A refreshing, hilarious and bloody take on a Superhero movie.

If only more "heroes" just nonchalantly killed their enemies eh? At it's core Deadpool is an origin story of how Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) becomes a nigh unkillable and more than slightly off-kilter hero. Again! Yes, because that previously happened in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. A fact they love bringing up throughout the course of the film.

You know you want to watch it.

Perhaps Deadpool's best ability is that of breaking the fourth wall, taking many opportunities to talk directly to the audience, often about things from other movies. It's very funny with humor aimed at adults. There's also nudity, sex scenes, action, violence and on screen gore which gets big thumbs up from me.

Despite having a predictable story, the way it's told is still pretty good and the acting, humor and special effects are great. All up it is definitely something I enjoyed and a film I'd like to watch again! I give it four and a half out of five fourth walls. Which is like... eighteen walls. It's that awesome. :)

Edit: Adjusted down from a perfect five. Why? Because I forgot my milestone marker was The Dark Knight.


  1. Yes, very fun movie.

    Oddly enough, in Salt Lake City it's now the cause of a bar/theater running afoul of an anti-stripper law that says you can't show full frontal nudity in a place that serves alcohol, so some overzealous cops decided that since the bar was serving alcohol and showing Deadpool that it violated that law. Dumb.

    1. That's an odd law, I suppose bars can't show Game of Thrones and the like either. Is there a problem between booze and boobs in that place? :P
