Your Opinions and Comments

9 / 10
This disc is alot better than the original X-men release, I was dissapointed with the first release, but this is a vast improvement.
The film is good, let down by the action scenes and running time. Hugh Jackman is great as Wolverine.
The picture and Sounds is identical to the first release, apart from the dts soundtrack. Picture and sound are very good.
The extras are fantatic. Bryan Singer`s commentry is good, although singer is initally nervous. You can also choose to have behind the scenes or deleted scenes cut into the film. The behind the scenes material is good, and it is good to know that the footage isn`t repeated on disc 2.
Disc 2 has 2 and a half hours of documentries. The behind the scenes footage is funny, including when they first try on the costumes. The premier footage is also very good.
It`s a shame that Fox couldn`t have release this fisrt time round, i hope X2 only gets one Special Edition dvd release.
