Don Reviews "Deadpool 2"
You can name just about anything in life and there is always “the norm”. In some ways, we get to being engrained and used to what is acceptable and then are shocked when you see someone or something going outside those boundaries. The writers of “Deadpool” have made careers out of it, and now comes the sequel to the 2016 smash hit film.
David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde) directs this time around and is joined by Ryan Reynolds (Buried, The Proposal), Josh Brolin (Milk, No Country for old Men), Zazie Beetz (Applesauce, Geostorm), Morena Baccarin (Serenity, Destiny 2), Brianna Hildebrand (Tragedy Girls, First Girl I Loved), T. J. Miller (Cloverfield, Big Hero 6), Bill Skarsgard (It, Allegiant), Julian Dennison (Shopping, Chronesthesia), Karan Soni (Cleep 2, The Goldbergs), and Eddie Marsan (21 Grams, Concussion). The film starts off a little later after the original left off. You have Wade Wilson/Deadpool (Reynolds) gets a team of new mutants to protect a young mutant named Russell (Dennison) from the evil time traveling mutant named Cable (Brolin).
When it comes to the look, there is a lot of good quality CGI which gives this one the same look as the original. If you saw the original, the acting is about the same, which was still good. I still have to give a shout out to Soni who does great and grows as a character and more than just the cab driver this go around.
I really did like it, but not as much as I enjoyed the first one. The film is about two hours long (which is about the right length) and did not really drag at all. And just like the first one, this film pulls no punches and everyone (even Reynolds himself), just like “South Park”. This film is R for a reason, it has the same adult humor and violence and gore to keep it consistent with the source material, and I will recommend it as a twilight to full price showing in the theaters.
