Another Saturday night has come and gone meaning another movie just had to be watched. This week HBO actually had on something that I not only wanted to see, but something that I didn’t already see in the theater. That is a rare occurrence now a days which is why after Game of Thrones I will be giving up my HBO subscription since there’s really nothing good going on. Anyway, I enjoyed the first Deadpool, which you can read my review of here, so I had some really high expectations going in for the sequel. Keep reading to see if this movie met my very high expectations.
Deadpool 2 continues the story of Wade Wilson, played by Ryan Reynolds, who is now immortal thanks to some experimentation that was done on him because of his incurable cancer. Living his life as Deadpool, Wade is happy as can be until a life changing event with Vanessa, played by Morena Baccarin, takes place and Wade just wants to try to find a way to die. He’ll live even more recklessly as he normally does until Cable, played by Josh Brolin, comes from the future to stop Deadpool from helping out a new super villain Fire Fist, played by Julian Dennison. Will Cable be able to do this? Will Deadpool actually be able to kill himself? All of this and more will be answered in this exciting sequel.
I really enjoyed this sequel because it took the first movie and just amplified it by 100%. If you thought the first movie was way over the top, the second one is even more over the top than the first one. I didn’t think it was possible, but it totally is and was as the action scenes were more intense, the story line was way more over the top, and the comedy was also way more over the top. This movie exceeded all of my expectations. I thought this didn’t fall into any of the sequel tropes that usually occur and I’m eager to see the third movie hoping that it will be just as original as this one was and even more over the top if that’s even possible.
Ryan Reynolds is just a great Deadpool. I really can’t see anyone else playing Deadpool and once his time as Deadpool is up I’m really going to miss him and really can’t see this being done with anyone else. That being said, the supporting cast is great as well as it brings back Brianna Hildebrand and T.J. Wells and introduces new characters Josh Brolin and Zazie Beetz. The cast works really well together and even though the movie heavily relies on Ryan Reynolds. He does a good job of pulling the cast together and making this the best movie it can be.
Overall I give this movie a 5 out of 5.
If you loved the first Deadpool, this is a definite watch as it just continues Wade’s journey and leaves it open for yet another sequel. If you haven’t seen the first Deadpool, it’s a must watch and you’ll have to watch it before this movie so that you know what’s going on going in. This movie relies heavily on the fact that you’ve watched the first movie. I would say that if you’re a Marvel fan this is a much watch and even if you aren’t, why not give this series a try? It’s action packed, funny, and has an actual story that’s good. Either way I put this movie on my must watch list.
