Deadpool 2 film review: Dead amusing sequel for masked Marvel clown

"I am sworn to biggest of secrecy: 'Rob, don't you dare mention Shatterstar!". He's determined to save Russell (who names himself Firefist and is played by Hunt for the Wilderpeople's Julian Dennison) from the time-traveling metal-armed mutant Cable (Josh Brolin) whose motivations become clear as the film progresses.

Two years after surprising us with smutty meta humour, the Merc with a mouth is back with a bigger, smuttier follow up that, surprisingly, works despite being an obviously rushed up sequel.

'I would say we're identical, with the exception that I have this tiny little person inside my brain that says "don't say that", whereas Deadpool doesn't have that person so everything, every thought just comes out as you will'. "I think Peter is an example of that". Although there are a few scenes where you tend to take your eyes off the screen, you instantly bring back your attention because you want to know what next could Deadpool do.

Deadpool 2 hits theaters Friday.

"We committed to it pretty early on, because he's never been done justice until now", Reese said.

Plus, Juggernaut's appearance tied into a couple of comic book rivalries. 'But don't take my word for it, read all of it'.




To be quite honest, I was very sceptical about Brolin being cast as Cable.

They are truly hilarious, possibly the funniest part of an already very amusing movie.

"It felt like something you could imagine happening in a world where there were super powers". But genuinely smart and amusing people swore to me that Deadpool was smart and different and original.

And then it turned out Deadpool 2, while not great, didn't suck the way the first one did.

It's hard to tell unless you speak Portuguese, but the title cards in the Deadpool promo are hilarious parodies of the milestone markers in the actual Marvel featurette. Undoing Vanessa's death undoes the movie (I'm not saying fridge-ing Vanessa was a good idea, and I think it's kind of weak that the movie doesn't mock a exhausted trope, but nevertheless it's the inciting event), so I would expect her to remain dead. And then you sit down and watch it. "I loved it, man, because I went into the comics". "Deadpool 2" is a film seemingly assembled from the blooper reel, and if you can take the violence and language, it's the living end. New director David Leitch, whose credits include Atomic Blonde and the first John Wick movie, keeps the elaborate (and bloody) action coherent for the most part; and at least one of the new mutants introduced-the charismatically cool Domino, played by Zazie Beetz, of Atlanta-should really have "SPINOFF" tattooed across her forehead. "The movie's 110 minutes, it's not 'Lord of the Rings.' It was not, 'OK, Frodo, find the damn ring!' It was more, 'Wait, you mean I don't get to hang out with Deadpool anymore?'"
