Buy it... if you were tickled by Tyler Bates' somewhat humorous parody score in the context of the film despite its fractured and derivative nature.

Avoid it... if you demand a robust presence of overstatement in your satirical film scores, this one conveying sufficient attitude at times but also interpolating other composers' themes and techniques without much savvy.

Deadpool 2: (Tyler Bates) As most of the Marvel Cinematic Universe careens into depressingly existential emotional territory, the Deadpool franchise embarks upon a similar journey with 2018's Deadpool 2, but it does so with irreverent satire as its sidekick. Self-deprecating humor allows audiences to laugh as major characters are killed without meaning, the storyline even taking aim at other, specific superhero properties and films. The titular X-Men spinoff attempts to reconcile his place in the universe during this sequel, joining other mutants in his haphazard effort to seek revenge, purpose, and relief from boredom as a time-travelling foe challenges him and his friends for his own vendetta. Don't expect a masterpiece of emotional depth here, for this flick is a parody of the highest order, complicating plans the studio is developing to merge Deadpool into the rest of the MCU in the future. With a new director at the helm, Deadpool 2 thrashed its way to critical and box office success, its juvenile and arguably sexist messaging kicking all the right people in the loins for audiences to embrace. The humor and profanity of the script carries over into its soundtrack, much of which, as with the preceding movie, dominated by song placements. The original song, "Ashes," performed by Celine Dion, is a brilliant deadpan success, the performer gorgeously juxtaposing her own rock ballad beauty against the asininity of the concept. It's a fantastic song in every regard, albeit one that is not connected in any way to the score. That score, meanwhile, is, according to its publicity campaign, the first ever to force an "explicit content" parental advisory on its album for its incorporation of profanity directly into its musical recording. This appropriate feat was served up by Tyler Bates, who had collaborated with newly arrived director David Leitch multiple times and had proven his chops in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, where his music was equally assailed by extensive song placements. The original music for 2016's Deadpool was the sorry work of Tom Holkenborg (Junkie XL), who provided the concept with arguably the worst noise ever placed into a Marvel film. For some listeners, the replacement of Holkenborg with Bates will alone yield enough merit to generate interest in the sequel score.
