Conclusion – Personal thoughts and recommendations
This film seems, just from my perspective of course, to be getting many mixed reviews. I personally I thought the first was better. This doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it, I personally found it quite funny. That being said, I was disappointed slightly with Russell’s characterisation as I know from other movies that Julian Dennison has a very funny persona but other than that I did really enjoy this film.
I would recommend this film to any Marvel film or Ryan Reynolds fans and anyone who was seen the first film as it does seem to build onto the plot (but seeing it without the background knowledge is still reasonable and understandable).
To conclude, a good thing to keep in mind is that this movie does have some extremely inappropriate scenes and language so please be advised of the rating of this film.
If you choose to see it, enjoy! And comment your opinion on the film in the comments or on my in-depth review of the film (warning: review contains spoilers from the film).
