I was never a fan of the first movie so I came in with low expectations. Deadpool 2 was actually funny but it still wasn’t as absurd and as irreverent as I thought it could be. I felt that the classic hero plot of Deadpool 2 clashed with its supposed irreverence.
Read my review here: ‘Deadpool 2’ is a Tumblr Full of Memes with a Plot (ClickTheCity).
It still holds that the best thing about this movie was its title credits, which were hilarious. The James Bond homage/parody for its opening number was stellar. The jokes? Not really to my taste. Just a lot of curse words and making fun of competing movies and real people, which I see often at Twitter.
It did manage to surprise me, which I enjoyed. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it, because you will.
But it’s Zazie Beetz that really breaks out here and she’s going to go places.
