    Many call it the best X-Men movie, but Nostalgia Critic has some problems with it that a lot of people choose to ignore. Let's take a look at X2: X-Men United.

    Best: Logan Worst: Last stand

  • Cy (Mar 13, 2019)

    I can say this as a confidently heterosexual man:There's nothing unrealistic or out of place about Mystique becoming spontaneously horny for Hugh Jackman. It makes perfect sense.

    It's equipment possible that she was him messing with him as it was that she was into him.

    How can you claim that Pyro's change in allegiance isn't justified? Pyro clearly shows hostility towards humans in the opening scene at the museum and when he literally tells the police to fear him before he attacks them at Iceman's house. He's following along and keeping his head down while he's at the school, but he clearly doesn't agree with Xavier's ideology. So when Magneto tells him that he's a god and that his mutant identity is more important than his human identity, he finally feels validated ...

  • +Vorile DeWise I agree with all of what you said expect the pacing thing, i think he was more complaining about the slow Charles and little girl scenes because they were 100% unneeded we already knew what was going on they didn't add up to anything. Also the Night Crawler thing was a bit lame in the movie, what he should of done was teleport to her mid-air then to the ground not BACK into the still moving plane perfectly. Feel like Doug was right about that being harder then just moving past a door.

    Don't take this seriously... or as comedy. I just wonder how many still watch the N.C for no reason other than they liked it back-in-the-day and now don't want to give up on it.

  • 8L00DY R3G1M3 (Mar 14, 2019)

    I think that the scene where Magneto escapes is actually pretty badass

  • Carstea Florentin (2 days ago)

    SmithYorkinster after a review of my notebook, you're right

  • SmithYorkinster (2 days ago)

    +Carstea Florentin It's a constituent of both hemoglobin and myoglobin, not how it's produced, and it's what makes oxygen bind to them both and why blood and meat are red (basically the same reason rust is red).In a human body there is only 4g of Iron, probably wouldn't be enough for Magneto to do shit, being the reason why Mystique injected a clearly higher quantity.

  • Stefne H (Mar 14, 2019)

    Doug you love X-Men! Why would you think Xavier has telekinesis??? I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.

  • Nova JT (19 hours ago)

    dannyboi451 really i thought thats why he was called MAGNETO you know cause he controls magnets

  • Nick W (3 days ago)

    +Mata Nui i believe this is most likely the correct answer. Err on the side of stupidity, not malice. Dougie boi just got mixed up.

  • Kurington Kuriton (4 days ago)

    During the scene where Magneto escapes his prison my son (9) said that "Magneto is cool!".All I could reply was: "Yes. Yes he is."

  • Jack Richardson (Mar 13, 2019)

    "this is the only way" 1) ice man is nowhere near that powerful yet2) Storm has atmospheric /temperature control, not water control 3) Xavier doesn't have telekinesis

  • Mitchellwho (2 days ago)

    +J C very very true. I suppose if physics are truly considered the entire premise of these movies wouldnt work haha.

  • J C (2 days ago)

    Mitchellwho Fair enough. I think it is a little much to include physics to that degree in these movies though. They rarely follow them anyway. Look at Magneto with the Golden Gate bridge or the baseball stadium.

    Has anyone told him Rogue gets her powers from Captain Marvel? Like, seriously, come on.

  • Swiftbow (21 hours ago)

    +David Gantenbein The animated series showed Rogue getting her powers by draining Captain Marvel. It came about midway through the show's run.

  • David Gantenbein (2 days ago)

    artur6912 He always was just a fan of the old animation series, nothing else. That’s why he doesn’t know this stuff. But he also ignored the stuff from the two movies as Xavier didn’t use any telekinesis in the movies ... ever. And that is really, really bad for a movie critic. On the plus side though: the nostalgia critic is a persona that is supposed to be nitpicking as hell. And there is also the fact that the movie may not be one of the really good X-men movies, but that is mainly due to boring plo...

  • Bar San (Mar 14, 2019)

    THIS MOVIE WAS AMAZING TO 12 YEAR OLD ME. and honestly i think its still holds up really well.

  • Jack Sparrow (Mar 14, 2019)

    Actually, this is one of the greatest sequels ever made.

  • Lynn Taylor (1 day ago)

    I agree. It's one of my favorite movies. I love the first two X-Men films. They're much better than the new X-Men movies.

  • 42nd Blaze (1 day ago)

    CHE6yp Well there are even more stupid bullshit in the movies so it comes full circle
