Prepare your chimichanga, put on some R-Rated music, and get ready for another round of your favorite anti-superhero. It’s not Shakespeare, but Deadpool indeed belongs in history books for being one of the most entertaining heroes in this huge Marvel universe. Ryan Reynolds has a blast, once again, playing Wade Wilson, the cancer patient turned medical experiment turned Deadpool, who still can’t get over the fact that he starred in a shitty movie called “Green Lantern” back in 2011. So he goes on a happy mission to kill every writer who worked on that film and put an end to the DC universe. I’m kidding, of course, but you get the vibes of “Deadpool 2”, where nothing truly makes sense, but you still can’t get your eyes off the screen. From the opening sequence to the closing credits, Reynolds is a live wire, delivering one witty line after the other and kicking ass like you’ve never seen him before. After a tragic incident early on, you’d think he would embark on a journey of self-discovery and peace. But nop, he still can’t shut the fuck up. I’d love to spoil every hilarious scene in this truly hilarious movie, but that would be against Deadpool protocol. But get this: prepare to laugh like never before. Wilson says early on that this film is family-friendly. Well, if you disregard blood, violence and foul language, there is indeed a kid at the center of the story, one that our hero vows to protect from the evil Cable (Josh Brolin, fresh out of “Infinity War”), who also happens to be from the future. Lost? Confused? Doesn’t matter. You’ll go for the ride and follow these characters anywhere. That’s the charm of Deadpool, and the fuel that propels this sequel, which leaves you wanting more. Lucky for us, there will be more. Reynolds may have found the role of his career, and we’re sitting right here enjoying every moment of it. You’ll leave “Deadpool 2” with a silly smile on your face.
