Tell me if you have heard this one, a time traveling Cyborg goes to the past to kill a kid before he can commit horrible crimes in the future.
Yeah it sounds a lot like the plot to a Terminator film doesn’t it?
However, what Deadpool 2 has but a Terminator film never could was everybody’s favourite merc with the mouth to make fun of the similarities.
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the original Deadpool, the surprise hit that took Deadpool from his embarrassing debut in X Men Origins: Wolverine to his lovable, foul mouthed, fourth-wall breaking self that we know and love.
And there is definitely plenty of fourth wall breaking to be had in Deadpool 2, with Ryan Reynolds killing it as the titular hero.
No one can deny it at this point that Reynolds was born to play this character.
As I stated, the film features Cable, the time traveling cyborg who is played by Josh Brolin, going to kill a kid named Russel, the kid who will commit horrible crimes and is played by Julian Dennison.
However, due to a both tragic and hilarious series of events, Deadpool gets thrown into the mix and fights to protect Russel by forming a new “derivative” superhero team, known as X-Force.
Deadpool 2 is a blast of comedy from start to finish, with hilarious meta jokes and entertaining action sequences, with more than a few surprises along the way.
Reynolds is not the only excellent actor in this as Brolin and Dennison also do great jobs in their roles and are funny when they need to be.
As for returning characters Collosus, played by Stephen Kapicic, and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, played by Brianna Hildebrand, it was good to see them again.
Although, I will admit I was a bit disappointed with how Negasonic and her newly introduced girlfriend Yukio, played by Shioli Kutsuna, were utilized because these two characters felt very underused.
The real standout new character though was Domino, played by Zazie Beetz, whose superpower of luck was very cinematic, no matter what Deadpool says.
As for the comedy, it was spot on and had me laughing numerous times to the point that it hurt.
Numerous films were referenced and parodied from Logan, to Batman V Superman, to even Basic Instict.
Probably the funniest moment of the entire movie was the mid-credits sequence, which is probably the best one ever done so make sure to stick around for it.
However, although most of the jokes were hilarious there was one right at the end that went on way longer than it should have.
Overall Deadpool 2 was a blast to watch.
Is it better than the first one?
I am unsure at this point but it definitely depends on how you view the first film on whether you will like this one or not.
