Certified Fresh85%
Critics Consensus: Tightly scripted, solidly acted, and impressively ambitious, X2: X-Men United is bigger and better than its predecessor -- and a benchmark for comic sequels in general.

Fun but violent sequel has peril, cursing.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that X2: X-Men United is the action- and violence-packed second film in the X-Men blockbuster movie franchise. The action in the fight scenes is unrelenting and, though cartoonish and rooted in comic books, features moments where the president of the United States is pinned down on his Oval Office desk by a knife-wielding mutant, police officers are burned to a crisp, and soldiers are clawed to death by Wolverine. There's a scene of forced sexual coercion during which Mystique forces herself on a prison guard, where they end up in a bathroom -- the initiation of oral sex is strongly implied. At other moments, characters are kicked, thrown, and shot at. Teens smoke in a mall, and Wolverine is often seen with a cigar in his mouth. There's occasional profanity ("s--t," "ass," "t-t," "d--k," "hell") and some product placement as characters drink Dr. Pepper and Miller Genuine Draft. On a positive note, the X-Men are brave, devoted to their professor and school, and loyal to one another.
