    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 is Logan, and worst is X-men origins wolverine

  • Ricky May  (Apr 14, 2019)

    Best- X2 Worst- The Last Stand and Origins

  • 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.

  • Gaming Goof  (May 18, 2019)

    That's because any sane man would be spontaneously horny back for the blue bombshell

  • Jenna Thompson  (Apr 6, 2019)

    All straight women concur 😂

    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 ...

  • Jermane Taylor Jr.  (May 12, 2019)

    Jacob Entz that’s what some critics do honestly

  • Corthmic  (Mar 18, 2019)

    "Xavier couldn't have lifted the plane from the inside?"Doug, Xavier can't even move his legs with his powers, why the hell would he be able to move a jet?

  • Fadzai Simango  (Mar 28, 2019)

    Also Professor X is not telekinetic and never exhibited TK in the films.

  • noobslayer135  (Mar 14, 2019)

    That opening Nightcrawler scene still holds up.

  • 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.

  • dannyboi451  (Mar 23, 2019)

    +Nova JT you know what? I'm not gonna get into a fucking argument with you. You are wrong I am right. The fact that you defend dumbass critic is stupid and I will not let you troll me

  • Nova JT  (Mar 23, 2019)

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

  • geardog24  (Mar 13, 2019)

    I hate how Nightcrawler was just tossed aside after X2. He's one of the best X-Men in history.

  • geardog24 at least he came back in X-Men Apocalypse.

  • Bort Theattorney  (Apr 11, 2019)

    olddogmaster So he basically had a glorified cameo like ant-man and spider-man in civil war?

  • Kurington Kuriton  (Mar 19, 2019)

    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."

  • Dai  (Mar 27, 2019)

    And then the whole theater clapped.

  • jean-francois labelle  (Mar 14, 2019)

    Doug, I thought you knew comics. Rogue can fly because she absorbed Ms Marvel (of all characters) powers! You can stop picking that bone now, it's getting old.

  • DevolutionX23  (Mar 17, 2019)

    Thank you.

  • prolifik5  (Mar 15, 2019)

    +CT68 I haven't watched it in ages but I recall them showing when that happened in the cartoon.

  • Cassy Black  (Mar 16, 2019)

    I know that it's something popular to harp on with these movies but Flight, Super Strength, Super durability were never part of Rogue's original power set and were stolen from the person that didn't have her own movie until this year.

  • Cassy Black  (Mar 27, 2019)

    +Kanna Kamui No reason I can think of really. Just the way I phrased it at the time. But yep, Ms. Marvel.

  • Kanna Kamui  (Mar 27, 2019)

    I understand and I'm sure he can out two and two together but why didn't you just say Captain Marvel or Ms. Marvel(which was her name at the time)
