And the numbers for the first wave of reviews Tuesday bear out the similarities between the films: The sequel is doing slightly better on Metacritic.com (average score: 68) than the first film did (65), and the follow-up is running almost dead-even on Rotten Tomatoes (84 percent "fresh"), compared with the original (83). Kevin Feige is a brilliant man who has successfully built something unparalleled in moviemaking, but within his system it is hard for a film with as much personality as Deadpool 2 to be created. But more importantly it salvaged the character of Wade Wilson after he was so badly fumbled in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Judging by the critical reaction to Deadpool 2 - which has been sending out mixed messages to say the least - even the Merc with a Mouth would struggle to sweet talk his way out of this one. If anyone deserves a spin-off, it's Josh Brolin.
Also returning from the first movie are his uneasy X-Men allies Colossus (the digitally generated metal dude again voiced by Andre Tricoteux) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), who, Deadpool is surprised to see, now has a girlfriend (Shioli Kutsuna).
As with the first film, it proves the ideal antidote to superhero fatigue, gleefully poking fun at the genre via Deadpool's constant fourth wall breaking, and constantly pushing boundaries with humour and violence. There's action aplenty throughout the film, but Deadpool 2 doesn't bog down in it as many overcooked comic-book sequels do. Case in point is a poignant, prolonged death scene in which a character utters the line "the Academy are watching".
This post contains MAJOR spoilers for Deadpool 2. And Ryan just does whatever he wants. We don't need Reynolds commenting on everything, all the time. Because of Leitch's stunt background, he's been able to stage truly stunning action sequences in flicks like John Wick and Atomic Blonde, and he transfers that over to Deadpool 2. Or that he's obsessed with a conspiracy theory involving the song Papa, Can You Hear Me?
Vanity Fair: Unfortunately, two movies in, the Deadpool franchise has not only already run out of jokes-it's become everything it was supposed to hate.
Everything you loved about Deadpool is alive and well. "Worst of all is Karan Soni's taxi driver Dopinder, a weedy, emasculated Indian stereotype whose superhero aspirations make him the beta-male butt of the joke". We might someday see Mystique shape-shift into The Hulk to fight Mr. This means that the device which allows him to travel through time gets all its energy used up for the noble cause of saving Deadpool's life.
And speaking of those credits, don't leave your seats when they start - there is yet some real fun to be had. And no matter how many breakups we've seen this year, as long as they are solid, our heart is at peace.
