The Summer movie season has officially begun! I'm just back from seeing X2: X-Men United on premiere night. It was great and better than the first X-Men movie. It has lots of flair, great special effects and the characters that you loved from the first film are further fleshed out. Plus, several other mutants are given cameos. If you are a comics fan, you are gonna love this. In addition, without giving away any major spoilers, the cliffhanger ending of X2 portents the arrival of a character called Phoenix in X3. Excellent twist. This was a very satisfying moviegoing experience. It's a great time to be a comics fan!
