, enjoyed it more than the 1st film (in which i loved as well) because it felt much more like the character I loved in the comics. Its even more violent, raunchy, profane, brutal, & unrestrained than the 1st film. Cinematicaly, the film & character is the 1st film but much more amplified. The #MercWithAMouth
did here what he's known to do: doesn't give a sh*t, breaks the 4th wall, mentions plenty of pop culture references, is annoying to many, trolls without care, gets brutalized but keeps going, kills without much remorse. #RyanReynolds
is undeniably great in the role, playing the character pitch perfect, reminiscent of the comics. He continues to play Deadpool like he was destined to become it, getting more comfortable in the role & providing more layers in his character.
is insane, unpredictable, profane, brutal, meta heavy -- essentially good #RRated
fun...except for a general wide audience (which as a Deadpool comics reader, i always wanted a DP movie reach to have, but I never thought if it can be anymore than a purely adult crowd). Visually impressive, consistently entertaining, with plenty of surprises that'll delight the crowd. Its a sweet profane release from all the nobleness of the superhero genre since the last DP movie came out.
jokes at anything whether its the #XMen
, Josh Brolin's resume (the #Thanos
reference was fantastic and quite timely...although im a bit disappointed i didn't hear any #JonahHex
jokes), Reynold's career, or even the movie's potential flaws itself as it is about to happen. I dug the #DC
jokes, felt like it was in good fun, very much within the character of deadpool, similar to the comics; unlike what some mcu folks may interpret, didn't see any vitriol in them with the exception of one which Ryan Reynolds himself has poked fun of during media interviews. A few jokes don't quite hit, and some jokes definitely went over the audience's head. I doubt that many of the general audience saw the guy pierce Australian western The Proposition, or recognised the Logan theme playing over a crucial part during the film's final act -- but i did and i loved it.
