Ryan Reynolds doesn't want his kids in 'crazy' show business

REVIEW Sequels are hard but ‘Deadpool 2’ gets it mostly right

On Tuesday night, Stephen Colbert was just wrapping up his opening monologue when an unexpected visitor dropped in: Deadpool, just in time to promote his new movie, which happens to be coming out this Friday. It's the flawless combo of fun and entertainment, abundant with action, jokes, blood and foul language that's least bothered about your sensitivity.

After the events of the first movie, Wade Wilson/Deadpool (Reynolds) is up to his usual antics.

One loved the parody of the Skyfall titles, Julian Dennison of Hunt for the Wilderpeople as a kid mutant who may turn killer, the oil portrait of Karl Marx on the walls of the Xavier Mansion and the longest demise since Bugs Bunny staged one for Elmer.

"That's a different Fox", Colbert told the comic book character.

Deadpool 2 is now in cinemas and there will no doubt be thousands of people rushing to their local popcorn-producing mega lounge to watch the movie.

After being stuck in development for over a decade, "Deadpool" broke box-office records and shattered preconceived notions about what an R-rated superhero movie could do when it debuted in February 2016. Nowadays many writers and directors seem to be too anxious about political correctness in their movies. We get to have as much fun with the marketing as we do with the actual shooting of the movie.

'Laurel' or 'Yanny'? People can't decide but we may have the answer
The viral tweet posted by Feldman was actually taken from a post on Reddit, as she has explained . She said the complicated answer has to do with "resonance of the speech sounds".

Directed by David Leitch or, as Deadpool calls him, "One of the Two Guys Who Killed John Wick's Dog", the movie ups the ante when it comes to action and gore. The pacing of the movie is excellent, as it holds your interest through its entirety.

Everyone seems to think Ryan Reynold's is doing an awesome job in the role, which is great. "I don't know why you would put your kid in show business", he said.

The highlight of Deadpool 2 is a terrific set piece when, after Deadpool assembles his own "X-Force", the team parachutes in to rescue Russell from a high-security transfer truck that Cable has in his sights. Eventually, though, it just wears you out.

The only few small gripes that I can have with this film is it's slightly disjointed story which does not give enough room for new characters to develop. Full of self-mockery, breaking superhero film conventions and some pretty good CGI, Deadpool 2 is a worthy sequel in line with the essence of the original.

What keeps this from being nothing more than an actor with an inflated ego trying to get another credit is Deadpool would be nothing more than a foul-mouthed, annoying, sex-driven unlikable egomaniac without the wickedly charming wit of Reynolds. Because, sometimes, to do the right thing you need to fight dirty.

Brolin is an excellent villain, and the cast of supporting characters like Domino, Bedlam and Shatterstar are all solid in their roles. Colbert started his monologue by talking about how many superhero movies have come out recently, including Avengers: Infinity Wars and Black Panther.
