[Vasco da Gama] "I'm a grower not a shower." / Let down of the year: Political incorrectness was swallowed whole by Political Correctness, how come...? F-word? F is for Family? Is this DisneyWorld? Why did they compromise...? Narrative is very boring and predictable. Prison wallet is a term that's gonna haunt me.
Even with a different director, this film still keeps the style that made the first one so good but also brings a new freshness to it that feels not only like a continuation but a larger step into a whole new genre of smartass superheroes who pop up in everything. Here's hoping we get a lot more Deadpool and not just in stand alone movies either, Avengers and X-Men cameos would be nice too.
After being indifferent to the original at home, there was one name that got me into theaters for "Deadpool 2": David Leitch. I found his particular flair for action kind of drowned out by the demands of the big-budget, CG-fueled superhero genre, but at least this sequel doubles down on the meta qualities that worked so well in the original and tells its story with the confidence that comes from knowing you're a hit.
While more manic and slightly more exhausting than its accomplished predecessor, "Deadpool 2" not only sticks to formula but doubles down, leaving no ambiguity in its tone or intentions. Some things I wasn't expecting: a plethora of engaging supporting performances, an eclectic soundtrack, and an extended sequence involving an off-brand, gender-neutral "X-Men" supergroup that scores some hearty laughs.
At this point, I am convinced Ryan Reynolds is Deadpool- no other actor should ever play him. This was a good vehicle for the character that also happens to be a nice tribute to the Hollywood films of Paul Verhoeven and 80's era James Cameron, with the plot being a cross between The Terminator and Robocop.
Al igual que su predecesora, DEADPOOL 2 se trata de otra divertida e irreverente mirada critica a las convenciones del cine de superheroes y del cine de acción en general, así como una buena muestra del ingenio y la "bis" cómica del actor Ryan Reynolds, sin duda, el principal artifice detrás de ésta franquicia.
Ryan Reynolds is made for this role: pithy meta tropes that align seamlessly to his star persona. As for the narrative itself, it is a patchy CGI-fest aiming for edgy but still remains a little clunky round the edges. For Deadpool 3, the writing needs a reboot, but there's more than enough source material and reserves within Reynolds' improvisational nous to see the franchise go from strength-to-strength.
