Recently released, “Deadpool 2” is exactly what you would expect from a Deadpool movie. Like the first, it’s a entertaining, crude, and vulgar movie. It’s filled with with jokes that mirror the comedy from the original Deadpool, making it just as likeable as the first. Deadpool 2 was especially successful because of the refreshing mix of the crude comedy that characterizes the Deadpool series, and the positive messages that make up the truly good parts of the movie.

Deadpool 2 makes you laugh in the way the original does, but it also speaks towards bigger things than the obscene comedy that Deadpool films do so well. It makes you think about death, friendships and most importantly, family.

Ryan Reynolds and the supporting cast do what Deadpool does best, by mixing comedy and seriousness, invigorating the superhero movie stereotype. Most of the time when a superhero mixes comedy and a serious narrative, it feels cheesy and played out. But because of the breaking of the fourth wall the movie highlights, it feels like you’re along for the ride.

“Deadpool 2” is a movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously in a world of movies that generally address serious topics. Because of its light hearted, crass, and suggestive nature, the movies heavier themes don’t weigh the movie down, but in fact make you think deeper than the original comedy “Deadpool”.

I would recommend “Deadpool 2” to anyone who enjoyed the first. Anyone looking for a funny superhero movie or anyone who enjoys crude comedy, will enjoy the traits “Deadpool 2” specializes in. “Deadpool 2” is a entertaining, exciting, funny superhero movie that has a real, important, and relevant message of the importance of family, acceptance and the idea that we can make a difference in others livesall while making you laugh throughout the entire movie.

“Deadpool 2” is rated R and is directed by Simon Kinberg, Ryan Reynolds and Lauren Shuler Donner.
