Finally, a superhero movie that lives up to the hype.
When looking back on the vast amount of Superhero movies that have been released in the last few years, I can't remember many that really were quite good. Don't get me started on Justice League or the mind-numbingly boring Avengers series.
The last REAL good superhero flick would have to be Deadpool, and that was a damn Comedy! So, when the trailer for Venom was released, even after viewing it, I had low expectations – and that was a good thing because this Tom Hardy driven feature is very, very entertaining.
This review has a strong language warning, just like the film.
Let’s start this by saying right off the bat, Deadpool 2is the summer blockbuster of the motherfucking year. You might have heard it’s better than the original? It’s true. Believe it or not, this sequel has it all: humour, touching moments, a cool as fuck soundtrack, great fight scenes and some actually half decent CGI. I’m going to try and not drop any spoilers below, but ye been warned!
Hugh Jackman sends his beloved character of 17 years off with a bang.
Let’s just get the major thing out of the way first, Logan is awesomesauce. That feels better, but yes, it’s true, unlike the Suicide Squad movie of last year that had an amazing trailer but then failed epically, Logan has both, the teasers hooked you without giving anything major away and the final product live up to the previews promises and then some.
Finally a seriously awesome Lego movie.
Since The Lego Movie was (surprisingly) a huge hit, it wasn’t a shock when they decided to do another one. Thank fuck for the second instalment, they choose to go with a story centred on the only good character that graced the sleazefest of the first movie: Batman.
A stubborn, egotistic, genius with a high end sports car.
