Review: ‘DEADPOOL 2’

So it always seems like a rule with genre movies, that for a sequel, you go BIGGER than the first. And DEADPOOL 2 delivers BIG in the most glorious fashion!

The movie delivers basically what you’ve seen in trailers, Cable (delightfully & broodingly played by Josh Brolin) goes back in time to kill a young mutant Russell. And from there, with the memory of Colossus’ “moments” talk from the first movie, Deadpool chooses to save the kid.

And from beginning to end, the movie is filled with raunchy laughs, pop-culture references, and over the top violence. Basically everything you’d expect after seeing the first movie, only BIGGER!

One of the ways DEADPOOL 2 went bigger? Some AMAZING FUCKING CAMEOS! So keep your eyes on the screen as your drinking your soda and eating your popcorn, otherwise you might miss them!

Seriously, DEADPOOL 2 is a helluva lot of fun.

But of course, if you haven’t seen it yet, I’m sure you’re wondering how many post-credit scenes there are. Well, simply there are 2. The second being a montage of shots. Of course not gonna tell you what they are. But after the montage, there’s nothing else in terms of footage. So no need to stay till the very end of the credits.

BUT if you are so inclined to stay till the very end of the credits, there is a pretty glorious musical nugget to cap the credits. Not sure it’s worth staying till the end of credits, but it is pretty hilarious.

Other than that? In terms of complaints I had about the movie, there are some, but not a lot.  But warning, POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD…

One of the things that bugged me was that Peter really didn’t play any big part in the movie. I was SO HOPING this Dad-type character would all of a sudden kick some major ass by the third act, but sadly that wasn’t to be.

But other than that, the only issue I had was with the overall plot. Much like Domino calling the name, “X-Force”, a little derivative, the movie’s plot was a little derivative too.

Basically, if you’ve seen LOOPER, you’ve seen this movie. Didn’t really hinder my enjoyment of the movie. But noticing that was a little disappointing.

But really, that was it.

END OF COMPLAINTS.

But like I said, DEADPOOL 2 is a helluva fun time.

DEADPOOL 2 is in theatres now.
