So was this as good as the first Deadpool?
It depends on who you ask. My wife couldn't make it past the first scenes of Deadpool 1 with the ascine humor making fun of itself. But this is a superhero movie... its all made up folks! So I loved the first movie and had lower expectations for the 2nd time. In the past, sequels were usually worse and killed off after the third installment. See Smokey and the Bandit 3 vs. the first film in the franchise if you want to know why. Anyway, all that said, this may be even better than Deadpool 1; Marvel really knocks it out of the park. The humor is even more over the top with ridiculous scenes, and cynicism of Deadpool and movie making. I really enjoyed it thoroughly and thought some of the jokes were just so well played.
How did you like the villain Cable?
What about Deadpool's true love Vanessa?
Were there other crucial characters?
Would you change anything in the film?
I think just the overly long love scenes with Vanessa. I think they could have shown more depth to her character maybe with better lines/scenes, but it is what it is. In this case, I think they underplayed her as an actress in kind of a typical damsel in distress role vs. a more meatier character like Furiousa in Mad Max: Fury Road. It was a bit of a shame since she's fairly in depth in Deadpool 1.
Do you have any art related to the film?
I would say kind of. I have done a bit of superhero art, but I like the energy in the work below. It has the fast pace action of Deadpool, bold crazy yellow, which rings true to wild stunts in Deadpool and the piercing shards of light that resemble all the times Deadpool is shot at over the film. I name this the "Accidental Atomic Aloha" from the dreadly false atomic alarm that was sounded off in Hawaii under the leading up to the Korean summit between Trump and Kim regime. My title is very cynical like Deadpool and dealing with a very serious topic, while Deadpool is more a personal drama story of family in a way.
