Deadpool 2 – Rate 5.5/10
Deadpool is one of the most comedic Marvel characters and is loved by many. I had a really great time watching this movie since I enjoyed the first one. However, I felt a more relaxed comedic side of this film as this story focused more on a direct plot.
Right off the bat, Deadpool made me laugh. The soundtrack to this film was absolutely PERFECT. Every song used seemed to make every scene extra funny. I also enjoy how in Deadpool he breaks the 4thwall as if he is talking to the audience. Doing this is strange, but this is why Deadpool is so different than any Marvel character. He also calls out many actors and X-men characters for comical jabs. Besides the bloody, foul mouth, and grotesque fight scenes (which I know is a part of Deadpool’s vibe) I found it not as intense as the first film which was surprising. I felt a more mellow feel as Deadpool went through some emotional events.
The relationship between Russell, a mutant teen, and Deadpool was the main story that I felt wasn’t fleshed out completely. They just scratched the surface of what could have been a more drawn out character development. I know that Deadpool is a more comedic film, and it met that standard. On the other hand, the emotions they were trying to pull out during the father and son relationship wasn’t quite doing it for me.
The secondary characters were barely involved as well. This resulted in rushed scenes and little to no speaking roles for some characters. Cable was another character who I wished to know more about. He seemed more of a mystery character, and throughout I was unsure how I felt about him even at the end. I know many of these characters are from the comics, but I wished they’d explain more than just assume the audience might know who they are.
The pace of the film was doing well until about half way through when the movie began to feel like it wasn’t edited completely and had to be filled with many awkward scenes that were really just unnecessary. Funny but not needed.
The ending credits were pretty great as they fixed a few past problems for Deadpool. Overall, the film was good, and I rate it 5.5/10 due to the lack of drive for the story and the unnecessary filler scenes. Deadpool 2 itself is comedy worth viewing.
Keep it real,
