Deadpool 2: The best R-rated family film of 2018

Deadpool vs. Stephen Colbert

Deadpool vs. Stephen Colbert

Deadpool 2 is in theaters from May 18. Otherwise, we don't think you'll be able to keep that box of popcorn in. Not all of the jokes land due to the sheer quantity of them, but for the most part it'll have you cracking up much like the first one did (unless you didn't find the first one amusing in which case, you nearly definitely won't find this one funny).

The next segment sees Deadpool zip back in time to the scene earlier in the movie when his fiancé Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) was killed by an assassin, with Wade managing to kill the last attacker with some kitchenware instead.

It was also extremely daring of them to poke fun at Marvel superheroes (how can they not since the whole world is still recovering from depression after Avengers: Infinity War), insult the DC universe and even throw shade at Reynolds' own film career.

"You're in the big leagues now, kid", he tells himself, before the camera cuts to the front page of the script - which is for Reynolds' OTHER critically-panned superhero movie Green Lantern, the butt of many jokes in the original Deadpool. Reynolds is the embodiment of the Deadpool character, he has once again carried his fine form and made the movie as epic as it is.

Considering the risks 20th Century Fox took in greenlighting Deadpool, the 2016 film was released and became a global success, it seemed the risk now fell on the shoulders of its sequel. And if you pay close attention, you just might pick up a moral value or two as well.

With Cable, Josh Brolin gets to play his second fully developed comic book character in as many weeks and he works superbly well as a straight-faced reactor to Deadpool's wisecracks.

So when it hits you, it will knock your socks off. There are so many laughs in this movie you'll miss the next one - they come that fast.

Zazie Beetz (as Domino): "Isn't that a little derivative?" We'll see. He hung it up.

Facing off in the Playground Rules game on the Scott Mills Show on BBC Radio 1, Reynolds and Brolin went head-to-head trading insults with each other.

But easily the best gag here is both Russell and Deadpool calling out Colossus for using a line from RoboCop while trying to contain the situation, and the big metal guy looking so dejected afterwards.

Deadpool then offered Colbert some booking advice. But at the time it wasn't something that was a reality; it was just something we loved. The majority of "Deadpool 2" is a production that hits you in the gut with the action and repeatedly slams your amusing bone with the often juvenile humor.
