Review: Deadpool 2

Can you guess from which 80's movie this was inspired from? 

When Deadpool first came out in 2016, it pushed the envelope fpr R-Rated Super Hero films. A gamble, which meant a potential loss of revenue by missing out what a younger audience can bring in. This, in exchange of making the fans happier by staying faithful to a character's story and personality. 

Well, needless to say 20th Century Fox's gamble paid off, with the first Deadpool movie earning over $783 million and even beating out other super hero films in box office earnings. It has also become the overall highest-grossing R-rated film. 

While the film gained both financial and critical success, its plot was pointed out as being too formulaic and simple. Something which Deadpool 2 has been able to remedy by putting Deadpool right in the middle of the wrath of a Mad Titan--er a time travelling mutant rather, Cab;e, played by Josh Brolin (who also plays Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War), hence the reference. Something which you would surely get a lot of in the movie, as Deadpool mercilessly alludes to every possible superhero and pop culture reference you can think of.

Definitely BIGGER than its predecessor, "Deadpool 2" brings 'the merc with a mouth' to a CRAZIER adventure as he struggles to find his place while rescuing a young mutant, leading a potential superhero team, all the while fighting off an intense mutant from the future! 

Following a more complicated, surprising and unexpected plot than the first film, while still delivering its unique brand of humor and action sequences "Deadpool 2" gives a lot to laugh about and a few (BIG) surprises to enjoy as well

Some jokes and gags may run longer than they should and unfortunately made me a little bit anxious but everything is forgiven in the end, given how bold and daring this reluctant hero has become.

Ryan Reynolds continues to be the charming yet annoying antihero and Josh Brolin was impressive and enjoyable as the gritty and deadpan Cable. Zazie Beetz as Domino is a welcome addition to the team, I wouldn't mind having her powers. 

Its rare for sequels to be better than their predecessors but 'Deadpool 2' gets it done, with nothing but the world for him to conquer, you will surely continue to enjoy the guilty pleasures of this antihero. 

Leave the kids at home, this one is rated R-16 for a reason.
