The actor playing "Redneck #2" is credited as "Dickie Greenleaf". Redneck #2 is actually played by Matt Damon in heavy prosthetic makeup; Dickie Greenleaf is the name of Jude Law's character in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), whom Damon's character (Tom Ripley) murders and impersonates. See more »
(at around 13 mins) When Deadpool chases his girlfriend's murderer, a short car chase with screeching tires ensues. Car tires physically cannot screech on such a completely flooded road. See more »
Fuck Wolverine. First he rides my coattails with the R-rating, and then, that hairy motherfucker ups the ante by dying. What a dick. Well, guess what, Wolvie? I'm dying in this one, too.

In India, the CBFC (Central Board Of Film Certification) demanded that audio edits be made to the film before the film could receive an 'A' rating (meaning that only an adult audience; whom are aged aged 18 and over can attend screenings of the film). These changes bleeped out some heavier profanities from the film; the violence and sexual humor however was left uncut. See more »
Hilariously funny: a great follow-up to the first Deadpool movie
After his trials and tribulations in the first movie, the life of Wade Wilson (aka Deadpool) has now settled down. He's still killing bad guys, but it's more business-as-usual now. Moreover, he and girlfriend Vanessa are madly in love and want to start a family. Then a tragic event throws his life into disarray.
The first Deadpool movie was great, and was a very pleasant surprise, being a comic book movie. Instead of the usual CGI-driven, all style no substance, drivel that most comic book movies are, Deadpool was a comedy, and a really good one. Outrageously funny, original and entertaining. Clever, snappy, laugh-a-minute dialogue. Some great cultural references and in-jokes, especially regarding other comic book movies.
Deadpool 2 continues in the same vein. Some brilliantly funny, laugh-out-loud moments, often based around in-jokes, cultural references and film-industry-deprecating humour.
More action than the first, which is disappointing. Part of Deadpool's charm is that it parodies other comic book movies. By becoming an action movie it threatens to become what it is parodying. There's always an element of humour involved though, even in the deadliest fight scenes, and in so doing the writer and director manage to avoid the hypocrisy of the film becoming what it mocks.
Great work again from Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool: his comedic timing and delivery is spot-on. Good supporting cast, with Josh Brolin playing a great straight character to Reynolds' clowning.
