Treat this as a before and after. Here are the reasons why I’m worried. Will follow it up with answers to the questions after I see it
Expectations are high. The first was an absolute little gem. It broke records, it was weird, it was rude, it shocked, it gave us hope for the X-Men films in the future. Can it match it or come close?
Here are the reservations
Can we get bored of Ryan Reynolds humour? Probably – He wasn’t too bad
The Xforce crew look pretty shitty. Their costumes look cringe worthy. I’m actually really scared to see these guys. One of the best things about the first was the odd small selection of Xmen. Now they are introducing Cable and Domino and the whole x-force team? Isn’t this just supposed to be Deadpool 2 not an xmen avengers film? Worried. Also worried about Domino, she looks pretty budget – well that reservation got thrown out the window very quickly. Deadpool 2 wins that round.
Can it match the expectation? The first was so good. How can they follow up well? – They did as well as they could have.
Josh Brolin as Cable actually looks pretty bad as cable in the trailers. You can’t fuck with Cable, if he’s done badly the movie is a flop – he is ok. He’s not as well cast as he could have been and could have done with more awkward Cable and Deadpool exchanges like the comics. He was ok.
The soundtrack in the trailers is a bit shitty. Usually that’s a sign that they are hiding something. Nothing bad here, the trailer soundtrack was a lot worse than the proper soundtrack, not sure how this happened.
I really hope it’s not shitty. The first one was good so it has a lot to live up to. Checking it out in the next couple so will know if it’s fcked real soon. Come back for the follow up
