Deadpool 2 (2018)
4 Stars out of 5



Deadpool 2 delivers what is promised, a good time from start to finish. But I have to see, that even though I give both DP1 and DP2 the same star rating, DP1 is the better movie of the two and the reason why that is, DP2 is a different kind of movie than the first. Sure, the skeleton is the same, but the execution is not. As you already know, this is more of a team flick than following the exploits of a single character. And because of that, the focus is kind of scattered. But that does not mean this is a lesser film. I really did enjoy DP2 and for me the biggest thing going for the movie is the inclusion of Cable. Josh Brolin has another kick-ass superhero to add to his arsenal after his turn as Thanos. And speaking of Thanos, leave it to Deadpool to bring that into the discussion when he name drops the character. It really is a great inside-joke that plays perfectly. There's a wealth of inside-jokes and easter eggs to be found throughout the movie. So, you definitely need to be looking out for them going into the movie. Be on the look out for some that include Hugh Jackman and Rob Liefeld.

As for the movie as a whole. It's a fun flick and it actually gave me more than I expected, namely Colossus getting a meaty, kick-ass scene involving Juggernaut. One of the things I was disappointed in the first film was just how little we got from Colossus. The writing was on the wall and it's clear that Ryan and the producers kind of f*cked up in the first film by not doing much with him. In DP2, his throwdown more than makes up for it. The other things of note was that I was totally surprised that as soon as "X-Force" was assembled, they more or less killed off the entire time with the exception of Domino. But with this temporary roadblock, clearly they are setting up X-Force 2.0 to include Cable leading the way moving forward. Another thing to look out for is a cameo of sorts. One that you absolutely want to see. *cough* X-Men *cough*. Oh, and then there is Brad Pitt. I'll leave it at that. It's funny to say the least. So yeah, DP2 is definitely worth a Rent for sure. I look forward to either DP3 or X-Force. Still unclear where they are going first. Either / Or.
