5.0 out of 5 stars Comic book best!, 5 May 2003
Carrying on where the first one left off X2 is an astounding narrative led action extravaganza.
Bryan Singer, the director, has created a masterpiece and not one area of the film lets it down. All the parts are acted great, the set pieces, effects and fights are terrific. Special note must go to the opening nightcrawler scene. which took my breath away, and the X Men jet dog fight scene amongst tornadoes created by Storm.
However the real star is the ingenious and original story which creates an astounding universe, from the intimate character studies to the global dilemma of General Strykers evil plan to rid the world of mutants.
Simply a must see action film which easily steals the limelight from Spiderman and Daredevil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Chiliance!, 25 Feb 2003
This review is from: By the Way (Audio CD)
When I bought this album I was not expecting much. After I had played it I couldn't of hoped for anything more. This album truly is the greatest musical work ever with amazing and even beautiful tracks from the funky, fast-paced Can't Stop to the poetic ballads like Midnight and the brilliant, brilliant Venice Queen.
The masterpiece begins with title track By the Way which is a brilliant start which is one of the rockiest and most energetic tracks. second is Universally Speaking which takes things to a slower, more tuneful song before we're thrust into This is the Place which takes us back to a urban, funky style. Fourthly comes Dosed, one of the highlight tracks with female backing vocals perfectly complementing Kiedis' and a long remembered tune to the verses. Fifth is don't forget me with a rip-roaring, loud chorus. Next is the zephyr song a psychedelic, hippy style ballad followed by can't Stop, a catchy rap number. Eighth is i could die for you, poppy, soulful love ballad, then great Midnight with violin backing and a sing-along ending. After that is Throw away your Television a strange techno/funk song and then Cabron aflamenco guitar and spanish lyrics bonanza. Tear takes the mood to sorrowful again before the surreal lyrics and harmonia of On Mercury. Minor thing comes after which is a fast-paced track, then the mellow verses and breakout chorus of Warm Tape. Lastly Venice Queen explodes out with an awesome lyrical style and change of mood halfway through.
Buy it now whoever you are!
