Deadpool 2 Film Review: The Merc with the Mouth is back

Just one more. Come on. Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) continues to be an ass-kicking, wise-cracking buffoon.

This time round, Atomic Blonde director David Leitch ("one of the guys who killed John Wick's dog") takes the reins, with Reynolds credited as one of the film's writers. Be sure to tell us all of your thoughts in the comment section down below!

Herald Sun: Even at a generous running time of 120 minutes, Deadpool 2 still packs a stack of fresh, fast and furious material into the mix, which all but guarantees hard line fans will up for a repeat viewing sooner than later.

The problem is the surprise element that made the first film so enjoyable is no longer there.

Similarly, Vulture damns Deadpool 2 by saying that while the franchise might score meta-laughs at DC and Marvel Studios's expense, the film is "less a satire" of superhero saturation at the cineplex "than a symptom of it". The issues are there, yet luckily Deadpool 2 compensates for with the content and the conveyance. "So, I don't know, I would assume that it's just gonna be business as usual, but fuck if I know".

'I don't know. At this point, I don't even want to think about it.

DEADPOOL 2 is bloody, whacky, gruesome nonstop fun, it's a worthy sequel that stays true to the genre, satisfies the hype and confirms that whatever happened in 2016 in the name DEADPOOL, was not a fluke and to make an enjoyable R rated parody on super heroes is not a joke.

Leitch, in contrast, comes from the world of stunt coordination. But suffice it to say, the humor - much of it consisting of in-jokes about other comic book movies - is rapid-fire and consistently amusing. "There's always a chance I suppose, but I think we felt like that was the best goodbye for Hugh as Wolverine". Less, high-quality jokes would have worked better. He is in the moment and you have to play along with him.

Once again, Reynolds is terrific as the self-styled "Merc with the mouth", and the role provides a near-perfect match of actor and character, fully exploiting his wise-cracking skills, his bone-dry delivery and his self-awareness. Trying to recover from the disaster, Wade first joins the X-Men and later finds himself protecting a kid mutant Russell (Julian Dennison) from a time-travelling mutant Cable (Josh Brolin). You need something to care about to move the story and have people invested in the story.

Did you enjoy Deadpool 2's post-credits sequence? With writers going insane with the jokes, Deadpool 2 doesn't give us the opportunity to adjust with its shifting tone (a tragic scene is immediately followed by the humourous credits sequence). "Since I've become a father though, I can't stop taking my own children's photos and showing them to my friends".
