Deadpool 2 reviews are in: here's what critics have to say

And, unlike some repeated jokes and gags, these references/jabs work!

This isn't the Merc with a Mouth's first musical stunt to promote the forthcoming film. His comedy touch doesn't feel as assured though, but then he's not helped by this film feeling a lot less ensemble-driven than the first. The new level to this sequence works, while the repeated joke falls flat.

Disney CEO Bob Iger has tried to soothe any fears by saying they would be interested in an R-Rated brand for films like Deadpool and Deadpool 2. The capper is a hellacious vehicle chase/fight scene that has Deadpool fighting Cable while Domino takes the wheel.

This time out, Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) has made peace with his terrible disfigurement and found enduring love with Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), though it is - as these things often are - rather short-lived. Cameos of famous people abound, and as for the violence that dominated the first film, now, Erbland argues, it seems to have more of a objective.

The original Deadpool film does still hold the record for the biggest opening weekend by an R-rated movie, and is the second-highest grossing R-rated film of all time in the US, behind only The Passion of the Christ. "Thank you guys for having me". Alongside "The Godfather Part II" and "Terminator 2", this is one of the best movie sequels ever made. Was it part of a reshoot?

When we catch up with Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool, he's busily planning babies with his lovely Vanessa (Morena Baccarin).

Mancini Becomes Italy Head Coach
He succeeds Gian Piero Ventura , who was sacked in November after Italy missed out on the World Cup for the first time since 1958. It will be a first role in global management for Mancini, who has left Russian club Zenit St Petersburg to take up the post.


Whoever wrote the script seems to be mocking Manchester United's capitalistic tendencies as Deadpool takes over the club's revered Old Trafford.

While fans of the Deadpool comic knew exactly what they were getting themselves into with the first movie, the vast majority of moviegoers only briefly knew of him from his god-awful depiction in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Though there are appearances from fun mutants from Rob Leifeld's original Deadpool mini-series, including Black Tom Cassidy and another special player hinted at in the trailers... David Leitch takes the directorial reins from Tim Miller, and Reynolds joins original scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick in the writing team. Best of all, he is the ideal straight-man foil to Deadpool's nonsense. But the X-Force has a diamond in the rough, as the standout of the team and the entire movie is Zazie Beetz as the lucky mercenary Domino. Wilson, who dubs himself Deadpool, remains a constantly wisecracking presence. Deadpool 2 easily got over a dozen big belly laughs out of me.

So can "Deadpool 2" have it both ways? There's the seeds of a good double act with Brolin's Cable here, frustratingly, but not enough to lift it off the screen just yet. There's an orgy of gun violence, as the crimson-clad Deadpool uses a dozen pistol shots to waste an assortment of thugs with machine guns; after his last bullet travels through three skulls, he sniffs the barrel and confesses into the camera, "I'm touching myself tonight". I am not Joseph. Instead, there are likely to be several X-Force movies, which I think will be refreshing. Because I would give that film an A+, but will stick with my B+ for Deadpool 2.

Will you be checking out Deadpool 2 when it comes out this weekend?
