Auburn Wanderer’s review published on Letterboxd:
Viewed in IMAX
Rich in story, and sharp in action, Deadpool 2 delivers emotional highs that are genuinely surprising. While I do really enjoy the first film, the change of director with David Leitch offers a fresh new take on the character that is more accurate to the complexities of the Merc with a Mouth than the original. This is just overall a better film than the first. It’s much more engaging, and has a much stronger character arc for Wade where there are ballsy consequences. Deadpool 2 is more sophisticated film in the aspect that it’s more about the overall universe of X-Men, and not just focusing on what crazy shit can happen to one character mainly. And, that works much better when viewing the film as a piece of Superhero fun. At the end of the day, Deadpool 2 isn’t going to be the most essential viewing of the year, but it’s one that is highly recommended due to its bold confidence in style, and high-octane thrills with a touch of comedy gold.
