    Deadpool 2: A Non Spoiler review


    The sun'll come out Tomorrow, Bet your bottom dollar
    That tomorrow There'll be sun
    Just thinkin' about Tomorrow
    Clears away the cobwebs,
    And the sorrow 'Til there's none

    Tomorrow, tomorrow I love ya tomorrow
    You're always A day Away


    A reminder: In a spoiler review means I do not tell you more about the movie than you can see in the coming attractions. That is, you know that this is a super-hero movie, connected to the X-Men, the second in a series and the first movie was very successful.

    Briefly, if you liked the first movie you will like this. If you didn’t don’t bother. This movie does not rehash the first, the characters are all introduced and they need not go back and reintroduce them. If you haven’t seen the first, it may take a while tom get up to speed. I enjoyed the movie, although it is still too violent for me to give it an overwhelming review.

    I saw the two hour movie in Imax and the picture was large and perfect. It had much better use of surround sound than many other movies. The Deadpool movies are “lower” cost productions and do not have the elaborate cast of the other X-Men or Marvel movies.

    It is hard to describe without giving anything away, but here goes: This is really two movies shown at once. The first is a very serious movie about tragedy and loss, revenge, redemption and putting right what once went wrong.

    The second movie, which is going on at the same time, is an irreverent look at super-hero movies and popular culture. It is a satire of these movies and there is no fourth wall, the participants are often talking and reacting to the knowing audience. It is very funny, which is the reason to see this movie.

    The movie makes no sense and everything is outrageously impossible, but very funny. The more you know about these movies and the comics the funnier it is. I gave up reading comics during the Carter admiration so I did not know many of the main characters.

    Stay through the end credits, there are many things to see and to hear!

    Finally, the movie takes full advantage of older songs and music to set the mood aand plot and that adds to the satire. And some music is actually incorporated into the plot in a very skillful way. I caught it and my friends didn’t!!!!





    We're talking away
    I don't know what
    I'm to say I'll say it anyway
    Today's another day to find you
    Shying away
    I'll be coming for your love, okay?

    Take on me, (take on me)
    Take me on, (take on me)
    I'll be gone
    In a day or two

    So needless to say
    I'm odds and ends
    I'll be stumbling away
    Slowly learning that life is OK
    Say after me
    It's no better to be safe than sorry

    Take on me, (take on me)
    Take me on, (take on me)
    I'll be gone
    In a day or two

    Oh the things that you say
    Is it live or
    Just to…

    I didn't like the first one much, and while this was a lot better, it still wasn't great. Josh Brolin was great as always, and Domino was a cool character.

    I also agree with Barry about the 2-in-1 movie feel. One of those movies was about 3/4 of the film (the crazy comic action and antics of Deadpool) while the other was centered around human relationships. Incredibly sharp tonal shifts throughout, and oddly most of it worked. Even if I felt annoyed that such an adolescent movie was actually also touching, somehow.

    For part 3 they need to reinvent though, and give us an actual plot. Plus, I'm already burned out on the character. More Domino and Cable please.

    I liked it and found it entertaining. A bit over-the-top, but that was expected.

    Really can't wait to see this. Loved the first one, and I'm also a fan of Ryan's comedy stuff (yeah I know it's pretty bad/cheesy/childish/whatever but I like it). It's like Deadpool was created just for him or something. I mean if you told me Deadpool was real and it was Ryan, I would 100% not be surprised lol.
