He, it's probably the dramatic tension of the upcoming "sacrifice" that's holding it together.
Speaking of which, to this day I still don't get why Jean had to die there. Was there an unspoken rule for her powers saying she couldn't lift herself up? She does in X3. I've also heard suggestions that her powers were getting too much out of hand, but we never saw anything that would suggest that. She never put her teammates in any danger and her increased powers even helped them in a couple of scenes.
