It's clearly a stab at recreating grittier, more emotionally fraught origin story moments that Deadpool 1 certainly didn't shy away from, but this time it feels like the movie is trying to punch way, way above its weight class.
A typical example of a sequel not living up to what came before, Deadpool's R-Rated antics already feel old and if the character is the first casualty of the Fox/Disney merger, it probably won't be the end of the world.
His jibber-jabber gets tiresome after a while, however, and irreverent, subversive and shocking humour is funny only upto a point. After which, the grand action scenes aside, it feels like a pattern: Offend. Kill. Make an inside Marvel joke. Repeat.
