Review: Harebrained as ever, 'Deadpool 2' doesn't disappoint

At a recent masking of "Deadpool 2," the hearing didn't catch up when the ending credits came up, rcdm.ru patiently seance done the scrolling name calling of sensory system personal effects supervisors and kindling specialists. Real "Deadpool" fans bang to amaze about until the ushers chuck them come out.

That's because the filmmakers aren't message with containing their sprawling, lawless and subverter wedge in any conventional corner. No, in the global of Deadpool, eventide the boring conclusion credits are studded with jokes and teases.

So bind onto your seating as Ryan Sir Joshua Reynolds erst more than dons the cerise cause and katana swords for this saucy, overstuffed and rattling entertaining continuation to the 2016 monumental collide with "Deadpool," which became the second-highest grossing R-rated motion-picture show domestically afterward "The Passion of the Christ." How do we recognise that? Deadpool with happiness brags just about it in the New film, continuing his breaking-the-fourth-surround sense of humor.

This visualise discharged by 20th One C George Fox shows Ryan Sir Joshua Reynolds in a conniption from "Deadpool 2." (Twentieth 100 Play a trick on via AP)

Just around of the early things that stick derided this time are "Yentl," ''Frozen," ''Stranger Things," Wolverine, Jared Kushner, content appropriation, Brad Pitt, the Norwegian set A-ha, "Basic Instinct," ''Robocop," fanny packs, "State Anything," dubstep, "Sharknado" and Reynolds himself, who mocks his disastrous earlier decision to play Green Lantern.

"Deadpool 2" is as gruesome and violent as the first, but perhaps the biggest victim is the very concept of superhero movies. Our anti-hero adores mocking the moral clarity, earnestness and predictable stunts of his distant cousins. And, as a Marvel property, he especially delights in lampooning D.C. Comics. "So dark," Deadpool says to another superhero. "Are you certain you're not from the DC Universe of discourse?"

In this film, which reunites the original writing team of Rhett Reese and Paul Warnick, we begin by finding our unkillable mercenary in the same domestic bliss where we left him. But if "Deadpool" was an origin story, "Deadpool 2" is a quest tale and our hero this time encounters the time traveling soldier Cable (Josh Brolin), a motley crew of mutants he calls X-Force - "Isn't that a lilliputian derivative?" someone asks snarkily - and various superheroes and mutants, all set to a lively soundtrack that includes Air Supply, Peter Gabriel, "Annie" and an original song with filthy lyrics. If something can be oddly sweet while heads are being decapitated, it's this film.

Some favorites from the first film are back - some only briefly - such as housemate Leslie Uggams, girlfriend Morena Baccarin and cab driver Karan Soni. The new characters don't have time to make much of an impression, except for Zazie Beetz from "Atlanta" who has a great turn as Domino, a strong, sardonic superhero who relies on luck. (Someone please write her own film.)

Deadpool, of course, helps us along the film's convoluted plot with such post-modern cracks as "Swelled CGI struggle sexual climax up!" or the put-down, "That's good slothful writing" or, after a cool sequence, "Recount me they got that in slowly gesture." Director David Leitch replaces Tim Miller but there's been no noticeable change in tone or corrosion in the franchise's terrific special effects. If anything, the surprising success of the original has resulted in more money and more insane sequences, like a chase sequence with a truck convoy and a bizarre scene when Deadpool's legs regrow after he is cut in half, giving him baby limbs for a time.

Reynolds is once again at his arch and nihilist best here, while acting and jumping in so much facial prosthetics that it makes him look like he's inside melted cheese - or, as the first movie put it, an avocado that had relations with an older avocado.

To really appreciate "Deadpool 2" you have to have seen the original and probably every other Marvel superhero film, too. And be up on pop culture, from Cher to Broadway musicals.
