      I loved this film,watching it 5x at the cinema!
      Famke J was superb & i cried when she sacrificed herself,...& then jumped outta my seat with excitement with the glimpse of the Phoenix at the end,& promising so much for the next film.
      We all know how that turned out eh! 😞😕

          Ok, Animal farm isn't a book, it's an allegorical novella about Stalinism, and spoiler alert, it sucks.

                Nightcrawler was able to save Rogue because she was free falling through the AIR. He is scared about teleporting into an object... since he has no idea what the room looks like inside, it's always possible he'll teleport into a control console, or a filing cabinet.

                  or is it both? :D
                  This film is awesome, you just forcefully nit pick and twist things.

                    I'm willing to give the X-Men the 007 pass- it doesn't necessarily HAVE to make sense. But the original X-Men TAS WAS better than ANY of the movies.

                      For all the ones who say that Xavier doesn’t have telekinesis didnt xavier tell logan that jean had the same powers has him? I know he meant the mind reading thing but couldnt he just have been confused and taught that in this universe that they made it so that he had it

                        Why not just manipulate the electrons in every atom if magneto controls magnetism his abilities therefor control or at the very least be able to manipulate electricity. Scarlet Witch, reality wrapping.... well if they every dueled just disable her atoms bit by bit! I wish they could implement real science 101 into this. Science is OP as....

                          Superhero movies have come a long way but at this point this movie had the edge on character development and story arcs. Compare to others of the time and it has so much more heart.

                                      Since when is Xavier telekinetic? I thought he could mess with people's heads, never throw things with his mind.

                                                Literally every problem Doug has with this movie is solved by scenes he doesn’t take into consideration or just by logical deduction. There’s a lot of wrong in this movie however Doug mentions absolutely none of them

                                                  X2 is definitely my favorite X-men movie; in part because it confirms what 'Evolution' taught us: that Nightcrawler is the sexiest mutant of all time.

Some really odd complaints, many of which demonstrate either willful ignorance of the movie's story (Xavier isn't a telekinetic) and/or a lack of any basic research.

                                                                                        Storm controls the weather, but she doesn't have any control over water itself to my knowledge.
                                                                                        'Xavier couldn't lift the plane from inside'
