Blockbuster movie lag

I just got back from seeing X2. Aside from the fact that, yes, the political commentary is very relevant to today (just change Xmen to "Al-Quaeda" - or, more honestly, "all Muslims" or "all Arabs," and the hysteria is the same), the movie left me feeling extremely sad that I believe that I now live in a world where having more or less random swat teams descending on people's homes or schools is just not all that unusual. I also feel like no one is standing up to say that it's wrong for things to be this way because they're too busy trying to figure what other liberties they should surrender to the people they foolishly expect to protect them.

But, gosh, it was a great flick otherwise!
