Ryan Reynolds is finally back in the highly anticipated sequel to what could be one of Marvel’s greatest yet most idiotic superhero, Deadpool. David Leitch, delivers an action-packed cinematic experience, however, with a very oh so gentle script that needed a much more stronger dialogue, one that ended up being slightly light and very kid-friendly.
The sequel rarely, if ever, lives up to the first one and that was proven here. It ended up being Disney and soft compared to the first one, and that was a disappointment. The script was kind of weak in the sense of conversations and Deadpool’s lines, it tried so hard to come off as hilarious and raw but it ended up being close to desperate.
Here, we get to follow Wade Wilson AKA Deadpool, gather a team of mutants to save a young boy from supernatural powers that even himself cannot handle. Together, they all join forces and it all becomes a roller coaster of fast cars, explosions, and fun.
Ryan Reynolds is phenomenal and shines like a diamond in the darkened sky as Deadpool, and delivered another fantastic performance, and thankfully it wasn’t overshadowed by the somewhat weak script that was missing more of the raw vulgarity humor that the first one had.
The action is there, the visual just as beautiful, but it still didn’t satisfy my burning yearning for everything that is Deadpool. 6.5/10
