Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds is a surprisingly great singer

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds is a surprisingly great singer

The Deadpool franchise is known for getting extremely meta with its gags, with Deadpool constantly breaking the fourth wall to make it clear he is fully aware that he is a character in a superhero movie. To the actor's faux anger, one of the judges thought he was Donald Trump before the big reveal. Filthy, ferocious and amusing to a near-indecent degree, Deadpool 2 bests its predecessor by doubling down on the gleefully self-aware source comics' idea that anything worth doing is worth overdoing: excess and escalation are, essentially, in its DNA.

Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) are back to help Deadpool go on the straight and narrow by becoming an X-Men "trainee" (he sports a yellow "trainee" jersey and everything). Beetz's Domino doesn't quite get the same chance to explore her famous character, but Beetz establishes a formidable physical presence in her fight scenes as well as a sly cynical distance from the boys. You see? Deadpool wasn't lying when he told us a few minutes ago that this filthy-minded picture was "a family film"! He even forms a team of his own, X-Force (he's offended by gender-specific name "X-Men"), to keep Russell safe.

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.

Trump promises to lower drug prices but blueprint lacks details
And older drugs for common ailments like diabetes and asthma routinely see price hikes around 10 percent annually. Last year was a record-breaking year for new drug approvals from the FDA.

The actor previously told New York Times earlier this month that he has "always had anxiety" noting that he still feels like he's about to throw up before every talk-show appearance. He is the ideal straight man to Reynolds' outlandish Deadpool.

You may notice something familiar about Cable, and that's because Brolin also plays the supervillain Thanos in Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War", still in theaters. That trick of combining ironic humor with a touch of authentic human emotion was key to the first film, and the same holds true in Deadpool 2. This is the part of the movie that has the most spoilers, so see this movie before social media ruins it. There's nothing particularly great or memorable, and that's a shame given Leitch's inventiveness on previous films like John Wick and Atomic Blonde. Very little, and I would never do that, even if I hadn't been expressly warned not to in a jokey pre-screening PSA from star Ryan Reynolds. This movie is hiding a lot of awesome, super enjoyable surprises that could spoil the experience if one were to know them going in.

Glance quickly at the poster for Deadpool 2 (tagline: "From the Studio That Killed Wolverine") and you might worry slightly.
