Let's talk about VFX
13 May 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a featurette located on the 2-Disc DVD of X2, and it deals entirely with the effects. It's made up of interviews, pre-vis, animation material in various stages of development and varying degrees of detail and some clips of the two films(as well as a little behind the scenes footage), both obviously focusing on the FX. After Fink, who worked on both, divulges to us how he felt, and feels, about the work they did on the first, and not long after, the going over the scenes or sequences, each starting with a title card telling you which specific one it is. Quite a lot of information is given, on CG, how exactly they did the various shots, and no "talking heads" waste any time(nor do they rush on, particularly), or seem at all irrelevant. It's all explained well and made understandable. Singer and, much more so, Cumming and Marsden(funny and charming as usual), only appear fairly briefly, each giving some tidbits from their perspective(and each are nice to watch, indeed), with the very most part of the talking being done by the members of Mike's team, with him, in his position as "supervisor" of the efforts, found at the top, with the highest amount of screen-time. This is well-edited throughout, and paced reasonably. It comes to about 25 minutes in total, and it does a good job of covering everything in that time. I recommend this to any fan of the movies and/or anyone who wants to know about the way the visuals were achieved in X2. 7/10
