WHAT'S IT ABOUT

Deadpool is back to subvert the superhero genre. Again. After the success of Deadpool 2 he’s returned with a PG re-edit (of the original M) for a second bite of the cherry. It’s a transparent money-making exercise, but everything about Deadpool is transparent so… is it art?

What did we think

    Cleaning up Deadpool 2 for a friendlier rating has seen the movie become streamlined in an incredibly pleasing way. Gone are a lot of unnecessary devices and scenes and in their place are some B roll jokes and new lines that didn’t make the original, a cutscene (which should have stayed cut) and a hilarious subplot involving Deadpool and Fred Savage which will leave Princess Bride fans roaring with delight. Enough changes to make a rewatch feel fresh without changing the essence of the film. Wonderful. 4/5

  2. Dan Beeston December 13, 2018

    (note: Dan had NOT seen Deadpool 2 prior to this preview screening) Deadpool’s biggest selling point was its M rating. So much of its charm is derived from shock comedy and vulgarities. What could possibly be the result when you replace all of those with meta-jokes and pointed commentary? It’s perfect. God help me it’s the funniest film I’ve seen in years.
