The movie again focuses upon the human-mutant dichotomy. Colonel William Stryker believes there is a war between humans and mutants and has a plan to use Professor Xavier’s Cerebro to wipe them all out. The question is how will the mutants respond. Will it be like Professor Xavier who hopes for co-existence or at least to protect mutants or will it be like Magneto who believes in the war himself and that the mutants should strike back? That’s played out with some of the young students of Xavier who are split between the two sides.
Stryker also ran the program that turned Wolverine into a living weapon and that’s a subplot as Logan attempts to find his origins.
The reason why X2 was so much better than the other films was that the story was much tighter. It created some real tensions such as when Mystique was trying to break into some of Stryker’s files. The action was better choreographed highlighted by the fight between Wolverine and Lady Deathstrike. The effects were great like Magneto extracting some iron from inside the body of one of his guards. All these together are why it is the most enjoyable to watch.
If you thought that "X-Men 1.5" was a great DVD then you'll be pleasantly surprised with "X2: X-Men United" 2-Disc Widescreen Edition. The blockbuster sequel is presented in its theatrical 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen format. The DVD contains a fantastic video transfer with great resolution and rich colors. Its Dolby Digital 5.1 sound is truly great but for a terrific home theater experience, the DTS audio track really delivers. The 2-Disc Widescreen Edition includes an audio commentary with director Brian Singer and production crew, a "Making of X2" documentary, 11 deleted scenes, photo galleries, theatrical trailers, 11 behind-the-scenes featurettes and colorful interactive menus. Overall, "X2: X-Men United" scores a solid "A".
