FIND ALL OF MY X-MEN REVIEWS HERE
As of this writing out of the X-Men franchise’s 6 movies, I haven’t seen The Wolverine or X-Men Origins. Of the remaining 4 movies, however, I have a hard time choosing between X2 and First Class when choosing which title is my favorite of the franchise.
X2: X-Men United was a marked improvement over the first movie in nearly every category. The special effects are much better and the story feels more personal (at least to Wolverine) and less like a comic book super villain plot.
