If there's one drawback to the zippy nature of the film, and the way it storms through major plot points with little time to soak up what's going on, it's that some of the moments where it's clear they want things to be a little more dramatic and heartfelt fall a little flat because you're expecting something to amusing to kill the tension.

A little bit of fan service is a nice tip of the hat to the diehard fans that pushed for a Deadpool film for years, but Deadpool 2 often goes overboard, stuffing in too many nods to the larger X-Men universe and other superhero films instead of making jokes that actually make sense within the context of the film. The plot, even if "derivative" (yes, Domino, I am stealing your joke) of Days of Future Past, is better than the archetypal premise of the first movie. With some major cameos and nostalgic moments, Deadpool 2 gets an extra brownie point or rather a star, for its mid-credit scenes (Yea, well, there's no post-credit). This is not it. Deadpool even says I love you while exiting!
This is in-your-face entertainment.
There are so many pop-culture references in the humor that the movie is like a cinematic meme generator, and there are so many '80s soundtrack ballads amid the violence to keep you off-balance that you will eventually surrender to the silliness. Her addition to the roster is arguably the best part of Deadpool 2, and Beetz portrays the hero with an effortless cool that leaves audiences hungry for more. The film's near two hour running does feel a little long at times, dragging down the pace. I lost count early on.
Sounds like this whodunnit tale could become more of a 'who fucking did that? It's essentially Family Guy syndrome - constantly referencing something doesn't necessarily make it amusing, a notion the film unfortunately never grasps.
Deadpool 2 deals with a new nemesis, Cable (Josh Brolin), who is sent to capture a mutant under the protection of Deadpool. Director David Leitch (of John Wick and Atomic Blonde fame) does such an awesome job here. Think of Deadpool as the Marvel comedian, gathering material from the MCU (as well as the X-Men films), and bashing everyone and everything inside the universe.
The team's initial appearance in the movie makes for one of the most hilarious and disgusting things you will see on film this year. They plan to write Deadpool 3 after Drew Goddard's planned X-Force spin-off with Deadpool, Cable and overly lucky mutant Domino (Zazie Beetz). In the pantheon of superhero movies, few are as proudly individualistic as Tim Miller's Deadpool, and, as Deadpool himself wastes no time in reminding us, few have been as successful.
Dressed in Deadpool colours - black and red - Blake had a pretty cool bag which was made to look like a cassette tape with "party mix" written on one side and "chill beats" on the other.
