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).

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.

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.

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

Seems like I may be the only person on earth that isn't on the Deadpool buzz. I am a huge fan of 'all killer, no filler' movies and I found Deadpool too short - the pacing felt off and it just seemed to end suddenly. I thought Ryan Renolds played it well but ultimately I left the theatre disappointed. Maybe it gets better on rewatch?

About time a comic book superhero movie was made for adults... I am not steeped in Deadpool comic lore, however being a huge fan of Ryan Reynolds I really enjoyed this fun filled R rated flick. Finally we are not treated as simple dumbed down kids and can have an fun time with over the top action and comic book gore and violence with blood and people...

It is just so bad. Unfunny and very, very boring. Not sure what all the fuss is about this film. All it is is a mindless fluff than comes out of a naked rear end as a big splatt.

Although Deadpool has received a ton of praise as a game-changer for the never-ending super-hero genre juggernaut, the movie’s bones are completely conventional - average, even. This is a generally unspectacular variation on the standard super-hero origin story that we’ve all seen time and time again, and the smart-ass tone and fun (but only moderately...

It's great when a movie makes a bold move to be restricted. Deadpool pulls it off really well with utterly awesome 4th wall breaking

In a year populated with Superhero / Comic-book movies, Deadpool enters the fray first as this lovable anti-hero delivers a truly one of a kind not so superhero movie. Wade Wilson is a mercenary for hire who’s unfortunately stricken by cancer. Desperate to find a cure, he enlists on a secret experimental program *cough cough Weapon X cough cough*. However...
