Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
After losing the love of his life, 4th wall-breaking mercenary Wade Wilson aka Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) must protect Russel (Julian Dennison) must assemble a team of mutants and protect Russel from Cable (Josh Brolin), a no-nonsense, dangerous cyborg from the future and Deadpool must learn the most important lesson of all, to be part of a family again.
Wade's main goal throughout the film is to reform Russell through non-violent means (regarding the kid himself, everyone else is fair game.) When he gets hit by Russell's fire, the red on his suit gets burned/infused with ash and turns gray. Add in a hood and some prayer beads and you've got Zenpool. See more »
At the beginning of the film, Deadpool says he was on top of 2,000 gallons of gasoline. In fact, he laid on seven 55 gallon drums for a total of only 385 gallons, and several of the drums were labeled as kerosene. However Deadpool tends to exaggerate his statements and was just being dramatic. 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.

End credits presented as Deadpool's "blueprints," with a Deadpool drawing matching its respective credit (I.e. with a camera for cinematography, or dressed as another character). See more »
When considering 'Deadpool 2,' there hasn't been another superhero sequel as good if not better than the original since Christopher Nolan flexed his muscles in the genre with 'The Dark Knight.'
The main body of 'Deadpool 2' blends together the action, plot and soundtrack to such a high degree that it's virtually unparalleled compared to other films. From recent memory, the only other film that comes close-besides the first Deadpool-was last year's 'Baby Driver.'
The film's dialogue is packed with movie references, nods at pop culture, and even jokes at Ryan Reynold's own expense, so much so that a second viewing would absolutely be necessary to try and catch them all.
The movie isn't perfect. For example, the first half of Cable's storyline feels a bit disjointed from the rest of the film. However, it steadily becomes increasingly well integrated over time.
However, for a franchise that prides itself on violent irreverence, it'd be unthinkable to assume that they were capable of making audiences well up with emotion at the end, yet they had the entire theater choking back tears, a rare achieve that strongly rounds out this film and places among the best in its class.
