Deadpool 2 - Movie Review

5 stars

Hey, Meatsicle! Get your ass some popcorn and go to the show this weekend. Another round of great comic book sendoffs has been sent to theaters and you don’t want to miss this shit. At all.  

Tear down this wall. Mr. Gorbachev did it and so does Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, continuing as only he can in that wily Van Wilder way he has, to tear down the 4th wall and address the audience throughout the manic events of Deadpool 2. This film makes “you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence” with one wallop after another, doubling down on the violence of the first in this series.  The result is that the new tale is as good as the first film and that, my friends, means good things for those hardcore Deadheads out there.

And wait until you see what regenerates this time!

Written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Ryan Reynolds, you’ll be wisecracking all the way to the emergency room, Cowpokes and Curly Sues. And most of it has to do with the SHOCKING and SINCERE bond that develops between a disturbed young mutant named Russell (Julian Dennison) and our titular anti-hero. Ah, he DOES have feelings! Maybe the whole Blind Al (Leslie Uggams) ‘ship will pay off after all!

"Deadpool 2 is the tasty comedic desert to the shocking (but filling) main course that was Infinity War."


At the beginning of the movie, well, bad shit happens to Wilson. Really bad shit. It takes him awhile to climb above the darkness in his life and, when he does, he comes rebounding with a sense of purpose (and angst at most Marvel and Disney properties now that Twentieth Century Fox is in step) that really serves this film well. We also have returning Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapicic) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) to make his homecoming feel oh so sweet.

This time, though, Wade Wilson’s adventures are a bit more action-oriented as he goes about assembling a makeshift version of The X-Force – with Terry Crews as Bedlam, Lewis Tan as Shatterstar, Bill Skarsgård as Zeitgeist, and Rob Delaney as, wait for it, Peter – as Josh Brolin as Cage shows up looking and acting all Terminator-like with regards to Firefist…er…the boy wonder Russell. Put into all this a skydiving scene that is damned fantastic and oh so very funny and, yeah, Deadpool 2 is easily (and enthusiastically) mounting its original outing and getting prepared for the wildest lay of its life.

Don’t worry, though. The hilarious jokes and jabs are there (with plenty of references to other movies) and so are the many, many zippy pop culture references that go flying by, begging for repeat viewings. The jabs are fiercer than the original and, as if it is even possible, even funnier, too. Hell, this time we even get a fair share of surprise cameos to make us feel all so very special on the inside. Get the lube ready!

With “luck is not a super power” Domino (Zazie Beetz) making her debut appearance here, his good guy status is set in place even as he protects those mutants laughed out of the X-Men academy. Deadpool 2 is the tasty comedic desert to the shocking (but filling) main course that was Infinity War.

Marvel, like the red-vined candy you are currently choking on, continues to make mouths happy.
