Fifth about The Seventh

Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2: while the story of David Leitch’s super-hero comedy is decent (for the genre; it’s still preposterous and has an unconvincing chain of events, but it surprisingly allows for some emotional investment), but the self-referential and profane attempt of humour is unsuccessful (comedy, like emotion, is in the eye of the beholder, of course) and exhaustive. That’s in the original material, but some devices work better in some media than others. The tiresome main character is well-defended, for what it is, by Ryan Reynolds; Josh Brolin is commanding as the brooding villain; Zazie Beetz is a fine addition to the group. The action is chaotic and unremarkable, with a touch of violence to gratuitously justify its rating. Music selection is varied and interesting. Regardless, as a sequel this is much like the original film.
