There aren’t many occassions when a sequel is as fun as the original, as we all know, but I think in this case, Deadpool 2 is certainly at least as fun as the first.
Well, that’s what I’M saying, anyway.
Crazy, things, terrible things, happen, and Deadpool is on a mission. Then Cable shows up from the future (you know he’s a time-traveling mercenary soldier, right?) and has a mission of his own: a young kid with mutant powers is going to cause some horrible things to happen, and Cable’s going to kill the kid before he does them. So, Deadpool is going to try to protect him.
Madness ensues. Wonderful, hilarious, dirty-mouthed madness.
Deadpool 2 is SO much fun. It my have more laughs and quick Marvel in-jokes crammed into it than you can keep track of, and it’s wonderful. I laughed almost constantly for the whole 2 hour run time.
You really have to keep your eyes peeled for some fantastic cameos, whip fast visual gags, and funny lines coming at you every other second. And for crying out loud, do NOT get up right away at the end of the film.
This is one of the most fun movies I’ve seen in a while. This sequel definitely solidifies Ryan Reynolds as perfect for this character. Everybody here is great – the action is bonkers, and that third wall is broken often. The film makes fun of itself, of others, and of the DC cinematic universe, of course.
And oh, the magic of X-Force. So hilarious. And Zazie Beetz as Domino totally shines. And let’s her eit for X-Force member Peter! Go Peter!
I clearly don’t ant to say too much here because I don’t want to give away any spoilers – and I’m sure you don’t want me to, either. So I won’t.
AND, I’ll keep this short because of that. ME? I LOVED Deadpool 2. Solid four kittenhands. Four and a half, even. Dare I say five? Was it perfect? Gee, I don’t know. Maybe. I know i HAVE to see it again, for sure. It’s the Feel Good movie of the year so far.
Now go out there and have some fun!
