Deadpool 2 promised us more thrills, more action, more laughs, and some over-the-top fight sequences. I'm happy to say it kept its promise and provided some smart and surprisingly emotional entertainment. With surprise cameos and a surprise villain, the film is a great sequel, but does it live up to the first?

Deadpool 2 follows Wade Wilson aka Deadpool as he tries to balance his superhero life and his love life. After tragedy strikes, we get a Bond-esque opening with a song performed by none other than Celine Dion. We're then launched into the main story. Deadpool teams up with Colossus and Negasonic in order to help a kid with some fiery mutant abilities. Things go sideways when time-traveler Cable shows up. Cable has come from a future where his family, along with other families, have been killed by a dangerous mutant named Firefist. Cable is convinced that the kid Deadpool was trying to help is in fact that mutant in the future and has come to the past to kill him before he becomes a killer. Deadpool organizes the X-Force in order to stop Cable and hopefully give the kid a reason to change.

So, obviously, a lot happens in the film. It has a two-hour runtime and yet it still fits more story into it than any other X-Men film. There's actually some emotional moments as well, which was a breath of fresh air.

DP2 relied heavily on shock value, which I believe actually did hurt the film in some cases. While shock value can be a good thing, I felt that the film wasted time on a huge setup just to have the shock value moment undo it all. While the cameos were cool, it just wasn't worth it.

Aside from that, the film soared. Josh Brolin was the perfect casting choice for Cable, and Ryan Reynolds once again proves that no one else could be Deadpool. Zazie Beetz impressed me thoroughly as Domino and I hope we get to see more of her in the future.Unless the Fox/Disney merger ends the series, we probably will see more of Domino and Cable considering how the film ends. Whoops, was that a spoiler? Uh, spoiler alert.

In conclusion, if you loved the first Deadpool then you will most certainly love Deadpool 2. I thoroughly enjoyed the film and I look forward to seeing more from the entire cast. I give the film a 3.5 out of 4.
