X-Men 2 – damn it’s a good movie! Action, drama, cool effects and a coherent script with some disturbing parallels to the folk panics created after recent events and the manipulation of them as a justification for the use of force against those who are ‘different’. Just sent my review into Ariel so it should be up on the mighty Alien in a few days (now that poor old Ariel has recovered from Microsoft’s tender mercies).
