Tagline: In this world wide conspiracy the only thing you can count on... Is the X factor.
It has been months when the X-Men helped to have Magneto imprisoned in a plastic chamber from the previous movie X-Men. Now another danger is looming as a mutant who goes by the name "Nightcrawler" got into the White House and tried to assassinate The President. So, once again the mutants band together by looking for Nightcrawler.
Once again this movie never failed to amaze me. It is really living up to par with it's first film that went out and is about to satisfy the die-hard fan of the said comics. The actors really did a great job. I like this part because the X-Men are finally getting united to fight one battle. :) I like nightcrawler's views. :)
Although Magneto and Professor X has different views they still kept their love for each other. It's really kind of wonderful how they cannot kill one another. They'd fight for their own causes but never losing what they had in the past - friendship. :)
QUOTES I LIKE:
Professor X: Mutants. Since the discovery of their existence they have been regarded with fear, suspicion, often hatred. Across the planet, debate rages. Are mutants the next link in the evolutionary chain or simply a new species of humanity fighting for their share of the world? Either way it is a historical fact: Sharing the world has never been humanity's defining attribute.
Nightcrawler: You know, outside the circus, most people were afraid of me. But I didn't hate them. I pitied them. Do you know why? Because most people will never know anything beyond what they see with their own two eyes.
Storm: Well, I gave up on pity a long time ago.
Nightcrawler: Someone so beautiful should not be so angry.
Storm: Sometimes anger can help you survive.
Nightcrawler: So can faith.
Storm: [about Nightcrawler's markings] So... What are they?
Nightcrawler: They're angelic symbols, passed on to mankind by the archangel Gabriel.
Storm: They're beautiful. How many do you have?
Nightcrawler: One for every sin. So quite a few.
Wolverine: I need you to read my mind again.
Professor X: Logan, the mind isn't just a box that can be unlocked and opened, it's a beehive with many...
Wolverine: Spare me the lecture.
Policeman: Put the knives down!
Wolverine: I can't.
Professor X: Logan, my tolerance for your smoking in the mansion notwithstanding, continue smoking that in here, and you'll spend the rest of your days under the belief that you're a six-year-old girl.
Wolverine: You'd do that?
Professor X: I'd have Jean braid your hair.
