Review: ‘Deadpool 2’

The tight ass in red tights is back!

When I reviewed the first “Deadpool” movie, I literally loved it. It’s one of the few superhero movies that I watched more than once. A lot of that has to do with the fact that it’s just not a superhero movie. It was a comedy that happened to be in a superhero universe. “Deadpool 2” follows suit to this very well.

Directed by “Atomic Blonde” director David Leitch, “Deadpool 2” follows everyone favorite potty-mouthed mercenary Wade Wilson as he tries to find his place after heartbreak happens to him. During his “figuring out life” phase, Deadpool must form his own team to protect a young mutant child from a future mutant, Cable, who is looking to kill him.

This movie is just as good as the first. Deadpool continues to be one of my favorite superhero movie franchises. The movie seems just as fresh and new. None of it came across as overdone or overplayed. It played to its strength, which is the writing, the acting, and the action. At first watch, it seemed too much like the original. It wasn’t until I watched them back-to-back that I saw that they play into each other but

“Deadpool 2” is way less gory than the what was in the first movie. There’s still a lot of gore but it’s not anything close to what was featured in “Deadpool.” It almost felt like they were trying to make a family friendly R rated movie. That sounds like a double negative but that’s what it felt like it was doing. It didn’t hurt the movie but it was just very noticeable.

I really enjoyed “Deadpool 2.” I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first one but that was only because you can only enjoy something like that only once. I highly recommend this. Especially if you have seen the first one. I also, watch the credits as well. There are some extra scenes there.
