Deadpool is hilarious. The constant 4th Dimension jokes, the pop culture jabes and everything make both of the films everything we need them to be. Deadpool 2 definitely didn’t disappoint.
While I wasn’t expecting any of the turns that this film took, I definitely enjoyed not only the way it was made and the story line but also the character development which is essential for any and all films. I have to say that from the initial maybe half-an-hour when the film took a dark turn, I expected it to be a sad one (I didn’t watch the trailer prior to watching the film), and I am glad it didn’t turn to be a sad film.
Yes, Deadpool 2 has a more serious note to it than the first film, but it’s still good.
(Beware of spoilers)
Wade’s story does not continue the way he expects it to – he cannot start the family life that he desperately dreamed for with Vanessa and because of that he takes on the path of revenge because he was pulled away from everything he ever dreamed of. He acknowledges his friendships with Collosus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead and they take him in once there is pretty much nothing else for him to do, trying to get him to go back on the right path. While being an X-Men trainee, he, Negasonic and Collosus go on a mission to a Mutant School and there he meets an angry kid that he tries to help all the meanwhile being pretty much suicidal. I told you this film takes a dark turn. With several close-to-death encounters, Wade realizes that he should help this kid and aid him in becoming the best possible version of himself, all the while fighting (first against and then alongside) a guy from the future who is out for blood.
The film is packed with action, jokes with pop culture references and while dealing with the topics of loss, suicide, trauma, it is also centered around the topics of redemption and family.
I was really impressed by this film and I can safely say that it is a worthy follow-up to Deadpool and I would highly recommend you watch it if you liked the first film.
Did you watch it? What did you think?
