Review: Deadpool

Foul Mouthed Fun, with heart

It's refreshing to see a comic book film with stakes as small as this - it's really just one guy's personal vendetta against another guy who wronged him, which escalates when the woman he loves gets involved. As Deadpool himself points out: this is really a love story - albeit one featuring bone crunching violence, colourful language and a superhero who jerks off with a toy unicorn - and the film does have a lot of heart. Beneath the wisecracking, blood soaked surface, there is a sweetness to the film which feels completely natural and makes the film utterly engaging. Oh - and it's under 2 hours! (aka normal feature film length).
