Deadpool 2 (1/1 Hats)


Kelvin Says Hats Off:

Just saw “Deadpool 2” – Postmodern Family. Conclusion: 8/10. While it is certainly rendered in the comedic spirit of the first movie, “Deadpool 2” balances its irreverence with a surprising level of emotion and even maturity. Don’t get me wrong, it is every bit as crass and crude as you’d expect it to be, and its gags hit pretty hard. It even humorously claims to be a “family movie” after a rather violent opening. As we come to see, the movie does stay sober long enough to hit on its emotional notes. Like the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies, “Deadpool 2” searches for and develops a sense of family among the characters. The payoff for this in the end is both affecting and satisfying. Of course, the movie is primarily a comedy riffing on the ever-bloating superhero genre. The gags and self-reference are firing on all cylinders and Ryan Reynolds was born with the charisma for this role. His delivery is masterful and completely endearing, as much as someone like Deadpool can be anyway. Boosting things even more is his teammate Domino, played by Zazie Beetz. Her given superpower, luck, is paid off hilariously and she really steals the second act of the movie. The first movie was a refreshing change of pace for a genre that can be fairly one-note. “Deadpool 2” is able to balance its own franchising while still holding on to that freshness. #TheCableGuy #GrilledABear #BoulevardOfTokenDreams #QuaintPeter #DontGiveALuck #RussellContraction
