If you…

  • Don’t like Ryan Reynolds
  • Don’t like a movie that exists entirely without the fourth wall, or even the walls 1-3
  • Don’t like the X-Men not being taken seriously
  • Like an approach that totally understands the absurdity of superheroes, mutants, etc.
  • Don’t like sequels that are better than the original
  • Don’t like the original
  • Don’t like things that lack consequence
  • Hate seeing someone tell you ahead of time which parts will be bad CGI
  • Don’t like the absurdity of Josh Brolin seeing someone mock his step mother relentlessly
  • Don’t like seeing Josh Brolin in more than one new movie every three weeks
  • Don’t to see someone ripped apart from two appendages
  • Don’t want to see that same person blown into even more pieces
  • Don’t want to see a super hero suit held together with duct tape
  • Don’t want to see naked baby legs and something even smaller holding up a shirt
  • Don’t want to play spot the reference
  • Don’t want to play spot the cameo
  • Don’t think there could be another Marvel movie better than the one topping the box office right now that uses the same dumb elements but more sloppily
  • Like the Beatles
  • Don’t like the Stones
  • Don’t want to wonder what that suit must smell like
  • Don’t want to be offended

…then don’t see this movie.

I can’t wait to see it again.

(****1/2 out of *****)
