I’m kind of glad I didn’t actually re-watch Deadpool before going to see this film (I had written that review a few years back, and after a few edits it seemed like a timely point to restore it), like I did the various Marvel movies before Infinity War and the Star Wars saga before The Last Jedi, because I feel it would probably have lessened the experience.

Let me just level with you before we get into this properly; working at a cinema, I dreaded the release of Deadpool 2 because it would no doubt encourage a bunch of underage kids to try and sneak in – a bunch of underage kids who, being underage, don’t have I.D., which, let me tell you, is really ruddy annoying. And when people feel entitled to see a film (of all things, seriously!) which they can’t due to age restrictions, it can bring forth the ways in which certain members of humanity are either extremely annoying, or in short, dirtbags. This may or may not have had an affect on my experience, as I feel I didn’t quite enjoy the film as much as fellow audience members. But I digress.

Deadpool 2 sees the return of, you guessed it, Deadpool, who has broadened his scope and become somewhat of an international hero. But after certain circumstances lead him into a complicated relationship with a young mutant called Firefist, Deadpool realises he can’t save the world alone, and decides to form a ‘super-duper-fucking-group’ (that line doesn’t make it to the actual movie, unfortunately) to protect Firefist from the time-travelling killer known as Cable.

If you’d scanned the internet following the release of Deadpool, you’d have been faced with countless articles about how it changed the comic-book film industry by successfully releasing a R-Rated film which toys with continuity as much as it wants whilst still adhering to the much coveted cinematic universes that everyone is chasing after.

Whilst this is untrue, as it ignores the earlier releases of films like Kick-Ass and Super, it tells you one thing you should know; Deadpool is a hugely popular and very enjoyable movie.

Still ranking in the top ten of a lot of comic-movie ranking lists a whole two years later, Deadpool tells the story of Wade Wilson; a former soldier who is confronted by the fact he has terminal cancer. Approached by a shady government type, Wilson undergoes a procedure that awakens his mutant gene; granting him a healing factor to rival Wolverine’s and a face that, in his own words, is completely “unfuckable”. But when his ‘creator’, the sinister typical British villain, Ajax, kidnaps his girlfriend, Wilson must don a superhero suit, and slice his way through Ajax’s grunts so that he can get revenge.
