Ryan Reynolds is a singing unicorn in his latest Deadpool escapade

Ryan Reynolds is a singing unicorn in his latest Deadpool escapade

It's why he gets away with talking directly to the audience, is derivative about the genre and can make quips while shooting someone through the head. Wilson, who dubs himself Deadpool, remains a constantly wisecracking presence.

When we catch up with Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool, he's busily planning babies with his handsome Vanessa (Morena Baccarin). They aren't why movie-goers love Deadpool, of course, and they aren't what makes "Deadpool 2" such a fun way to spend a couple hours, but they add depth, something relatable amid the almost nonstop zaniness. Even if the money is short, the scene's set for a sequel.

Doubters might ask if any over-15s film needs so many gags about butts, yet the seamless merger of tones and characters does show skill. He co-directed John Wick (86%) and helmed Atomic Blonde (77%). ("Deadpool 2" also includes some very of-the-moment swipes at real-life political entities, and I'll just leave it at that.) This is a movie and also a movie-about-movies, and it works so well on both levels. This time around, Deadpool is almost recruited into the X-Men by Colossus, though he mostly spends his time deciding that he wants to wrangle together his own warped family of mutants and help out a troubled teenaged mutant (Julian Dennison). And despite what trailers might suggest, there isn't one arch-villain.

Zazie Beetz plays the very lucky Domino in "Deadpool 2". "It's an unusual structure", says Wernick. If going bigger (not necessarily narratively, but with the sheer amount of characters introduced and returning who all simply don't get enough time to make a lasting impression besides Cable) and suffering in quality for it is meant to be commentary on the overall state of Hollywood blockbusters feeling the need to up the stakes to the point of hurting the project, then I suppose that spirit is kept alive, but it's downright shocking that the self-aware franchise doesn't include a witty remark on the subject. The Academy Award-nominated actor sees this as simply the beginning. It is a constant comic barrage which, over the one minute less than two hours runtime, remains mostly on the right side of being too much.

He wasn't always the great character we know and love.

There was never a final draft. The humor in this film far surpasses that of the first, with an abundance of jokes about almost every Marvel or DC film that came out since the original film in 2016.

"In the process of directing, you have to make those bold choices, swing for the fences and be provocative", he says.

Worse still, some of the fight scenes, particularly the ones with Cable and Deadpool, come off as lazy and boring.


When Reynolds was revealed, they screamed in excitement and desperately tried to get selfies with the star.

So expect amped-up action and "jaw-dropping" sequences. Stunt co-ordinator Jonathan Eusebio's gets in on the action too.

Deadpool 2 is absolutely a better film than the first, in part because it doesn't have to waste time on an origin story. The straight-laced metal monster Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapicic) ferries him back to Professor Charles Xavier's X-Mansion where Deadpool will - hopefully - heal his tired soul just enough to kill himself and join his beloved Vanessa in the sweet hereafter.

The storyline goes as such - edging closer to becoming an X-Man but not quite, Deadpool soon becomes embroiled with a fellow Mutant (Hunt For The Wilderpeople's breakout star Julian Dennison) and a time-travelling cyborg named Cable (Brolin) and mayhem of various degrees of magnitude ensues once the "derivatively" named X-Force their debut. Reynolds was born to play Deadpool and I hope he keeps doing it forever, but in more of a supporting or ensemble position.

"Thank you, guys, for having me". "Go bother Prof X", Stark supposedly replied.

Hide your Chimichangas, the Merc with the Mouth is back, baby!

Deadpool 2 is released on Tuesday 15 May.
