When Deadpool and X-Force execute a freefall jump from a CH-47 Chinook helicopter to rescue Firefist, AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" is playing in the background; according to David Blakely - an ex-British Army Captain and former member of the elite Pathfinder Platoon of 16th Air Assault Brigade - the same song is also played when the Pathfinders carry out any jumps 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.

On December 12, 2018, Fox released a re-cut version of the film under the title "Once Upon a Deadpool." In an homage to The Princess Bride, the film features Deadpool telling the story to Fred Savage (playing himself). This version toned down the film's violence and cut or bleeped out much of the profanity in order to receive a PG-13 rating in the U.S. instead of the original R rating, but also added some material omitted from the original theatrical release which was included in the 'Super Duper Cut'.

Sequels are tough. When I first saw this, I didn't think it quite lived up to the first but on rewatch that's flipped a bit. It's still a flawless Reynolds performance but now he has a solid supporting cast around him, a story that has some meat on it and, surprisingly some growth for the Merc with the Mouth. Still flawed, but so much fun.
Also, much love for Domino and Cable here.
