'Deadpool 2' Is Now Certified Fresh On Rotten Tomatoes

The run was broken later after one single rotten tomato was recieved by Black Panther in its life time.

It's been two years since we last left Wade Wilson scarred but happy.

Jackman is given special thanks in the credits for use of his likeness, and the archive cameo appearance - though re-edited, there's no new footage of Jackman - allowed Reynolds and director David Leitch to finally include Wolverine in a Deadpool film, without undercutting the character's emotional death in 2017 film Logan. Fox's superhero franchises still have the PG-13 air of legitimacy to them, which means they're about as open to tossing Deadpool into the mix as they are a drunk Roger Rabbit. Did you love the violence? It's also filled with crass humor and language. I never go into a film hoping to hate it - I want every film I see to be great, folks - but I wasn't expecting much from Deadpool 2. And did you love the meta humor? Well, then kick back, because you're gonna get so much shoved down your throat you'll need a pen shoved in your backside to combat it. This is a huge part of Deadpool 2's story and character arcs. Some jokes are suited to the plot or situation; there's a Goonies reference that seemingly went over the head of my audience, as well as a fantastic Terminator line.

The general consensus seems to be: Yes, there will be more of these characters for sure. "Actually, for [screenwriters] Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and myself-we've been friends for 10 years, and in that time we all acquired families and sort of grown up a little bit".

Back home in the apartment he shares with his fiance, Vanessa (Morena Baccarin of "Gotham"), she and Wade talk of starting a family.

Even without the guns and katanas, Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool 2 would slay with its pop-culture winks. Fans wonder if the characters will be just as fresh and fun the second time around, if another story will be equally as amusing, and, in the case of Deadpool 2, if Ryan Reynolds' leather-clad anti-hero will be as raunchy and rambunctious as everyone remembers. He nearly steals the movie from Ryan Reynolds. "Worst of all is Karan Soni's taxi driver Dopinder, a weedy, emasculated Indian stereotype whose superhero aspirations make him the beta-male butt of the joke". Rob Delaney briefly showed promise as Peter while the longer-enduring Domino (Zazie Beetz) deserved more time on-screen to add sass and common sense to the Marvel mayhem into which appears time-travelling teddy-carrying frenemy Cable (Josh Brolin). Her new song for the film is called "Ashes" and also features Reynolds' character in the music video. While it yields some great moments, it also feels messy and a little unstructured, as if you're watching loosely-connected episodes of a sitcom rather than a cohesive movie heading somewhere with a objective.

The action scenes in Deadpool 2 are upscale but the transitions are bumpy; the sheer tension of a massive fight sequence is quickly suffixed with a slapstick gag, and you never really feel the stakes on your skin.
