mystery of his past, and these two plot threads come together in the showdown finale.

Ian Douglas: Once again, lots of action and special effects... the print I saw did not look good visually, suspect the projector was at fault, since the trailers on TV look perfect. There's not much to say, it's a teenage boy movie, and about what you'd expect.
