Deadpool 2

Sequel to the Golden Globe-nominated comic book action romantic comedy starring Ryan Reynolds as the foul-mouth murdering anti-hero. Deadpool forms a team to protect a young mutant (Julian Dennison, Hunt for the Wilderpeople) from time traveling mercenary Cable (Josh Brolin, Avengers: Infinity War). Helmed by David Leitch, co-director of the first John Wick.

"After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfil his dream of becoming Mayberry's hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavour - finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World's Best Lover."

The original Deadpool was a bit of a miracle. It sounded terrible on paper but seemed to work in spite of itself, then went on to make a small fortune at the box office and convince industry pundits everywhere that superhero movies had to have swearing now.

The first Deadpool movie was something of a paradox: a breath of fresh air in the form of a fart in the audience’s face. The film and its lewd motormouth protagonist were irreverent with a capital “i”, keen to come across as outré and in-your-face. Rambunctious self-awareness was a key factor, loosening the structure of the stock-standard superhero story while simultaneously adhering to its formula.

In almost every respect, this sequel is an improvement on its 2016 predecessor: Sharper, grosser, more narratively coherent and funnier overall, with a few welcome new additions.

Unfortunately, two movies in, the Deadpool franchise has not only already run out of jokes - it's become everything it was supposed to hate.

As with the original, Deadpool 2 thrives on tone over narrative.

It's a long movie and when its star isn't on screen and cracking wise, the boundary-pushing shocks and endless self-references wear thin.

What drives this franchise is the same force that drives so much culture and politics right now: the self-pity of a white man with a relentless need to be the centre of attention.

Deadpool 2 ups the quota so that nearly every line of dialogue now includes something for us to laugh at. It starts to feel a bit strained after a while.

Despite a tendency toward elephantitis in story and scope, not to mention blatant franchise pandering, Deadpool 2 still plays like the runt of the comic-book litter. We mean that as a compliment.

It's wildly irreverent, incredibly funny and gleefully embraces its over the top violence. Recommended, obviously.

If the first Deadpool entirely baked your meringue then Deadpool 2 is obviously exactly the same recipe served at perfect room temperature.

The film's impulse to profess a knowing, snarky superiority can become painfully awkward.

With Reynolds' charismatic irreverence at its core, the pic moves from bloody mayhem to lewd comedy and back fluidly, occasionally even making room to go warm and mushy.

...a joyous, violent, profane and occasionally quite sweet cinema experience worthy of the original.
