What is it about: It’s a sequel to the 2016 film Deadpool, in this Wade Wilson a.k.a Deadpool forms a team X-Force to save a kid from Cable. The film is directed by David Leitch.
Why it’s disappointing: This could stay put for this movie.
What to watch out for: This is one superhero film, which has caught everyone’s attention, that is the both Marvel and the DC fans. It has a track which mercilessly trolls every movie which you must have enjoyed in the past decade or beyond. And the way the writers Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick with Ryan Reynolds stepping in too as one of the writers have put in a great amount of humour, that it keeps lingering even after the film is over. Right from the opening credits until the rolling end credits there’s so much wit that you don’t run out of laughs. One may say the content is quite meagre in this sequel, but DP is just building on the franchise and I would say it’s the right amount to start the wheel spinning.
Obviously Ryan Reynolds rocks the entire show, but he got even better in this sequel and threw in more one-liners which you can’t stop talking about. He’s got an amazing sense of humour which is quite hard to match.
Adding to him was Zazie Beetz as Domino, she was new but had what the X-Force required.
Josh Brolin as Cable was hard hitting and did bring a dimension. Colossus, Blind Al and Dopinder. These characters are the glue which holds the emotional quotient of Deadpool.
Julian Dennison as Russell Collins did a great job and made sure his presence was strongly felt.
The high point of the film after humour was action which was Kick-Ass, to be precise beyond kick-ass. The choreography was sharp and hard hitting. The VFX was seamless and IMAX did gave that extra room for the superhero’s to perform limitless. The sound design crisply enveloped all the chaos Wade Wilson was creating the film.
The cinematography was racy by Jonathan Sela and was tightly edited by Dirk, Craig and Elisabet. The score by Tyler Bates was an added quotient to the film.
Verdict: David Leitch, did a fantastic job in putting together this sequel which had the essence of the first intact and paved a steady path for the franchise to lead on. Definitely worth a watch, and don’t miss the two post credit scenes in the film.
