Name: Deadpool 2

Director: One of the guys who killed the dog of John Wick. JK! David Leitch

Cast: The guy who obviously didn't want to share screen space. JK, again! Ryan Reynolds. Also Josh Brolin (aka Thanos), Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, Karan Soni, Morena Baccarin, and why-do-you-wanna-know-every name?

You will like this if you liked: Err...Deadpool, you dumb-dumb.

It's bang-bang time, guys! The Merc with an ugly face (what? he thinks that, too) and loads of wisecracks coming out of his mouth, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) is back, baby.

Our 'Red' has gone international in this film and so have his R-rated jokes. If you thought the teasers and the trailers were all the film is about, then you don't know DP at all. There's so much more in store.

Backed with a great script, loads of double entendres, crass remarks, digs at Marvel and DC alike, and language that Captain America will highly disapprove of, this superhero/family film is going to take you for a spin.

Basically, DP has figured that family is not an F-word, puts his heart in the right place and becomes an X-Men trainee. Oh wait, we were going to say becomes the superhero who protects the mutant kid (we all have seen the trailer) Russell (Julian Dennison) from a guy, with a Winter Soldier arm, named Cable (Josh Brolin). We were almost going to give you a spoiler there, but we just remembered Deadpool has demanded our sisters....errr...silence.

The flick's hilarity is on point and we can say better than the the first one, but we won't (We can almost hear DP saying: It's so dark. Are you sure you are not from the DC Universe?). The reason for saying so is that we watched the censored, cut version, suitable for Indian audiences (thank you, Censor Board 😒). All we wanted was a crass-f-bomb-dropping version of Wade Wilson unleashed on us but what did we get? Rehashed dialogues. Not all, though.

Anyhoo, we still loved every bit of it. The wisecracks were less in comparison to the first film, but the super-funny, dark, racist jokes on racism, cool nicknames, cute moments, et al made up for it. Deadpool had us from scene one itself.

Are you thinking why ain't we talking about the “tough, morally flexible and young enough to carry their own franchise for 10-12 years” X-Force that DP forms? Umm, you might wanna see the film for that. Cuz, anything we say about it is going to lead to us yapping away and giving out a spoiler. Hint: Watch out for Vanisher.

Acting-wise, too, the film is a winner. We abso-effin-lutely loved Ryan as DP and as Ryan himself (Oops. Spoiler!). We also loved Thanos's work. Oh, we mean Cable's. Josh, you confuse us.

But we were mighty impressed by Zazie Beetz aka Domino – we are rooting for a spinoff, RN. Karan Soni's Dopinder has always been dope and added the much-loved desi tadka. His thirst for, errm...whatever – watch the film – will leave you thirsty.

We also love Sabrina, the teenage witch aka Negasonic Teenage Warhead's (Brianna Hildebrand) and Yukio's (Shioli Kutsuna) love angle. #Aww. Is this the right time to say how Colossus (Stefan Kapičić) reminded us of Cap Am, way too much? There we said it.

We think this Marvel Entertainment film will take on Avengers: Infinity War at the box office head on. Win-win for Thanos-Cable-Josh Brolin. Watch out for 'em numbers.

Special mention of the post-credit scenes, which will basically make you laugh your guts out. He's on a mission of cleaning up the timelines. And we are randomly cracking up even thinking about them.

Oh, and Deadpool dies in this film.




Kidding. No, he doesn't.




Or does he? There's only one way to find that out.

Till the time we are treated to more of this amazeb**ls superhero's films, we will kiss him like we miss him. 💋❤
