Action/Comedy: An unlikely superhero with a wicked sense of humor tries to stop a man from the future from killing a troubled and dangerous mutant teenager.
Following the murder of his girlfriend, Vanessa (MORENA BACCARIN), during a home invasion, former Special Forces op turned unlikely superhero Deadpool -- a.k.a. Wade Wilson (RYAN REYNOLDS) -- doesn't want to go on living. When not drowning his sorrows at the bar run by his friend, Weasel (T.J. MILLER), he tries to kill himself, but his immortality stymies that attempt. Like before, the hulking and metallic Colossus (voice of STEFAN KAPICIC) and the energy wave controlling Negasonic Teenage Warhead (BRIANNA HILDEBRAND) want him to join the X-Men, and he reluctantly agrees and signs on as a trainee.

Their first mission is to stop troubled mutant teenager Russell Collins (JULIAN DENNISON) from inflicting further damage -- via his fire-controlling abilities -- at the mutant rehabilitation school where he lives Deadpool talks him down, but when he learns the teen was reportedly abused and tortured by the administrators, he kills one of them, ends up captured -- with both his and the boy's superpowers controlled by collars around their necks -- and sent off to prison.

It's there where a man from the future with a vendetta, Cable (JOSH BROLIN), arrives and tries to kill Russell, with the now resurrected Deadpool only barely managing to save the teen. He then decides he must recruit other superheroes to help him battle the future man, but only Domino (ZAZIE BEETZ) -- whose superhero is managing to manipulate luck that keeps her out of harm's way -- survives. With Russell, a.k.a. Firefist, eventually teaming up with the massive Juggernaut, it's up to Deadpool, Colossus, and Domino to prevent Russell from making his first kill and turning him into the future killer who will alter Cable's world and thus send him back into the past.

If they're fans of the first film they definitely will.
For strong violence and language throughout, sexual references and brief drug material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
