Look at it this way, none of this is real. Your pain is not real. Not officially real. Your fear and confusion are not officially real. This building does not exist. Officially I do not exist. Therefore you do not exist. Logic at work. I can do anything to you. You have no advocate here. No one to bargain for your release.
X2, I think Logan is a better film but I love X2, and I have seen it way more times than Logan, which if I go by rewatches then yeah X2 is by far my fav X-Men movie, then Logan, then First Class, X-Men, Wolverine and DOFP last in my ranking of these films, DOFP just doesn't do it for me.
X-men 2. I think it had less dramatic impact with some characters (Logan and Rogue) than the first but more action and suspense.
Brian Cox was a great villain.
"You know, just one year after Jason returned from your school- my wife - you see he resented us. He blamed us for his condition. So he would toy with our minds... projecting visions and scenarios into our brains. Well, my wife, in the end, she took a power drill to her left temple in an attempt to bore the images out. My boy, the great illusionist."
"Learn from me, if not by my precepts, at least by my example, how dangerous is the acquirement of knowledge and how much happier that man is who believes his native town to be the world, than he who aspires to become greater than his nature will allow." Frankenstein
X2 was good for it's time, when the franchise was young and there was still hope for future films going bigger and better. Brian Cox is a great villain and the Nightcrawler White House scene still stands out, but the rest doesn't really hold up for me when you consider what they could have done for a big budget X-Men film. Characters were underutilized, potential was wasted and too much focus was put on Wolverine (trends continued in later films).
I guess I would have to give it Logan.
It's genuinely a good film with terrific performances and works in what should have been the final film in the franchise. But it also has very few X-Men in it, which is a good thing, because that means fewer characters to butcher/misuse and when viewed as an Elseworlds story, there's less to be disappointed with.
Well the movie was really solid and had a good time throughout most of it. It was different that it was set in Japan also but then the last half hour had them in a generic lab with a giant samurai robot and a venom spitting bald woman.
