Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds is Marvel's "merc with a mouth", Deadpool, in this origin story following the former Special Forces operative turned mercenary. Subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, he adopts an alter ego and hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool first appears in 2009's Fox/Marvel film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. After wooing Comic Con audiences with a spectacular CGI short, this feature looks to follow the wise-cracking, self-healing mercenary as he shoots bullets, chops heads, and NOT get his mouth sewn shut.

This is director Tim Miller's feature debut after making a couple of short films. His background is in video games and visual effects (having worked on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World).

I don't get it

I find Ryan Reynolds sense of humor and delivery very grating and obnoxious. Even if the film is an original idea, I just found myself rolling my eyes.

Good fun.

Although with a thin plot, its entertaining, funny, action-packed and irreverent.

As a sly demolition job on the superhero movie, it sure as hell beats “Kick-Ass.”

Loud, lewd, inventive and outrageous, Deadpool is a delight. All credit to Reynolds and co. for having the steel balls to go this far.

Bloody, shallow and oh-so-smug, Deadpool is so eager to offend that it’d almost be sweet if it wasn’t so, well, relentlessly annoying.

The fourth-wall-smashing is fun in a Ferris Bueller kind of way, but it’s never pulled off with the devious panache of Blazing Saddles, let alone Funny Games or Hellzapoppin’.

Neurotic and needy – and very entertaining. An innocent pleasure.

Drops trou to reveal itself as a really raunchy, very dirty and pretty funny goof on the entire superhero ethos...

A fun, if patchy, alternative to the glut of ‘the world is about to end unless we do something’ comic-book films.
