Deadpool 2: An all-out bonkers affair!
Marvel flicks fare spectacularly at the Box Office worldwide.
They have a huge fan following, but what is so special and irresistible about them that excites people the most? Star Wars, Harry Potter and Spider-Man are some of the most sought-after and lucrative film franchises that inevitably set cash registers ringing, let alone pave the way for future installments.
Marvel Productions’ newest venture Deadpool 2, based on the fictional comics superhero tickled my fancy, and I headed to my nearest cinema showcasing one of the most talked about movies of 2018.
Deadpool 2 continues its smooth run at the UK theatres. Despite the film receiving generally favourable reviews from critics, my gut instinct was it may not live up to my expectations as somehow Deadpool reminded me of Kick-Ass, which contained crappy jokes and shoddily executed fighting sequences. I am a film buff, nonetheless, scroll through reviews pre-cinema visit.

I ended up spending £29.77 — £13.99 on a Student Ticket and £15.78 on food that consisted of a large salted popcorn combo, and a chocolate milkshake. But, was it worth it? Hell no!
My hunch proved to be right. Deadpool 2 turned out to be precisely the kind of cinema experience I had dreaded. It was to put it simply, bonkers. The storyline sucked big time, and so did the comedy which was crude as can be.
Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool was as annoying as I had imagined. He made my stomach churn with disgust whenever he took off his mask and revealed what lay underneath. Ugh! With his singed countenance and over-the-top gruesome voice manipulation, Reynolds looked far from your usual superhero guy who is enchanting to the core. What’s more, even the ludicrous gory scenes and lackluster action sequences involving taxi driver Dopinder, Russell Collins/Firefist et al, failed to arouse interest.
Deadpool 2 absolutely ruined my day. Tastes differ, albeit films with a lot of hype surrounding them do not necessarily satisfy the needs of an average cinema-goer. They are flimsy and lack substance. In other words, they can be like grapefruit. You either love it or hate it. Go figure!
