Deadpool 2 is NOT for children. Do NOT even think about taking kids to this flick. If you liked Deadpool, you will be very happy. Even had a debate with my husband. He liked this second one even more. I felt the first was fresher, but still felt that 2 was worthy – rude humor, snark and more snark, and just laugh out loud inappropriate at times. Clever snappy dialogues and monologues keep this film a hoot. There are lots of references to current flicks, Ryan himself, Canada takes a few kicks, he jokes about Marvel vs. DC, and sometimes talks to the camera. The movie is ridiculously ultra-violent and fast paced. It’s definitely in its own league in the action hero arena.
Basically Wade (Ryan Reynolds) as Deadpool grieves his dead wife and wants to die. However, he does come to help Russell (Zazie Beetz) a teen mutant who can create fireballs with his hands. A soldier from the future, Cable (Josh Brolin) is trying to kill Russell because he knows what the kid does as an adult and how it affects his family. Despite Deadpool’s supposed jaded spirit, he convinces Domino, Colossus, and more to join forces and try to just stop the kid. Turn him away from his future. This all gets very convoluted. As I read this paragraph I realize I am not conveying the urgency of the situation. Just go with it and trust me.
You will laugh, groan, and laugh some more. Leslie Uggams as Blind Al is a hoot. The credits are hysterical, and stay for the bonus two extras during final credit time. Deadpool 2 kicks off summer movie season with a blast. Enjoy air-conditioning, big screen, popcorn worthy entertainment. And yes, it’s all SO wrong….keep laughing.
