Deadpool 2 Spoiler Review
We’re back for the Deadpool 2 Spoiler review and this time we’ll be pulling out all the stops to give you a more meatier look at the movie which stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin and Zazzie Beetz just to name a few. It’s now showing and distributed by 20th Century Fox.
Again, this Deadpool 2 spoiler review has actual spoilers so if you havent seen the movie or you just hate spoilers I can direct you to my non-spoiler review.
And just in case you’ve seen the movie and don’t quite follow the ending, you can also check out my explainer post.
So here we go.
Deadpool 2 is a family film. While you don’t believe it, it’s actually true. They weren’t lying but don’t expect the cinema to let your kid inside. The sequel still has everything you loved from the first movie, CGI fights, swearing, gore, violence, sexual innuendos, sexual humor, and more of Deadpool and his dirty mouth and mind.
In this outing we also get introduced to a couple of new characters like Cable and Domino as well as concepts like the X-Force; all of which are integral if Fox actually wants to do an X-Force movie in the future. You can smell the world-building from a mile away.
Continuity is one of Deadpool’s second outing and we get to see him evolve and “mature” to be a willing dad. It even shows how flimsy it is towards the end with the Deadpool getting a hold of Cable’s time travel device to fix “wrongs” made to him and his people including “Barakapool” and “Green Lantern”.
Josh Brolin’s Cable is something to behold too. They did twist his back story a little bit making Hope Summers his genuine daughter as opposed to an adopted daughter which was what happened in the crossover Messiah CompleX. They never did bother to explain why he looks the way he does and that one I can totally get behind with. It’s something filmmakers can explore in the future movies or even a solo Cable movie.
The humor fluctuates in Deadpool 2 to be honest. One minute you find yourself laughing hard at a quip and the next you’re thinking, didn’t they do this back in the first movie? Then at the same time, they do inject some added humor from other characters in the movie as opposed to in the past where it was just Deadpool generating all the laughs. This time even characters like Domino gets to be sassy (no pun intended).
For this Deadpool 2 spoiler review, I also have to point out who utterly disappointed I am of how they treated X-Force. Sure it was fun and all that but my heart bled a bit with how almost all the members of X-Force (i.e. Bedlam, Zeitgeist, Shatterstar, Vanisher) except for Domino met their demise. Couldn’t we have at least seen them in action. The trailers indicated that they shot some scenes with them. Maybe we all have to wait for the release of the DVD and Blu-Ray to get to see more of them.
I give 20th Century Fox and director David Leitch major props for making Juggernaut cool as well. All is forgiven for that horrid Juggernaut from X3… well… we still like the “I’m the Juggernaut bitch” meme to death so except for that.
So much easter eggs and quips and toilet humor and a bit of implied drug use all makes for some wacky two hours of your life. It’s definitely hard to top what the first Deadpool movie did when it premiered but this isn’t so bad. And take note too, its a sequel so it’s supposed to be bad but this one, isn’t even on par with bad. I’d say it was pretty good.
Special thanks to 20th Century Fox Philippines for the invite. Deadpool 2 is now showin in 2D, 3D and IMAX.
