Rinzy Reviews ‘Deadpool 2’ (2018)

Release Date: May 18, 2018

Budget/ Box-Office: $100M/ $733.1M

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, etc.

Rinzy’s Rating: 4/5


Breaking the fourth wall and an R-rating, which allowed the use of strong languages, endeared the first Deadpool movie to the hearts of fans around the world. Expectations were high for this sequel, and boy did it deliver! 

Shocker alert! Vanessa (Baccarin) dies early into the movie. At first, I thought it was a joke of some sort, an elaborate prank on viewers. I mean, how does Vanessa die almost as soon as the movie starts, especially after being an integral part of the first movie? Well, that’s what we get… A dead Vanessa. But that doesn’t mean talented actress Morena Baccarin sits out the entire movie, she’s just not as important as would’ve been expected. I’d have loved to see more of her pretty face and a possible repeat of the marathon sex scenes with Wade; good thing she was saved at the end of the movie with Cable’s time-travelling device. 

Morena Baccarin as Vanessa

A dead Vanessa translates to an angry Deadpool a.k.a. Wade Wilson (see what I did there? 😂). He tries everything from revenge murder spree to revenge suicide to cope with his loss, but nothing worked. The perks of being an immortal. He finds new purpose joining the X-Men, but it’s short-lived and he ends up in prison, where all the real fun begins.

I liked the fact that we were introduced to a new side of Deadpool (Reynolds), one that manages to humanize a character that’s easily seen as a caricature, and still maintain all the silliness that made the first movie beautiful. 

Josh Brolin as Cable

At best, I could describe the character Cable (Brolin) as decent. Don’t get me wrong, he had a great backstory… Wife and child died at the hands of a mutant madman. So, he goes back in time to enact revenge before the madman is truly formed. Works well on paper, but wasn’t convincingly executed, if you ask me. The way his scenes were layered to add suspense just didn’t work for me… It got me a bit confused in places I shouldn’t have been. I did like every action scene he appeared in though, especially that one on the highway where Juggernaut (Reynolds) was released. 

Juggernaut vs. Deadpool

Talking about Juggernaut. This is obviously the better of his two live-action appearances (remember X-Men: Last Stand). Even though the character is portrayed as a mindlessly loyal mutant in this movie, his lines are less cheesy and he makes up for his lapses by smashing things way better than his predecessor ever could. His BIG CGI fight with Colossus is one to be remembered for a while.

A movie’s only as good as the villain he/she has to face, but does ‘Deadpool 2’ pass on this department? There isn’t a straight answer to this question as there isn’t an actual big bad for Deadpool to battle and surmount, like in the first movie. Instead, he’s faced with the opportunity to rewrite destiny, convince a possible-villain to do good, and in so doing shows we (humans) are products of our choices… The future isn’t set in stone, as most say. Does this move work? Yes, it does.

I loved Domino (Beetz)!!! Who would’ve thought a character with luck as a superpower could be so cool? We’ve got Zazie Beetz to thank for this gift we hope will continue giving in this universe.

I enjoyed all the DC and Marvel references, and those fourth wall breaking scenes, especially those in the post credit scenes… Deadpool’s really silly, I can’t seem to get enough. 😂.

Have you seen ‘Deadpool 2’ yet? Did you like it? What’s your best moment in the film?

PS: To whom it may concern, a third Deadpool movie is in the works and might just be produced by Disney this time.

Which Is Your Best Xmen Line-up?

In the year 2000, Xmen was released and it relaunched the way way we see Superhero movies even till this day. After the third installment in 2006, 20th Century Fox felt unimpressed with the reception of their latest movie an opted for a new direction. The planned Xmen: Origin stories failed on arrival, and this prompted the need for a reboot – a soft reboot – of some sort. This was the birth story of the Xmen: First Class movie.

The question is – Which do you prefer, the original line up, or the younger versions of their characters?

Characters like Wolverine, who’s been the leading man of the franchise up till Logan’s release earlier this month have been consistent over all movies in the franchise, hence, can not be stated as a reason for selection.

The Xmen will be back to the cinematic world in an installment tagged Xmen: Supernova.
After a decent box-office performance, lower than expectations after the unprecedented success of Xmen: Days of Future Past, the future of the Xmen was under a lot of speculations and scrutiny; now that future has been confirmed to still be one that 20th Century Fox (the studio behind the Xmen movies) still believes in. Why won’t they, when the Xmen franchise is one of their most commercially successful brands?

Xmen: Supernova is believed to be a remake of 2006’s Xmen: Last Stand, that horribly treated the Dark Phoenix story-line . With this remake  (if successful) Fox hopes to right the wrongs of more than a decade ago.

Xmen: Supernova is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2018. Casting news hasn’t been confirmed, other than Sophie Turner as Jean Grey every other person is a potential cast.Another thing is that, this movie will be situated in deep space. Time will tell if Fox will get it right this time because I have to admit, Xmen: Apocalypse was a let down especially with the titular bad guy.


RR will keep you updated.
