I know several people who have already seen advance screenings, so I'm going to be proactive and put a SPOILER WARNING in the thread title.  No need to use inviso-text from here on out.

Ye have been warned!!!

I'll be seeing it Thursday night. I've been hearing good early reviews, so I am hopeful it will be as fun as the first one.

I saw the first movie on in-hotel-room HBO last year, and a near-uncut version on cable TV last month.

Definitely fun, but I'll stick with the same strategy.

Already got tickets to see this with my younger sister, for a 9pm Friday night showing... at a multiplex sandwiched between two noted Western Mass. college towns...

I fully expect a particularly raucous crowd--which will either be immensely annoying, or play well to DEADPOOL 2's strengths!

Like Bill, I'll wait until it comes out cable/Netflix.  I did enjoy the first one, but not enough to actually go out to the theater and pay to see it.

I enjoyed the new film. For me, it's on a par with the first one.  Naturally,  if you hate Deadpool and the first film, you won't like it -- and why are you in this thread, if you do hate the character or the first one?

There are some cool surprises, and some fun in-jokes, and over-the-top action. Be sure to remain seated through for a couple of mid credits scenes,  but you don't need to stick it out to the very end of the credits. And, as with the first one, this is not an appropriate film for young children.

I'm guessing the first two bits of the end credits are canon? It's get very meta-jokey as it continues, so it's hard to tell.

SPOILERS



I liked most of it, but as a Colossus fan, I really
wanted that fight to be a lot better than it was. His
fight in the first film had more impact and intensity.

Thought it was very good, not great, but still a better sequel than I was expecting.  Some big laughs, though not as consistent as the first film.

If you liked or loved the first one, there's no reason to not see Part 2.

I think Shaun's review is exactly right.

(I guess my one big disappointment is that, while Zazie Beetz is absolutely gorgeous as Domino, I found her performance oddly flat and lackluster  Not terrible, just... there.)

For what they were doing with the character (I’ve never cared for the comic version, who is mostly a cipher used by artists to draw chick with gun poses), I thought she was hilarious. Having a character who relied on her luck powers just skipping around carefree was a great counterpoint to Deadpool’s frenetic energy and Cable’s intensity.
