      Default Deadpool : 2 - An Opinion

      Before getting to this movie, let me confess that I am not hugely impressed by Deadpool. I agree that the movie did break some rules in superhero genre and provided a wacky touch which created a huge following for this series. But when we take a look at the storyline, I believe it didn't do much improvement and honestly the action sequences in this movie as forgettable.

      Then I realized that you need to take the superhero genre seriously and see it as a breaking the fourth wall R rated comedy with blood & gore. Now Deadpool : 2 is a step ahead in terms of the blood, gore and the R Rated comedies. Now this is quite a good news for its fans and thats the reason why the movie is rated better than the previous by the various sites. Still the storyline is flat (if not worse) as before. If you are Deadpool fan, the movie has everything you like. The self mockery, dig at superhero movies especially DC, breaking the fourth wall moments, pop culture references etc. Infact I felt this time, it went a bit overboard with the racist/ethnic jokes. I believe the makers believe that with Deadpool, everything is acceptable. Yet there were some hilarious moments like the X Force first mission with a blink a moment surprise, Domino's luck etc. But all depends on how much you can digest R rated jokes, your awareness about pop culture and above all violence and harsh jokes.

      Ryan Reynolds simply enjoys playing Deadpool. Maybe he is doing with Downey did with Stark. Eventhough I expected Brolin to steal the show as Cable (which he did a good job), its Zazie Beetz who made Domino steal the show at times. Then there is the recurring cast of the prequel where Karan Soni got more screentime as Joginder.

      The action sequences looked pretty average (Especially after the Infinity Wars). As I mentioned, it was mostly blood, gore and CGIs. Deadpool continued the habit of delivering hilarious opening credits where this time they trolled Bond Credits using Celine Dion's "Ashes". And of course the best part IMO was the post credits sequence which is a must atch. (BTW, there is no END CREDITS scene towards the tail end)

      Deadpool 2 is a movie is quite hard to rate. It all depends on how much you liked the previous movie. If you are fan, its a definite recco...if you are not, its not a huge recco.

      Deadpool is a very popular comic character, breaking the 4th wall is his speciality. They were trying to make this movie right from 2008, but the studios din agree due the Insolent nature of the character,
      The worst thing happened to the character was Xmen origins. they killed his introduction. Deadpool is not at all like that.

      Even though deadpool is a part of Xmen universe , the tone and character is very funny. Cable & deadpool, Wolverine & Deadpool are really a great team (there are many comics with them as team). there are many video games also which are really R rated voiced by Nolan North.

      If you want to enjoy deadpool, you need to know who the character is, He knows he s part of a comic universe. He makes jokes when he s in pain. Deadpool also knows he s in a cinematic universe now, so more than the story, its the character which you have to relate to. Once you get to know him, you will enjoy deadpool more. He just cant shut up, even when he is dying

      I have seen many critics reviewing this movie, without even knowing a tiny teeny bit about the character. I have seen your other comic movie reviews, so I can confidently say that, once you relate to the character, you will enjoy him more. And there are lot of inside jokes, like calling cable one eyed willy - since Goonies was his first film. So if you see it the next time, you will enjoy it more and notice many things which you din notice the first time. I watched deadpool 3 times and loved it more with every rewatch.



      NB: don't compare the action sequences and graphics with infinity wars , the budget they allowed for deadpool is not 1/4th that of other Marvel movies [Fox then , now Disney]
