      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Once Upon a Deadpool retains enough of the franchise's anarchic spirit to entertain, but doesn't add enough to Deadpool 2 to justify its own existence. Read critic reviews

        I have now officially seen three different versions of Deadpool 2. The theatrical, the "Super Duper" cut, and now this one. As far as I'm concerned, each re-release has been worse than the last. I get the use of the framing device, and it was even pretty funny doing the whole Fred Savage/Princess Bride thing, but Deadpool 2 being cut together this way just felt erratic.

        It's still Deadpool, it's still funny, it's still good enough, but it's not different enough to be worth it. As a novelty, it's notable enough, and the additional footage with Fred Savage is funny. I do like how Savage even comments on some of the criticisms of the movie, like the fridging of Vanessa or Cable's lack of complexity compared to the comics. However I'm not really sure who this movie's supposed to be for. It comments on the original take on Deadpool 2 in some funny ways, but it doesn't have the bite of Deadpool 2 which makes it a charming novelty but ultimately pointless. It could be for families I guess, but then they're going to miss the references to the original version, and then it takes away some of the elements of the original that it doesn't need to. There are some great scenes that get shortened or cut out entirely that didn't need to. Sometimes there's a dramatic moment that's undercut by an insert from Fred Savage, which is funny if you've seen the original, but kind of ruins the moment. This is really a weird idea overall. I mean, it's still Deadpool, there's stuff in it that still works because the original worked, but ultimately this take on it is kind of a failed experiment.
