THE sequel of the year so far, X2 (X-Men 2) more that lives up to the hype, and if anything I still think they are holding back. Equally enjoyable as an action romp and as a continuation of the X-Men story, you are left in no doubt that director Bryan Singer knows his subject well and knows what the audience want. Plenty of ‘in-jokes’ for the comic book fans, and never forgetting what it is, this was hugely enjoyable entertainment. I’m looking forward to the third one already.
