USA, Bryan Singer
A totally spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment decision found me sitting in a movie theater in the middle of the day on Friday, catching the first show of X2 on opening weekend. It was just the escapism that I needed and thoroughly enjoyable.
Let me state for the record that I am about as far from a card-carrying, comic-book-reading, action-franchise-loving movie patron as you could hope to find. Let the record also show that my expectations were basement level low for this film, having wasted full fare on the first X-Men film three years ago (Was it really THREE years ago?!?!?!?) X2 started off with a bang, promising an exciting ride, which it definitely delivered.
