The ul­ti­mate anti-hero is back with a bang

The Star Late Edition - - FILM -

Watch­ing is like hav­ing Dead­pool sit­ting next to you with a bucket of pop­corn, trash­ing the film and all of pop cul­ture. se­quence, she proves to be the sole sur­vivor of an air­borne as­sault by a team of hap­less mu­tants, in­clud­ing char­ac­ters played by Terry Crews, Bill Skars­gard, Lewis Tan and one un­cred­ited celebrity, mak­ing a de­light­ful, if grue­some, cameo.

Noth­ing is sa­cred here, ex­cept com­edy. At the same time that Dead­pool 2 mocks every­thing from su­per­hero ac­tion to au­di­tion mon­tages, it in­oc­u­lates it­self against any crit­i­cism that might come its way. That’s Dead­pool 2’ s real – and real sub­ver­sive – su­per­power: the abil­ity to laugh at it­self.
