Here’s What Everybody Is Saying About The ‘Deadpool’ Sequel
“Deadpool 2” may be one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2018, but two groups are bitterly divided on a general consensus about the sequel.
The Fox film doesn’t hit theaters in the U.S. until Friday, but critics and international viewers who already got to see the movie have vastly different opinions. (RELATED: There’s A New ‘Deadpool 2’ Trailer Out, And It Looks Downright Electric)
The Independent called the movie “wearisome,” and seemed pretty underwhelmed by the whole thing.

Same with the Los Angeles Times, The Guardian and about a dozen other publications.

Deadpool 2 misses the spark of the first one, but is still as goofy as we wanted. Our spoiler-free review: https://t.co/OI23M75FnG pic.twitter.com/3eATkGnI86

But non-critics couldn’t disagree more. Fans of the movie didn’t seem to be expecting much more than action, violence, and a healthy dose of irreverence.
Deadpool 2 reviews seem to be pretty across the board. My take is that it would be an extremely pleasant movie to watch on a plane, which is actually a compliment and something I encourage you all to do.

Watched #Deadpool2 last night. Quite a wild ride! Censorship wise not too bad either – only a couple mutes in India. Probably the best post credit scene from Marvel movies. Also Peter was a star! Plus some crazy cameos and lots of dick jokes. Definitely a big screen watch. pic.twitter.com/NV4T3odPCt

Deadpool 2 is FUCKING EXCELLENT!! I had zero expectations that they could top the first one, because the first one had the advantage of surprise. This has better characters, better story, more heart, great, great, great jokes.

Saw Deadpool 2 last night. Brilliant, hilarious, sexy & poignant all at the same time…..and that’s just my performance.

Deadpool 2 is incredibly entertaining.
It’s everything you love about the first one, just a little less of it, which is a very good thing. It also has heart, which is nice.

Deadpool 2 is better than Infinity War

The disagreement got so heated that Twitter devoted an entire moment to it.
I guess everyone’s just going to have to see it for themselves. I know I definitely will.
