USA TODAY movie critic Brian Truitt, said that Zazie Beetz is the movie's "captivating standout," while others on Twitter have called for the character to get her own spinoff film. (To which co-writer Paul Wernick responds, "I don't see why not.") See more »
In the opening scene, Deadpool turns all the stove dials counterclockwise (presumably to turn on the gas). A moment later as Deadpool is standing in front of the stove, the dials are mostly back up at the 12 o'clock position. See more »
Fuck Wolverine. First he rides my coattails with the R-rating, and then, that hairy motherfucker ups the ante by dying. What a dick. Well, guess what, Wolvie? I'm dying in this one, too.

At the Latin America dubbing, some names are changed to adapt the jokes to the local humor. One of the names Wade suggest for their son was Chayanne, Felicity was changed for the TV Show Chespirito, and Dave Matthews becomes Ricardo Arjona, an (un)popular singer. See more »
Hilariously funny: a great follow-up to the first Deadpool movie
After his trials and tribulations in the first movie, the life of Wade Wilson (aka Deadpool) has now settled down. He's still killing bad guys, but it's more business-as-usual now. Moreover, he and girlfriend Vanessa are madly in love and want to start a family. Then a tragic event throws his life into disarray.
The first Deadpool movie was great, and was a very pleasant surprise, being a comic book movie. Instead of the usual CGI-driven, all style no substance, drivel that most comic book movies are, Deadpool was a comedy, and a really good one. Outrageously funny, original and entertaining. Clever, snappy, laugh-a-minute dialogue. Some great cultural references and in-jokes, especially regarding other comic book movies.
Deadpool 2 continues in the same vein. Some brilliantly funny, laugh-out-loud moments, often based around in-jokes, cultural references and film-industry-deprecating humour.
More action than the first, which is disappointing. Part of Deadpool's charm is that it parodies other comic book movies. By becoming an action movie it threatens to become what it is parodying. There's always an element of humour involved though, even in the deadliest fight scenes, and in so doing the writer and director manage to avoid the hypocrisy of the film becoming what it mocks.
Great work again from Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool: his comedic timing and delivery is spot-on. Good supporting cast, with Josh Brolin playing a great straight character to Reynolds' clowning.
