Whether or not you feel that Deadpool 2 decisively lived up to the freshness of the original, it's hard to deny that it firmly outdid its predecessor where inspired, demented madness is concerned.
Ryan Reynolds and co. have once again served up a riotously funny, at times shocking and wonderfully subversive response to just about everything else in the superhero genre.
