Deadpool2 is one of the most funniest movies from the Marvel Universe. Almost every other line is a joke. The jokes are funny & keep you smiling throughout. Ryan Reynolds owns the character. His comic timing is excellent. Josh Brolin is superb as Cable. The casting agents have done a good job of choosing the best supporting cast possible. In true Deadpool style comedy, the characters take potshots at other iconic movies & characters. Deadpool makes jokes even in tragic situations. Some rather unknown Marvel characters like Juggernaut too make an appearance. Dopinder – Indian cabbie will strike a chord among Indian audiences. His depiction may seem racist, but we didn’t mind it.
The movie does start off on a not so gripping note. The first 20-25 mins weren’t that good. But as the story progressed we were totally glued to the screen. The movie contains a lot of profanities & adult jokes, which makes it unsuitable for family audiences in India.
The movie is even better than the iconic first installment. Do watch it in a theatre near you with your friends & preferably not family.
Our Rating: (4.5 / 5)
