Deadpool 2 is so full of superhero movie in-jokes, one suspects it will be almost incomprehensible in a few years. But for now, this is the franchise we need to deflate all the franchises we probably don't.
There are gleefully over-the-top fight sequences (often hyperviolent to suit the R rating), too many pop culture references to count, colourful and lovable characters and quips that come at you every second.
Deadpool 2 is similar but superior to its predecessor. It is loaded with new characters for Reynolds to play with and brings out a different form (but possibly the best form) from director David Leitch.
A typical example of a sequel not living up to what came before, Deadpool's R-Rated antics already feel old and if the character is the first casualty of the Fox/Disney merger, it probably won't be the end of the world.
The best part of Deadpool 2 is what occurs during the closing credits. The worst part of Deadpool 2 is what occurs before the opening credits. As for that vast middle ground between the opening and closing credits? It's mostly a kick.
Hired gun Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool, horribly scarred and genetically messed with but, on the upside, now virtually indestructible, flat-out refuses to take life seriously until it deals him a deadly blow.
