Title: Deadpool 2
Director: David Leitch
Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Julian Dennison, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller
So the biggest issue with Deadpool 2, is how loose it is. The first film, was a tightly wrapped ball of energy. It was a ball that was being pushed along by the charisma of Ryan Reynolds. While Reynolds, doesn't disappoint here, the film is constantly being threatened to come unraveled. For the most part, somehow, Deadpool 2 never crosses that line. However, there are moments that never quite land and the film can feel crammed; in particular with its jokes, which sometimes feel too forced. That being said, Deadpool 2 is just as entertaining as the first. When the shtick is working, it's really working. Josh Brolin, is also really solid as Cable. I may even prefer his Cable, to his Thanos. The aforementioned Reynolds, was simply born to play this character. His charm and wit, once again make this movie work. The story doesn't always land, but the sheer entertainment value of the film overshadows the problems. The supporting cast of characters, also help the film a lot. If you liked the first, you will like this one. I wish it was a little bit tighter though. Still, it's really entertaining.
