Spoiler-Free Review of Deadpool 2

DP2

Went out last night to see Deadpool 2 and here, in B3 tradition, is the good, the badass, and the ugly.

The Good

Cable – I thought it would be weird having Josh Brolin in another Marvel role so soon after Infinity Wars, but it wasn’t weird at all. Brolin is a top-notch talent.

X-Force – DP2 opens the door to an X-Force movie (which is already in the works).

Blind Al – Leslie Uggams doesn’t get much screen time in DP2, but what time she has is gold.

Alpha Flight – Was that a hint towards an AF movie in the works or just a tip of the hat to Canadian supers?

The Badass

It’s Funny – The jokes are good, not as good as DP1, but Ryan Reynolds was squeezed onto this Earth to play this role.

Dopinder – Karan Soni reprises his role as the lovable cab driver and delivers some serious laughs.

The Vanisher – This bit made me laugh so hard.

Domino – Zazie Beetz is awesome as the latest incarnation of Domino. I keep trying to decide what I think of the use of vitiligo for her spot, it kind of works.

Fire Fist/Russell – Julian Dennison delivers some of the best laughs with his pen. (Prison wallet…smh)

The Ugly

Juggernaught’s helmet looked goofy. What is it about superhero helmets that are so hard to replicate – I’m looking at you Magneto.

Cable’s Choice – Without giving too much away, why wouldn’t Cable return home immediately after accomplishing his goal? It seemed very uncharacteristic. A plot hole to allow him to take part in the X-Force movie.

The Heaven Barrier – The whole subplot was a bit cliche.

Shatterstar – This is just a personal preference but, Im a Shatterstar fan and was excited at the idea of him hitting the big screen. I would have liked a little more Shatterstar.

Sequel Slump – DP1 was a great movie, but the sequel falls short. It is hard to say exactly why, maybe it is the attempt at a semi-serious “good guy” plot.

In Summary

All in all, Deadpool 2 was an enjoyable movie with some genuine laughs, but it fell short of the first installment. Grab the Blu-ray today.
