Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy of supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling mutant, Cable.
Ryan Reynolds (of Green Lantern fame) returns to screen with DEADPOOL sequel, directed by David Leitch (stylish and energetic Atomic Blonde director). Film has more jokes, more action, more freaks with superpowers and is made with more budget than its predecessor. The story in the sequel is stronger with a less generic narrative and it keeps the action crisp and limited, not going overboard with bodies flying that lends the film a more plausible feel, thus developing a better rapport with the viewer. Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds / Deadpool) dominates every scene in the film, steamrollering everyone around him. He’s using his new powers to slice and dice much bigger opponents, taking out whole gangs of bad guys at every time. The slick merger of CGI and VFX into live action makes this sequel more watchable. They are blended into the mix seamlessly. Thus it delivers that extra bit of punch when it matters the most. David Leitch has done a marvelous job of interweaving the story of Wade Wilson (Deadpool) along with the narrative that gives the character enough leg room to pass some snarky comments and establish a rapport with the viewer. Deadpool 2 throws everything it has at you until you throw your arms up in happy surrender. Like its predecessor, the sequel is a grab-bag of humor, sorrow, sensation and silliness. The script bulges with rapid-fire one-liners and references to just about everything. Not only does the sequel explore this flawed character, it firmly establishes him as a lovable and effective hero. Deadpool 2 may not achieve the same level of success as the first film, still its a worth a watch.
Sequel can’t match its predecessor for originality. However, crazy action, wicked humour, madcap and timed one liners makes this SUPERHERO film a worthy watch.
