As for my quick and dirty review of the film, I thought it was a ton of fun.  I feel like I have to go back and watch it again for all stuff I missed while I was laughing.  Not much more that I can ask for when going to the theatre. Not as good as the first, because that set the table, but a fun ride all the same.  

Two blades up!

Saw it Saturday night, laughed my ass off for a good three quarters of the movie. Juggernaut was spot on after that Vinnie Jones embarrassment, Brolin was perfect as Cable. Applauded at the “can’t draw feet” line.

When DP attempted Black Widow’s ‘Hulk Lullaby’ on Juggernaut I fell out!  So funny and sharp witted.  

Best after credits scenes ever.

Great film overall.  Enjoyed it from start to finish, minus some of the time travel logic. 

I wasn't sure if the end credit scenes are canon or simply jokes? The reason I ask is if he saves Vanessa, doesn't that negate the whole movie? Also, why travel to save Peter after saving Vanessa? Wouldn't saving Vanessa set it up that he wouldn't have to save Peter later as well as being able to save all members of X-Force? It didn't make a lot of sense, but I'm guess the last scenes are not canon.

Not that I particularly care, but I'm pretty sure the aftercredits are considered canon.  My FB feed has been littered with stories about it so for those that need that confirmation...

As far as what I thought, for a sequel it was outstanding.  I expected a big let down or just a re-hashing of the first one or both.  But this one held up very well IMO.

My ignorance of the comics got in the way at times as I kept wondering who some of these characters were and if they were actually in the comic books but at the end of the day, I enjoyed it and had a good time. 

It is violent but somehow the violence seems cartoony.  There's a separation there that makes it palatable.  As opposed to Ash vs. the Evil Dead season 2 for example, which just seems like gore porn IMO.  I know it should be just as cartoony but it was very off putting for me whereas Deadpool wasn't.

Loved seeing Juggernaut.  Thought the CGI was pretty good.  Not perfect but for all intents and purposes, Ol' Juggernaut was there in all of his glory.  Does anyone else think that the ripping in half scene was a swipe at the Ultimate Hulk/Wolverine battle?

And, as sappy as I apparently am, I was all too accepting of the ending.  In fact, when Cable decides to make his sacrifice I thought he was going to go back a little further himself and help Wade out.  As confusing and complicated as time travel can get though, it was easier to just accept it and get the Hollywood ending.  

Why so many don't seem to want a happy ending in favor realism...at the movies(!) is beyond me.

I saw it yesterday and thought it was hilarious! While still not a fan of the character in the comics, I have to say I enjoyed both movies.

How come this Colossus is the best since the Claremont
days? Just shows how the comic version has been
underused and done wrong, sad.

We can spoil now, right? It's Juggernaut. We'll have to agree to disagree. I
thought that was a pitch perfect portrayal of the character.

---

I didn't hate the movie's portrayal of Juggernaut, but it did feel off to
me. When I first encountered the character he was this massive, wide guy
whose forward progress could not be halted. The movie gave him a
bodybuilder's physique, and he didn't seem as "unstoppable" as he should be.

Oh, and I would have liked to see his uniform.

Still, I guess those are relatively minor quibbles.

*********

That's odd.  Because, if I remember the credits correctly, Juggernaut was played by himself.

Ryan Reynolds was Juggernaut with a bit of digital help.

****

I'm in the same boat, Shawn. I have never liked Deadpool in the comics, but I love the movies. I thought the first one was a bit better overall but the sequel did not disappoint me at all. I think not particularly caring about the characters in the comics actually helps with the enjoyment of the movies (or tv shows) because you're not disappointed when something you loved in the comics gets changed. I never liked Legion in New Mutants, but the Legion TV show is great.

Remarkable film! The thing I like best about it is how little it had to do with the first movie. Obviously the same characters, but this was fresh and new, in a different direction. Not really any baggage (well, except for Vanessa - and even that wasn't "baggage" as much as new material.)

X-Force getting taken down was just a damned riot. Juggernaut tearing Deadpool in half reminds me of hearing about a Marvel comic where the Hulk tore Wolverine in half. I cannot imagine that was any good, or nearly as enjoyable as this was.

I know I missed a lot of in-jokes, but what I saw kept me laughing for two hours. Intended for a specific audience - as in PLEASE LEAVE YOUR KIDS AT HOME! But I had a great time.

The tech boys and I saw this last night.  I'm sure I missed some jokes due to laughing so hard at what came before.  I loved the in-jokes.  X-Factor - Origins had to be one of the funniest bits of the movie... but the end credits topped that.

Something I'm wondering about...

In the movie, at the end, Colossus has a really notable dent in his head. Like, this thing looked fist-sized.

First, I don't recall having seen this in the comics. Was that ever done?

Second, if he changes back to flesh and blood... wouldn't he likely die right away from a traumatic head injury? I mean, he's got a friggin' dent in his head!

Just thinking out loud. And probably overthinking as well. :)

One thing I appreciated about this movie, was power
levels being distinctly separated, the same with the
first movie.

In comics it seems writers sometime fall into "the
lower power grade guy somehow overcoming the high
power grade characters."

They made it where Cable and Deadpool had zero chance
against Juggernaut. He quickly dealt with both of
them.

And in the first movie Deadpool could do nothing
against Colossus (not including insults).
