I’m glad I saw Deadpool 2; I ended up seeing it in a double feature with the first film so I could see them back to back as an easier comparison. While it tries to outdo the first film in nearly every way, the original is still superior. Sequels often try to be “bigger and better” than the original, but I can say, in this case, Deadpool 2 comes very close to the quality and charm of the original. [Grade: A]
