Deadpool 2 Movie Review Rating: 4/5 Stars (Four stars)
Star Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Julian Dennison, Stefan Kapicic, Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, TJ Miller, Karan Soni, Terry Crews, Rob Delaney.
Director: David Leitch
What’s Good: Following the template as same as Deadpool, this one is fresh, fun and wittier than its predecessor. Ryan Reynolds, behind the mask, does something what most superheroes can’t do without it.
What’s Bad: You can’t watch this movie while having a beverage, because chances are you’ll spill it while laughing out loud.
Loo Break: Do you really want to invite Deadpool while you’re pissing during his movie? AVOID!
Watch or Not?: It’s not about watching this movie or not, the real question is whether you should watch it once or twice? Or whether you should watch it in Hindi or English.
Deadpool 2 continues the story of Wade Wilson, a superhero who terminates the bad guys with his sarcasm. We see Wade Wilson aka Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) poking fun at dead Logan and resting on fuel containers complaining about his death. We all know his obsession for Wolverine and he promises he’ll not let him steal the thunder by dying (Does that means he’s alive? Wait till the post credit scenes to get the hint).
So, Wade as usual is on a bad guys killing spree; all of this leads to an attack at his house. He somewhat manages to get alive out of it and decides to join the X-Men. He hunts down the some bad guys with Colossus (voice of Stefan Kapičić), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) but nothing goes as planned. In course he meets around a young mutant Russell aka firefist (Julian Dennison). Russell is hunted by Cable (Josh Brolin) and the entire story revolves around this hunt and the reasons behind it. Deadpool creates his own Suicide Squad (way more entertaining than the original) and calls it as X-Force.
Deadpool 2 Movie Review: Script Analysis
I know this might sound weird but did Ryan Reynolds took some facial lessons from Jim Carrey for this one? Because he seriously was in that zone while he was delivering the wit. Ryan complaints about lazy writing throughout, and he along with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick has co-written the film. There will be a lot of debate on including an emotional track as the movie touts to be unconventional but for me it’s a winner.
The whole Francis Underwood kind of talking to camera adds the required comical touch. Taking the digs on famous Hollywood flicks like Star Wars, John Wick, X-Men, John Wick and likes has yet again worked in the favour of the film. “How we’ll know we’re living enough if we don’t die a little,” these are the golden words of blind Al which prove to be a subtext for this Deadpool visiting his girlfriend Ness in some Interstellar-inspired parallel world.
Deadpool 2 Movie Review: Star Performance
Ryan Reynolds achieves the zenith of coolness with this movie. For most of the time he’s behind the mask and his verbal approach is Eno to make you fall for him. He also had a side-splitting sequence that includes his tiny legs. His Logan-love has been explored to the core. It’s Ryan who with such an destroyed face can build something so lovable.
Josh Brolin as Cable looks like the cooler humane version of Thanos. He creates the desired impact and comes with an emotional backstory. It’s hard to imagine him as Cable but he fulfils the slot what was required by him.
Karan Soni as Dopinder brags a more meaty role in this sequel. His innocence leads him to brag an important sequence in climax and he is a delight to watch. Morena Baccarin as Vanessa reprises her role from the first one and is there for very short time. But she lights up the screen with her charm for whatever little time she’s there. Julian Dennison as Russell gets a great deal of screentime and thankfully it doesn’t comes as caricaturish. Rest of X-Men team is just about fine with Colossus getting the maximum exposure.
Deadpool 2 Movie Review: Direction, Music
David Leitch is introduced as the man who killed John Wick’s dog, for the obvious reasons we know about. He has treated the Tim Miller’s legacy safely without going overboard. David, who had this tough task to create something from a formula which has limited approach (given the target audience), has put in his every last muscle to pull this thing off. When you’re executing such story you’re standing over a thin line; at one side there’s being funny and on the other side there’s being farce. David has maintained his balance to deliver us this entertainment.
Continuing his love of dubstep from John Wick and Guardians Of Galaxy, Tyler Bates has delivered yet another rocking album with Deadpool 2. The background score and songs are perfectly placed for the situations that arise. A-ha’s Take On Me has been used wonderfully well in the film.
Deadpool 2 Movie Review: The Last Word
All said and done, Deadpool 2 will make you laugh you heart out and it’ll play with the emotions of it. PLEASE WAIT for the post credits scenes, there’s a lot happening in them. Expect whatever you want to, I’m sure you’ll come back enjoying more than that.
