Deadpool was great. Deadpool 2 is better still

Deadpool was great. Deadpool 2 is better still

He co-directed John Wick (86%) and helmed Atomic Blonde (77%).

There certainly is a lot of pressure put on the sequel to the 2016 box-office hit, "Deadpool".

The film is expected to take a flying start at the box office worldwide, in India too it is expected to rake in a huge amount of money though it won't be any closer to what Avengers: Infinity War did.

"Hilariously self-aware and satisfying on multiple levels, Deadpool 2 continues the relentless lampooning and scattershot jokes of the first movie, but pulls together a much better story", writes Brian Truitt of USA Today, praising the film's several heartwarming moments alongside a seemingly endless arsenal of jokes, many of them pointed at DC and Marvel films.

Ryan Reynolds arrived at a special screening of Deadpool 2 along with his wife, Blake Lively.

Nobody expected the first Deadpool movie to be a hit. The straight-laced metal monster Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapicic) ferries him back to Professor Charles Xavier's X-Mansion where Deadpool will - hopefully - heal his tired soul just enough to kill himself and join his beloved Vanessa in the sweet hereafter. They're trying to contain a young mutant, Russell (Julian Dennison, the young discovery from "Hunt for the Wilderpeople"), with fire-throwing powers and a beef against the headmaster (Eddie Marsan) of the orphanage where he's being held.

Going rogue on the X-Men lands Deadpool in a prison for mutants with Russell and that's when the movie really takes off.

The phrase "women in refrigerators" was coined in 1999 by Gail Simone, a comics writer (who actually wrote Marvel's "Deadpool" comic for a spell), to describe the exhausted plot device of killing a character's wife or girlfriend to give the hero incentive to kick butt.

The action picks up and becomes extremely violent. Reynolds is a really good singer. (His Deadpool 2 character, Cable, is a fairly dour antihero, which is kind of fitting with how dour Thanos is.) So much of what happens in Deadpool 2 feels like a series of sketches, or barely interconnected episodes, as opposed to a natural extension of the character or a feature-length plot: Deadpool Trains as an X-Man!

Both the deadly wit and decapitating katanas are, once again, wielded by Ryan Reynold's potty mouthed antihero, who attempts to overcome a certain something bad that happens (how's that for playing vague with spoilers?) by saving a young mutant named Russell Collins (Hunt for the Widlerpeople's Julian Dennison) aka Firefist, because his fists turn to fire, and thwarting the time-traveling robo-assassin - a "grumpy old f*cker with a Winter Soldier arm" - Cable (played by the battle scarred but very sexy Josh Brolin).

Also in the cast is Zazie Beetz who plays Domino and member of the X-Force, made up of Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Colossus (Stefan Kapicic), Bedlam (Terry Crews), Shatterstar (Lewis Tan), Rictor (Bill Skarsgard), and Pete Wisdom (Rob Delaney). It is full of surprises and incredibly amusing.

Following his unmasking after failing to advance to the next round, the audience and panelists during the episode's recording of Masked Singer erupted in shock, and many tried to snap pictures of the Hollywood star.

Much like its predecessor, Deadpool 2 is less a movie than a smirky, feature-length meme generator. The decision to replace Tim Miller with David Leitch in the director's chair for Part Deux was a sign that the notches were certainly being cranked up to 11 and indeed the action is noticably bigger and slicker (and, of course, more expensive) but Deadpool 2 is, for the most part, a case of bigger doesn't necessarily mean better. In keeping with the rest of the movie, it's still fairly small-scale and character-focused, and surprisingly, it's emotionally effective too.

Before he left, the actor thanked the crowd and the show for having him, saying: 'This was such a thrill. There's a scene a third of the way into the credits that's (I'm serious here) the best credits/post credits footage I've ever seen in a superhero movie.
