Deadpool 2 is a gleefully profane sequel, full of action and raunchy pizzazz. Ryan Reynolds was born to play this role.
The merc with the mouth returns with more offensive jokes, more violent set pieces and a Josh Brolin cyborg. Deadpool 2 is a blast from the first frame until the last frame. The first Deadpool (2016) became a worldwide sensation, bringing in $783 million on a low $58 million budget. Making it the highest-grossing R-rated movie in box office history and the highest-grossing X-Men film. While the second feature didn’t top its predecessor’s box office gross, nevertheless; this anti-superhero proved not to be a fluke. Currently, the second go-around is sitting at $734 million worldwide. Director David Leitch (Atomic Blonde) swings this sequel back to action, with a touch of sass.
We return with the foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA Deadpool, AKA a never better Reynolds), who brings together a team of fellow mutant mongrels (X-Force) to protect a young boy (a fantastic Julian Dennison) with supernatural abilities. My favorite new mercenary being Domino (played by a fierce Zazie Beetz). Their mission is to keep the boy safe from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg named Cable (a grumpy Brolin). And that’s all of the plot I am willing to give away. Overall, this is another slick adventure with our dirty little friend. You'll laugh until your sides hurt, especially during the mid-credits scene. Deadpool 2 amps up the action, jokes and chimichangas all into one nicely packaged movie extravaganza.
Deadpool 2 is rated R (Restricted). For strong violence and language throughout, sexual references and brief drug material.
