Deadpool 2 (2018)



Critic Consensus: Though it threatens to buckle under the weight of its meta gags, Deadpool 2 is a gory, gleeful lampoon of the superhero genre buoyed by Ryan Reynolds' undeniable charm.

Everything that you got in the first film, you get times three.

If you like your cinema understated and refined, then this is not for you. But for the rest of us, there's enough to enjoy here.

I don't think the second film is terrible, I did find it quite dull.

You know when you first see a meme that's fresh, still funny? Now, think about when you see that same meme after 4 months worth of riffing....that's Deadpool 2.

August 26, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review… grand satire here, just self-awareness - and enough surprises, solid jokes and well-crafted action sequences to be entertaining.

August 24, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I enjoyed Deadpool 2. For its humor, for its action sequences, for its relentless breaking of the fourth wall, and for giving us real, undeniable queer ladies.

Audience Reviews for Deadpool 2

Or Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin outline the entertainment/media zeitgeist of the times for us lest we were clueless: to wit, only the crew and the orchestra are not seen in this uber-meta take on the whole superhero movie thing happening lately. Breaking the fourth wall? Check. Referencing the star outside of the film? Check. Referencing other films in the Marvel Universe? Check. Even Thanos??? Even Thanos. Could the internet fans and comic convention fans input be influencing what makes it to the screen anymore? You betcha, and this work is the proof and the tip of the iceberg, the pendulum swinging entirely away from the ol' you'll take what we serve you and you'll like it studio think. This is very nearly a fan made/studio film. And what a ride it is!

Sure, the sequel to the R-Rated smash hit is bigger, louder, faster and more spectacular. There is a "but" behind that sentence, though. The CGI is mediocre, the plot fits on a beer coaster and the decision to kill off a beloved character early on, just to have a good time with anal jokes afterwards is questionable at best. The new additions like Brolin and Beetz work, so do some movie quotes and 4th wall jokes, but unfortunately the potty level is in the majority. Slightly disappointing but the hardcore fans will hardly mind.

Lampshading your insolent, vulgar and filthy ass out and going full I-know-this-is-a-fucking-movie meta can be Deadpool funny, even when you reuse clichés that were already old back in the Bourne trilogy - and as an impudent salad of pop-references it only gets better and better.
