Living up to its promise of giving zero Fs, this revised version of Deadpool 2 takes pains to avoid a single F-bomb. But since it is still an M-rated release – PG-13 in the US – there are a good amount of “s---s” and violent scenes.
It may be appropriate for a slightly younger audience, but it’s not completely neutered. In fact, there are even more laughs thanks to Once Upon a Deadpool’s The Princess Bride–style framing device, with a captive Fred Savage forced to listen to the superhero tale, as told by Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) himself. It's essentially the same story, just given a new teen-friendly presentation.
The banter between Savage and Deadpool makes up the bulk of the 20 minutes of scenes that were not part of the cinematic release of Deadpool 2. And be sure to stay to the very end, with some brand new mid- and post-credits scenes as well. Perfect for anyone who didn't see the original version or who saw it so long ago that they can't remember all the details. 4 stars
