Review:

This is one of those rare instances when the sequel is better than the original. I loved the first Deadpool movie, but this just about blew it out of the water, and I haven’t even seen the unrated cut yet.

Holy shit, the music, the jokes, the action! It was all spot on. I seriously can’t think of a single complaint and hope to god that Deadpool 3 and X-Force can live up to what Deadpool 2 has done.

Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool, kills all the bad guys, except one. Unfortunately that one ends up destroying all of Reynolds happiness. Due to his mutant ability he is unable to kill himself and finds himself at a loose end. He tries to be an X-Men and that fails. He tries to make his own team, that does not work as planned. Eventually, it takes a time traveling Josh Brolin to tell him his path back into the arms of his love. It’s beautiful.

In a year where we’ve had the fucking amazing Black Panther, Deadpool earns it’s position right up there with it. So good.

5/5

Review:

Alright this review is under maintenance. I watched over Christmas while I was wrapping presents so I wasn’t able to give it my full attention. I watched most, but I want to see it again because what I did see was really good. Planning on purchasing it based on what I saw.

Loved the action. I thought the little bits of comedy really set a good tone for the film. It was serious, but not too serious, it was funny, but not too funny. A hard balance to achieve.

I liked the women in the movie too, they were capable and kicked butt.

Until I watch it more I’m not going to go into anymore.

4/5 *subject to change after another viewing
