Deadpool is back! In the sequel, we find Wade Wilson fighting bad guys but unexpectedly he tries to save a young mutant who Cable, who is from the future, comes back in time to kill. Deadpool must assemble a team called the X-Force to help save this boy and to stop Cable from killing him.
The first Deadpool was groundbreaking because a comic book film never had an meta inappropriate comedic tone to it before. Deadpool 2 does bring the same tone but for me it didn’t work like it did the first time. As with all sequels, the film tries to up the stakes, add more characters, and blows up their budget and like I said before it didn’t always work. David Leitch is the director of Deadpool 2 (he did not direct the first Deadpool) and he is most known for the well choreographed action sequences in films – he directed John Wick and Atomic Blonde – so Deadpool 2 has many action sequences, and while they aren’t as flashy as they are in his other films, they took me out of the movie a bit because Deadpool isn’t about action, it’s about the humor.
