Back then the makers of the film took a gamble and kept the film R-rated to do justice to the foul mouthed ass kicking, quick witted and sarcastic superhero Deadpool. The film which released amid much fanfare went on to work brilliantly well at the box office, warranting a sequel.
But will the sequel work its magic at the box office, or will it like so many other franchise sequels bite the bullet is the question.
However, Deadpool being well basically Deadpool, manages to bugle things up when they are called to assist with a rogue mutant kid.
Unfortunately, a super soldier from the future, Cable Josh Brolin travels back in time to eliminate Russell and save his era. Will Deadpool manage to protect Russell whom he has developed a liking for, will Cable prove to be too overpoweringly strong, or will Deadpool finally join the X-Men, are some of the questions that make up the rest of the film.
Going into a film like DEADPOOL 2 you are faced with the question of how can the makers live up to the expectation that have been developed by the first film? Coupled with this is the fact that the makers are faced with a task of making a film wherein the lead character is constantly able to break through the fourth wall and communicate with the audience.
David Leitch has done a marvellous job of interweaving the story of Wade Wilson AKA Deadpool along with the narrative that gives the character enough leg room to pass some snarky comments and establish a rapport with the viewer.
Double innuendo gags, well scripted humour and oneliners that come with a punch are some of the high points of the film. However despite this, DEADPOOL 2 does have moments that can leave some viewers a little lost, yes we are indeed referring to the multiple references to pop culture, films from the years gone by that have burned themselves into memory and some latest releases too.
But with a lead character that is aware of these references, it becomes a breeze to watch a comic character come to life on the big screen. Coming to the performances in the film, Deadpool 2 is as the name would suggest a Ryan Reynolds film all the way.
With Reynolds going all out to infuse life into the character in the process spilling some of his own real life charm and charisma into it, the film rests firmly on his shoulders.
Other cast members who have prominent roles in the film like Cable for instance, played by none other than Thanos err… sorry… Josh Brolin is on point yet again. Be it playing the mad titan or the time travelling super soldier, Brolin brings a depth to his character that is rarely seen on the big screens these days.
Assisting the stellar performances in the film is the action.
Like the first DEADPOOL 2 keeps the action crisp and limited, not going overboard with bodies flying lends the film a more plausible feel thus developing a better rapport with the viewer. Another aspect of the film that works well with the on screen happenings is the background score.
But since the lead character is able to break through the fourth wall, the background score more or less acts like a playlist for the character as he goes about his business.
This concept helps audience unconsciously prepare for an upcoming sequence without realizing that they have been drawn into it. But what is all this without the amazing visuals, right? For those who like superhero films, this one is a superhero film with a difference.
Deadpool 2 English 3.The sheer number of dick jokes will soon numb you to their impact, but this is a fun, if patchy, alternative to the glut of ‘the world is about to end unless we do something’ comic-book films.
