Deadpool 2

He's not coming alone.

After suffering an unforeseen tragedy, a disfigured mercenary with a mutant power must find a reason to keep on living instead of finding new ways to attempt to end his existence. He finds that purpose in the form of a mutant child being hunted by a superpowered cyborg from the future and sets out to create a new team of skilled individuals, in their own fields, to help him protect the child.

Wade Wilson is the mercenary known as Deadpool who is forced to go on a journey of self -discovery as an X-Men Trainee in hopes of finding a meaning to his life after a loss he has recently sustained. Domino is a mutant gun for hire with the ability to manipulate probability in her favor who joins Deadpool’s team known as X-Force to help on the team’s inaugural mission to protect a young boy. Russell Collins aka Firefist is a mutant with pyrokinetic powers who wants nothing more than to make the staff at the Mutant Re-education Center he found himself in suffer for what they put him through while there. Cable is a cybernetically enhanced soldier from the future who has traveled to past to kill Firefist so he never gets a chance kill his wife and daughter when he becomes a hate fueled adult.

Deadpool 2 is a sequel that gives its audience more of all the things that the first movie had with full force. The rub of the matter is that as it gives you more jokes, it also gives you a higher amount of jokes that don’t quite hit the mark. This sequel also aims at the comic buying public with a general awareness of the new characters being introduced this go-around and that may alienate some of the moviegoers who only have a passing knowledge with no intention of doing homework to fill in the blanks. Josh Brolin does a great job with Cable and Zazie Beetz is able to capture the attitude of Domino perfectly, but I have to hand it to Julian Dennison for giving a performance that had layers that I was not expecting. David Leitch does a solid job directing this sequel but it is obvious where his strengths lie when compared to the director of the first feature who had a better feel for the character and the world he inhabited. The writing team from the first film Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick return with the addition of Ryan Reynolds which explains the onslaught of joke after joke which packs in every laugh they think they can get out of the material. This is a comedy action film for adults who grew up with not only this character, but also this type of mature humor that is a breath of fresh air for the reality most of us have to face in our day to day life. I rate this movie a rating of 4 out of 5.
THERE IS NO END CREDIT SCENE... but there is a funny mid-credit scene so you can keep watching until that is done, if you have to run home to pay the babysitter for all of the responsible parents out there. B~)
