‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ review: Fantastic buddy comedy gives the MCU new hope

getting ripped to shreds by critics.While retaking its cinematic crown will be a challenge, “Deadpool & Wolverine” is a giant, promising step forward for the franchise.Director Shawn Levy’s laugh-a-second movie is easily the best Marvel has delivered since 2021’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” and provides similarly nostalgic pleasures in its whiplash-inducing number of retro cameos — none of which I’ll spoil, for fear of my own life.Safer to reveal is that since the events of 2018’s “Deadpool 2,” Wade has been wading through his daily routine, lacking heroic purpose.Meta as ever, he also gives us a corporate refresher course. “Disney bought Fox, there was a boring rights issue, blahdeddy blah,” Deadpool says.

‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F’ review: Eddie Murphy returns in pointless sequel
2021’s “Coming 2 America,” the misguided sequel to “Coming To America,” it’s understandable that viewers approach Eddie Murphy’s new “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F” with some trepidation.Unfortunately, they’re right to.Netflix has, once again, gotten its greedy hands on a cherished title, tossed in some celebs and lazily devalued it into an algorithmic afterthought.Everything uniquely special and hilarious about the 1984 fish-out-of-water hit is gone, replaced by commodity streaming mush that looks like every other ho-hum action-comedy right now.Another mediocre nostalgia grab.More and more I ask, though: How nostalgic is it, really, to see our favorite characters return worn out and weary in forgettable films? Who does that make feel good? Not me!Problem No. 1 is that Detroit police officer Axel Foley (Murphy) hasn’t changed enough since 1994’s dismal “Beverly Hills Cop III.”The only substantive difference is that he has an estranged adult daughter named Jane (Taylour Paige), a defense attorney in Beverly Hills, who gets into a dicey situation with a drug cartel.That’s why he leaves Michigan for the luxe California enclave, where director Mark Molloy stages overly wacky chase scenes (a helicopter flying in traffic) and beats tired gags to death.Axel desperately needed some new shtick.
