'Deadpool 2' review: The Merc with a Mouth's newest adventure DOA

  • Josh Brolin admits he ‘hated’ The Goonies for a really long time

"I'm dyin' in this one, too!"

"Ryan was the one who called and said, 'Hey man, I got something for you in this one". Well that, plus its cheerfully inappropriate humor and over-the-top-and-beyond violence.

"Deadpool 2" screenwriter Rhett Reese noted that he and fellow "Deadpool 2" screenwriter Paul Wernick intentionally wrote their script to accommodate future movies.

"Despite a tendency toward elephantitis in story and scope, not to mention blatant franchise pandering, Deadpool 2 still plays like the runt of the comic-book litter".

Three families behind ISIS-inspired bombings in Indonesia's Surabaya
Police said they killed four suspected members of JAD in Cianjur, West Java Province, and arrested two others, the BBC reported. Police also increased security in nearly all major churches in big cities such as Jakarta , Surabaya , and Medan.

The film kind of gets off to a rickety start, as Wade takes his superhero/vigilante act on the road via a series of montages set in China, Japan, Italy and finally home.

Also in the cast are T.J. Miller as Deadpool's sidekick, Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al and Karan Soni as Dopinder, the cab driver who wants to join the team.

Josh Brolin jumps from voicing Thanos in "Avengers: Infinity War" to starring in the next box-office hit of the summer as the time-traveling tough guy Cable. Reduced to moping and quoting George Michael's "Careless Whisper", Wade finds renewed goal when encounters with wayward mutant kid Russell (Julian Dennison) and vengeful cyborg-from-the-future Cable (Josh Brolin) test his question: is family more than just an F-word?

Deadpool 2 releases in theatres this week, and film star Ryan Reynolds has been out in full force promoting the movie, from showing off the movie's official video game to appearing on a Korean TV show wearing a unicorn mask.

Somehow, none of Brad Stevens' peers voted him as NBA's best coach
This Coach of the Year Award is separate from the Red Auerbach Coach of the Year Award, which is voted on by the media. So while they may believe multiple coaches are worthy, there's only one option.

Reynolds is as good here as he was the first time around - clearly, it's the role he was born to play, and he's loving every second of it.

The "merc with a mouth" returns for more head-crushing and wise-cracking, this time facing a powerful enemy and brushes with - gasp - real emotional stakes. Director David Leitch brings at least some of the stunt-driven energy that made his "Atomic Blonde" so thrilling.

There are even more crude jokes in this one, and thanks to the director of "John Wick" taking over, the fight scenes are even more insane.

This is Deadpool. He fights dirty, talks dirty and gets dirty to get the job done, regardless of what the job is. Some critics are more muted in their praise, pointing out what they believe to be ethnic stereotypes among supporting characters and some obvious franchise-building with its new X-Force team.

Rockets built to beat Warriors, but defending champs take talks in stride
When a team plays against Boston, they are playing against Celtic pride and history, which makes them such tough competitors. This is only the third Golden State-Houston playoff meeting, and all have come in the last four seasons.

That said, this is Deadpool after all and the funnies do come thick and while some hit better than others (many DC/Marvel/superhero quips are the highlights as is the closing credits sequence which tops anything that has come before it anywhere) there's plenty to chew on for the advocates with Reynolds and the superb show-stealing Zazie Beetz as Domino the biggest triumphs. It does what a sequel should do: it expands the world of the original, adds new characters to the mix, and-as unlikely as it sounds-develops the protagonist in interesting new ways. Similarly frustrating is a touchingly sad line from the troubled child who asks the last time anyone has seen a plus-sized superhero while debating whether to use his gift for good or vengeance, but it turns out to just be a disappointing throwaway line made all the more a missed opportunity considering that the first movie legitimately earned moving themes on physical appearances. He also suggests viewers stay after the credits roll: "it's worth sitting through to the end - especially for any viewer who was too distracted by the decapitations, fireballs and impalings of the final battle sequence to make out the lyrics of the Carmina Burana-ish chorus playing in the background", he writes.
