    Agreed, to a point. It went on so long that it stopped being funny. But then, it just kept going on even beyond that, to where it winded up being funny again, to me at least.

    Thought this was great fun, and I enjoyed it more than first movie.

    Utterly hilarious, crass and outrageous, which was expected. I liked this better than the first one.

    Well that scene goes entirely against what the whole rest of the movie was trying to do. I could see why it was cut.

    This was fun! Like the first Deadpool, I don't think it amounts to much beyond its silliness, but the silliness mostly worked. Whenever the flick goes for heart, it feels less effective to me (did anybody in-film mention how this was essentially Looper with more dick jokes?). And the reveal of pedophilia as a secondary plot mover kinda bugged me. It's also a bit odd that the film is all about not murdering in revenge, and then it celebrates the taxi driver slaking his bloodlust by running down a villain, but I can't imagine taking this film's ethics seriously is a good use of time. And most of these superhero flicks biff it on clearly separating justice/vigilantism/revenge, so you know, whatever. Parachute scene = fantastic.

    I thought they talked a few times about the staff at the anti-mutant hospital being rapists. Was that just a joke? I know the first time they do it, it's a joke (Deadpool just kills the guy 'cause he kinda looks like a pedophile, all pallid and stringy), but I thought they mentioned it occasionally in the second and third acts as a pretext for making the wholesale murder at the end a little more palatable.

    I could've totally misread that, it was late Friday night after a real fuck of a week.

    I'm not saying you're wrong, I just thought that was all Deadpool jokes, not actual pedophilia. They hated mutants and thought they were abominations, I would agree with you it would've been weird if they were fucking them. It also would've been wildly inconsistent if Deadpool killed weird stringy guy in a heartbeat but let ringleader live.

    I'm saying if you're right, I agree with you. If I'm right, then we agree too? *holds hand, skips away*

    I don't remember all the details, but I read the film the same way DaMU did, ie: the dialogue implies the kids are being actively abused by their captors. I assumed it was written that way to justify the "heroes" murdering the villains.

    I'd rewatch to confirm but ...ya know ... it's "Deadpool 2."

    Watched this on Mother's Day while at the family and waiting for the parents to get ready. It works as a spoof of comic book movies, but certainly overdoes its stay. I think you may like it more if you're hoping to see certain comic book characters that you never got to before, but if you're a non-comic book fan, you probably won't like this. I feel like that's what spoof movies should ultimately be able to do.

    Also, the CGI is fifteen years in the past.
