Funny. Satisfying. Irreverent.
Being both blessed and cursed, Wade Wilson (Reynolds) is back, and so is his zany alter-ego, Deadpool. This time, after a significant tragedy, Wade reevaluates his life and seeks redemption in saving a delinquent mutant kid from a mysterious time traveler, Cable (Brolin). Needing help for his new purpose in life, Wade recruits a group of mutants to be a part of his team, the X-Force (which he acknowledges is pretty derivative). Reynolds is a perfect Deadpool. He carries off the joke a minute, rogue hero with ease, with this outing providing better action sequences and a more engaging plot. That being said, the meta-humor isn’t as fresh as it was first go-around and that’s to be expected, but there’s still enough juice to be consistently funny, clever, and exciting. The non-stop references are a blast as well.
