Well, the idea of cutting an R-rated superhero movie into a PG-13 may seem contrived and surreal, but as Deadpool has proven time and time again, nothing is quite impossible when it comes to the motor-mouthed Marvel anti-hero. 

Whether this movie is really suited for teenagers and young audiences, it still pushes the boundaries of what really constitutes to a PG-13 rating. While the F-bombs are omitted, along with reduced violence and sex, the essence of what Deadpool is - a ‘superhero’ - remains, but the shticks of what makes Deadpool tick, however, is now coming up short. 

(Read our review of the uncut Deadpool 2 here!)

To make up for the loss in the footage, Ryan Reynolds ropes in Fred Savage to re-create his part from the 1987 classic ‘The Princess Bride’, as the kid stuck in bed whose grandfather reads him bedtime stories. Here’s the catch: Fred Savage is all grown up and he is duct-taped to the bed with Deadpool doing the retelling of the events that happened in Deadpool 2. To ensure the vulgarities are censored, the superhero himself has a ‘bleep button’ that bleeps out any words or sentences that could affect the ‘family-friendly’ theme… and that’s a pretty clever tactic used.

For those who have not caught the original or younger moviegoers watching it for the first time, it serves as a decent standalone film that delivers the action, humour and narrative that one expects from a superhero genre. There are darker elements of the action scenes but it’s enough to enjoy and appreciate the raunchy humour Deadpool movies has always been. You can still see that Reynolds is having fun overdubbing and bleeping his lines for a tone-down gag without losing the sarcasm.

Perhaps one of the more fun and new elements in the movie is the interaction between Savage and Deadpool who banter and argue with each other, hurling insults and mic-drop punchlines in between. (insert Marvel-Fox-Disney jokes here). 

However, the action sequences felt a little stretched. In the final showdown, there were just too many things happening at the same time, with the X-Force members joining forces (pun not intended). Even with the initial recruitment of his ideal X-Force teammates who were killed in various ridiculous ways during a parachute jump gone wrong, it whole scene feels isolated on its own, and strange in some ways, to string them together as a continuous plot. 

What fans can look out for will be the post-credit sequences. Yes, it’s more than one with new and seen footage. The first one being Savage and Deadpool having a conversation about post-credits scenes in a post-credit scene. And of course, the very final scene is a montage of the late Stan Lee, sharing his past interviews about his legacy and how he started the wave of superheroes we know today.
