Deadpool 2 Review #2: Raunchy, Insanely Violent and Absolutely Ingenious

Fox    
   X-MAN The black sheep joins the flock

Leaks from early screenings of Deadpool 2 have revealed the five end credit scenes plus one that made preview audiences so uncomfortable it was dropped.

Supporting husband Ryan Reynolds' latest film endeavor, Blake Lively stepped out at the "Deadpool 2" premiere in NY wearing head-to-toe red and black - the movie's theme colors per its lead character's superhero suit.

Several minutes later, we see Deadpool jaunt across the world, slaughtering interchangeable villains in many countries, each shot of this montage an elaborate, frenetic long take that finds the hero stabbing and shooting, slicing off heads and arms and eventually just cold chainsawing some mooks.

Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds downplayed the chances of another Deadpool movie, saying the team will cross that bridge when they come to it. He is also killing off all the bad guys in the world, and one such mission ends up in a tragedy for him.

Meanwhile, Cable (Josh Brolin) arrives from the future armed with a big gun and a charred teddy bear (which belonged to his dead daughter) determined to hunt down and terminate Russell. Well, rejoice, for Deadpool 2 meets most of the expectations, save for going bigger (let's talk about that later). I don't even want to think about anyone else. Reviewing the first Deadpool, I carped that the star, an exuberant Reynolds puttied over with fake burn scars, is his series' own RiffTrax, pattering right over the plot's contrivances. There are so many of them! Well, then kick back, because you're gonna get so much shoved down your throat you'll need a pen shoved in your backside to combat it. The average score from these critics gives Deadpool 2 a 7.3/10.

Did you expect to be called for the sequel?

Uproxx senior editor Vince Mancini had a good amount of love for Deadpool 2, writing that it's "obnoxious", "needlessly self-aware", "drunk on its own fairly tame naughtiness", and "so stuffed full of unrelated pop culture references that it sort of feels like a meme shirt come to life" - in the very best way.

The mid-credits scene is also arguably the best credit scene to ever grace a comicbook movie - so make sure to stick around for that.

However, it's after the credits when we really see him join the action, with archive footage of Wolverine from the critically-panned 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine given a new twist.

Reynolds donned a smart dark suit over a camel-coloured cardigan while Lively wore a black dress coupled with a dark red sash tied into a bow at the waist. Reynolds has harnessed his comical energies so freaking awesome, but it is the emotional beat to his performance that makes his character such a charmer. Julian Dennison is fabulous as Firefist.

With a laugh, Reynolds explained to George Stephanopoulos, "I'm trying to get him to play Wolverine again and he won't listen". Karan Soni, however, gets to display much of his manic humour that he brought from the first movie. But the scope and the scale sadly remains the same. They are absolutely ingenious, some of the best parts of the film. The special effects are very inconsistent.

Deadpool 2 is hilarious, as raunchy and action-packed as the original.
