Deadpool and is at the height of his game!!! I’ll try to be as non-spoiler(y) as possible. In Deadpool 2 coming to theaters THURSDAY, Ryan Reynolds takes the good things from original, plus some good ole’ fashion turned on its head comic book troupes and gives us a film that feels exciting and hilarious.
Zazie Beetz as Domino, stands out among the additions giving us a character that can stand her ground against the worlds filthiest superhero. Morena Baccarin brings the noise once more as Vanessa; Brianna Hildebrand with a great new look kills it as Negasonic Teenage Warhead; and Leslie Uggams is amazing again as Blind Al. Even TJ Miller had his (albeit limited) moments as Weasel. What I absolutely love about Deadpool 2 is that there seems to be comedic chemistry between each and every actor. You can tell time and hard work was spent getting the most out of each scene.
Josh Brolin is to Comic Book Movie Villians as Clint Eastwood was to Western Bad-Asses. The guy gets it, doesn’t take himself too seriously and simply blows the audience away with his charm and grit. Go and see him kick ass as both baddies! You owe it to your comic book loving heart to enjoy this (and I can’t believe I am typing this after DC and Marvel Universes have crapped out so many terrible villains the past half-decade) golden age of villainy.
Director David Leitch brings a grittiness that the talented Tim Miller couldn’t. There is a practicality to the fight scenes that of course comes from John Wick and give Deadpool 2 this feeling of “wow, this dude is insane” I absolutely loved it.
Deadpool 2 is a 4.5 out of 5 on the Adventures of Nerding scales of awesomeness.
