Deadpool is perhaps one of the most slaptick comedy superhero films in recent memory that I could remember watching and it helps that an actor as effective as Ryan Reynolds gave life to the Marvel’s out of the box comic character. If you’ve enjoyed the first film back in 2016, you’d definitely love this sequel even more!
Here, we see Deadpool’s inner mother hen in protecting the young mutant Russell (Julian Dennison) from another mutant Cable played by Josh Brolin (ooohhh Thanos…hhheeeelllppp!!!!). It is a feel good plot that delivers enough emotional punch that will make you say awww… every now and then. It’s very easy to say that this Deadpool here is definitely more emotional than the first one.
Deadpool 2 returns with more barrage of pop culture references that it almost made me wonder how the young millenials will be able to relate to it. But despite of its R16 rating, Wade Wilson aka Deadpool with his crude humor and grit to match is still as charming as ever.
This is a must-watch for fans and regular viewers alike if you’re up for a good laugh and a hearty anticipation for the next installment.
