Deadpool 2 review
70 Views No comments

A good movie

To be honest, after I saw the trailer, I got slightly worried but since I loved 'Deadpool' so much, I was still quite eager to check this sequel. Fortunately, it turned out to be pretty entertaining, even if its predecessor was much better. The problem was mostly due to the fact that since 'Deadpool' had turned out to be such a tremendous success, they thought that they had to double the budget but this plan actually backfired. Indeed, there were more big action scenes and many more characters involved but, as a result, it felt like a much more generic super-hero flick with only more blood and cursing which was slightly disappointing. Another mistake they made was to bring back all the supporting characters (Deadpool's girlfriend, Deadpool's blind roommate, Deadpool's buddy bartender, Deadpool's buddy cab driver,...). I mean, the recipe for a good sequel is never to bring EXACTLY the same things that worked the first time around. At least, they could have delivered some other cool X-Men like Mystic, Magneto, Professor Xavier or even StormĀ  (with the success of the first movie, it should have been doable) instead of, again, Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead. I was also slightly disappointed by Domino who was prominently displayed on all the promotional material but this character didn't turn out to be so entertaining after all. On the other hand, Josh Brolin, after being already impressive as Thanos in 'Avengers: Intinity War' just a couple of weeks before, was just really badass as Cable. And, of course, Deadpool remains such an awesome fun character, Ryan Reynolds was obviously having a total blast and the guy completely nailed it again. Eventually, they will have to be careful with the inevitable 3rd installment and make sure they bring something really new and interesting on the table but it is still worked this time around and the damned thing is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
