Continuity mistake: The tread on Deadpool's boots when on top of the crashed lorry (just after Domino lands on the inflatable panda) are different from when Juggernaut rips him in half and his legs are behind him on the floor. (01:10:45 - 01:12:35)
9. 5/10. A pretty strong sequel. I liked the idea of Deadpool trying to move on past Vanessa's death. He found purpose in protecting Russell Collins, a young mutant from Cable. I found the additions of Josh Brolin as Cable and Zazie Beetz as Domino to be major pluses. They each brought a uniqueness you rarely see in many supporting characters. If anything, I'd lobby for them to be brought back for Deadpool 3. A nice ending with humor in it as Vanessa's brought back and will hopefully be in the next sequel. I also wish for Gina Carano to return as Angel Dust.
Deadpool 2 takes a well-aimed stab at the funny bone and delivers some great action as the wisecracking Merc meets up with the likes of the time-traveling cyborg soldier Cable, the uncannily lucky Domino, the nearly unstoppable Juggernaut, a happy ninja in Yukio, noble Colossus and never-happy-to-see-Deadpool Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Watch for cameos, nods to prior X-Men related movies, and plenty of breaking the fourth wall typical of Deadpool's endless banter along with mayhem in abundance. Can Deadpool stop Cable from killing a young pyrotechnic mutant who's hellbent on revenge? While not a perfect film-pretty much wasting characters like Black Tom, Yukio and Shatterstar-it's easily a guilty pleasure for those who like Ryan Reynolds portrayal of Deadpool.
Deadpool 1 was a movie that I liked, but admittedly did not put it on the same pedestal as others did; Ryan Reynolds was great as Deadpool and the cast worked well together, but I felt the cinematography was kinda bland and the serious moments never really worked. Deadpool 2 however, whilst still having some flaws, improves on the first film quite a bit. The jokes land on almost every occasion, the action is very well choreographed and engaging, the visual style has a lot more flare to it, the characters whether old or new are worked into the movie very well, there are more twists and surprises than the first film, and the serious moments, while not always effective, work a lot more in this movie.
Deadpool: So you're an alien, I guess. How does that help us?
Shatterstar: I'm basically better than you at everything.
Deadpool: Just once, I'm gonna find a planet of people that are worse than me at everything. A bunch of functional idiots. I'm gonna go there, and I'm gonna be their Superman.
Weasel: Isn't that Canada?
Deadpool: You shut your goddamn trash mouth.
Question: Why is the man's groin blurred out in the fight-scene at the Japanese sauna? It's an R-rated movie (or unrated, depending on the cut of the film you watch), so it's not like they couldn't have shown it. The best I can figure is that it's a reference to the fact that genitals are blurred out in Japanese media due to "decency" laws. Is that what the joke was?
