Yeah I saw it on friday night. 3 words: brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.
Absolutely loved it! Agree with you about Nightcrawler - they did an amazing job with him. Also loved Mystique - so, mysterious indeed!
How did you like the scene at the end, with the Phoenix flying through the water? And also... I was hosing myself with laughter when the little boy stuck out his tongue at the bad dude (forgot his name) at the end of the movie? haha, thought that was very cute!

I saw it early Friday when it opened on the 3rd. Classic movie. I loved the first, and thought this one blew it away. From great action and fighting, to witty humor and lines, to the effects, to the way it played off the first X-Men movie...all around a great job. I cannot wait until I can get this on DVD.
Oh, and I did notice the striking similarity of the X-Jet to the SR-71.

Collosus was the big dude who had armor on, Siren of course was the girl who screamed her brains out, and Kitty Pride was the girl who walked through walls. I also just remembered that there was a reference to the Beast, he was the dude on the television who was arguing in favor of mutants.

Just FYI, but in the X-Men comics, the jet was an SR-71 enhanced with alien technology. It was even referred to as "the Blackbird". The look of the plane has made the transition to the big screen, but not the reason why.

I saw it two weeks ago, and liked it a lot.
One regret, though, at the end of the movie, when Jean Grey is submerged by the water, Bobby/Iceman had a lot of opportunities to save the day (freezing the water while it was still held by the dam, or if it was too much, create a ice bubble strong enough to protect the jet, or at least Jean Grey...
I know Jean Grey had to 'die' because of what will happen in the next movie, but still, I feel there is a leak in the scenario, there...
Other than that, great movie. The opening scene, with Mozart's Requiem Dies Irae kicked ass. Well, almost. It could have been choregraphiated so that the music did not have to be cut the way they did.

That final scene was sort of a kicker. I kept imagining whtether or not I was really "seeing" something in the lake. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.
I saw that gay article and was not impressed. I mean, you can make the same arguements about any oppressed peoples being portrayed in the movie. In a way, that is what makes it intriguing to many walks of life.
Is it true that X2 was the frist film to be #1 in all its international openings? That was one rumor I heard.
