Helmed by Tim Miller and distributed by 20th Century Fox, Deadpool 2 is an American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Deadpool. The film, that is written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Ryan Reynolds, is a sequel to Deadpool and the second film in the Deadpool trilogy, as well as the eleventh installment in the X-Men film series. The film, that hit the screens worldwide today (May 18, 2018), stars Reynolds in the title role alongside Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, TJ Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Jack Kesy. In the film, Deadpool forms the team X-Force to protect a young mutant from Cable. Though the film received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised its humor, performances and action sequences, with some calling it better than the first film, it also drew some criticism.

Ars Technica: The biggest problem, really, is the amount of time and emotional energy spent on momentum-stalling developments. Deadpool 2 gets surprisingly hung up on obeying rules of continuity—and this results in long, drawn-out, no-jokes-no-action attempts to connect the first film to the second and to ground characters’ motivations. Deadpool, more than any other Marvel Comics hero, huffs the fumes of plot dadaism, which fits Wilson’s eff-the-world attitude to a tee. Thus, even when Wilson’s’ character makes certain sequel breakthroughs, he almost instantly rebuffs them with ridiculous jokes and gags—so why’d we even bother with the slow-and-sappy stuff? Overall, Comedy sequels are tough, and Deadpool 2 isn’t a failure by any stretch. But I hope an inevitable Deadpool 3 completely flips the sequel script with that final spike as an inspiration point.

Indian Express: It is all too confusing in the beginning, and much too smart at times — again — for its own good. But as Reynolds gets other people to match his wits against, Deadpool 2 starts hitting the spots it wants too, much more effortlessly than its prequel.

Times of India: Audaciously crafted and cleverly written, Deadpool 2 has the ability to end the Avengers’ reign at the box office. Credit goes to the writers for ensuring that the constant wisecracks, digs at other superheroes or pop culture references, don’t distract a viewer from the story’s emotional core and it’s protagonist’s moral ambiguity. While the action is brilliantly shot and executed, the comedy smartly doubles up as a social commentary on racism, sexism, body shaming and sexual harassment.
Variety: At its best, the film resembles an ultraviolent Looney Tunes spinoff, with Reynolds once again going full Bugs Bunny behind either a mask or a mountain of makeup — his extremities all akimbo, his rapid-fire comic patter usually landing on just the right side of obnoxiousness. At its worst, there’s something mustily mid-’90s about its self-congratulatory rudeness, its sensibilities lying somewhere between a Farrelly brothers film and a Mountain Dew commercial. Lurking behind its constant self-critiques — pointing out plot holes before you can, acknowledging when its puckish humor edges toward racism but making the joke anyway — is a strange combination of cleverness and cowardice, a self-inoculation against the very responses it goes out of its way to provoke. No matter how far “Deadpool 2” thinks it’s pushing boundaries, it makes sure that even when a gag falls flat, the joke is always on you.
